Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
I have a D-link DI-524 wireless router, I know how to hook it up and I am able to get into the screen to change the defaults (password, user name etc.) but the problem is when I encrypt the signal the default for the WEP is 0000000000. I don't know what I need to do to get past that section because once I encrypt the signal, I can find my new name for my network, but it says "unable to connect" to my own router. I have to go and reset my router to default settings, and then I find my router and am able to connect again. I need step by step help setting up this router encryption. I am using a macbook, and running 10.4 o/s. Thank you very much for your help!
Instead of using your WEP key say "Rosebud", use the hexadecimal value it creates instead. Enter it in all lower case. You should work find at that point.

It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below.
Things to set:
Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes.
1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.
2. Set a recognizable system ID.
3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.
a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.
4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.

hook up the router per instruction in manual and your particular internet connection. With the Di524 powered up, use the end of a paperclip to depress the reset button located in a little hole beside the power connection. open internet explorer and type in 192.168.0.1 and press enter. The password is admin. once th screen appears, click on Wizard. Follow the wizards directions carefully.
For simplicity of security click on the wireless button while in the wireless screen. Set radio to on. Enter a SSID like purplegarion. Set to open system. Set Security to WEP. Wep to HEX. 64bit. Enter into Key one a 10 digit number you can remember like 1234567890. Click apply. Change your password to a personal password other than ADMIN.
Any device that attaches will need to enter the WEP 64 Bit hex Security key 1234567890, or whatever 10 digit number you put in the router.
Internet connection will require powering down you modem, and the DI-524 router. power up the modem first and let it go through the start up, then power up thte DI 524. you may need to make sure your DHCP is set to Automatically assign an IP address.
