While it is impossible to be 100% secure on a wireless network, there are several things that will help. Use the wep encription, use mac filtering and add only the addresses you want to connect. Once you have everything set up, disable broadcasting the SSID, and lastly, change the user name and password on the router. Don't forget to enable the firewall on your laptop. Amother thing you can do is go around with your laptop and map the signal range so that you have an idea where the signal limits are.

Where can I find the security key for my Linksys Router? I have the password, but it isn't working to help me get my laptop on line.


Network security key
Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

If you need your Wireless security password/passkey.
Log on to your router
Go to wireless / security and your password/key should be there.
IF you are not sure how to log on to your router, just google your make and model and router setup.

Set up wireless router did not want security setting on worked great untill my nephew used his laptop and now he has it secured on his laptop so i can not access internet so how do i remove him so he does...


You need to log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) into the Address (or URL) line. The default usernameand password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved.
Let me know how you make out.

If it is your own router, unplug your router and press the reset button that is in back or your router while plugging it back in. That should reset the router and now it will be " open " to all.

Help connect to internet


Is there any other computer on line.
If laptop is the only computer then connect the laptop to the router with the cable and check if that works.
If you have other computer on line then you will need to check if your laptop is connected to the wireless network.
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
If your network is secured then make sure that you are typing the correct network key.
also make sure that the DHCP server is enabled on the router.
is there any computer connected to the router ?
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.
