Want a secure line


kb19073-001_en.png NOTE: Image may vary depending on the type of router and computer you are using.
To setup your router's wireless security settings:
i. Accessing the web-based setup page
ii. Setting-Up the Wireless Security
Accessing the web-based setup page

Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page by opening a web browser. On the Address bar, enter your router's local IP address then press [Enter].

NOTE: The default IP Address of Linksys routers is "192.168.1.1". For instructions on accessing the web-based setup page using a Mac computer, click here.

Step 2:
When the login prompt appears, enter your router's Username and Password.

NOTE: The default password is "admin" and the Username field is left blank. If you have set a password before but forgot it, you need to reset the device. For instructions on how to reset a Linksys router, click here.

Step 3:
On the Setup page, click the Wireless > Wireless Security.

NOTE: If some of the tabs are missing in the web-based setup page, upgrade the firmware of your router. For instructions, click here. You can also set the wireless security of your Linksys E-Series routers with Cisco Connect. To learn how, click here.

kb19073-002_en.png

On the Wireless Security sub-tab, there are various wireless security options that you can choose from.

kb19073-003_en.png

However, as mentioned earlier, the three most commonly used security modes are WEP, WPA Personal (or WPA Pre-Shared Key), and WPA2 Personal. The instructions below will show you how to set up the following security modes. On the other hand, the WPA2/WPA Enterprise Mixed Mode, WPA Enterprise, WPA2 Enterprise, and RADIUS security modes will only work if the router is connected to a RADIUS server.
Setting-Up the Wireless Security



Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)

WEP can be a 64-bit key with 10 hexadecimal digits or a 128-bit key with 26 hexadecimal digits. This encryption will prevent other users from connecting to your wireless network. It will also protect your wireless transmissions from being accessed by other users.

NOTE: In case the screen on your router's web-based setup page looks different, click here.

Step 1:
On Security Mode, select WEP.

kb19073-004_en.png

Step 2:
Under WEP Encryption, select 40 / 64-bit (10 hex digits) and enter a unique word in the Passphrase field.



NOTE: The 128-bit key uses a higher level of encryption compared to the 64 bit WEP. It uses a 104 bit (26 Hex Character).

Step 3:
Click the Generate button and copy the string of letters and numbers displayed in the space provided for Key 1. The Key 1 contains the wireless password.

NOTE: You can also create your own Wireless Password (Key 1) given that it is in hexadecimal format. The hexadecimal system consists of the characters 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D,E, and F. You can only choose 10 characters (in any given order) from that set.

kb19073-006_en.png

Step 4:
Click kb19073-007_en.png.

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA)

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is a Wi-Fi standard designed to improve the security features of WEP. WPA is stronger than WEP encryption. PSK and PSK2, the two types of WPA, give you a choice between two encryption methods: the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP), which incorporates Message Integrity Code (MIC) to provide protection against hackers, and Advanced Encryption System (AES), which utilizes a symmetric 128-Bit block data encryption.

NOTE: For older versions of Linksys routers, WPA Personal is also referred to as WPA Pre-Shared Key. Refer to the image below for an example.

kb19073-008_en.png


To set up WPA Personal on a Linksys router, follow the steps below:

Step 1:
On Security Mode, select WPA Personal.

kb19073-009_en.png

NOTE: If you are unable to find the WPA Personal or WPA2 Personal in the list of choices for the Security Mode then you might need to upgrade the firmware of your router to its latest version. Upgrading the firmware can fix the bugs of the previous version and update its other features.

Step 2:
Enter your Passphrase.

NOTE: The Passphrase must consist of at least eight characters and is case-sensitive.
