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.

My wireless internet wont connect to my computer


If you click on Start, connect to and then select show all connections does your network show up? If not then I suspect your Windows Zero configuration service is not started. Goto control panel, admin, services and be sure it's started.

Are you using any type of security on the router like WPA or WEP? Look at the network settings of one that is working and be sure you are set the same on the one that does not work.

Also, if your router is using MAC filtering be sure your PC's MAC address is added to the routers list of acceptable MACs.

Try these and let me know what you find.

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.

You could try changing the security. Some of the older laptops have trouble with the new WPA2 security. Use WEP and you should be OK if this is the problem. Good luck TT

Change router locaation


do factory reset of configuration settings then log in with the routers default credentials. then change settings to your liking with one exception: DO NOT USE WEP!!!!! At a minimum use WPA 1 personal (with MAC filtering if you know how.) WEP can be hacked in less than 5 minutes.

Purchased a Compaq with a Broad com adapter


It is possible that USR is using mAC filtering as a form of security. Your new Compaq adapter has a MAC address. You can try getting the mac address of this device and input this on the USR
