Securing a wireless connection

Hi,

having recently moved, my wireless router - conected to virgin media - automatically picked up its own internet connection under the title of the Belkin router itself. I cannot secure this connection and cannot access the Belkin site at 192.168.2.1. to encrypt it.

So basically, wireless connection working, but unable to secure it.

Please help!!

To add to previous comments, when connected to the router (hardwired connection), go to your start menu, run, and the type in 'cmd' (no quotes). This will open a command window. In the window type 'ipconfig'. This will give you your ip address, as well as the gateway. The gateway is the address of the router. By typing this address into your browser, you should be able to access the router configuration menus (might have password if you had previously set 1, or the default (you can check with the manuf website to learn the default). Then it's just a matter of setting either your wep key, or setting wpa or any other means of security you want to implement.

Plug directly into the wireless access point using a network cable and then navigate to the default IP address for configuration. Don't try to access it wirelessly.

To secure your wireless connection, do you mean by
1. Encryption using WEP or WAP
2. MAC address filtering on your wireless card
3. Disabling SSID broadcast.
If so you need to configure your wireless settings using Internet Explorer, the URL would be http://192.168.2.1 (check the config. TCP/IP address in your manual)

I have an edimax BR6204wg wireless router. Whenever I have tried connecting wireless divices such as PS3, Nintendo DS and now my HTC smartphone they all find the Wireless network (SSID) but have trouble...


Hi sj_harley,

Welcome to Fixya. You can check the settings of the router so that we can configure your device wirelessly. There are some important information that we need to obtain inside the router that we wil be using to connect your device. The SSID or Network Name, Security: WPA,WEP,WPA2 and Open and lastly the Network Key or Passphrase.

Lets access the router:

- To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.2.1, the Default username is admin and the password is 1234.

- Go to the Wireless, Make sure that the Wireless Module Function is Enable.

- ESSID is your Network Name (you can personalize it).

- Go to Advanced Settings, Authenticantion Type: Open (Unsecured) Shared (Secured).

- Go to Security, Select WEP or WPA then type your Password or Network Key

- Click on Apply to save the settings.

Now that we have the information needed lest configure your devices. Listed below is the guide on how to connect PS3 and DS wirelessly.

Ps3 Guide:

Steps on Connecting PS3

1. Power-cycle ALL network equipment. Turn off (unplug) ALL of your network equipment, including any Wireless Access Points, Routers, Voice Over IP (VOIP) Modems, and Broadband Modems for two (2) full minutes.

2. Confirm that your internet connection is enabled. in the home menu, go to Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection and select Enabled.

3. Scroll down to Internet Connection Settings and When prompted, "Do you want to continue?" select Yes. On the next screen, select Wireless as your connection method. Pick "Scan"

4. From the list, pick your SSID.

5.On the next screen, press right on the directional pad to continue

6. Pick your WLAN Security Setting (either WEP or WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK). If none, pick None (and skip the next step).

7. If you selected a Security Setting, enter your Security Key or Network Key with the keyboard. Press the Start button to exit the onscreen keyboard. Press right on the directional pad to proceed to the next screen.

8. The system will check your network configuration settings and display the information. Save the Settings.

9. Test the connection on the next screen.

10. When the test is complete (usually less than a minute), it will display the results ("Succeeded" or "Failed"). If you have successfully connected to your network, Congratulations, you have completed the network setup process.


DS Guide:

1. Go to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings of the Game

2. Search for an Access Point (SSID)

3. Select your Network (SSID), If you have an open network, just click "OK" and it should work just fine! If it's a Red Padlock, it'll prompt you for a Password or Network Key. This is the reson why we access the router.

4. Test the Connection


Thanks for using Fixya.

The router is not connected to the internet via Virgin media.

Your computer is connected only to the router wirelessly, that is why it says contact your internet supplier on how to connect the router successfully!

Connecting my dynamode 6004 W G1 wireless router to modem


Cable modems and routers must be turned on in a specific way. First, unplug both the router and modem. Next, plug the ethernet cable from the modem, into the cable router, and unplug the cable from the modem to the computer. Next, turn on the modem, and wait for all of the lights to stay static (usually there's 4 lights, the main one we're interested in, is the status light). Next, plug in and turn on your router. You should now be able to access the router and configure it for your internet connection.
