Follow the steps below:

  1. Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router.
  2. Open your web browser and type the router IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter.
  3. Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, click Submit.
  4. Click Security under Wireless menu.
  5. Under Security, you can select 64 bit WEP (or 128 bit WEP) or WPA/WPA2-personal (PSK). Note: make sure that your wireless computers will be able to support WPA encryption since not all wireless cards/adapters will be able to. if you're not sure, WEP is the encryption to use
Configuring WEP Encryption:

  1. 1. 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.
  2. 2. Apply the settings. Please write down the key – You will need it later to configure your wireless computers with the same key.
Configuring WPA-PSK Encryption:

  1. Select WPA2-PSK as your Authentication
  2. Select AES as the Encryption Technique.
  3. 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")
  4. Click Apply changes to save the settings.
once you have enabled your wireless security, you need to reconnect your wireless computer to the wireless signal using your wireless password/network key.

hope this'll help you and just ask me if you'll have other concern
ciao!

Password setting should be a part of initial setup, like other routers do.

I have linksys wrt54g2 and want to put a password on it and dont know how


You need to set WAP or WPA2 encryption to prevent public access.

To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

How can i hack into a wifi internet (DSL) ,Is any program or master password for it ?


If you are trying to access your neighbour's protected wireless network to get into his Internet connection There is no master encryption password.
To get your neighbour's Internet you need to ask for your neighbour's permission and if granted he will give you this encryption password.

Keep losing my wireless connections...


CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.

Securing my wireless network DIR615


the password you entered should prevent people from using yor network unless they have the password. Your network will still show on other peoples settings when they check for networks to connect to, but now you have added a password for your router it should say secured next to it when they try to use your network it will ask them for the password - pin - etc... and if they do not have it then they should not be able to access your router. Why not try to see if one of your neighbours can still access it now you have protected it with a password.
