Locking the router can be done by setting a WEP key. Its a 10 digit alphanumeric key that you can set. Once you set it up, anyone who tries to access your router wirelessly will be prompted for that 10 digit key. Be sure to change your SSID (wireless network name) also so that you can distinguish your own secured wireless network from others.

SSID can be changed on the main setup page.

1. To access it, open Internet explorer while your computer is physically connected to the router.

2. Type http:\\192.168.1.1 (the default IP address of the router.) It will ask you for the username and password.

3. Enter the word "admin" for both username and password. It is the factory default username and password. On the main setup page, you will find the field for SSID or Network name.

4. Type your unique wireless network name and click the Save button on the bottom of the page.

5. On the router's web-based setup page, click the Wireless tab then click the Wireless Security sub-tab

6. Click the drop-down arrow for Security Mode and select WEP.

7. Under WEP Encryption select 64 bits 10 hex digits.

8. Enter a unique word in the Passphrase field, then click Generate.

9. The result will be a string of letters and numbers displayed in the space provided for Key 1.

NOTE: Take note of what is in Key 1. This key will serve as the wireless security password. Keep this key confidential.

10. Click the Save Settings button.


From now on, whenever anyone tries to access your wireless network, they need to enter Key 1 which you only know. There you go. Your wireless network is protected.
