Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Your security settings are found on the Linksys admin web page. Log on using the default user name and password provided in the documentation and navigate to the security settings to set up your encryption. You will want to change the default logon and password while you are there as well.

    Letters and numbers help add security - if you'd like to tighten things up even more, a higher encryption will also be able to use characters. Add a mix of uppercase/lower case in your letters, increase the length of your password - every little bit helps!
