Log on to the web interface of the router . You can do this by going to Start --> Run -- > cmd --> ipconfig
chk for the default gateway .. this is the IP address of the router. Put ths on your browser. Look for Wireless security. Do as instructed on the screen.


Use the same password details in your wireless card.
