How to secure existing wireless network ?

About 2 years ago I bought Belkin router to set wireless connection from modem to 3 PC's at my apartment. But recently I learned that I have to secure it, to set a passworded setup. Where, in what utility I can do it ?

Hi George1234,

You may secure your wireless network thru your router's setting by following this Tutorial. Please use the highest network encryption which is WPA2, make sure that you apply the same security setting to all your wireless devices in your network with the proper pass-phrase.

If for some reason, you're having a hard time connecting your wireless computers to your Belkin router, please follow this Article on how to manually connect to your SSID (wireless network name).

An update will be nice.
