It could mean that your WAP or WEP is off in your router, to turn it on you have to set a password key for the WAP/WEP. It could be set by accessing your router's configuration by typing your routers IP(usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) in your internet browser. You will be then prompted for the username and password, for the IP, username and password refer to your routers manual or buy using the CD that comes with the router.

Everything is working fine but my signal shows 'unsecured'. How do I 'secure' it so that others cannot log on to my signal?


Login to your wireless router usually 192.168.0.1,
enter you username and password if required usually admin and password
click on network management,
then Wlan,
select encryption (sometimes security) WPA,
WPA Cipher suite select TKIP
WPA Pre-Shared Key - type in key you want
Before you do the next step write down the changes you have made.
Once you click confirm you will not be able to login to the router over wifi without the wifi key
Select confirm or apply changes.
In you computer rescan for wireless networks and when your router shows up click on it and enter the wifi key.
Everything should work.

Considering How thick the walls are... the signal from your router may not be able to go through plus all the other EMI devices like Chordless phone etc.
Try Setting up the router in an open area suitable for a better signal for your laptop.

I just bought a usp adaptor i dont have a router but i wanna go wireless how do i pick up a signal?


Buy a wireless router to connect to.
Your USB adaptor is useless without one unless that is you can connect to someone else's unsecured network.

How to remove a network/signal?


Connect to the unsecure network, either directly with a cable, or connect via wifi. Once you are connected, open your web browser and go to:

http://192.168.2.1

There should be no password, just hit enter, then you can change the SSID and/or channel, etc.

I pulled the instructions from Belkin support:

New laptop using belkin n wireless router using McAfee security


An unsecure network just means that other people can "piggyback" on your wireless connection. It's not dangerous. In fact, I'm sitting in a place with my laptop right now, piggybacking on a signal.

The only possible downside is that if too many people ride on your signal for free, your connection could slow down. If you want help securing your router, I'll be glad to walk you through it.
