How To Set Password on WRT54G

When I first got my WRT54G Wireless Router I chose not to set a password that would have to be used in order for pepole to have access to my wireless internet signal.
 
I now want to set a password which would need to be used by anyone who wants to use my wireless signal to access the internet.
 
What is th easiest way to do this???

easiest way to do it
(explaining v5, may be different for other versions)

1. point your browser to 192.168.1.1
2. enter an admin pass if you set one
3. click wireless
4. click wireless security
5. under security mode, choose one (I use WPA personal)
6. enter the password you want in the WPA shared key
7. save changes and you should be good to go, now all connecting clients will need to enter the WPA shared key to get access to your wireless network

ok, try the wizard ckilba suggested, hopefully that'll work, and just out of curiousity, what version of the WRT54G are you running

if you don't know, look at the bottom of the router and somewhere it'll say WRT54G vX with X being your version number

version 2

If try the other method what additional information will i need to enter or does this set up enter all the information on its own except of course for the password i will want to use?

DO you know if there are any update downloads for my version of router?

Re: How To Set Password on WRT54G

hi all , does anyone know how to stop the password from changing. I have to manually change the "wpa key"  on my laptop every 2 days.
