Wireless password

How can I set up a password on my Westell Versalink model 327W from verizon? It seems that our wireless signal is being highjacked and we are charged with copyright infringement. I have looked at the model 327W manual on line - it is huge and intimidating. The unit has never had a password.  Thanks

Yes, you do have a password. It is set up by default if nothing else.  Sounds more like you have your network security turned off.

You do need to read the manual.  You can download it to a CD, take it to Kinkos and have them print it, if that will help.

Printing it in black and white is cheaper.

This might help

In addition, Google is your friend.  Try something like:  network security Verizon 327W

We have no idea what devices you have on your network.  Remember that as you change network security, you will change the ability for each of those devices to connect to your network.  It's what keeps out the bad guys.  But, it can also keep out the good guys. Keep track of where your networkand devices are now, And then make sure they all agree as you move along.

Re: Wireless password

 How can I change my wireless network to WPA2 or WPA encryption?

Verizon recommends using the strongest network encryption compatible with your network devices. In most cases, that is WPA2 encryption. However, you will notice some of the older devices below may not be compatible with WPA2 encryption. In those instances, WPA is the preferred encryption because it is still stronger than WEP.

For step-by-step instructions for upgrading your network security, select the router or gateway you are using and the type of encryption you prefer.
