Re: I cant get into the settings for my Dynamode wireless...
Reset the router to factory default, this way you can put in a new password and WEP. **On the vast majority of routers the reset button is found either on the back plate or on the underside of the router. The reset button is on the rear of your router
**The reset button is YES! a TINY tiny little hole no bigger than a pencil point or full stop. You can easily miss it, to perform a reset you will need a paper clip or pin.
TO RESET, using the paper clip straightened out, push the end of the paper clip into the tiny hole, and push it firmly until you feel a resistance. hold the paper clip, & push & hold in the reset button for 20 -25 seconds (with the power turned on). after you have done this power off and power back on the router.
Now! the router should have all its original factory default settings, as if you just took it out of the box for the first time:so you should be able to get to the setup page and set the WEP encryption. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, you need to at least configure the wireless router with encryption, and the SSID, and change the router's default login password.
Please follow these instructions :-
To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: - 1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable. 2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address. 3. Enter the router setup, login and password 4. Change the admin password 5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast. 6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA). The encryption key can be easily set up using a passphrase (it can be an alpha numeric phrase or words). 7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router. 8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings. 9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router. 10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly. To access the Internet you need to connect the DSL or cable modem to the WAN (Internet) port on the wireless router.
The nework cable that came with the wireless router has RJ45 connectors (8 wire cable) and the telephone cable has narrower connectors RJ11 (4 wire cable) or RJ12 (6 wire cable - less commonly used).
I assume the Dynamode wireless router does not have a built-in modem and therefore needs to be connected to a broadband modem.
If broadband modem is a cable or DSL type, the broadband modem is connected to the Dynamode WAN/Internet socket with a RJ45 LAN cable.
If you have a broadband DSL modem you need a RJ11 phone cable to connect the moden to the phone socket.
To improve wireless signal from your wireless router you can try changing the wireless channel of it from the router setup page, set the wireless channel to the highest one so it will avoid interferences on your location........
hullo open up you Linksys user inaterface click on the wireless tab then security then go to the field called WPA SHARED KEY then type your password to secure you wireless connection. Dont forget to save the settings. Best of Luck.
Cable modems and routers must be turned on in a specific way.
First, unplug both the router and modem. Next, plug the ethernet cable from the modem, into the cable router, and unplug the cable from the modem to the computer.
Next, turn on the modem, and wait for all of the lights to stay static (usually there's 4 lights, the main one we're interested in, is the status light).
Next, plug in and turn on your router.
You should now be able to access the router and configure it for your internet connection.
