Hello!

there are so many way you can secure your wireless network.

CHANGE THE SSID AND CHANNEL

1: Open the router page 192.168.1.1 >> type this in the internet explorer address bar.
2: Click Wireless from the left menu
3: The settings to Wireless section of Router appear.Click Channel and SSID.
4: Change the Wireless Network Name (SSID) To identify your wireless network. To change the SSID, type in the SSID that you want to use in the SSID field and click Apply Changes.
5: Change the Wireless Channel to 1, 6 or 11. If there are other wireless networks operating in your area, your network should be set to operate on a channel that is different than the other wireless networks. Select channel from Wireless Channel drop-down menu. Click Apply Changes.

CHANGE THE WIRELESS MODE

Using the Wireless Mode Switch. This switch allows you to set the Router’s wireless modes. There are several modes. Note: Some modes may require firmware updates to be enabled. Select wireless mode from Wireless Mode drop-down menu. Click Apply Changes.

a) 802.11g only - this mode will allow only 802.11g-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out any slower 802.11b devices.

b) 802.11g & 802.11b - this mode will let 802.11g- and 802.11b-compliant devices to join the network.

c) 802.11n & 802.11g - this mode will allow N1/draft 802.11n- and 802.11g-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out any slower 802.11b devices.

d) 802.11n only - this mode will allow only N1/draft 802.11n-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out 802.11g and 802.11b devices.

e) Off - This mode will turn OFF the Router’s access point, so no wireless devices can join the network. Turning off the wireless function of your Router is a great way to secure your network when you are away from home for a long period of time, or don’t want to use the wireless feature of the Router at a certain time.

DISABLE SSID BROADCAST

This advanced feature will not broadcast your network’s SSID. Doing so will keep your network name hidden from computers that are scanning for the presence of wireless networks. To turn off the broadcast of the SSID, remove the check mark from the box next to Broadcast SSID, and then click Apply Changes.

ENABLE WIRELESS SECURITY
To access the security settings, click Security.

Setting WPA Security

Note: To use WPA security, your wireless network cards must be equipped with software that supports WPA. WPA-PSK uses what is known as a pre-shared key as the security key. A pre-shared key is basically a password that is between eight and 39 characters long. It can be a combination of letters, numbers, or characters.

a) From the Security Mode drop-down menu, select WPA-PSK (no server).
b) For Encryption Technique, select TKIP or AES. This setting will have to be identical on the clients that you set up.
c) Enter your pre-shared key. This can be from eight to 39 characters and can be letters, numbers, or symbols. This same key must be used on all of the clients that you set up.
d) Click Apply Changes to finish. You must now set all clients to match these settings.

ENABLE WIRELESS MAC ADDRESS FILTERING

The MAC address filter is a powerful security feature that allows you to specify which computers are allowed on the wireless network. This list applies only to wireless computers. This list can be configured so any computer attempting to access the wireless network that is not specified in the filter list will be denied access. When you enable this feature, you must enter the MAC address of each client (computer) to which you want to allow network access. The Block feature lets you turn on and off access to the network easily for any computer without having to add and remove the computer’s MAC address from the list.

Setting up an Allow Access List

1. Click MAC Access Control.

2. Select the Allow radio button to begin setting up a list of computers allowed to connect to the wireless network.

3. Next, in the MAC Address field that is blank, type in the MAC address of the wireless computer you want to be able to access the wireless network, then click Add.

4. Continue to do this until all of the computers you want to add have been entered.

Wireless feature of the router works all the time. If it doesn't work, the router is defective. I believe you just need to configure the wireless settings of the router manually. The router has a setup page where you can change a lot of wireless settings to synchronize to your wireless computers. You can open it through http://192.168.2.1 using your Internet Explorer. Try to customize the channel to 11, change the Network Name and enable wireless security as well.

you can run wires to create a WIRED network. just enable DHCP in your router so that you will get IP addresses dynamically. While you have WIRED network, your wireless network can also be used at the same time for your wireless devices.

Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4)


hello!

normally, if you configure the wireless security settings wirelessly, it will automatically disconnect you from the network. you have to input the security key on the laptop first before it connects you back to the network.

i suggest, if you really like to configure the settings of your router, get an ethernet cable, connect it directly to the laptop so you can access and configure the router settings and to avoid from being disconnected
