If your router was connected to your computer at one time... This is a healthy starting point.
Be careful with this you can do lots of damage if you aren't exactly certain about what you are doing.

Step A. Type the following link into your browser

http://192.168.1.1/Wireless_Basic.asp

Step B. The active X on the system will ask you for the user name. type: admin (small characters)
Step C. The active X also prompts for a password. type: admin (same as above using small character sets)

Upon successful completion, you will be in your advanced settings menu.
You will see several tabs on this GUI.

Step D. Select the wireless tab and its' sub-tab "wireless security"

These are your security settings. Set them as you choose and save the changes.

BE CAUTIONED: This menu by itself can be dangerous... THERE EXISTS THE STRONG POSSIBILITY FOR DAMAGE, IF YOU CHANGE OTHER SETTING IN DIFFERENT MENUS!

I hope that helps. :)

The other way is to remove the drivers off of the system. Pull the secondaries out of the register. And then re-install the device (following the manufacturers directions).

I just need help setting up a password for the wireless? It is unsecured at the moment?


Login to your router using your webbrowser.

Most likely its 192.168.0.1 (check the bottom of your router)

In control panel look for security or wpa-wep.

There you can set a own key you want.

GOOD LUCK

How do i make my linksys router secure as at the moment it is unsecured


It depends what you mean by secure. If it is just acces to the router settings then add an adminstrator password. If it is wireless security you are refering to then goto you wireless settings and choose WPA2 as i find it more secure however you can choose any you would like.

Have lynksys wireless router but is unsecure -


You can enable WEP on your router to make your wireless network secure.

To access the screen of the router, type the ip address of the router in the address bar of Internet explorer or Firefox. By default the ip address of the router is 192.168.1.1. If this doesn't work, go to the command prompt (Start -> run -> type cmd). Type ipconfig. Copy the default gateway.

It will prompt you for a user name and password. By default leave the user name blank and then type admin in the password field.

Once you are in the Linksys screen, go to the Wireless tab -> Wireless security.

For the security mode, select WEP.

WEP encryption: 64bits 10 hex digits.

On the Passphrase field, type a wireless password of your choice, then click Generate.

It will give you a key. You will need to copy the wireless network key because you will need to enter this key on your PS3 and laptop. Take note that this is also case sensitive.

Once you click save settings, it will disconnect all your wireless computers.

You will need to manually enter the wireless network key on all your wireless devices. Without the network key, other computers will not be able to connect to your network.

I hope this helps.

Secure network becomes unsecure all of a sudden


Sounds like the battery that backs up this router's "firmware" and "programmable" memory settings may be going bad. Then again, it may not have a battery that does this. Perhaps the little reset button on the back is jammed in?

I need to set up a security password for my router at the moment i have a unsecured network?


Open an internet window type in your router's ip address and hit go, this will take you into your router's configuration. In there you should see a wireless section in which will be security, you can secure your network there (use WPA or WPA2 it's the most secure). When you have set this you will need to enter your password to all the wireless devices connected to your network.
If you google your routers make and setting up security, you should find a step by step guide.
Hope this helps

Log in to your router and select the wireless tab. Then click on wireless security. Set your security mode, encryption type and create a key that will be needed to connect to the router wirelessly. Administration tab should be right next to status tab.
