I just bought a new router, the Linksys WRT54GX4 SRS 400 router. This baby packs a lot of power and puts out an incredible amount of range -- far better than the D-Link 624 Wireless Router I had before. This concerns me greatly as with so much range I am afraid that neighbors will tap into my wireless connection. I need to secure my connection. I have a few questions I hope you can assist with.... First, I hate setting up or fiddling with routers. One mistake can lead to the loss of all your initial settings or even a router lockup that can render your unit permanently useless. I need to know EXACTLY what has to be done in the most simplistic terms possible. 1. Is there software that I can buy that will automatically secure my network? I'd rather go that route than risk going into the router settings and doing something I shouldn't be. 2. If you recommend I do go into my router settings, where EXACTLY do I go? Does the password have anything to do with the HEX CODE settings, and if so, how do I pick those numbers? If not, do I just put in any worded password I like? Now....regarding the LAPTOP on the receiving side... 3. Once I password my network, what happens when I try to log into it with my laptop? I would love to have some sort of screen come up on the laptop that asks for the password (such as what you get when using WiFi at a hotel). 4. If a password screen on the laptop is an impossibility, where do I go in the network area to put the password I need for the laptop to receive the WiFi signal? I'd like to make this process as easy as possible as my brother sometimes is visiting my home with his laptop and I'd like logging him into my network to be as hassle-free. Would greatly appreciate any advice that you guys can provide on easily securing my WiFi network.
