In your web browser type in www.192.168.2.1
When it asks for a password press enter or try admin if that doesn't work. When you log in look for a section that says wireless security section. It will ask whether you want WEP or WPA. Choose WPA and set the password.

SOURCE: How to set up security enabled facility

You can try these steps to configure the BR6216MG router for wireless security:

1. connect a computer to the router's numbered port.
2. launch a browser and type in 192.168.2.1, user name is admin and the password is 1234 (unless you changed it, if you do, then use that password)
3. Once you are in, click on wireless then click on Security.
4. Under Security, you can set it to either WEP or WPA. But for ease of use, I suggest you use WEP.
5. Set it to WEP then 64 bit for the key length.
6. You can then select ASCII or hex (that depends if your wireless adapter support both or one only). For hex, you can only use the letters A-F and numbers 0-9. For ascii, you can use characters, letters and numbers.
7. Set the default key. Only the key you select it in the "Default key" will take effect.
8.You can now fill the selected text box with the password that you want. Then click Apply.

If you have questions, just ask me then I'll answer your question as soon as I can.

Setting the router's administrator password

All Belkin Router's ship without an admin password. If you require an admin password then follow the below instructions.

Setup steps:

  1. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports on the router.
  2. Open a web browser on the computer.
  3. In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1
  4. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.

  5. Click on System Settings under Utilities on the left-hand side of the opened page.
    systemsettings.jpg
  6. You will see a feature called, "Administrator Password". Type in your current password (default leave blank).
    .adminpwd.jpg
  7. Click "Apply Changes". Your new password is now active.

Note: Do not forget the new password and keep it somewhere safe. If you forget your password, you'll be unable to access your router's settings. If you forget or lose your password, you'll need to "Perform a hardware reset on the router". This will reset the password to its default, as well as erase any and all other settings you may have changed

Cannot get the roku box to work the signal comes up with a lock on it did work exallent until christmas how do i get the signal un locked


When you have the wireless signal with a lock it indicates that your wireless network is secured.
Your wireless network has a security key enabled
Access the router page
Go to the wireless settings or WAN settings
Check what is the security mode(WEP/WPA)
If WEP check which Key is selected(key1or2or3or4)
If you are not able to find the key create a new one
If you change the key here ensure that it is updated on the wireless computers as well
