noob post, need some very basic security help

Postby kornclown2002 » Mon Jan 26, 2004 1:37 pm

Hi, I've read a lot of websites about how to secure my wireless network and it talks about changing the ssid password. What I was wondering is how to I change the ssid password on my network. I can't even figure out how to get to my router settings, so I need very basic step by step instructions. Thanks.

Step by step insructions-

Step 1. Determine who manufactured the router and what model it is. It should say somewhere on the case (Linksys, D-Link, Netgear, etc)

Step 2. Go to the website of the manufacturer and find the support section.

Step 3. Read the directions.

Step 4. Read them again.

Step 5. Read them aloud to yourself.

Step 6. Follow said directions.

Step 7. Wipe hands on pants.

Then you call the guy and hold the burning fuse up to the phone.
"Hear that?" you say. "That's dynamite, baby." -Jack Handey
