Setting up wireless security(WEP) on a Speedstream 2326 Wireless ADSL Router

-Open your browser and enter the IP address of your Speedstream 2623 router(by default its 192.168.254.2534)
-On the login screen, enter "admin" in the password box rgeb click login and you'll be brought to the management interface of your router.
-Go to Simple Setup and look for wireless encryption, select "manually."
-You can either enter a passphrase so that the router will generate a random WEP key or you can select #1 and key in your personal 10 digit WEP key(note; it will only accept hexadecimal character 0-9 and letters A to F).

Important Reminder: If you will set up encryption on a wireless computer, the connection will be lost and you need to re-associate to the routter and it will prompt you to enter the encryption that you have configured earlier(it will be beneficial if you will print the settings of your router for reference) that's why it is recommnended that you use a computer wired to the router when changing the settings.

Why are both the Wireless and WPS lights on my modem\router always on solid green, when I only have a DSL connection?


The wireless and WPS lights solid green mean that the wifi and WPS are active. It also means that your home network is exposed to anyone with a laptop/pad/smart phone who knows how to hack into systems that have not been set up properly with the proper security.
I see the following security issues with your router:
1. The router's password is still the default or it does not have one.
(This means anyone who knows your router maker and model can easily break into your network and systems and steal your info, the router maker is broadcast by your wifi SSID, so they know it)
2. WPS is enabled and active (WifiProtectedSetup)(this service is a major security hole that is used by hackers to gain access to routers, it must be disabled for protection)
3. The wireless (wifi) connections are open (not encrypted), anyone can intercept the wireless traffic and read it. WPA2/AES encryption needs to be configured for the best protection.
4. The router's built in firewall may not be configured correctly exposing you to drive-by hacking.
To resolve these issues requires someone who understands router security and is best done onsite.
You need to engage someone you trust to check and configure your router and computer systems properly to protect yourself.

I have an N900 router that I want to secure from outside the home use


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Wifi password reset


Once you log into your router click on the wireless link.
On the bottom of the wireless page click security.
Here you can change your wifi security.
Once done just click apply and the that's it.

Note: Once you change the wifi security settings you will have to reconfigure your wireless devices with the new wifi security.

I have windovs7 and router DSL-G604T wireless I dont know make my pc secure from other people


Hello, To protect your PC from wireless access:

1. Go to router's web interface
2. In Setup tab press Wireless button
3. Select WPA as security, this is important because WEP is easy to hack
4. Input some long enough string as PSK string. Remember it that will be you password for access during wireless card setup in your PC
5. Go to Tools and press Save All/than Restart

I am also recommend to install Router Commander program that was developed especially for this router and prevents router from hangs, connection lost and you can see who accessed your network and block access for strangers

How do i password protect my wireless network?


You want to secure the wireless network.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router with the cable.
Check the IP address on the computer. Open the router set up page.
Once you open the set up page, you will find the option to make it secured

Constantly locks up and loses connection under moderate traffic(3 users max) never recovers only solution available is to reset


There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arid welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply)
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

Laptop wont connect to wireless belkin router


If you connect the laptop wired, does it work correctly?
If your Wireless router has password protection, try resetting it to factory defaults, and connect it that way.  If you can connect with the factory defaults (with no security), it's likely an issue with the security on your router.
I'd suggest starting again. Reset to factory defaults, re-secure the network and try a different SSID name this time, and try again.
