You should be able to download software for router at

Not sure why you need software to make a secure connection though. If you type in the address bar this will take you to 'set up home'. This is where you can change security settings. If you have never put an initial password on to access the site then when it asks you for one just leave it blank. If you are thinking about putting WPA security on (most secure) then check that your PCI card will actually support it. Otherwise you will have to set up WEP security.

My connection is running slow or lagging how do i keep people on the outside of my home from using my connection

Hi. This is a problem with wireless connrctions.
You need to turn on security on your router, and assign a security level and password.

Here is the link to the Belkin website with the instructions on setting up security on your Router.

These are Belkin's official instructions for all Belkin Routers, an none of them have a password asigned to them from the factory.
