How can I change my wireless password


First you have to access the router through web browser (Internet Explorer) by typing the IP address of your router in the address bar, which is usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 (written at the back of router and lookup for the options to do the following: -
1. Change the SSID (Name) of the router
2. Change the default administrative user name and password (unless you've configured otherwise, the default username is admin and the password password.)
(The above step would prevent unauthorized access to your router)

Next step is to secure it:
1. Look out for "Wireless Settings" and select your desired encryption method (preferably WPA2-PSK)
3.Choose a Network Key - it can be anything, as long as it's 8-63 characters in length
4. Click Apply

Now your router and your connection would become secure and the user has to provide the network key to access the internet.

Where do i enter password to get wifi on my blackberry off home router?


Hi,


Welcome to Fixya. To connect you Blackberry to the Belkin router wirelessly you first need to know the SSID or Network Name and the Network Key or Password

- To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.2.1, the Default password is blank.

- Click on Encryption, You will see there the Network Key or Passphrase. You can personalize the Network Key then confirm the changes try your Blackberry to connect.

- Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the personalize network key. Network key serves as a password on the network so that no one can access the internet unless they know the password.


Thanks for using Fixya.

Problem with downloading router driver/firmware


You don't need software for the router. Is your wireless encrypted or open? Just view avaiable networks with your xp machine and choose your network to connect to. If you do have an encrypted signal use the vista machine and type in the ip address to the router in your browser window. I think belkins router ip is 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.0.1 Hope this helps, let me know

How to make it a secure network


Malicious users can easily capture information transmitted over an open wireless network. To prevent unauthorized access to your personal information it needs to be encrypted.

To secure your wireless network some kind of encryption must be enabled on that network, whether it is WEP, WPA-PSK (or MAC Access Control List). The most used method (and easiest to configure) is WEP.

Configuring WEP:
  1. Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router.
  2. Open your web browser and type the router IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter.
  3. Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, click Submit.
  4. Click Security under Wireless menu.
  5. Under Security, Select 64 bit WEP (or 128 bit WEP).
  6. Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength). You may also enter a pass phrase and have the router generate a key for you.
  7. Apply the settings. Please write down the key – You will need it later to configure your wireless computers with the same key.
Any other questions, let me know.

Cheers,
Nick

How do I optimize my Toshiba 802.11b Wireless LAN settings? I have a Tashiba Satellite A205-S5819 PSAF3U-0QV00V.


Hey Joshua2414,

If you are referring to optimizing your security settings, there are a couple of things that you can generally try: ensure that your wireless network is WEP or WPA/WPA2-encrypted, enable MAC filters on your router, and set the router's broadcasting channel to one that is not heavily used in your area.

Wireless network encryption like Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA/WPA2) keys prevent any unauthorized user from accessing your wireless internet connection, in addition to preventing others from reading information sent between your router and computer. These keys are typically generated by your router, and must be manually entered into your laptop to grant it access to your home network. In most instances, you can enable these protections by accessing your router's control panel through its default website. Many routers or residential gateways will use one of the following addresses, but please keep in mind that it may vary from router to router:

192.168.0.1
or
192.168.1.1

You may be prompted for a user name and password before being able to proceed, and both are normally provided in your owner's manual documentation for the router. They may also be provided to you by your internet service provider (ISP) if you've elected to rent the networking equipment instead of purchasing it on your own.

Once you've gotten access to your router's control panel, you should be able to enable either of these encryption types by selecting the "Wireless Security" option from the main menu. Remember to write down or copy the passkey generated, because it will need to be entered into your laptop's wireless network settings exactly as it is presented through the router's control panel.

Media Access Control (MAC) filters can also be accessed from this same control panel. MAC filters are essentially "blacklists" and "whitelists" that restrict what hardware is able to access your network. Every wireless networking device will have a unique MAC address (or identification tag), which can be entered into these filters to either permit or deny them access to the internet.

Sometimes locating a device's MAC address can prove to be a challenge, especially if you are not familiar with how to set up your home network. For most versions of Windows, your MAC address can be found through the DOS prompt and may be referred to as your computer's "Physical Address." Please keep in mind however, that for every networking device connected to your computer you will have a different MAC address.

Additionally, you can use this same panel to change the channel on which your router broadcasts. In neighborhoods that have a high concentration of wireless networks, you can encounter sluggish performance online and difficulty connecting to your own network due to the number of signals available. This can typically be resolved by changing your router to a channel with minimal use in your area, but you may also need to make this change on your computer to adjust to any new network settings.

If you are still unsure how to proceed or have any doubts, I would strongly suggest contacting your local computer repair technician or ISP for further assistance. Remember that you can even obtain support through Geek Squad® agents, but you may be charged for any services you seek through your local Best Buy™ store.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Encryption on/off


First you must choose a common encryption strategy for your home network. (Yes I am assuming Home Network)

In most consumer routers you activate encryption on the wireless services of the router. After doing so you must also actiate encryption services on the wireless adapters that communicate with the wireless router. The names of the encryption services in the wireless router and wireless adapter are WPA and WEP. It is important to assure all wireless adapters to connect to the wireless router can handle the encryption chosen because the router will only perform one. There are options within each technique such as the number of bits of the keys -- the longer the better but only as long as the shortest device can support. WPA is preferable to WEP because it was designed to correct weaknesses in the WEP standard and implementation. However if there is even a single device to be connected that cannot do WPA you must do WEP or replace the device WPA in home systems often have a couple of other attribute being WPA-PSK and algorithm of TKIP -- which again every wireless adapter and the wireless router/access point must support.

To procede further in a sane manner you need to identify all wireless devices that will participate in your wireless network and determine their capablities for encryption. This is generally done searching manufacturer websites under support looking for user guides and firmware updates. Sometimes a devices capabilities in the manual require firmware updates to be true for the device. Once that is figured out the standards for your network can be set and the actual implementation can proceed. You will probably want a working wired computer to maintain access to the outside world for assistance if anything goes wrong. You also want to track your changes and know how to back things out incase things become too difficult.

If you have any additional questions or would like to a review of your plan or assistance determining a plan gather up the appropriate manufacturer's names and models and I will assist as time permits.

I hope this helps.
