Want to Password Protect My Wifi
« on: January 03, 2013, 12:43:07 PM »

Hi.  I have used the WBR-1310 for about a year now without a password.  I recently moved and would like to include a password.  Please provide steps on how to do this on an Apple.  I am not the best with technology so simple steps are greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
