Question about D-Link Wireless
Does the 30 second reset also reset the "security key/pass phrase" as well?
Yes, it will set it all back to factory defaults
to set the security again on the router Support site for D-Link is here http://www.dlink.com/corporate/worldwideoffices/?redirect=/default.aspx In principle: Connect your PC to the router with a cable to one of the LAN connections - Now you need to Log into the setup of the router - to do that open a web browser, use Internet explorer (some routers setup pages do not work correctly with other browsers) In the browser address bar - http://192.168.0.1 Enter (admin) for the user name and also for the password. Now you can goto the wireless section or secruity section and set the type of encyption to WEP, WPA, WPA-PSK etc and then make up your own password
On the PC Double click on the wireless connection in the system tray (bottom right hand side of screen) and then connect manually to your wireless signal - you will be asked for the password you set in the router.
Now you are connected.
You may need to remove any old wireless profiles you have on the PC/Laptops
