Does your wireless equipment support any form of wireless security?
All of our supplied routers support both MAC address authentication, WEP, WPA and SSID hiding. By default, we ship all Thomson/Speedtouch routers with security enabled.
There are no guarantees every configuration will work with every type of wireless network card or driver, you may need to use an ethernet (CAT5 cable) to connect your PC to make changes to the wireless configuration.
We recommend all users of wireless equipment use MAC address authentication as a minimum. With Windows XP onwards and Mac OSX, both WEP and WPA are trivial to configure. Please see our knowledge base for further articles on the subject, or consult the user manual provided with the router.
