You can manually setup the security. You can check this link on how to manually setup a security. You follow these steps.

1. use a computer that is wired direclty to the router. Open you browser and type this number in the address bar. http://192.168.1.1. no username and password is admin. say ok.
2. Once you are in the linksys setup screen, click on the tab at the top that says Wireless, make sure to set the wireless setting to manual setup and hit save settings at the very bottom of the page and once your back look at the top where you clicked wireless, right under that click on the subtab that says wireless security. Set the security mode to WPA-Personal. and on the WPA-Shared key box type the password that you want to use. (it should be a minimum of 8 characters)

How to secure the router


  • First of all you need to change the default password and put your own password.

  • Many routers today will offer two different security schemes: WEP and WPA. We recommend WPA security, since it is more secure than WEP.
  • The SSID is the name that identifies your wireless router. By default, many routers will use the name of the router as the default SSID, for example, Linksys routers will often use 'Linksys' as the SSID. This is a security risk since it identifies the brand of the router and would let any attacker immediately know what exploits to use.

  • If firewall is available then enable it.
  • Disable SSID broadcast
  • Enable the wireless MAC filter.The Wireless MAC filter feature will only allow a wireless device to connect to your router if the MAC Address has been entered into the filter list.

If you have Wireless MAC Filter Enabled on the Router then Either ADD the Wireless MAC Address of the Wii on the router or disable the Wireless MAC Filter on the router, also check the level of the Wireless Security supported by the Wii and accordingly set it up on the Router.

Cannot connect my new Apple MacBook Pro to mt DIR 655. Are there specific drivers to install for the MacBook Pro?


No -there are no drivers to install. I would even suggest not to use any CD that came with the router (in your case the so-called "Quick Router Setup Wizard CD".
It is always better to configure the router by hand, otherwise you have to look forever if you have to troubleshoot.

If you connect your Mac to your DSL- or cable modem, can you access the internet?
If yes, then you have to configure your router. If not, then there is a problem with your internet connection in general and you have to contact your ISP.

Connect to your router (via cable) and check that the SSID is broadcasted and your wireless security is turned off, until you can connect wireless to your router. Look at the manual page 22 (if you don't have a manual, you can get it here.)
  • Enable Wireless: ON
  • SSID: whatever you like
  • 802.11 Mode: MIXED (unless your MAC is 802.11n capable - you can change that later)
  • Channel Width: AUTO
  • Visibility Status: VISIBLE
Then follow the Wireless Security Setup Wizard (ideally do it manually, but this works too). You find a description up from page 64 in your manual. For now, select no wireless security and complete the wizard. Don't forget to save your settings.

Now you should be able to connect to your routerwireless from your Mac.
After this is accomplished, go back to the wireless security setup and secure your network with WPA2 Authentication.

If you have any more questions or get stuck at one point, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Can't set up security for Netgear 824


LOL you bought it, you get to figure out how it works.

I used a MAC for a day, and the owner had to tell me how everything works. If you can get to the internet, I imagine you can go to www.routerlogin.com and get access to the Netgear. The Wireless Settings tab on my Netgear brings up text sensitive help on making security and wireless work.
