put a password in your wireless router! the generic version - if it dont work check your modems website - and dont forget what name and password you give the thing First, make sure the router is on and you're connected to it - the software you are about to run in actually inside the router, so the computer just needs a web browser (like internet explorer) Open a web browser (like internet explorer) and go to this address: http://192.168.0.1 if you don't see anything your router is probably a different address - check your manual or the makers website if it asked you to login, type in the following username and leave the password blank (if you set up an administrator account then log in with the administrator username and password instead) User Name: admin Password: [leave blank] The next screen you see should be the router's config screen. Run the wizard to configure the router; make sure to give it a name and password you can remember. Click the "Wireless" button on the left side of the screen. Activate WEP and generate encryption keys. Pick 64bit keys if you are given a choice (longer keys (128 or 256 bit) will slow your wireless network down a tiny bit more more than shorter (64 bit) keys) don't forget what you set it to.
