You probably know you can set a password for your wireless network to stop others from sharing your network. At the same time, if you want to share your network with anyone in the range of your wireless router, you can remove the password and create an open network. Don’t know how, follow the directions listed below.
1. Open your web browser and enter the router’s IP address. A common URL is: “http://192.168.0.1.” If you don’t know, please consult the user manual. Once you’ve entered the router’s IP address, press “Enter” on your keyboard.
2. Enter in the wireless network administrative user name and password. If you do not know these details, check the router sticker for a username and password. Alternatively, consult the documentation for your router.
3. Locate and click on the security section of your administration page. This will differ depending on what brand router you own. However, all brands will have a “Security” tab somewhere on the page.
4. Your security section will have options for setting up a WPA or WEP password. Click the “Disable” button and then save your changes by clicking “Save” usually located at the bottom of the screen.
5. Connect to your wireless network on your computer to make sure that no password is required to access the Internet.
