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!

I want to secure my network


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya.

If you want to setup a password or security on your router you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.0.1, the Default username is admin and the password is blank. Go to the Wireless Settings and under Security Mode you'll find the Network Key or Passphrase. You can personalize you Network Key or Passphrase to make it secure.

Don't Forget to say Thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

How to secure my di 624 router?


You need to log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) into the Address (or URL) line. The default usernameand password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved.
Let me know how you make out.

You don't need any software, no. All you need to do is login to the router (usually 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1 for D-link) and configure the wireless security (including the key)).
