To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, you need to at least configure the wireless router with encryption, and the SSID, and change the router's default login password.
Please follow these instructions :-
To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: - 1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable. 2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address. 3. Enter the router setup, login and password 4. Change the admin password 5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast. 6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA). The encryption key can be easily set up using a passphrase (it can be an alpha numeric phrase or words). 7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router. 8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings. 9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router. 10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly. To access the Internet you need to connect the DSL or cable modem to the WAN (Internet) port on the wireless router.
To improve wireless signal from your wireless router you can try changing the wireless channel of it from the router setup page, set the wireless channel to the highest one so it will avoid interferences on your location........
PC > Connect to port 1 of the router Modem's Ethernet > Connect to router's Internet or WAN port
Then do a power cycle, unplug the power to the modem and router. Wait for 30 seconds then plug the modem first, wait for the lights to go solid, then power up the router. Your laptop should see the wireless signal now.
Hi...I am not sure if you need the SSID or the network key? The SSID is the network name, the one you see displayed in 'Available wireless networks'. The network key (also called passphrase, authentication key, PSK etc) is the one Windows asks for to connect to a secure network.
If you need the network key/passphrase:
1. Login to your router, by typing http://192.168.1.1 into a web browser (or whichever IP address is correct for your router).
2. You should see a popup box, requesting your username and password. If you have not changed these, they are username: admin and password: admin - otherwise please enter the username and password you have set.
3.If successful, you should now see your router user interface.
Go to Advanced > Wireless Security. If you are using WPA encryption, the network key (password) you need should be displayed under PSK string. (Details taken from Dynamode UK website).
Hope this helps you, but please come back to Fixya if you need further help.
Cable modems and routers must be turned on in a specific way.
First, unplug both the router and modem. Next, plug the ethernet cable from the modem, into the cable router, and unplug the cable from the modem to the computer.
Next, turn on the modem, and wait for all of the lights to stay static (usually there's 4 lights, the main one we're interested in, is the status light).
Next, plug in and turn on your router.
You should now be able to access the router and configure it for your internet connection.
