Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
If you're using WPA or WPA2, the password will be a key, so to make it a word or phrase, switch to WEP (which isn't as secure). You can do this by going to the Wireless Security section, under the Wireless tab, and choosing WEP for the Security Mode, then input the word or phrase you want to use. (You'll also have to update all of the devices that connect to this router so that they can still have access.)
