Configure Wireless Security For Linksys WRT54G Router
Friday, 07 December 2007
Keep unwanted neighbors and nearby laptop users for stealing access to your Internet connection. You can never be
certain of what wifi theives are doing under your account. Even if their activity is not questionable they are still taking up
your resources without permission.
Here are the step-by-step instructions to secure wifi on your Linksys WRT54G wireless access point to prevent intruders:
- Log in to your router by opening your web browser and going to http://192.168.1.1 - this is the address to acces your
router. If this is your first time logging in, leave the username field blank and enter 'admin' (without the quote marks of
course) as the password.
- The first thing to do is back up your current configuration. This way if you set something incorrectly you can always
revert back to the original setup. Click the "Administration" tab.
- Click "Config Management"
- Click the "Backup" button. Choose a location to save your configuration where you will remember.
- Click the "Wireless" tab.
- Where it says "Wireless Network Name (SSID)" enter a unique SSID name for your wifi to be identified when your
laptop scans for access points.
- Where it says "Wireless SSID Broadcast:" tick the box that says "Enable".
- Leave the other fields as they are.
- Click the "Save Settings" button and wait for the confirmation page.
- Click the "Continue" button.
- Click "Wireless Security"
- For this example we will use WPA2 Personal encryption. Before you proceed make sure the wireless software your
laptop uses has support for this type.
- Where it says "Security Mode:" select "WPA2 Personal"
- Where it says "WPA Algorithms:" select TKIP+AES
- Where it says "WPA Shared Key:" enter anything you wish here. The longer the key the harder it is to hack. Combining
numbers and letters and avoiding using dictionary words is the best practice. Write down or save this in a safe place.
- Where it says "Group Key Renewal:" enter '3600' (without the quote marks of course).
- Click the "Save Settings" button and wait for the confirmation page.
- Click the "Continue" button.Click here for additional instructions on how to secure a Linksys WRT54G Router
