SOURCE: Secure wireless connection to the internet.

Hello Peter, I'll try and help if I can. I'm assuming you're using Windows XP.
First, when enabling security on your router, it is best to connect using a wired, rather than wireless connection.
Open your web browser, as if about to view a web page, but instead type the address of your router in the address bar. I think this is (Note there is no 'www'.)

If successful, you should see a screen asking for a password. The default is set as blank, so just click 'login'.
You should see a home page. Click the option for 'Advanced Setup'. Then click the left hand menu item, 'System', then 'Password Settings'.
You should see a screen where you can change your current (blank) password to a password of your choice, and then confirm the choice (it should have 3 to 12 characters, letters and/or numbers). Click 'Apply' to save the settings.
To secure your router, there are a couple more steps to follow. Click the 'Wireless' option on the left hand menu. Under 'Channel and SSID', you should see a screen which shows your SSID (a name for the router)....It is a good security idea to change this to another name - anything you like, as long as you can remember it! Click 'Apply' to confirm the new setting.
Then select 'Encryption' from the Wireless menu. Select 128 bit WEP encryption. You should see a box asking for a 'passphrase'. Enter any phrase, made up from letters and numbers, with no spaces, and click 'Generate'.
I hope you will then see a series of numbers split into boxes. Write down the numbers in sequence (or maybe you could print the screen?). This is your encryption key. Click 'Apply' to save the settings.
You can then exit from this screen.
The last thing to do is set up your wireless adapter connection (eg, a laptop, or whichever computer has the wireless connection). When your wireless connection tries to access the internet, you should see your router with its new name come up in the 'available networks'. Click to connect, then enter your WEP key when prompted.
I hope this helps you. I'm not a pro, just lending a hand, so please come back to Fixya if anything is not clear, or doesn't work as expected! All the best.

I don't know how to set up a password for my wireless internet connection. How do I do it?

First you connect an ethernet cable from your computer to one of your lan ports on your router. Then you go to and log in with the credentials username:admin password:smcadmin. From there you can change the wireless password in the settings. Sincerely, Nick

Op de SMCWBR14-G2 sttat geen reset toets op. Hoe kan ik deze router dan resetten?


Well, once reset you will need to login to the interface and resetup all the connection information. You can do that from the WEB interface just logon and reset. No special software (except a web browser) is needed.
I think the SMC default address is just log on and set it up. Resetting just restores the factory defaults, it does not erase the system.

Rarely does a router need software on a computer. Even the linksys that have a big sticker USE CD FIRST -- its only there for those who don't understand routers!

Click the Wireless > Security link from the page menu on the left-hand side.

On the Wireless > Security page, you can retrieve your password(s) from the fields to the right of the Pre-shared Key (PSK) > entry. (in the gray box menu on left)
