Configuring WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK Wireless Security
Wi-Fi Protected Access with Pre-Shared Key (WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK) data encryption
provides extremely strong data security, very effectively blocking eavesdropping. Because WPA
and WPA2 are relatively new standards, older wireless adapters and devices might not support
them. Check whether newer drivers are available from the manufacturer.

Log into the router using the IP address supplied in the belkin router owners manual.

To configure WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, or WPA-PSK+WPA2-PSK:
1. Select Wireless Settings under Setup in the main menu. The Wireless Settings screen
displays.
2. Select one of the WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK options for the security type. The third option
(WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WP2-PSK [AES]) is the most flexible, since it allows clients using
either WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK.
3. In the Passphrase field, enter a word or group of 863 printable characters. The passphrase is
case-sensitive.
Once that is set, go to next step below.

You need to use the same passphrase on the computer that is attempting to access the wireless network.
Scan for the SSID broadcast Name of the router, try to connect and it should ask you for the WPA passphrase.
You have to type it exactly as it was entered into the routers WPA security settings, this is VERY case sensitive.

Once the passphrase is correctly entered, you should now be allowed access to the wireless network.

I have a Belkin router. I can go to my wireless security, there is a place for a check to show the pass phrase. That's what she needs to type in.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
