How do I password protect my linksys router?

I have had an unprotected signal too long and don't know, how to password protect it? Please help.

Password Protection on Linksys Router:

  • To protect your wireless network just log on to your wireless Linksys router admin @ https://192.168.1.1 then go to wireless tab.
  • Under that there's a sub-tab called "wireless security", just choose WPA then set your password.
  • On your computer reconnect to your wireless network then supply the password if asked.

Password Protect of Linksys Router:

  • Try opening your browser and go to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. You can try that and see if it lets you in.
  • If it asks you for a password you can try leaving it blank and if it asks for a username try admin.
  • Look at the bottom of your router and it may tell you the default password.
  • When you get in if you can look a round for WEP security or and type of security like that. Type a password in and save it and write it down somewhere so you remember it or you will have to change it again.
