Question about Dell TrueMobile 1184 Wireless Broadband Router (802.11b) 9U555 (9U555)
I entered the 128bit codes but do not know what to do afterwards to secure the 1184 router
Routers can be secured in two common manners.
First the network access as you have started using WEP which I will discuss more later.
Second by assigning an administrator password. This prevents anyone except a person possessing the password from configuring your router. This is good to do however if you forget the password resetting the router will clear all of your configuration -- so keep notes to reconfigure your router in a secure place before assigning this password.
Now as to WEP encryption -- first it is preferred your network name (SSID) be unique in your area hopefully you have already changed that. Second WEP generally requires the entry of a passphrase that causes the generation of 4 keys and in a separate box the selection of one of those 4 keys as active. Wireless adapters I have seen either accept a passphrase and active key number like the router or they require the specific active key value from the router. Keys contain hex values characters 0-9 and A-F and are not identical to the alphanumeric passphrase that was entered. Entering the appropriate value into the adapter is required for successful connection.
Security is achieved on the network not by entering the "password" every time you connect to the network but by storing the passphrase (password) and/or the generated by-products in both the computer and router in advance. Since no unauthorized persons know the passphrase or password the access on the wireless is secured. Changing the passphrase periodically is not a bad idea to maintain the security of the network (must be changed in both the router and the device with a wireless adapter. Loss of a computer means loss of the control of the passphrase and should result in a change of the passphrase too.
If you have any additional questions please respond to this with an additional comment.

You must have a Non-secured Wifi signal or know the Security Key info to sign on. Also, I found that my PSP runs better with my routers Security set to WEP 64bit than it does WEP 128bit. You may kow this. I do respect you. If I write something that you already know, please realize i am not trying to offend you in any way.
