I have never used wireless networking before so I'm sort of clueless. I installed the ASUS PCE-N15 Wireless-N adapter in my Windows 7 64b computer so I can use the wireless Epson WorkForce 545 All in one printer. I finally got everything working and the printer prints. My problem is I want to make sure my wireless network is secure so none of my neighbors can hook up to my computer but I can't for the life of me figure out what to do or how to set up the security settings. My icon in the system tray shows I'm connected but it has a yellow triangle and says it's unsecured. How do I set up the security settings so hopefully I'm protected from intruders?
1)Open the web browser that you use: Firefox,Google Chrome,IE,or Opera and type in the IP address for your router,and press the Enter key. http://www.routeripaddress.com/< Router ip addresses can be found here
2)A window will open and then type in your routers default username and password,and press the Enter key again http://www.routerpasswords.com/< Router usernames and passwords found here ***** Username and Password may also be located on the side or bottom of your router *****
3)Navigate to the Wireless Security\Network Security Settings Tab and open to locate or change your WEP or WPA Security Passphrase. Use WPA because it provides better security.
4)Write this Security Passphrase down and put it in a safe place to access when needed.
I just signed into the http://192.168.1.254 address and printed out the connection information. By the way I just realized I am not able to print to the Epson printer like I thought I could. It showed to be connected and set up after running the wireless set up wizard on the printer but when I tried to print out that Connection Information it wouldn't print to it.
