Hello,

I've already had someone set up the wireless network for me with everything already connected and working. Is there are way in which I can quickly add a password to it, or do I need to install the network from scratch again?

Thanks

Log into the router and you can set security from there.

I think I was a bit unclear, I didn't create the network - someone else did that for me. So, I never really saw how it was installed and have no clue about changing the settings, so could you clarify or maybe give some step by step instructions?

Thanks in advance.

Click on the Start button and choose Run.
When the Run Dialog Box opens type in cmd, then press the Enter/Return key.
(In Windows Vista, you type cmd into the search box after clicking on the Start Button\Windows Orb)

Once a black box opens up type ipconfig then press the Enter/Return key
To the right of where it says Default Gateway you'll see a number like 192.168.1.1

Remember that number and type it into the address bar of your Web Browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.)

That's one way of getting into your routers configuration screen.

For a 2Wire router, you typically type home into the address bar of your Web Browser.
