I recently visited a friend in Saskatoon and expressed an interest in setting up a wireless router at home (to allow both computers to access the net). No sooner said than my friend disappeared into his basement and returns with a wireless router he is no longer using. He's got all the parts but no Instruction book.
The unit is a CISCO LINKSYS Broadband Router, Wireless G 2.4 Ghz, Model WRT54Gv5. Set up was dead simple...plug in power and coax cable and we had a connection.
Unfortunately the connection is:
a) not secured (meaning any one can within broadcast range can use our internet connection) and
I'm sure an instruction booklet would have told me how to install a password on the router and enable encription.
You guys are the NetPros (I am the NotPro). Can you direct me to an online instruction booklet for this device or (gently now) instruct me on how to install a password and enable encryption.
Thanks for your consideration of my request for help.
