Wireless Internet is supplied to your house through what is called a wireless router. This device makes a wireless network available within a limited range to which devices can be connected so that they can access the Internet wirelessly. This network can either be protected, or open. An open network means that anyone who is within range of your network can connect and use your Internet service, whereas a protected network would require a password to connect.
Shaw wireless devices are automatically setup with a password, and therefore are already protected. This document will show you where to find information about changing your pre-set wireless password on your Shaw wireless device, or alternatively how to setup a wireless password on your third party wireless router.

Shaw wireless devices come pre-setup with a wireless password. This password can be found on the white sticker on the top of your device.

Third party wireless routers do not necessarily come pre-setup with a wireless password. In many instances, the routers are left "open" so that anyone can connect to them. You can setup a wireless password on your third party router by following the support documentation available from the manufacturer of your device.
