    Did you mean secure your wireless router from other wireless users to access your internet connection? If so, what is the Brand and Model of your router?

Hi onlyforu48,

I see that you want to put Security on your Network Connection.

1. First we need to find out what Default Gateway your Router has, this depends on what Router you have. To find your Default Gateway we need to click on Start then click All Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt, this will show you a black window with a blinking cursor.

2. In Command Prompt type in IPCONFIG then press enter, this should should pull up information showing your IP Address/Subnet Mask/Default Gateway, we need the Default Gateway info only it should look like an IP Address ex. 192.168.2.1

3. Once we have your Routers Default Gateway we will need to open Internet Explorer or any browser that you my have on your computer, type in the Default Gateway on the Address bar then press ENTER, this should prompt you for a user name and password. If you have changed your Routers user name and password please use the User Name and Password that you have created if you haven't changed any thing on your Routers user name and password then you can try admin for the User Name and password for the password or admin and sometimes you can just leave it blank.

4. Once inside the Routers settings page look for wireless then under wireless look for security this should give you the option to create a Network Key in your router, make sure your write down your network key on a piece of paper incase you may forget.

I Hope this will help regarding your Router security question, have a nice day.

Cant connect my sons nintendo 3ds to the internet


Hello. For setting up an internet connection with your Nintendo 3DS, you have to follow these easy steps:

1. Turn on your console and go to System Settings
2. Tap Internet Settings
3. Tap Connection Settings
4. Tap New Connection
5. Tap Manual Setup
6. Tap Search for Access Point (Here, your Nintendo will search for any wireless connections in range. You will see a status message: Access point found)
7. Look for a Wireless connection (if it's not yours, you have to know the password in order to acces other's connections) Every locked/unlocked connection has a lock/unlock icon. Acces the unlocked icon and then you are connected!

Note: If you didn't manage it / if you don't know your wireless security key / if you are not sure which wireless connection is yours or if you don't see any, please leave a REPLY.

I hope I helped!

How do i connect to the internet?


you need a wireless router and use the WFC setup tool to access it if you see the name or your router displayed (possibly with others) and the lock icon is blue you can use it without a WEP key, if the icon is red enter your WEP and proceed with a connection check, if the lock icon is grey it is unusable altogether. hope i helped.

I hooked up our wii to the internet via our dlink wireless now all the computers are locked out, my account says inactive and when i try to access the internet it goes into a loop...whats up?


The Wii could have triggered your connection settings inside your router firmware to lock up. Router settings may need to be configured to work with your Wii and the other PCs OK

How do I lock my modem using password?


You open up Internet Explorer and type in your i.p address, example : 192.168.0.2, you can normally find your i.p address in network connections, and open the internet connection up, and click on details and your i.p address should be there. once you are on your ip address settings, click wireless settings and then there should be security options, and then you can put security on.

Reply back if this doesnt work.

Thanks.

Internet/network problems


Connecting the laptop to your network using a network cable, does this solve your Internet problems?
Does this works without the Internet connection dropping out?
If the wireless connection has a low signal, try positioning the wireless router or the laptop to get a better signal strength.
Also try reinstalling your wireless driver.

Computer disconnects from Internet when my neighbor is using his computer


the Lock means that he has a secure network or he has the WAP enabled.. Can the two networks interfere? Yes. The two networks will "fight" over which one will your computer use to connect.. and sometimes you will connect to his network and therefore get no internet or limited connectivity.. You can make sure that your computer only connects to your network by permanently removing his SSID from your settings.
