Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
Default works fine and system is functional but not secure
Open a browser and type 192.168.0.1
Type in “admin” for the username and press "Enter".
Click "Home", click "wireless" (in the left panel)
Change your SSID to your liking. Do not use anything in the name that gives you away, like "LINKSYShome" or "Bob<House#>"...anything like "please try to hack me!" - you get me.
The DI 624 offers only WEP encryption in 64 and 128 bit, which is easy to crack (just google it!) and might give you a false sense of security. Nevertheless it is better than nothing and prevents someone accidental using your network, but you should choose a 128-bit-key and use random characters.
(128 bits divided by 8 bits per byte = 16 bytes. Minus 3 bytes used as "initialization vector" leaves you 13 bytes as key length.)
This key you can copy into a text file and copy it into the Network key settings, when you connect your computer. (Saves you from typo frustration...;-)
Don''t forget to save your changes!
Please let me know if this worked for you!
