Open your web browser and log-in to the device at "192.168.15.1". The default username and password is "router" without the quotes. Be sure to change the username and password. This can be done from Tools/User Management. Your wireless security should be set at WPA2 if your laptop can handle WPA2. For added protection, you can enable "Mac Address" filtering by adding your laptops wireless Mac Address or physical address into the access list field. This option is located on the Wireless tab/Access list.

Darrell .... Thanks for helping me. This is what i done so far:
Changed pwd. Completed

1: Wireless Setup
Enable Wireless: check
Primary SSID: MIT
Hide SSID: check
Channel B/G: 11
802.11 Mode: Mixed

2: Advance: Left it as it was from default\

3: Security
Selected: WPA/WPA2 (from this point on im not sure what to do)
Enable WPA2 Pre-authentication: Not selected
Group Interval: 3600

At this point what should i select?
Radius Server or Pre-Shared Key

Also should i do something on the laptop first or do all the set up from my mail(cable conected) computer then work the settings on the laptop?

Your VT2542 is connected by ethernet to your desktop computer correct? First, setup everything on the desktop that's connected to the VT2542 and then we will proceed to the laptop.

Security: You can enable WPA2 Pre-authentication
Group Key Interval should be 3600
Preshared key is the option I 've chosen. This key that you create is case-sensitive so remember it exactly as you typed it in...We will need this key to setup the laptop to have access to the wireless.
You should change the "SSID" to something that you prefer instead of using the default "MOT" SSID. The SSID that you create is also case-sensitive so be sure to write it down exactly as you typed it in...it too will be needed to setup the laptop.

Darrell

It works. I got connected and the signal is strong and secure. I try to connect or find my network with a third computer(from my neightbor) and i wasn't able to connect or detect the signal.

Thank you. I really appreciate the time you took to help me. I learned something new.

Glad to hear you got it secured. From time to time, you may want to log-in to your device to make sure the security settings and any other settings, i.e. portforwarding, VPN settings or wireless Mac filtering that you may have configured are still intact. I say this because, if you ever have to reboot the device or if you have a temporary power outage, the VT2542 has shown the tendency to default back to it's original non-secure settings. Depending on who you talk to within Vonage support, this issue has been well documented...just search this forum on the VT2542 and you will see what I'm talking about. A new firmware version was suppose to be released to correct this issue, but as of yet, there has been no new firmware update. Besides this one very annoying defect, the VT2542 provides excellent voice-quality and dutifully supports all my routing needs.
