    • 1). Log in to the access point as an Administrator user. The details depend on the make and model of the access point. For example, for a Linksys WRT54GS, double-click on the Internet Explorer icon on the Vista desktop, then navigate to Web address "192.168.1.1." Enter "admin" as the user name, then enter the administrator's password, then click "OK."

    • 2). Navigate the Web-based configuration utility to the wireless security panel. For example, for a Linksys WRT54GS, click "Wireless," then "Wireless security."

    • 3). Select the "WPA2 Personal" security mode.

    • 4). Choose a WPA2 pass phrase. Make it difficult to guess. It should contain at least 16 alphanumeric characters, and contain no word you can find on a dictionary.

    • 5). Make the current configuration permanent. For example, on a WRT54GS, click on "Save settings." At that point, WPA2 encryption will have been turned on for that wireless network.
