✔ Best Answer

You probably need a wpa passphrase or wep key to connect wirelessly. If the wireless connection is secured it usually shows the wireless signal with a little key emblem or says wpa or wep, wpa2. All of which require you to know the password. You can reset the router if you do not remember it.

ok so you bought a new router which will be unsecured so you should be able to connect right away to the wireless portion. You should read the manual and put in a passphrase for wireless protection or anyone else who can see your signal will have access.
