It requires username and password how can i change this to setup my router to secure


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. 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 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security on the Dropdown next to Security Mode select either WEP or WPA. Then Personalize your Network Key. The Network Key serves as a password on your network to make it secure. Then Save the settings

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

I need password to be able to lock my internet


You can find everything you need to know from here:

http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT54G

You basically setup your own security. If this is a pre-configured router and you do not know the access information, then you may need to reset the router back to factory and then configure it from scratch. While you are at it, download the latest firmware and update your router for best performance.

I want to secure my Belkin 'n' wireless router . I am running Windos XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Mac OS Snow Leopard. How can I do this?


connect any one of the computers to the router with a ethernet cable. open internet explorer, clear out the address bar on the top, and type 192.168.2.1. when u hit enter, u'll get a router set up utility. in this page u'll have an option -security- below "wireless". when u click security, it'll ask for a password, leave it blank and hit submit. on the next window, choose the option WPA/WP2, then u'll have some more options, look for PASSWORD(PSK).. put in a password which should be 8 to 63 characters long, its case sensitive. click on apply changes.

PURCHASED A SECOND LAPTOP TODAY AND THERE IS A SECURITY CODE(PASSWORD) REQUIRED TO ALLOW THIS COMPUTER ACCESS TO THE SYSTEM I HAVE ...HOW DO RETREIVE THIS OR SET UP NEW ..I HAVE A 108 MBPS WIRESLESS...


it sounds like you are trying to access a computer from another computer.

you need to:

1. configure a home network so both computers can see each other:
vista
xp
7
2. now you need to share folders
vista
xp
7

now if by ACCESS TO THE SYSTEM I HAVE you mean your network, you need to know what passcode or key code your router was set up with. if you didn't setup security for your password talk to the person that did and find out what the password is. if you can't reach this person you may need to reset your password to defaults which should automatically allow access to any computer your bring into your wireless network (not recommended without security) and then you should reconfigure security and make a note or remember the new password or keycode so you can configure the new and any other computer you want to allow to connect to your network.. this is how you can set to router back to defaults:

To restore the factory default configuration settings without knowing the administration password
or IP address, you must use the Default Reset button on the rear panel of the router.
1. Press and hold the Default Reset button until the Test LED turns on (about 5 seconds).
2. Release the Default Reset button and wait for the router to reboot.

for more info on how to reconfigure your router and security for it here's your router's manual

good luck

How do I make my connection secure to the internet? I have linksys wireless-G 2.4 GHz broadband router. The router is all hooked up but I believe the current connection is unsecured.


When you connected, did it ask you for a password? If not then it's obviously unsecured. Here's how to fix that... i have the same router.
On XP... open internet explorer... in the address bar, type in: 192.168.1.1

On vista.... click start menu...click on network...right click on router and select properties. Next, click on the "Network Device" tab at top of the new window. You will then see "Device Webpage"... click on the ip address to the right of that underlined in blue. It should ask you for a password... if you haven't set one manually the user is admin and the password is also admin. I recommend changing that to a manual password ASAP. Ok, after logging in, now you have the router's set up page in your web browser.
To make it secure:
On the set up page you now have open... you have a few selections that act like tabs: Setup, Wireless, Security, Access Restrictions, etc... Click on Wireless. After clicking on that, you have some tabs underneath wireless you can click on now.
Those selections should be: Basic wireless settings, Wireless security, Wireless MAC Filter, etc... Click on Wireless Security. There you should see disabled on the first drop down. Pick a WEP, WPA or whatever you prefer. I personnally use WEP with 64bit 10 hex and for the password, i use a 10 digit number.
After you have set up your password and security, click save settings at the bottom. After it's done processing the save, you can close the web browser. You are good to go now.
By the way, I recommended changing your password to access the router's set up page. Make absolutely sure you save that username/password in a safe location. If you forget it, there is nothing linksys can do to help you. I know from experience unfortunately.
Hope all this helped... Good Luck
