Are you asking how to set the login password to the router or how to turn on encryption for the wireless network so that any wireless user has to provide an authentication key when connecting to your network?

In either case, the user manual generally gives clear instructions and most companies provide those manuals online. Start here and enter your s/n at the bottom. If you turn on encryption, write your key down because you also will need to configure your pc or laptop wireless with that key to connect in the future.

I want to know how i can make my Linksys Router WRT160N work as access point


Hi,

By default Linksys router behaves as Access point. On some router you have to enable the wireless function.

So the following to configure the router Wireless Access Point

Click the below link
http://192.168.1.1

Now it will ask for username and password

Enter username = ( blank) and password = admin
If you can't login using this credentials then you will have to reset the router

If you logged in . Then click on Wireless > Wireless security

On this screen select

Security Mode : WPA Personal
WPA Algorithm : TKIP
WPA shard Key : "enter a password here"
Group Key Renewal : set to default

Click on save settings. After that restart router .
Now your wireless network is secured and you will have to type the WPA shared key inorder to connect to router when it prompts. You can connect as many devices as you wish since it is a access point

Thanks

Vote me If it helps

How to initially configure the access point


Should work right out of the box. Are you asking what type security you should set up?

There is password security, turn off the broadcast security, MAC address security and others.

May I suggest Network Magic to help you set up and maintain your network.

I use the paid pro version and love it.

Get it free - google Network Magic

Don't know my password , trying to connect with my new MAC


Hello,

If you are looking for your wireless security code, you can verify it by accessing the router's interface.

Open a browser and go to 192.168.1.1 by default the password is admin. Go to Wireless and then Wireless Security just copy your wireless security settings and enter in on your MAC's wireless settings.

My wireless access point SMC


Thank you cgahongayire.

Follow these steps to retrieve the wireless key:

1) Connect a computer wired directly to your accesspoint.
2) Assign a static IP on the computer with the range of 192.168.2.x (x is any number from 3-253).
3) If it prompts you for a user name and a password, user name is admin and password is smcadmin and click Login.
4) Select Advanced Setup. It will give you the window for the access point.
5) Select Security under Radio Interface 2. You can see which security is set on your AP. If it is set as WPA, the shared key is your network key. If WEP, the network key across the selected key is your password.

Take note that these instructions are if the IP settings of the Wireless AP have not been changed. If it is, you have to ask what is the IP first.
