Just enable router security, go in to the web based user interface by typing http://192.168.0.1 A little box may pop up prompting you for a user name and password, if you havent set one of your own try user: admin and password: admin OR user: admin password:password. This opens your settings...
Next, hide your SSID, which isnt much protection against experienced hackers but for this instance should do just fine. Then Click the "Wireless Settings" link on the left side of
the page under "Basic Settings". Choose WPA-PSK under "Security Options". WEP is easily hackable DO NOT USE as encryption type unless your OS doesnt support it. I can hack WEP in ten minutes so be aware this is not really a secure option.
Enter an 8-63 character passphrase in the passphrase box and apply. If yopu only have a few home computers, you can al;ways filter by MAC address whcih basically prevents any compouter that hasnt had thier MAC entering into the router manually from connecting.

You need to enable WEP security on router.
Connect router to 1 computer with lan cable then you can access it with below default ip in internet explorer.
then you can see user and password screen type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password" or "1234" then go to wireless ->wireless security enable WEP and enter password save settings and restart router.
Then it ask for password to connect wireless.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.
You can reset everything by pressing the reset button found in a recess small hole next to the power connecter. Use a straighten paper clip or tooth pick in the hole and gently press the switch for about ten seconds. this will set everything to the default stage. Then you can access the router the normal way.
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router is there any computer connected to the router ? If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer. Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.
Type 192.168.1.1 into your browser and then enter user "admin" for both the username and password. Go to Wireless/Wireless Security and enable the setting so it is unsecure. Now your computer will see the signal and allow you to connect
The other computers could still have old settings from before....maybe try running ipconfig /renew on the ones that don't work and run ipconfig /flushdns then see if wireless can do a search for the newly named one.
Sometimes firewalls on your computers can cause connection issues. I had the same problem with my home network. I had norton internet security 2008 on both systems, but the firewall settings on both computers had to be adjusted to allow the computers to talk. If you have different brand firewalls on each computer, you should consider to switching one of the computers so that it matches the other.
Another thing you want to do is log into the router's web utility and check to see if the wireless settings are blocking wireless connections in some way. You also want to make sure the ssid broadcast is enabled.
Finally, you really should consider using security on your router, so wireless connections would be password protected. I suggest wpa personal.
