    Belkin54G Password Issues
    Hi guys,
    At the risk of posting a noob question! I going to post it anyway.

    Just bought the above router, I'm connecting via Airport. It all works swimmingly, apart from the PC upstairs can't connect to the internet? Oh well every cloud and all that!!
    However, whilst my connection is working well, it doesn't have a password on the connection, so every tom **** or harry on my street can use my connection.
    How would I put a password on?? I'm a relative noob to the Mac system.
    I Have tried various tips and read a few forums, all draw a blank.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers
    J

    i dont have time to post a detailed answer...but i'm sure somebody will help you out soon.

    As far as I know...you are going to have to make a wired connection from your router to your computer just for the moment. then you can access the routers settings from you computer and set up a password on the system.

    Never worked with a belkin before but read the manual and see what IP address takes you to the router config and use a wired connection just to set it up. If you have any issues with WPA or WEP or whatever you use, let us know. I would use WPA if you want it as secure as possible.

    I was going to use WEP, however I stuggling to set anything up, so I'll take as much advice as you guys can give.

    Thanks in advance!
