    Are you looking to password protect the Administration Web Portal (so no one can change your settings) or are you looking to password protect the Wireless connection?

Hi,

If you can send me your exact model number (and version number) which is usually located on a sticker on the underside of the router i can offer some specific instructions for you.

In general, you can follow the basic steps below.

I would recomend using WPA2 or WPA secutity over WEP. (as this is a stronger type of wireless security)

- Open a web browser on the computer.
- In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1 (default router ip address, you may have changed this)
- Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit. (if you have already set up a password to login to the router then enter it here)
- Click on Security in the left-hand column under the Wireless heading.
- Use the drop-down menu and select "WPA/WPA2-Personal (PSK)".
- Select either WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, or WPA-PSK+WPA-PSK2 as your Authentication; doing this will set the Encryption Technique automatically.
- Enter a word or group of characters in the password (PSK) box. The Pre-Shared Key must be 8 to 63 characters in length. Note: The PSK (Pre-Shared Key) is case-sensitive ("A" is different than "a").
*NOTE* Unchecking the Obscure PSK box will allow you to see the security key that has been typed.
= Click the "Apply Changes" button to save the settings.

Any/all wireless computers that connect to this network will be required to have this Pre-Shared Key (password).

If you need assistance with how to re-configure your computers, then please provide the version of windows that you are using.

Basic steps are:

-Disable the current Wireless Connection
-Enable the Wireless Connection
-Search for available wireless networks (look for your SSID wireless network name)
-you will be prompted to enter in your PSK and then save your settings.

Good luck.
Matt

How to password protect Microsoft Office Excel 2003


Excel, a part of the Microsoft Office suit, offer password protect feature to prevent unauthorized users from viewing or modifying a *.xls (Microsoft Excel) file data, we can password protect MS Excel 2003 files so that only certain people can control the information.

Before Excel 2003 password protecting, here are a couple of notes:

1. Before password-protecting a workbook or worksheet, you have to consider writing down the password and keep it secure. That way, if you lose or forgot the Excel password, it will be easier to recover the information.
2. Excel has two types of password. One is "password to open" and the other one is "password to modify". You can password-protect the worksheet against modifications so that give some people read-only access to a workbook, or you can password-protect the workbook against opening an entire workbook of multiple worksheets.
3. Microsoft Excel supports several types of encryption settings, including Microsoft Base Cryptographic Provider V1.0, Microsoft DH Schnabel Cryptographic Provider, Microsoft Strong Cryptographic Provider, and more. However, password protecting an Excel file does not 100% guarantee that the password can not be decrypted or the password hacked. You can learn more about how to recover Excel password from SmartKey official site.

Now follow these steps to password-protect Excel 2003.

Step 1: Save your *.xls Excel file
Point to the File Menu, click save as and input the file name then the *.xls file is saved on your local disc. Point to "Tools" - "Options". When the "Options" multi-tabbed dialog box appears, click the "Security" tab.

Step 2: Choose the password protect type
  • If you don't wish other users to view your Excel workbook, enter a password in the "Password to open" box, and then click OK.

  • If you agree other users to view your Excel workbook but don't want them make changes to the workbook, type a password in the "Password to modify" box.

  • If you wish to use a different encryption settings type, click Advanced, choose an encryption setting type you want in the list, and then click OK. And you can also specify the number of characters in the Choose a key length box.

I need to get my password from my belkin54 router to use for my phone internet


Hi Berry,
 
On the back of your router there is a reset button, press and hold that when power on, until all the lights are blinking simultaneously (about 30 sec).
Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router. DO NOT use a wireless connection, use a cable.
Open your web browser and type the IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter.
Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, clickSubmit.
Click Security under Wireless menu.
Under Security, Select 64 bit WEP (or 128 bit WEP).
Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength). You may also enter a pass phrase and have the router generate a key for you. Example (0102030405060708090a0b0c)
Apply the settings. Please write down the key – You will need it later to configure your wireless computers with the same key.
Remember to set an admin password before you close down, other vice anyone can access you router and change the setup and admin password.

No access for other laptops on my wireless router


You need to access the router's setup page using a computer that has Internet connection through the router. To do that, launch IE from that computer and type 192.168.2.1. It will then asks for a username/password. Try leaving the username and password blank. If that doesn't work, try admin for username and leave the password blank.

It will then open your router's setup page. Just click on wireless tab on the left panel and then click security. There you can set security mode to disable.

Hope this helps!
