Fix a security problem

\015 When I boot up, the computer icon shows wireless connection connected (unsecured) ----------- how do I make this (secure)?\015

Answers :

Hello.
\015\012
\015\012To make your wireless connection secure, you have to change the security settings of the wireless connection in your wireless router, not your laptop. Most wireless routers have a "Web Console", basically a web page to set up the router. Make sure you have a network cable handy incase things go wrong, and if possible, your router manual.
\015\012
\015\012To connect to the router, you need the IP Address of the router. To find this, go to your start button, go into "Run...", (for vista click the start search box) then type "CMD" and press Enter.
\015\012
\015\012A black window will come up. In there type "ipconfig" and press enter. It will list your Network connection details. The one you are interested in is "Default Gateway", under "Wireless LAN Adapter", note this IP address. It's usually something like 192.168.0.1, or 10.0.0.1, but can be a variation on that theme.
\015\012
\015\012Onceyou have the IP address, close this window, and then open Internet Explorer, or Firefox if that's your preference. in the address bar, where you type web addresses, type in the IP address noted earlier. All being well, you will either be prompted for a password, or be taken to the main screen of the router where you can log in. The manual for the router should have the login name and password, usually "Admin" for the username" and "password" for the password. If you dont have the manual, and the above name and password doesn't get you in, Google your router model, and put password in the end of the search IE "Netgear DG834G password" and you should be able to find the default for your model.
\015\012
\015\012Once Logged in, you need to feel your way about the settings, as its very router dependant, but you basically are looking for the wireless security settings. You want to enable WPA and give it a password, then apply. Once you do this, you will loose your network connection. On your windows laptop, you want to go to your wireless connection, disconnect if it still shows connected, then look for your network, you'll know your SSID, its the name that came up with unsecured next to it. Click it, then click connect, and all being well, it should ask for a password. Enter the password you put in the router for WPA, you will need to enter it twice. t should then connect after a minute or so, and you now have a secure connection!.
\015\012
\015\012If this goes wrong, you will need to connect your PC to the router using the network cable, and go into the web console again, ang check the password, and security settings in the router, that way you won't be stuck if it doesn't work, You can always turn security off, or try WEP encryption. It's not as secure, but better than unsecured.

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
