i need to do this :
Secure your wireless router Secure your wireless router by enabling WPA encryption. Encryption scrambles your data so that Intruders can't access it. Visit the router manufacturer's website or refer to the router's documentation to learn how to enable and configure WPA encryption for your devices—and make sure you choose a password (key) that is difficult for others to guess.
Open your router's configuration page to enable WPA encryption now.
Protect other PCs Protect the other PCs on your network with your McAfee software. To do so, go to a PC you want to protect, log in, and then download and install your McAfee software.

According to the manual that i have, the model if the router that you have, DX-E401, is just a broadband router and doesn't have wireless capability. if that would be the correct model of your device, there's no way that you can enable the wireless encryption since it doesn't have wireless capability. but if you are really using a wireless dynex router, follow the steps below on how to access the router's page and enable the security.

access the router's setup page by typing http://192.168.0.1 on the address bar of your web browser (i.e. internet explorer, firefox etc). by default the username is admin, then leave the password blank.
you will be prompted with the router's page, now go to the wireless settings and look for the encryption field and enbale wpa from there.

if you are not sure whether your router has wireless capability or if you are using another wireless router just give me the exact model and brand then ask me

ciao!

Security settings


Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption (security).
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

I would like to set up a password for my router.


Link to user guidehttp://homedownloads.cisco.com/downloads/userguide/WRT54G_UG_WEB_20070529.pdf

Page 9 Descripts setting the wireless secuirty. Make sure you do WPA2 with PSK this is the most secure.
Page 17 Administration > Management describes changing the the router management password. Also a very good idea. Change it to HTTPS only and disable remote management (Via wireless) This will ensure the management configuration is encryted and only accessable via a local lan connection.
Comment if you have additional questions and please rate the solution if you found it helpful.

Looking to hook up wirelees router


You should have one plug that is marked WAN - this connects to your modem with a standard Ethernet cable. If you cannot read the labels, it will be the plug, slightly removed from the other four plugs.

You need to connect the power adapter to a power strip to avoid unnecessary power entering your network and to protect the router.

You should be able to start the router without a PC attached. Just look for Dynex being broadcast wirelessly. Your network is not secure wirelessly until you add a password to the network.

See if you can get to fixya.com from your laptop. If so, things are going pretty well. You now want to add security to the wireless network.

Write back if you need help.

Can  Dynex 4 Port Router DX-E402 be used to connect internet on a notebook without using cable to notebook?? i.e. Can it be used like a wireless g router??


Unfortunately, the DX-E402 is not a wireless router, so it can not transmit its signal without a physical cable connecting the router to your computer. If you want a wireless router that can also connect to your ISP, check out the Dynex Enhanced Wireless G Router:

Siemens router & Dynex adapter


Double check if there is any wireless security enabled in your router. Verify if the type of security enabled in your router is already supported by your wireless adapter. If the wireless security enabled in your router is not supported by your adapter, change the security to something that will work with your adapter.

Try connecting your computer with dynex Wireless G USB to different wireless network for further isolation.
