Question about 2wire HomePortal 1000HW DSL Modem and Network Router -1000-400210-000_LN_R (1000400210000LNR)
You could use the CD supplyed with the router but i prefer using the web interface
DO THE FOLLOWING USING A CABLE NOT WITH WIRELESS CONNECTION
Open Explorer/Firefox then enter the IP address of the router in the URL bar (if unknown and the router is your DHCP server, use IPCONFIG command in a terminal window to find out)
after loging in (user+password) if unknown try default credentials
goto *wireless setup* and the basic things you need to do is entering an SSID (the name windows wil find in wireless connection), try to put something that wont give away your identity or location (a good choice is a word in some other language that you remember)
second is the enchryption level (the worse one is WEP 64 bit), the best is WPA2, WEP uses HEXADECIMAL charactors from 0 to 9 and A to F not hard to snif with good hacking tools, WPA2 uses phrases, for the best security in WPA2 again i recommend a long word you INVENT (not from a dictionnary) ownly you can remember, than if you want bullet proofing you could enable the option to hide the SSID and use MAC filtering so ownly the computers with the MAC address you entered will be able to connect
Hope it help ya
