Hi.

Do the following steps

1. Open Internet Explorer, type on the Address Bar type http://192.168.62.1

2. You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your router username and password now. By default both the username and password are admin. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.

3. Click on Advanced Settings tab at the top, then go to Advanced Wireless tab at the side. There you can enable wireless security. Choose WPA-PSK or WPA-Personal and type your desired password then save or applythe settings. That's it.

My local public network is asking for a security key number


Probably as is open and with no security some one change the wireless setting adding security to the router, Reset the router to factory settings and add a password to reconfigure the router not to the wireless connections, in that way people can still use the public internet but cant configure the router because dont have the password.

Belkin surf n300 security key it doesnt have a security key and if it does we cant find it can you please tell us where it is or what it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! please contact me at peggy1512@comcast.net


Security key is a password that protects you from others getting on your wireless network.

To find key:

Access the management page from your browser. (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Etc.)

The address is: 192.168.2.1

Log onto the router. Default password is left blank. Click "submit"


Click on the "Wireless Setup" link

on that page you will see your SSID and you security key.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!

Thanks, Joe

We have tried to put password on before but on checking things over it looks like we were unsuccessful. please tell me how to protect my belkin wireless G+ mimo router


First connect your belkin router to computer with ethernet lan cable.
Then you can access it with following link
http://192.168.15.1
if you are not able to access it with above link then you need to reset your router to defaults
For that press RESET button it is in back side of router.
Press it for 10 seconds then all settings goes to defaults.
Then try above link
Then type in user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"
then you can see router configuration page.
Click on weireless and then enable Wireless security
Enaqble WEP then add WEP code it is your password to connect your wi fi internet then save and restart router.
Then only conects to your router who know the WEP password which you set in router.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

How do I set up a password or protect my wireless from letting everyone in the neighborhood use it. I got the router sometime ago but never found out how to protect my connection. Now I am worried about...


Your default Ip should be

192.168.1.254

Open internet explorer and type that into the search bar..

it should ask for a user name and password, if you never set it for your router before, leave both blank.

that should open up your routers configuration page.. now click on wireless security and turn on either wpa or wep encryption and choose a password.. once you do so you will have to reconnect to your router and then enter the password you just created..

Now you network is protected and only people with your password will be able to connect wirelessly..

How do i password protect my router from outsiders connecting


Hi, check out the support pages here:-
http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/DG834G.asp

Select your model (v3,v4,v5 etc) then look at the setup pages. Set your security to WPA rather then WEP as this is easily crackable, and with WPA you can choose the password. You should also change the routers admin password to be extra safe.
Let me know if you need anymore help.

Protection on my Mac


Given that you have setup the Internet connection on your router, encrypting the wireless security will be fairly easy for you. Just follow these steps.

1. You should use you PC or MAC that is connected directly to the router via an ethernet cable. You can use PC or MAC, which ever is connected directly to the router (Connected thru cable not wireless).

2. Open Internet Explorer / Firefox (PC) or Safari / Firefox / Internet Explorer (MAC), then go to the address bar and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar and press enter. A window will pop up prompting you for a username and password to access the configuration page for your router. Leave the username blank and type admin as the password (**If that will not work, (Enter admin for both the username and password)

3. You should see the Setup page shown below :

be6ce2f.jpg


4. Click on the Wireless tab at the top of the settings screen. Change the Wireless Network Name (SSID) from the default value to something unique (you can use your name or last name, or any name that you would like, because that will be the name of your wireless network, that will be the one that your wireless computers will detect) then click on Save Settings and then Continue when the Settings are successful dialog is displayed.



5. Now click on the Wireless Security subsection at the top of the page. In order to password protect your wireless network first use the Security Mode dropdown box to select WEP and then from the WEP Security dropdown box select 64 bits 10 hex digits. Choose a password between 6 and 8 characters and type it into the Passphrase box. Then click Generate. It Will generate 4 keys (Key 1-4). You will use key 1 as your password.


6. Finally click Save Settings and then Continue when the Settings are successful dialog is displayed.

7. Now let your wireless PC scan for available wireless networks, find the name of the wireless network that you have specified earlier for SSID then connect to that network. Of course since the network is password protected, it will ask you to enter a password, this is time that you will enter the network key (Key 1 - password).
