I am using model BEFW11S4 WIRELESS B I came into a situation in which
for two days I could not go wireless. Signal strengh showed as very
good to excellent, but the actual packets were not been delivered. I
could not surf the internet at all. Now, I just decided to work. Also
my wireless network connection shows me as having an unsecured network.
How do I make it appear secure like others I see in my network
displayed with a padlock? I also have issues that cause my connection
to drop momentarily , but connects fairly quick, which sometimes I
don't even notice it, unless I am listening to streaming content. I
would appreciate your help inmensely, thank you , Luis CArlos

From a post about 2 weeks ago:


This is what I just finished doing today on my Linksys Wireless B Router
(BEFW11S4) using a DSL internet connection:

1. Change the default router password (my default was 'admin') to your own
personal one.
2. Enable WEP (128 bit).
3. Use MAC filtering.
4. Change the default channel (usually 6) to something else....pick one! I
switched to Channel 3.
5. Change the default SSID (mine was 'linksys') to like 'LuisNetwork' or
something like that.

The product support pages at http://www.linksys.com guide you on how to do
these 5 things.
