You need to log into your routers programming and set a WEP key... Or rename the SSID to something like your last name and tell it NOT to broadcast. Whenever your done write all the information down in a safe place. Then you'll need to re-run the wireless network setup wizard on PC's and tell it what the new SSID is and if you used a WEP key you'll need to tell it that too.

Whats the exact brand/model # for your router?

How does one lock the wbr 2310 dlink so no one can use our signal?


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to make your connection secure by using a password you need to access the router settings page and change the security type. Follow the instruction below on how to make the connection secure.

If you want to setup a password or security on your router you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. 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 192.168.0.1, the Default username is admin and the password is blank. Go to Wireless Settings and under Wireless Security Mode select either WEP, WPA, WPA2 then create a personalize Passphrase. Passphrase serves as the password on the network to make it secure.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I have lost the installation cd to my linksys router and I need software to change the wep password. I cant seem to remember what I have set it to before.


You can know your password without disk too. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or 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. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. . Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Router password is the password to access the router settings.
SSID is the network name. When you try to connect to the wireless network on your laptop, you will see this network name.
If your network is secured network then it will ask you for the network key or the password. You need to enter the ' security key '.

I put a password on my linksys router and cant seem to get internet access to my other computer laptops and ipods even if we put password what am i doing wrong


You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
If your network is secured then make sure that you are typing the correct network key.
also make sure that the DHCP server is enabled on the router.
is there any computer connected to the router ?
what is the operating system on the computer ?
WPA2 security type will not work with windows XP.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.
