Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GX Router (WRT54GX2)
My web pages are loading pretty slow now. It was always very fast. I do not have my wireless secure. Can you show me how to put in a password and secure it?
To setup and improve your wireless network’s signal, you can change your Wireless Network Name (SSID) and/or try using a different channel.
Changing your Router’s SSID and Channel
Access the router’s web-based setup page.
Accessing the Router’s Web-Based Setup Page
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Go to the Address bar and enter your router’s IP Address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Links-ys routers) then press [Enter].
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name space blank, type in your router’s password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.
When the router’s web-based setup page appears, click the Wireless tab.
Look for Wireless Network Name (SSID) and if it’s still set to ‘linksys’ change it to something unique then click Save Settings.
click the Wireless tab and select the Wireless Security tab.
Select WEP under Security Mode.
Select any number on the Default Transmit Key field to determine which key you’ll be using. In this example, we selected number one.
Select 64 bits on WEP Encryption
Type a wireless network password of your choice such as “MySecretKey,” then click Generate.
NOTE: You should come up with a password that is unique for your network and is a combination of numbers and letters up to 10 characters.
The result will be a string of random characters. Copy the resulting string since this will be the key to your wireless network.
NOTE: Do not give this key to anyone. This will be your wireless network’s key.
And click save settings..
