This is available by accessing your router on a wired connection through you web browser (I.E. Firefox or whatever you use.).

Your user manual will tell you how to access it but it will be by entering a numeric address in the browser address bar such as 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 or similar.

Some routers have it on a label underneath them including the default password (normally but not always admin).

Under the security tab on the webpage that opens will be an opportunity to enter your own password to secure your network.

I am trying to configure my wireless router for wpa-personal wireless security


It is recommended to enable encryption on your wireless router before your wireless network adapters. Please establish wireless connectivity before enabling encryption. Your wireless signal may degrade when enabling encryption due to the added overhead. Before you start make sure your computer is directly connected to your router.

1- open a browser and on the address box type the following and press enter ---> http://192.168.0.1
2- on the next screen you will be asked for your routers username and password in order to login. If you have'nt change this information before you can use the following (click log in after)
Username : admin
Password: password
3- once you are in, on the left side menu click on
WIRELESS SETTINGS
4- on the next screen you will see below
WIRELESS SECURITY MODE:
Security Mode:-___________________
Next to Security Mode, select Enable WPA-Personal Security
5- a new menu appears below and asks for the following:
Next to Cipher Mode select--->Auto.
Next to Personal/Enterprise select---> Personal.
Next to Passphrase, enter a key (passphrase). The key is an
alpha-numeric password between 8 and 63 characters long. The password can include symbols (!?*&_) and spaces. Make sure you enter this key exactly the same on all other wireless clients.
Enter the passphrase again next to Confirmed Passphrase.
6- Click Save Settings to save your settings. If you are configuring the router with a wireless adapter, you will lose connectivity until you enable WPA-PSK (or WPA2-PSK) on your adapter and enter the same passphrase as you did on the router.


If you have further questions please do not hesitate to ask me...Good Luck!!!
