Could you please tell me how to secure my wireless connection. On previous sites it tells me to input the IP address onto the search column. This I had to look for so after pressing start, run, CMD ...my IP address showed 192.168.0.187.
I then opened up a new explorer page, put that IP address in the address bar, I pressed enter but the page did not open to what I expected(it showed other internet sites to go on). I also tried 192.168.01 but the site shows "busy" . I also tried 192.168.02 but no joy.
I have a pc and laptop, plus a telewest modem
please help, thanks
In securint your wireless security try accessing the configuration page of the router. go the the window where you created your wireless netowrk connection.
On that Wireless window choose WEP for security. By defaut WEP Encryption is 64bit. Under Key1 erase what's on the box and type in the password for your wirelss network. It should be exactly 10 characters, You could use 0 to 9 or A to F then click on Apply >next. Try Accessing your wireless networ.

It sounds like you are trying to connect to the D-link and either you are not connected to the internet or you are connected to another network. Be sure that if you are making a wireless connection that you have selected the 'dlink' (the usual default) or whatever the name of the network (SSID) that is being broadcast by the D-link. Once you are on the same network as the D-link router, then you may navigate to the 192.168.0.1.
Just for fun, make the router give out IP addresses starting at 192.168.0.101 forward. Configure the AP at 192.168.0.2 with no DHCP (the host will give out the addresses), a netmask of 255.255.255.0, and a gateway of 192.168.0.1. Now, let the laptop find DHCP, or give it a 192.168.0.x address where x is greater than 2 but less than 101.
The router should assign an IP address to your PS3 if it isn't manually configured. If you are connecting wirelessly make sure your security setting on your PS3 match your router. If the problem persists disable wireless security on your router and then try to connect with the PS3 with security disabled as well. Sometimes consoles have trouble connecting with WEP or WPA security encryption.
Check first the cables and connections, and the broadband filter.
You need to connect through cable to configure the router.
To access the router panel you need to input the router IP address on Internet explorer bar.
default IP is http://192.168.0.1
If IP is not default, you find out IP by opening the command prompt from start menu>>all programs>>accessories>>system tools (that kind of dos mode). On command prompt type ipconfig/all. The default gateway is router IP.
On the router access panel default settings are :
User Admin Password leave blank
See all procedures on manual below.
Copy and paste the address below on your browser address bar.
One of your neighbors may have changed it for you, but you have the hardware, just reset it, and get a LONG cable to it, as you only get problems trying to set the Router with the wireless connection.
After resetting to factory default,
Change admin password
Set wireless security:
Wikreless/Wireless MAC filter.
- here you allow witch MAC address is allowed to access your network.
you find your own MAC address by typing ipconfig /all in a cmd.
You need to cascade the Dlink wireless router to your RV042.
Suppose your RV042 has a default IP Address of 192.168.1.1, and the DLINK IP uses 192.168.0.1. Your Physical connection is from the regular port of the RV042 going to the WAN/Internet Port of the DLink wireless router.
Once you do that, your Dlink router should automatically obtain an IP from the main router. If it did, configure your wireless settings and you should be able to connect via wireless.
This is just one way to cascade your router to another router.
For more information, click here.
The issue may be due to the existence of two (2) DHCP servers; 1 in the Cisco 675 and the 2nd in the DLink DI-524. You need to disable the Cisco's DHCP server function and assign static IP add & config to the DLink WAN config. This way it will only be the DLink handing out IP adds to the network.
The workaround. Install your original configuration/setting without the DLink DI-524 - PC direct to the Cisco 675 (I am assuming through Ethernet ports). Verify that indeed you are connected to the Internet and can surf the net, check e-mails, etc. Check your Networking Connection Status. Log down your PC's IP Add, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS. For purposes of discussion, let's call this "N1".
After your Internet connection has been verified with your PC directly connected to the Cisco, remove the direct connection and connect the DLink DI-524 in between the Cisco router and your PC.
Log in to the DLink and modify WAN parameters using the "N1" configurations/settings.
It might be of help to disable any security (WEP WPA, MAC etc) at least while configuring.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
just had same prob if you go to dlink site in phillipines there you will find the latest firmware for dlink 524 . i couldnt belive i had to do this as all links to uk site had no pages diplayed .i went first to .singapore site then to australia but the most uptodate firmware i found was on phillipines site
I have not tried it myself with DLink but with LinkSys, yes it will work. It may take a little configuration tinkering but should work. However a few notes:
1. You should only have 1 DHCP server (both have this feature);
2. You can not have 2 identical IP address;
3. I suggest you make the 524 as the gateway and the 704 as a slave;
4. In effect you will connect 1 of the LAN port of the 524 to the WAN input of the 704;
5. You have to copy the WAN settings of the 704 to the WAN settings of the 524;
6. Or if you want to retain the 704 as the gateway, disable the identical features in the 524. I suggest you treat the 524 as a client of the 704.
Hope this gives you some idea and work out for you as it did with my LinkSys. Goodluck and kind regards.
