To lock it, you need to password protect it.

On a computer connected to the linksys now.

Click the link below

192.168.1.1

On the page that comes up, it will ask for a username and password.

type in admin for the password, leave the username blank


You are inside the router..

Click on wireless, then right under it click on wireless security.

Where it says authentication, click it and change it to wpa2 psk

Where it says, PSK / Passphrase / Or Network key .. There is a text box to the right

In that text box is where You will have to type in a new password, and click apply / save settings.

Then.. The router will restart..

You have now set your wireless password.

Let me know how this worked out for you. If my solution helped you, please rate this solution!
It doesn't cost anything and only takes a second, but it is greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: my iphone 3gs cannot connect

A wireless client has to support WPS ( wi-fi protected service) function in order to use to add the client to your WPS enabled Wireless Router. check the iphone user manual of your wireless client to see whether it supports the WPS function. If your wireless client does not support the WPS function, you have to configure your wireless client manually so it has the same SSID and wireless security settings, you could also go into the advanced wireless settings and enable WPS ( push and connect ) if your router has this option this is sort of specifically for things like mobile/cellular phones and ipods...hope this helps please vote thanks

SOURCE: I cannot connect my kindle3 to Linksys wifi

Go to Menu. Go to Settings. Go to Wi-Fi settings. Instead of selecting one of the available networks chose Enter other Wi-Fi network. Enter the network (SSID) name. Make sure you pay close attention, it's case sensitive. Then instead of entering the password go to advanced; here you can choose the security type that your router uses. Then enter the password and connect.
That's u are connected

Tag was removed with pin number for my linksys mod wrt 160nv-2


You can find your WiFi security info by logging into the router

Out of the box your SSID should be Linksys

You will have to be connected with an Ethernet cable or use a computer that is already connected to your WiFi network.

1.Open a web browser and enter 192.168.1.1
2.You will get a login page for your router. Usually the login formation is as follows:
admin/admin
3.Once you have logged in you want to locate the wireless menu on the page.
4.Here you will find the pin for your wifi network

Can not connect ipad to router


If your Linksys wireless router is already setup with a wireless network, do the following to connect the ipad to the network:

Tap the Settings icon on the home screen of the iPad. Go to General, then Wifi. Once in the wifi section, you should see available wireless networks. Choose the network that is setup on the Linksys and connect to it. Enter the password if you have one set on the wireless network and tap join.

If your linksys is not setup with a wireless network, consult the manual for it to configure it properly.

I need to lock my linksys wireless router so no one can connect to my wifi?


Hi, this is what you need to do, you need to logon to your router with a browser, then go to security settings an generate a WAP/WEP "Key" Copy/Paste this key to a notepad document and save it. Then save the Routers settings and reboot the router, and the PC. When at desktop next. You will then attempt to logon to your WiFi network, this time however you will be asked for the "Key" open the notepad document and copy/paste, that number you stored, into the box provided, and NOW you WILL be able to access your WiFi. BUT no-one else will be able to without that "Key".
It is all explained in this manual I have included the link below.
It is under Security settings and it shows you step by step.
