Password Protection on Linksys Router:

  • To protect your wireless network just log on to your wireless Linksys router admin @ 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.
