Password protection of a Wi-Fi does not allow other users to steal wireless internet if they have the password. You can set a password on your Wi-Fi router. Each router has its own management application, but each has a general configuration and the same type of encryption options. These options provide you with a password protected settings.
- Open a web browser on a computer connected to a Wi-Fi router. Enter the IP address in the text box navigation. Most routers use “192.168.1.1″ as the default router IP. Enter the user name and administrator password in the login screen and press “Enter”.
- Click on the tab “Wireless Setup” on the router console application. Some routers show “Wireless” tab as text. The display will show all the wireless settings.
- Click the option to enable wireless encryption. When you enable encryption, a text box will appear asking you wireless password. Enter the password on it.
- Click “WPA-2″ drop-down menu called “encryption type”. Click “Save” to save the router’s configuration. The router will perform a simple reboot, and the password is now required to access Wi-Fi service.
