Question about Computers & Internet
Sounds to me that you have not setup your security. If you bought the router or even if it was setup by your service provider the security is not setup automatically and the installers are not going to set up your security for you because that is not a good way to keep your privacy. You need to lock the router to the host computer with a password for starters. The following is for the default settings, OK. #1 Set your network card to obtain an address automatically for now. #2 Type the routers address in the address bar on your browser 192.168.0.1 #3 If all goes well you will get a small window pop up asking for username and password, factory setting is usually admin and the password leave blank and press OK or ENTER. You should now see your routers web page. If this fails you should try asking the service provider what they use for the default password and username. example- Telus will use telus or Shaw will use shaw as the passwords. admin is typically used for default username. Once you get to the routers web page go to the security tab and get your security setup. The D-link has help buttons on any page you visit in your routers webpages for information that you need to set up your security.
NOTE: Before setting any security you should go to the password page and setup your personal password for the router instead of the factory setting of blank or what ever the default password is.This is your first and most important line of defence so get a small notebook and keep a record of your password. You want a password that is as complicated as you can, personally I will use the greek language for my passwords because it is one of the toughest to crack because of the symbols used. Not to many routers will let you use greek but some will. Just make it hard for anyone to figure out because that password is what will keep your security settings safe. I am amazed by how many people do not set their security. Ounce you get it setup the people who usually use your signal will move on and use your neighbors signal that has no security.
