hey there,

ok to set it up i am assuming you have the ip address for it?
possibly or something like that...should be on the bottom maybe. it should also give you the defualt username and password.



once you type your ip address for the router into the address bar you should then log in to access it.

from here you can change all the settings but there should be a 'security' tab or 'set password' tab some where along those lines...

so basicly you just do may also come under 'encryption type' try make it WEP or something..its standard password..but you can put it how strong you like

hope this helps
