To change the password, simply click on the Password tab and enter your new password.

Step3: When you buy a wireless router, it comes with a default SSID that's the same for the thousands, or millions, of routers the manufacturer makes. Set your Service Set Identifier (SSID) by typing it into the box. This is the name of your wireless network. Make it a unique phrase; the default SSID is usually the name of the router manufacturer, such as Netgear or Belkin.

Step4: Set your wireless network's security protocol to WPA 2.0 -- Wi-Fi Protected Access. This encrypts any data sent over the network and allows access only to users who have the security key. Set your security key as something not easily guessed. A string of random numbers and letters is recommended. Be sure to record this security key in a safe place so you can recall it when adding a new device to your network or changing network security settings.
