You need to be connected to the modem via Eathernet cable. The WPA can not be set up using the wireless.

Tip

How to Configure your Linksys router with wireless security


Launch your Internet Explorer, Netscape or your Mozilla.

On the Address, Search or URL, type: http://192.168.1.1, then hit Enter/Return. A login screen will appear. Type admin for the password and leave the username blank or empty then hit “OK”.

Note: If it doesn’t take admin as the password you might have changed it when you have ran the RUN ME FIRST CD that came with the router so try other passwords.

If you cannot remember the password, I regret to tell you but, you have to reset the router and, reconfigure it again. Next time, remember the password to avoid unnecessary reset and reconfiguration.

To reset the router to factory default
1] Press and hold the reset button for 30 sec., after that
2] Unplug the power keep holding down the reset button for another 30 sec.
3] Then, plug back the power keep holding down the reset button for 30sec., after that
4] Release the reset button.

Note: Configuring WEP in the router varies depending on the model number and firmware version of your Linksys Router.

Cisco Interface (If your Setup page has a Cisco Logo)

Go to Wireless Tab > Wireless Security > Click the drop down arrow then select WEP:

Regular Linksys Router Interface (If your Setup page has a no Cisco Logo)

Under Setup > Click WEP Key Settings or Edit WEP Key Settings

Using passphrase 64bit
Encryption LEVEL 64bit > type a passphrase > click Generate > copy key1 on a piece of paper (10hex character). Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

For manual key entry of 64bit encryption:
Encryption LEVEL: 64bit > Under Key 1 type a 10 digit character from A-F and 0-9.
(e.g.: A0B3F58C9E, 0123456789, ABCDEFABCD). Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

Using passphrase 128bit
Encryption LEVEL128bit > type a passphrase > click Generate > copy key1 on a piece of paper (26hex character). Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

For manual key entry of 128bit encryption:

Encryption LEVEL: 128bit > Under Key 1 type a 26 digit character from A-F and 0-9.
(e.g.:0123456789ABCDEF9874561230, 012345678901234567890123456, ABCDEFABCDABCDEFABCDABCDEF).

Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

If you want better security for Vista computers, you may want to select WPA personal (WPA-PSK) under security > set the Algorithm to TKIP and type your personal security code (any code you want, any characters)

Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

Wanna know how to secure my belkin wireless G router.


Setting the router's administrator password

All Belkin Router's ship without an admin password. If you require an admin password then follow the below instructions.

Setup steps:

  1. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports on the router.
  2. Open a web browser on the computer.
  3. In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1
  4. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.

  5. Click on System Settings under Utilities on the left-hand side of the opened page.
    systemsettings.jpg
  6. You will see a feature called, "Administrator Password". Type in your current password (default leave blank).
    .adminpwd.jpg
  7. Click "Apply Changes". Your new password is now active.

Note: Do not forget the new password and keep it somewhere safe. If you forget your password, you'll be unable to access your router's settings. If you forget or lose your password, you'll need to "Perform a hardware reset on the router". This will reset the password to its default, as well as erase any and all other settings you may have changed

Trying to apply network key


Hello,
You need your PC connected to the Router via cable, then open Internet Explorer.
In the Address bar type 192.160.100.1 and press enter, for login enter admin and for password enter motorola, now you should see a Motorola window with all the settings.

On the left side select Wireless, a different window will appear.

In the Security Mode field, select WPA and click Apply.
Skip the portion about WEP and go below.

Under WPA CONFIGURATION, for WPA Encryption choose TKIP and for WPA Authentication choose Local (WPA-PSK)

Under Local there is WPA Passphrase, here enter your desired password; try not to forget the password in the future or you have to repeat the steps above, also try to use a combination of letter and numbers.

Click on save changes and you have finish, now you can close explorer.

Please let me know if you need additional help.

How do i put a password on my wireless motorola router?


Use the Wireless > SECURITY — basic Page to encrypt your transmitted data. Choose one of:
If all of your wireless clients support WPA encryption, we recommend using WPA instead of WEP because WPA:
• Provides much stronger encryption and is more secure
• Provides authentication to ensure that authorized users only can log in to your WLAN
• Is much easier to configure
• Uses a standard algorithm on all compliant products to generate a key from a textual passphrase
• Will be incorporated into the new IEEE 802.11i wireless networking standard
For new wireless LANs, we recommend purchasing client adapters that support WPA, such as the Motorola
Wireless Notebook Adapter WN825G, Wireless PCI Adapter WPCI810G, and Wireless USB Adapter WU830G.
For more information about the benefits of WPA, see the Wi-Fi Protected Access Web page:
http://www.wifialliance.org/OpenSection/protected_access.asp.
Configure on the SBG900 Required On Each Wireless Client
If all of your wireless clients support Wi-Fi
Protected Access (WPA), we recommend
Configuring WPA on the SBG900
If you use a local pre-shared key (WPA-PSK) passphrase, you
must configure the identical passphrase to the SBG900 on each
wireless client. Home and small-office settings typically use a
local passphrase.
Configuring a RADIUS server requires specialized knowledge
that is beyond the scope of this guide. For more information,
contact your network administrator.
Otherwise, perform Configuring WEP on the
SBG900
You must configure the identical WEP key to the SBG900 on each
wireless client.

How do I make a secure wireless network


If you don't have the manual, you can download it here.

Look at the chapter "Setting Up Your Wireless LAN" (page 64).

Then follow the guide for "Configuring WPA on the SBG900" (page 66).
Try to avoid WEP, since it is easily hackable and only gives the sense of false security. As encryption, choose WPA AES, because it is more secure than TKIP. WPA Authentication should be "local", since you don't want to run a dedicated server.

Some older laptops cannot deal with WPA-AES. In that case you have to fall back to WEP, but try WPA first.

Furthermore you should change the ESSID from "Motorola" to something more specific for you, so other clients don't connect accidentally to your network (page 71).

If you want to enable MAC filtering is up to you and only makes sense if you never have friends or colleagues coming over with a laptop. I would leave it off and enable it at a later point, after you see that everything is running fine.

Don't forget to set up your computers as well! You have to provide the passphrase for them, otherwise they can't connect (see page 75). The way I do it is to create a strong (!) passphrase like "V0y6Mmb90y...", copy it into a text document (use notepad), and save it on a USB stick. form there you can copy it to the field, when Windows (or Mac) asks for the network key.
No typos = no headaches.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

I have a Surfboard SBG900 router and cannot connect to VPN


The issue you have is not due to enabling WPA. It is due to enabling Firewall protection. Either turnoff firewall or use custom option to enable required ports.
