Question about Computers & Internet
Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router
in the address bar of your browser.
In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it.
Just replace all of that with the ip address of your router.
By default the ip address should be set to 192.168.1.1.
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default both the username and password are admin. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.
Click the Wireless Settings link near the left side of the page.
In the box called SSID put a name that you make up. You will need to remember this name because it will be used to connect to your wireless network. Do not make it obvious to guess, the network name should be difficult for your neighbors to guess. If you can not think of anything, simply use your first name.
In the box called Channel, pick a random channel number. Channels make it so that you and your neighbors can use your own wireless networks without interfering with each other. By picking a random channel you reduce the chance of your neighbor using the same channel as you.
Choosing your network security type can be challenging. Use the table below to help you decide which encryption type is best for you.
Put a dot into the WEP radio button.
Select Open System from the Authentication Type drop down box.
Select 128bit from the Encryption Strength drop down box.
Put a dot into the Key 1 radio button.
If you are using WEP Now you need to make up your network key.
It doesn't matter what this key is, as long as it is random. A network key is a password that is 26 characters long, and made up of only the letters A,B,C,D,E,F and the numbers 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. If you are using 128 bit WEP, then your key must be exactly 26 characters long, and the more random it is, the better it is. Here is an example of a random 128 bit network key:
Onnce you have made up your key, write it down somewhere. You will need it at each computer that you are going to connect to your network.
Now put the key you made up in the box called Key 1.
When you're finished, click Apply near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
And that's it! You're done!
