Hello

To secure your network you basically just need to put a WEP, WPA, WPA2 key on the connection, which prevents unauthenticated users to connect without knowing the code.

You just need to access the router as the Admin user and go to security settings. Then just select to use one of the security protocols(WEP,WPA,WPA2).

You do not specify to what router you are using, so i cannot give you a link for the manual until you give me the make and model no. of the router. Mail me with the info and i will find the manual for you.

Kind regards
Andrea

You have to go into the computer you set up the router on and change the connection type.

It is asking for an access code to an access point . What is that?


Wireless networks can be secure or unsecure. Anyone can connect to an unsecure site simply by searching for available sites and choosing an unsecure one to connect to. There are inherit risks associarted with unsecure sites and you should NEVER do any financial or highly personal transactions on an unsecure network. Secure networks require a password (access code) to complete connection. This code is provided by the owner/administrator of the network. If you are allowed to connect to such a network, you should already be aware of the code. Otherwise you are basically not invited to the party.

I want to secure an unsecured linksys router


Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

How to remove a network/signal?


Connect to the unsecure network, either directly with a cable, or connect via wifi. Once you are connected, open your web browser and go to:

http://192.168.2.1

There should be no password, just hit enter, then you can change the SSID and/or channel, etc.

I pulled the instructions from Belkin support:

I have installed uninstalled my laptop to the netgear wireless. It won't connect to the secured wireless but only to tthe unsecured It then says TCP?IP disabled for this connection


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, which is the Netgear, the WiFI / AP router or the wireless networking card of the laptop?

Offhand, that there are at least two (2) networks that could be detected by the laptop indicates that the WiFi is both receiving and transmitting (it works and therefore the issue is settings & configurations). Which of the networks is yours; the secured or unsecured?

Alternately, determine the SSID of your WiFi network and the PASSKEY used or the security system used (if one is used in your system/network). Additionally, are you using the Netgear Smart Wizard Wireless Assistant or the Windows built-in Wireless Network Connection?

For the secured system, use the PASSKEY determined as per above; for the unsecured, it may be employing MAC filter, try manually inputting the IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway.

Postback result(s) / updates.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
