I just installed this router. How do I install security settings for it?


Access your router with insturctions below then find the security tab and decide what type security you want.
The only secure encryption is WPA2.

When you allow WPA-TKIP to be run alongside for compatibility, you just eliminated the only security you had.


All of the other "security" methods for a home router are useless. Disabling or altering the SSID broadcast does not protect the connection from anything, and neither does MAC filtering. Both are trivial to get around, and are more useful for administrative purposes such as load balancing between multiple access points on a network.


To open the set up page of the router of the router , one of your computer should be able to go online through the router.
It could be a wired computer or wireless computer.
If it is a wireless computer then make sure that the computer is connected to your own wireless network.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router using a wireless computer.
OK ! Now you have a computer online through the router and you want to open the set up page of the router.

First step is check the IP address of the computer.
Check the IP address and the Default gateway on the computer.

For Windows XP

START ==> RUN ==> type in cmd in the RUN box==> click OK or Hit ENTER . You will see a black window that is a command prompt . In the black window type in " ipconfig " ==> and Hit ENTER on your key board .

For Windows Vista and Windows 7

click on START ==> type in cmd in the start search box ==> enter ==> you will see the black window. Type in " ipconfig "you will see a lot of information. Try to find out the local area connection IPv4 address .

Note down the Default gateway number.

For MAC OS

Click APPLE icon in the right top corner of the computer. Go to System Preferences ==> go to Network ==> you will find the option Built in Ethernet or Airport whichever is connected. If you go to that you will find the Ip address and router Address.

The default gateway is the IP address of your router.

This IP address of the router will be used to open the set up page of the router

Now you got the IP address of the router.Open the Internet Browser ( Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari )

In the Address bar of the browser Type the IP address of the router.

Do not type http:// or www just type in the IP address only.

It will ask you for the user name and the password of the router.

This is the User name and the password of the router and NOT the wireless password. On a wireless router, there are 2 passwords. One is to access the router and the other one is for the wireless network.

For most of the routers the default password will be " admin " . for some routers the default password is " password ". For Linksys router the default password is admin and no user name.

I need IP address to change password


The default IP address for the US Robotics USR5461 Wireless MAXg Router is:

192.168.2.1

If the address has been changed then you will need to reset the router using a thin tool, such as a paper clip, to press in the reset button on the rear.

How to set port forwarding?


Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. By default the IP address should be set to 192.168.1.1.

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

Click the Firewall button near the top of the page. Use the Protocol drop down box to select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding. If you are forwarding a single port, enter that port number into the LAN port range, Left WAN port range and the Right WAN port range boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports, enter the lowest number of that range into the LAN port range, Left WAN port range box. Then enter the highest number of that range into the Right WAN port range box. Enter the IP address to forward these ports to into the LAN IP Address box. If you are forwarding ports so you can run a program on your computer, you should enter your computer's ip address into that box. When you are finished, click the Add button.

When you're finished, click Save near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.

And that's it! You're done! Hope this helps.

Password


If you happen the forgot the router's password the only way around is to do a hard reset(hold the reset button at the back of the router for 5 to 10 seconds - this will wipe out all your previous settings) on the device but if you just need to change the default password to something different here's how;

Open an Internet browser(Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari) and enter the Wireless MAXg Router's IP address. The following is the default IP address of the Wireless MAXg Router: http://192.168.2.1

You will not be prompted to login the first time you connect to the Web User Interface during the initial setup. During the Setup Wizard procedure, you will be prompted to create a user name and password to log on to the router. If you create a user name and password, you will need to use these whenever you want to log on to the Wireless MAXg Router. The user name and password are case-sensitive.

Go to the Security tab and now you can enter or change the username and password of your US Robotics router, you can also enable wireless security(encryption) like WEP or WPA on the Security tab so that you can properly secure you router against unwanted freeloaders/computers getting wireless access through your router.

Hope this steps would help you settings up your router if you have further questions regarding setup just post a reply.

Getting secure


maybe your router is not using the 192.168.2.1 ip address anymore. the only way to enable the security is to access the router's page but if you want you can run the installation cd again since it'll ask you if you want to secure your network but you need reinstall everything just like you installed it out of the box.
or you can just check the ip address of your router.

here are the steps

- use a hardwired computer and access the command prompt (for windows computers, click on start, then click on run, then type cmd)
- it'll prompt you now with a black screen, on the blinking cursor, type ipconfig/all
- take note of the default gateway address that's the ip address being used by your router
- enter the default gateway's address on address bar of your browser and it shoould prompt you for the username and password, enter the username and password of your router
- it'll prompt you now with the roouter's page, click on the wireless part and set up your security

hope this'll help you

ciao!
