For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.

Click on wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I just want to know how can i open my sd528 kpt phone that requires a phone lock code to enter.i dont know what code to enter.


SECURITY CODE:

If you are talking about the security lock code to enter into the phone then once it is lost nothing can be done except flashing the mobile . Because if anybody can give the security code created then who ever who steals your phone can get into it and get your valuable information.

So as safety precaution to avoid that they have designed it such that if you forget the security lock you have to reset the mobile memory by flashing the mobile at an authorized service center.So while flashing the mobile all the data in the mobile memory will be lost and you can again start using the mobile.

How can I be sure my linksys security is up to date without the original disc that came with the router? I am trying to be sure that my linksys is not an open gateway for neighbors to steal access from...


Hi,
If you want to make sure that the signal from your router is secured, the only way you need to do about that is to put in a password or passphrase before connecting to the wireless connection. that is the security the router can give you. unless they know the code. they wont be able to connect to your router freely. and about the updates on the linksys, it is ok not to update at this point. and even if you dont have your disc. the router will still work. the disc only give you a software for the router to connect automatically. while windows can already give you that option.

Hope this helps. thank you for using Fixya,

No problem just purchased and going online for 6 months tech support. can't seem to find out how to do this


haaa, HP offered on-line services if only if you pay...but it won't do any good because it only could solve low-end user problems who don't know how to connect computer to router/modem, who don't know how to stop invader steal their internet services(most low-end users even didn't know it) thru wireless router...
uless your computer still could run internet at least O.S/Bios, beyond that you can't solve your problem by on-line services, or phone-services.

SECURE N ROUTER


If you don't want people juming on your wireless network to surf for free, you need to lock it down with a password. You will need to log into the router to access the setup, and you can configure wireless security and create a password for your network. The following link describes how to do this, specifically step 5:

How do i block someone from illegally stealing my wireless intern


Hello,

You have two options to stop someone from stealing your wireles connection.

The first is to use a more secure encryption.
Use WPA2 personnal with AES encryption.
You can set this security mode by logging on to your router and changinhg the wireless security.

The next solution is to turn on MAC filtering and make sure her computer is not listed as a safe MAC address.
This is also turned on from the router.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Pat

I've locked the wifi connection so only my laptop can access it how do i open it to make it free for everyone around the wifi router?


Just "undo" what you did to "lock" it.
Then, run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard",
and pick an SSID and a password,
and tell the password *ONLY* to your friends/family,
since you don't want somebody sitting in their car, outside your home,
to "steal" your Internet access (for "hacking" purposes).

How do I lock my RCA DCW615R router?


You Router supports either WEP or WPA Security. First thing to do is enable the security, it will become difficult to enter from other users.
IF your using a default gateway (192.168.x.x) which is your Router Address. You can enter by Internet Explorer to go inside the Firmware of your Router (http://192.168.0.1) then enter.

This is an example of firmware worksheet:

Good luck!

Wireless, someone stealing it


You should set up one of the wireless security methods supported by your router. By using WEP or WPA security, you can encrypt the communication between your computer and the router so no one else will have access to it. The users manual and setup software that came with your router should be able to guide you through this process.

Even after you set up the security features on your router, your computer will still be aware of other nearby networks...they will show up in your list of available networks...but outsiders will not be able to access your computer or router.

Good luck...and I hope this is helpful!
