Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
I have an old computer that connects (wireless) to the internet through my D1-524 router and modem. I got another computer, and I cannot get a wireless connection from the same location as the old computer. When I try to connect, it asks for a network key (either WRP or WEA, if I remember correctly). How do I get such a network key?
You have enabled wep/wpa protection this is the password you need to enter.its the same as the working computerRICHARDM69

It's a DI-524 (Dee-eye). You created the network key, which is a fine thing. If you've lost track of it, you'll have to reset it to something else -- and then program both of your computers to connect with the new key.
You can probably get to the router here:
If you can log in, you can then click Wireless. Click WPA-PSK.
Pick a passphrase. You can use a sentence, even, something easy to remember, something easy to play with. Write it down and TAPE IT TO THE ROUTER, not over ventilation holes, so you never lose it again.
A good passphrase might be something that includes punctuation and isn't a common expression. You get 63 characters. Something like this might work, to give you an idea:
I hate that I lost the password, but life goes on.
Type it twice, carefully.
Then you'll have to tell both the previously working computer the password, as well as the new one.
And -write that down-. It's not the worst idea to put type everything useful (that http://192.168.0.1 address, your administration username and password, and your wireless password) into a Wordpad document, make the type very small, and print that, cut it out and tape it, being sure not to block any air holes.
