A window requesting a login will appear. Type the word admin (all lowercase) in both the username and password fields, and click OK or Login

Click Enable at the top

Clear the ESSID field and type a name for your wireless network. The network name can be anything you like, and is not case-sensitive

We highly recommend putting a password or network key in place to keep your network secure. Clear the WPA Shared Key field, and type in a password you will remember. The password must be at least eight characters long, and is case-sensitive

It will take a moment to save your new settings. Once the status screen appears, you can exit your browser and try out your new wireless network

Click on Security on the left

The wireless password is masked, but you can display it by clicking the link that says Click here to display and the password will show up in a separate window. You can change it by clearing the passphrase field and entering a new one. Please note that the password must be at least eight characters long, and it is case sensitive.
