Tip

Generic instruction on how to connect your WiFi Router to the Internet


Yes, try this, Using the network cable that came with your wireless router, you should temporarily connect your computer to one of the open network ports on your wireless router (any port that isn't labeled Internet, WAN, or WLAN). If you need to, turn your computer on. It should automatically connect to your router.Next, open Internet Explorer and type in the address to configure your router. You might be prompted for a password. The address and password you use will vary depending on what type of router you have, so refer to the instructions included with your router. As a quick reference, this table shows the default addresses, usernames, and passwords for some common router manufactures. Table is, Router Address, User Password. 3Com http://192.168.1.1 admin adminD-Link http://192.168.0.1 admin Linksys http://192.168.1.1 admin adminMicrosoft http://192.168.2.1 admin adminNetgear http://192.168.0.1 admin password
Internet Explorer will show your router's configuration page. Most of the default settings should be fine, but you should configure three things: 1. Your wireless network name, known as the SSID. This name identifies your network. You should choose something unique that none of your neighbors will be using. 2. Wireless encryption (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), which help protect your wireless network. For most routers, you will provide a passphrase that your router uses to generate several keys. Make sure your passphrase is unique and long (you don't need to memorize it). 3. Your administrative password, which controls your wireless network. Just like any other password, it should not be a word that you can find in the dictionary, and it should be a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. Be sure you can remember this password, because you'll need it if you ever have to change your router's settings. The exact steps you follow to configure these settings will vary depending on the type of router you have. After each configuration setting, be sure to click Save Settings, Apply, or OK to save your changes. Now, you should disconnect the network cable from your computer.

I want to insert a password in internet connection Braggion Giorgio


You should connect to router configuration page using your web browser. Normlly the adress you should type is 192.168.0.1. If is the first time you install it or it has factory defaults you will be asked a username and a password. Type admin as username and leave the password field blank.
Now you are in router configuration page. From here you can choose a password to protect your wireless lan and a password to protect router access.
