On the security enabled network you need the pass phrase associated with the secured network and its configuration(WEP, WAP, ect...). If you are authorized to use this account contact the system administrator and he/she will give you pass phrase and configuration info needed to configure your network connection. If you are not authorized to be on that system and the are using WEP there is a program called net stumbler that captures several thousand packets and analyzes them using an ingenious algorithym and discerns the passphrase needed to gain access to the protected network in a couple of minutes. Net stumbler is also a great tool for the hobby war driving. This is a game where people drive around looking for internet hotspots and logging there location and getting in. It's more of a status thing than a criminal thing. It is illegal to access soomeone's network even if it is left open with no protection, believe it or not. I just read a story about a kid in England getting arrested sitting on a public bench accessing a womans wireless service from her flat accross the street. An officer aproached him and noticed he was online. Even thought the woman had left her wireless router wide open the kid was charged with theft of service. You have to be careful because networks log all connections and personally identifyable information about all computers that log onto a network. I hope you found this informative. Please take the time to rate it for me.

Log in to the router, check Wireless settings, Security is in the same area. I find that WPA-PSK[TKIP] is the easiest type to use, as you can use pretty much any sort of password longer than 7 characters. This can be done with the wired connection.

Why does my wireless internet only work when the network is not locked? does this mean my internet is not secure?


By not "locked" I assume you mean with security enabled. All clients connecting to your wireless access device must use the same credentials for security as your access device. Otherwise your clients will pick up and connect to any network that is unsecure.
