    If you can find your router instruction manual that would be the best as almost every router is different, if you cant find it then provide us with the make and model and ill try and hunt down the instructions and talk you through what to do.

    Our belking router IP is 192.168.0.1 so i will assume yours is the same as well.

    Log on their and then select the security setting on the left hand side of the page.

    The read the on screen instructions and it will all be set up for ya
