My wireless connection is unsecured, which makes me nervous. The manual tells me that i could change the default password which are 4 characters in configuring it. So when i get to the area to enter new password, there are shown 3 entry boxes...the top one already shows 14 characters of which i know nothing about, and the two below are empty...one is to enter the new pw and the second to confirm it. So I do enter a new one and etc. and after applying the change, the old default entry appears...with no instructions, so i assumed it wants me to enter the new password, which i do, and then my network info along with all the nearby entrys in my neighborhood is shown as secured, but the word 'automatic' is shown above it but its not getting full strength. I high lite it and click on the connect button...it goes on and on but does nothing and am booted out of the internet. I have XP SP3 and the router is attached to my cable modem and its generic..no model number and etc..but i do have the cd for it, that instructed me how to do that.
