OK. I found an on-line guide to manually setting up secuirty on your router. Please save this attached file to your computer.

Kocos,

Once you have saved that file, please open it and follow from step from page 4 of the PDF, titled
Setting WPA Security (Only for Windows 2000 and Windows XP)

Log into your router, and see if the pages shown in the manual resemble those of your router - I recommend do not make any changes, unless you feel comfortable with doing that. If you decide to make the changes : note you MUST connect to the router with an ethernet cable to make the changes.

The manual is quite well written, so I think you should be able to follow all the steps from page 4 right to the end easily. If you aren't sure, post here and someone will help you.

Please post back and let us know how you got on.

Regards,
Golden
