A protected Wireless router will enable unwanted users to access your Internet connection and sneak your bandwidth. Locking your Wireless router keeps any unacceptable users from getting to your Wireless router and Internet connection without your authorization. When you secure your Wireless Belkin router with the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), you will control who is allowed to access your router by obliging them to enter a safe key that is related with your router.
Secure Your Wireless Belkin Router
Step 1: Open your Web browser and explore to your Belkin router’s address. This address changes between router manufacturers; however three of the most widely recognized locations are “http://192.168.0.1”, “http://192.168.1.1” and “http://192.168.2.1”. Counsel your router’s manual for the exact address if you don’t know the right address.
Step 2: Enter the username and password to access your router. Counsel your router’s manual on the off chance that you don’t have an idea about the username or password.
Step 3: Tap on the “Settings” or “Security” tab.
Step 4: Discover your Belkin router’s security alternative on the page and secure your network by evolving the “Unsecured” alternative to “WPA,” “WPA2” or “WEP.”
Step 5: Enter a passphrase for your router and store the password in a sheltered place.
Step 6: Apply your new settings by clicking “Save” “Apply” or “ok” on the Belkin router’s security page.
