It is recommended to use the WPA2-PSK encryption although you may select the encryption type that is more suitable for your network.

If you will be using the WPA encryption method, you will enter in a custom password in the Passphrase field then choose Apply/Save.

If you will be using the WEP encryption method, you will enter random text into the passphrase field and click generate. It will then provide you with an encryption key to use. Copy the hexadecimal number in the key 1 field. Choose apply and then choose Save Config to save those changes.

Upon completing the above steps, you will need to reconnect to your network using your new wireless key. *Vista users may have to uninstall and reinstall their wireless adapters in order to reconnect to the wireless network.
