In order to secure your Router's signal, log in to the router and go to the Wireless section. Here you'll find your SSID (Network Name) and Security settings. In the Security area you can choose your security method, and set the Passcode for your router. Once this is set, any access to your router will need this passcode in order to gain access to the Internet.

SOURCE: D-Link DIR-625 - Unsecure connection

How do you know that you are connecting and there is no security? There first thing to check is the router settings. You should type into the browser 192.168.1.1 (or whatever you have configured your router's IP address for). Enter the user name and password for the router. On the next screen you will notice a link for wireless settings. Click this and on the new page check the bottom section that says "Wireless Security Mode". It should be set to something other than "none". Post back and let me know what it is set to.

SOURCE: setting up a belkin n wireless router. How do I

You have to go into the setup for the router. Most default to the 192.168.1.1 IP address. You would type that address into your internet browser and hit enter. Then you will be asked for a name and password. If you have your belkin manual it will tell you the default name and password. Once in the settings you can change the password. You can also turn off SSID broadcasting, enable the highest level of security that your particular router supports in conjunction with your computer and enable MAC authentication. If you enable MAC authentication you have to type in the MAC address for each device you wish to have access to the router.

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.

How do I turn on my laptop in order to use ot wirelessly?


Hi

Enable your wireless connections and search for wireless connection that in unsecured or secured connection. For secured connection, you need to encode the WEP password to be able to access into the internet. For unsecured connection, you can connect directly and automatically.

I hope it helps you.

Make sure your router connection shows as unsecure when you see it in the list of available connections,if it is secure,u will need the passkey.If it isnt that,go to your device manager and see if the drivers are installed for your wireless adapter:)

Router secure connection


The password you are changing only will protect the Administration of the router. You need to setup what is called, "Wireless Encryption" on your router's configuration. There should be a tab on the Configuration page at 192.168.1.1 which will have acronyms like WEP, WPA, etc. That's the page you want to configure for your router. Then your wireless connection will show up as a "Secured" connection from your pc.

How to get rid of old "unsecured" wireless network


SLRUSS63,

Are you referring to the Linksys SSID showing up when you browse for available wireless networks? Also, are you in an apartment building or otherwise relatively close to other houses/residents? It is possible that you and a neighbor both have Linksys APs and if neither was secured originally, your neighbor could have been connecting to your AP and vice versa. This definitely would explain slowness especially if you or your neighbor does any type of video or audio streaming.

One way to test this is to shutoff your Linksys router and view available wireless networks on your computer. If "Linksys" still shows up, it is most likely someone else's router/AP.

As long as your SSID shows up and you can only connect to it via the WEP key, your AP is secure.

Let me know if you get different results than I explained above.

SECURITY ISSUE ON LAPTOP- UNSECURED ON NETWORK


You didn't specify what router you are using and what type of connection. I assume you are using wireless connection from your laptop. What you need to do is setup security on your router. I can't give you any specifics because I don't know the model of your router. Please read documentation and try to go to wireless security on your router and setup 64-bit WEP then specify 10-digit code. Save your configuration. Try to connect your laptop to the network. If it prompts specify the same WEP security then enter the same 10-digit code. It should work.

Good luck!

Security


Till the time you put a access code for the wireles it would show it as a unsecure connection.You can change this by accessing the router page.Just type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of internet explorer.Than it would ask you for username and password.Its ussually admin and the password field blank.Than go to wireless settings and the security to WEP.than you can put a password of either 5 or 10 digits.U can put your phone # which would be easy to remember and than just save the setting.Next time when you would try to connet to it than it would ask you to put the access code and will show up as secure connection.
I hope that helps
