Hi Friend,

In order to resolve the issue, you may also follow the steps:

1.Connect the wire (which is coming out from the modem, i.e, the internet wire) into the WAN/Internet port of the router.
2.Connect your computer to any of the four LAN ports with a Ethernet cable(usually Blue/Yellow/Grey color wire)
3.Turn on the router
4.Type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of the Internet Explorer and hit Enter
5.Enter the username and password (default password is admin and leave the username blank)
6.Now click Wireless tab and fill the sections as mentioned:

Wireless Network Mode:Mixed
Wireless Network Name:As per your choice
Wireless Channel-6-2.437GHz
Wireless SSID-Enabled and click Save Settings

7.Now Click Wireless Security and fill the sections as mentioned

Security Mode-WEP
Default Key-1
WEP Encrypion-64 bits 10hex digits
Key1-Enter 10 digit password(e.g-your 10 digit telephone number) and click Save Settings

After completing all the above steps, turn off the Router for 30 seconds and turn it on after that. You can connect your wireless devices.

Right, it is quite simple really, simply open your browser, and login to the router, using login and password, once in the router select security, and generate a WAP/WEP "Key" (now copy paste this, huge 64 bit or 32 bit hex, to a note pad document and save it to the desktop, for later pasting into the WiFi Network itself.) Now once you have generated and set the password Key, save the configuration and reboot the router, and then, the PC, after the PC comes back up, Go to "Connect to a network" and select your SSID, (The name of your WiFi Router's connection), you will be asked for the WEP/WAP "Key" you can then copy.paste from that notepad document, into the password/Key "Field" and proceed, ensure you check, "Remember password".

How to secure my internet connection via smc router


If you plan to have a wireless network, you should set it up so that only people you choose can access it. Here are a few options for wireless network security.

Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
WEP is a widely used network security method. When you enable WEP, you set up a network security key. This key encrypts the information that one computer sends to another computer across your network. The receiving computer needs the key to decode the information so that it's difficult for someone on another computer to get onto your network and access files without your permission.

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA)
WPA was created to improve the security of WEP. Like WEP, WPA encrypts information, but it also checks to make sure that the network security key has not been modified. WPA also authenticates users to help ensure that only authorized people can access the network. If your networking hardware works with both WEP and WPA security, we recommend that you use WPA.

There are two types of WPA authentication: WPA and WPA2. WPA is designed to work with all wireless network adapters, but it might not work with older routers or access points. WPA2 is more secure than WPA, but it will not work with some older network adapters. WPA is designed to be used with an 802.1X authentication server, which distributes different keys to each user. This is referred to as WPA-Enterprise or WPA2-Enterprise. It can also be used in a pre-shared key (PSK) mode, where every user is given the same passphrase. This is referred to as WPA-Personal or WPA2-Personal.

802.1X authentication
802.1X authentication can help enhance security for 802.11 wireless networks and wired Ethernet networks. 802.1X uses an authentication server to validate users and provide network access. On wireless networks, 802.1X can work with Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) keys. This type of authentication is typically used when connecting to a workplace network.

IF THIS ALL DOSEN'T WORK TRY THE FOLLOWING:

Wireless network security recommendations
If you have a wireless network, there are some additional security precautions that you should take.

Use a network security key
If you have a wireless network, you should set up a network security key, which turns on encryption. With encryption, people can't connect to your network without the security key. Also, any information that is sent across your network is encrypted so that only computers that have the key to decrypt the information can read it. This can help avert attempts to access your network and files without your permission. Common wireless network encryption methods are Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) and WPA-2.

Change the default administrator name and password on your router or access point
If you have a router or access point, you probably used a default name and password to set up the equipment. Most manufacturers use the same default name and password for all of their equipment, which someone could use to access your router or access point without you knowing it. To avoid that risk, change the default administrator user name and password for your router. Check the information that came with your device for instructions about how to change the name and password.

Change the default SSID
Routers and access points use a wireless network name called a service set identifier (SSID). Most manufacturers use the same SSID for all of their routers and access points. We recommend that you change the default SSID to keep your wireless network from overlapping with other wireless networks that might be using the default SSID. It makes it easier for you to identify which wireless network is yours, if there is more than one nearby, because the SSID is typically shown in the list of available networks. Check the information that came with your device for instructions about how to change the default SSID.

Position your router or access point carefully
Wireless signals can transmit a few hundred feet, so the signal from your network could be broadcast outside of your home. You can help limit the area that your wireless signal reaches by positioning your router or access point close to the center of your home rather than near an outside wall or window.

Enable security on wireless network


You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code.
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
For belkin router http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1

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 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.
