resetting wireless security

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?RGFuaWVsbGU=?=, Oct 28, 2006.

  1. A storm knocked out our ethernet in the main desktop computer, though the
    wireless still worked. Everything is back up and running now, except when I
    originally set up the wireless, I secured it. And somehow, that setting has
    changed and now my network is unsecure, and I can't figure out how to make it
    secure again.

    Presumably you've got your wired portion of the network on again.
    Connect one of the machines to the router via ethernet. Enter the
    router's IP address into a browser addressbar. If the router was set
    back to factory condition, enter the default user/password. Otherwise
    enter the one you used to set it up. Go to the wireless settings and
    enter your desired security settings. Refer to the router manual for
    details.
