Securing a wireless network

Hi. We just got a new wireless router and it's all connected and we can access the internet from it, which is great, but we want to set up the network so we can secure it. The wizard says to plug in a usb into the router or input the data manually into the router, but there is no usb port on the router, and I can't see any other way to input the encryption into it. Our router is an ASUS AM 604g. Please help me to set up the network and secure it so that our data is safe and people can't steal our bandwidth. Thanks.

Cant connect to the internet..


Hi, What error do you get when connecting to the internet?
Anyways, Probably the Wireless connection your trying to connect to has a Network Security enabled on it.
Gaming consoles cant' access that type of Encryption, reason I do not know why but to be able to get wireless connection using your Nintendo DS you will need to disable the Wireless Network Security of your Wireless Router to be able to get Wireless Access using your Nintendo DS.
I also had issues with mine before and found out that disabling the Network Security will let me get Internet Access on my portable console.
Just Disable the Network Security this will allow you to get Internet Access on your Nintendo, for the Security of your Wireless you can get the MAC Address of each wireless device you have and input those MAC Addresses into the Router Settings to get Security and not allow other poeplt to gain access on your Wireless Internet.
I hope this Helps.
Have a nice day,

Hi im able to connect to te internet wireless with my computer but not on any other devise I need to get my security code, how can I do that?


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to connect to the Belkin Router Wirelessly and it is asking you for a Security Code, all you need to do is to access the router settings page and look for the Network Key or Passphrase.

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 192.168.2.1, the Default password is blank

Click on Security under Wireless and look for the Security Key or Network Key (Passphrase)

Thanks for using Fixya.

Follow these steps to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If a wireless profile does not exist, you will need to create a secure wireless profile before you can set up a wireless connection to the Internet.

1. Access the Network and Sharing Center.

2. Select Set up a connection or network.

3. Click Connect to the Internet.
