Question about Computers & Internet
Wusb54g is linksys wireless adapter that connects to a wireless router. Are you using a linksys router? If yes, open a browser, type in the router's ip (ex. default ip is 192.168.1.1 note: don't put www or http just the numbers - if you wan't to check the default gateway go to the command prompt type in ipconfig and look for the default gateway). it willl ask for a username and password, leave username blank and the default password is admin (note: it's case sensitive - all lower case). Once you're in the router's user interface, click on the wireless tab. First tab is basic wireless settings, just change the ssid or the network name to any name you want then svae the settings. Then click on wireless security tab(one of the sub tabs under wireless). If you select wep just use 64 bit encryption then just type any key word under passphrase then click generate, write down the code under key 1, that's your security key. or if you're going to select wpa for you're security you can type in alphanumeric code (atleast 8 characters, just make it all lower case, no space, no special characters) then save it. That's how you secure your network using a linksys router.

U don't need a password. U need to set U'r router to a secure mode, not open ended. use WEP or other (64 bit or 128 bit) encryption. linksys allows U to select a paraphrase, example: "Love2Air" and it will generate a code, i.e. "7D23C678867". This will allow others to see that there is a wireless system, but they have to have the code to use it. U will have to have the code in your other wireless pc's in order to use the system. U can also tell the router what MAC address' (pc address') to allow or disallow to use the system.
A password is used to keep others out of U'r routers setup and changing U'r code or paraphrase. If U'r system gets highjacked, there is a reset on the router and everything will revert to the book defaults. Don't loose the book.
