Hi, if you open internet explorer and then in the address bar type and press enter this should get you into the configuration page. Once there press return on the first screen then goto the security section by selecting the security tab on the left of the screen. You will see that you can select various types of protection such as wep or wap. this is the encryption security. the best type i believe wep is the best but i am not sure. you type in a word for example steamtrain and it will give you a code key make a note of it and then press the save button. now when you try to reconnect it will ask for apassword and type in the code generated you will now be secure, you will be able to access the router with each computer that has the password. hope this helps, regards mike

If you think that WEP is the best type of encryption protocol, click here. Then search for WEP cracking.
