I want to secure an unsecured linksys router


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 to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

How do i apply security to my wireless connection .. it is set up and working well but is currently unsecured


All you have to do is connect to the router and secure the connection follow the following steps: -
First you have to access the router through web browser (Internet Explorer) by typing the IP address of your router in the address bar, which is 192.168.0.1 (Default router settings are written under the router) and lookup for the options to do the following: -
1. Change the SSID (Name) of the router
2. Change the default administrative user name and password (unless you've configured otherwise, the default username is admin and the password "leave it blank")
(The above step would prevent unauthorized access to your router)

Next step is to secure it:
1.On the left-hand side, under Setup, click "Wireless Setup" 2.Under "Wireless Security Mode", select your desired encryption method (preferably WPA2-PSK)
3.Choose a Network Key - it can be anything, as long as it's 8-63 characters in length
4. Click Save Settings.
In the screen shot below I have highlighted the above mentioned options.

Now your router and your connection would become secure and the user has to provide the network key to access the internet.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

My wireless network is currently unsecure. how do


If you have a PC connected to your router through an Ethernet cable (i.e. wired), make the changes through it, because, if you do it through a wireless device, you would loose access as soon as you set your wireless secturity parameters. Anyway, start a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer) and go to 'http://192.168.0.1' (this is the default IP address for this router. If you have changed it, replace it with yours). An authentication screen will come up, Enter 'admin' as 'User name', leave the 'Password' field empty, and click on 'OK'. The web interface will come up. Click on the 'Wireless' icon (on the left side of the screen) and the 'Home' tab. On 'WEP', click the 'Enabled' checkbox. On 'WEP Encryption', if you choose '64bit' you must enter exactly 5 characters as your wireless passphrase. Otherwise, if you choose '128bit' (more secure, of course), your wireless password must be exactly 13 characters long. To make it easier for your, select 'ASCII' under 'Key Type', and enter either your 5-char long or 13-char long passphrase under 'Key1' (make sure its checkbox is ticked). Then, click 'Apply' (the green icon with a check mark). Your router is now secured. Now, make these same changes (i.e. WEP encryption method and the passphrase you've chosen) on all devices (computers and/or smartphones), in order to allow them to connect to your router through Wi-Fi.
Hope it works for you.
Cheers! Carlos

My Router works only if I do not put security password on it.


The router works only if the network is unsecured.
When you secure the wireless network , make sure that you will change the wireless network name also. Because if you change the wireless security and if you keep the same network name then your computer will try to connect to the same network name with the old unsecured settings saved on the computer.
Try to change the SSID ( network name ) and security to WPA, check if that works.
If that doesn't work then I believe you will need to upgrade the FIRMWARE of the router.

D-Link DIR-625 - Unsecure connection


How do you know that you are connecting and there is no security? There first thing to check is the router settings. You should type into the browser 192.168.1.1 (or whatever you have configured your router's IP address for). Enter the user name and password for the router. On the next screen you will notice a link for wireless settings. Click this and on the new page check the bottom section that says "Wireless Security Mode". It should be set to something other than "none". Post back and let me know what it is set to.
