Question about Computers & Internet
You'll first need to plug your computer into the router, which I'll
assume you've already done. Next, open an internet browser (Internet
Explorer/Firefox/Safari), type your IP address into the address
bar(where you normally type a website address like futureshop.ca into).
If you're unsure of your IP address, click here to find out.
Copy the long number into your address bar and press enter. This should
bring up your router's configuration page. Here there should be an
option somewhere to change the password to your router.
Good Luck, KoBaC

It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below.
Things to set:
Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes.
1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.
2. Set a recognizable system ID.
3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.
a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.
4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.
