  1. Connect your computer to the wireless router. Although you can access the router wirelessly, it is better to use an Ethernet cable to directly connect to your router so that you can securely adjust router settings. Plug the Ethernet cable into the appropriate Ethernet jack on your computer. Plug the other end of the cable into any one of the open Ethernet ports on the back of your wireless router.

  2. Open your computer's web browser(INTERNET EXPLORER). In the URL address field, enter the IP address for your wireless router(the DEFUALT GATEWAY). This information should be contained in your router's manual. If you cannot find it, enter "198.168.1.1" as the address. This is usually the default IP address for most routers.

  3. Enter the username and password for your router. This should also be supplied in the router's manual. If you don't have this information, go to routerpasswords.com and find the brand and model of your router. This site lists the default login information for most wireless routers.try ADMIN" for user name and "PASSWORD" for password

  4. You should now be able to see your wireless router settings. You can configure your network ports, as well as SSID (wireless network name) and passwords.(aka passphrase)

What is wep"? on wifi


the devices like laptops and tablets connect to the wi fi router through a number of connection types. Some are direct and some are secured. The secured connections require a code that is set up during the configuration of the wireless network router. One type of secure connection uses the WEP code. (wired equivalent privacy) . If your device is asking for a wep code then the router has been set up to ask for this code. You will need to find out what the code is. If you are not the owner of the router then you need to ask the owner. If you are the owner and have forgotten the password then you could factory reset the router and use the default setting. But this is risky as anyone can connect to the network around your place.

Informed WEP key is a 10 digit number. could 231408&sid nos. & characters be my WEP key?


A WEP key is a security code used on some Wi-Fi networks.A WEP key is a sequence of hexadecimal digits. These digits include the numbers 0-9 and the letters A-F.

The length of a WEP key depends on the type of WEP security (called "encryption") utilized:
  • 40- / 64-bit WEP: 10 digit key
  • 104- / 128-bit WEP: 26 digit key
  • 256-bit WEP: 58 digit key
WEP keys are chosen by a network administrator, it would have been provided by the Internet Service providers, Hence it can't be as what you stated.

Is the PIN on the bottom of the router the same as the WEP or WPA?


WEP or WPA are the types of wireless security. If your wireless network is secured then there will be a password on the network that is called as wireless network key or passphrase ( WEP or WPA key ). PIN number is different than WEP or WPA.
To check the wireless network key ( WEP / WPA) you will need to access the router settings page.
On that page , you will find all the settings of the router.

How do I secure my sbg900 from outside users


You need to set security to the router, even if you use wep, it is better then an non secured.


Its hard to explain all the details, please read your manual as this will walk you through the process, wep is easy and the more security you have the more detailed.

You can also set your router to only see your mac address, your mac address is the address of the wireless lan that is in your laptop or computer, each one has a specific number, and it is usually a 12 digit
number.

Every router is different in the security it has and some only have wep, so it depends on your router what security you can set.

If you don't have the manual just go to the website of your MFG and download it.

If you have more questions or help after reading it please post back.

How do I get a WEP security # to add a wifi picture frame??


The WEP number is a security code that is programmed into your wireless router through the web configuration page to prevent unauthorized access to your internet.

If this is your wireless network then you must have input the security code (its most probably 64bit meaning ten alpha-numeric digits).
