Hi, Follow the steps below to enable security on the wireless modem:

1. Open the browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari) on a computer connected to the router.
2. Access the router usually by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Select security options as 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)'. Set the 'Authentication Type' as automatic. Set the 'Encryption Strength' as 64-bit.
6. In Key 1 type a 10 digit number. Apply the settings.


I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

I wanna protect my connection from outside users i dont know how to protect it !! please help me out!


You listed your problem ubder: modems. A modem you do not need to protect further. You can only use the connection by hooking up a cable to it. If you have a wireless router connected to your modem that should be secured. You do this by entering a security code in the setup of the router. just enter the router's IP address in your web browser, log in to it,go to the security tab under wireless setup and enter a security code. (write it down because you will need it to connect wireless). You can not connect to it without this code. This way your wireless connection is secured and can not be used by outsiders.

I cannot find the security key on the bottom of my motorola surfboard modem


Contact your local Internet Service Provider for assistance with your cable-modem.

Or, if you have connected a wireless-router to the cable-modem, and now you are trying to connect a wireless-device to the wireless-router, that's where a "security-key" is needed.

Connect Wii via wireless router


The modems wireless feature is always on. For some reason entering the security code wasn't working so I turned off the security feature and it worked fine. After the wii downloaded updates I turned on the security to the most secure settings and everything continued to work. I guess maybe the wii update fixed the issue or I just needed to change to the most secure setting.

did you ever changed the default login? If not just google for router passwords and your model should appear. If you changed it and forget, you should reset the device.

Westell model 327w


you can run another ethernet cable from your westell modem to your laptop. hence, if you want your laptop to connect wirelessly, it must have a wireless card/adapter inside. if it already has a wireless adapter, it should automatically detect your wireless network and you just need to connect to it (note: you need to enter the correct wireless security/network key if you have enabled it on your modem). by default the serial number is the ssid of the router and the wireless security is disabled. but if you are not sure of your wireless security, log on to the modem's web user interface by typing http://192.168.1.1 on your web browser's address. then go to the wireless section and verify your wireless settings from there.

hope this'll help you.

ciao!
