To secure your belkin wireless network you need to type http://192.168.2.1 into your internet explorer or click on the link in this message.
On the left menu click on security,
Down the box choose 64 bit WEP OR 128 bit WEP.
Select Automatically generate hex pairs using Pass Phrass by placing a tick.
Type in a Pass Phrass in the box and click Apply Changes.
It will open a new window with encription key.
Write it down and keep it a good place.
Close your browser and you are done.
Click on your network icon to search for wireless, when found your network SSID, double click to connect and a pop up window will ask for the encription key.
Type in the key and confirm it and that's all the game.
Hope that help.

When Click Encryption in the Security window the encryption password window does not open and the encripted folder is opened without password


What make and model is your router?
You usually have to select an encryption type, such as WEP or WPA before the password widow opens.

I set the router from wap security to wep and i cant connect to it now.


The WEP encryption key is in the router's wireless settings and changing this encryption will affect your wireless connection.
You must also configure the computer's wireless card settings with this WEP encryption otherwise the wireless router will not allow the computer to connect to the wireless router.
I suggest you use WPA or WPA2 encryption, this is a later and stronger encryption method than WEP encryption.

I need my wep key


The WEP encryption key (network key) is in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the computer or laptop to connect to this wireless router.
I recommend you use WPA or WPA2 encryption, it is much stronger than WEP.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer or laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

Can't seem to change security level


You have a d-link 625 range booster? if i am not mistaken the most secured level encryption is WPA2.. MOST apple ipod touch does not support WPA2 encryption, most only support WPA encryption.. try setting your security level to Medium or lower your encryption to WPA.  If it still does not work, try the Lowest Encryption.
if this does not help, try using WEP
