How to Set up WPA/WPA2 Security in a Belkin Router

Chances are that in fear of wireless network hijack, bandwidth theft, online intrusion, or virus infections, you might want to secure your wireless network. Setting up an encryption key is the best method for protecting your home or wireless network. Your Belkin router has both WEP and WPA encryption types. In this post, I am going to discuss about the WPA2 security key, which is better in terms of security than WEP. Check the steps given below and secure your wireless network:
Step1: If you have a wireless network configured, you will need to make a wired connection first. Connect your computer directly to your Belkin router using the Ethernet cord.
Step2: Open up the Belkin router’s web interface. To do so, first open your web browser and type ‘192.168.2.1’ in the address bar. Hit Enter to proceed.
Step3: Click Login in the upper right hand side. Enter your Belkin router’s password and then click Submit. Belkin routers, by default, are shipped without passwords. So you can just click Submit. However, do check your Belkin router support docs for exact details.
Step4: On the Belkin Router Setup Wizard window, click Security under Wireless in the left hand side. Beside Security Mode, click the drop-down menu and select WPA/WPA2-Personal (PSK). (See Also how to reset Belkin router to factory settings)
Step5: Beside Authentication, select an authentication type. Once you select the authentication type, the Encryption Technique field will automatically populate.
Step6: Type your password in the Pre-Shared Key (PSK) box. The password should be 8-63 characters (alpha-numeric) long. Also you can use a combination of upper and lower case to make your case sensitive and difficult to crack.
Step7: Make sure that you note down or memorize your password to avoid losing a track of it. Since memorizing the password doesn’t always work, it’s better to make a note of it.
Step8: Click Save Settings to save the changes. From now onwards, any wireless computer that connects to your wireless network will have to provide this encryption key. And that’s it!
