Question about D-Link DWL-G700AP 802.11g/b Wireless Access Point

1 Answer

Unable to secure wireless network.

I have a linksys WMP54G adapter with a D-Link DIR615 router.

I have tried to set it up using WEP, WPA-2, anything but when I do this, it cannot find the access point. However, it allows me to go unsecured network and I can easily access the internet. Of course this means everyone else can also access my network and internet in my range.

I uninstalled the linksys driver, reinstalled it, tried to set up my network again to no avail. I have hit the reset button on my D-Link Router about 45 times. I am lost, please help if you can.

Log onto the wifi router. set your ssid to whatever you want it to be and security to whatever p/w you want it to be. this will usually require a reboot. this will need to be done on the primary pc

if you only have one. connect it all physically as it should be. then do the above. disconnect the compuer from the ethernet cable and it should be a wa-la. hope this helps :)

Wireless security


I think you should upgrade the firmware on your router.
After upgrading the firmware reset the router and reconfigure it manually.
I will also suggest you to create a new wireless network and use security modem WPA.
Try to connect to the new wireless network and see if that works.

Ran the set up wizard for D link 200N wireless router completed successfully but afterwards my computer didn't recognize the network. I plugged the old Linksys B router back in and it worked fine.


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Hi just iwant to put security # or password on my d- link router so imean nobody can can get acsses to the internet. thanks


WPA is a strong form of wireless encryption, however not all wireless adapters support this feature. If your wireless adapter does not support WPA you will want to use WEP to secure your wireless network.

You can find information on configuring your WBR router for WEP here

Step 1: Open a web browser and type the IP address of the WBR series router into the address bar (default is http://192.168.0.1).

Step 2: The default username is admin (all lower case) and the default password is blank (nothing). Click on OK.

Step 3: Click on the Setup tab at the top and then click on Wireless Settings on the left-hand side.

Step 4: Select the type of WPA encryption you would like to use with your wireless adapter from the Security Mode drop down menu. For WPA-PSK select Enable WPA- Personal Wireless Security (enhanced).

Note: All wireless products on the wireless network must have the same level of security to connect to the network.

Step 5: In the WPA Personal section, configure the following:

  • Select the Cipher Type
  • Select the PSK or EAP
  • Enter your Passphrase
  • Re-Enter your Passphrase
Step 6: Click the Save Settings button to save your settings.

Select your Wireless Network Name or SSID then click Connect.

5449-005.png

NOTE:
If the wireless network name or your SSID is not listed, the SSID Broadcast on the router might be disabled. For instructions on how to connect to the wireless network with the SSID broadcast being disabled, click here.
If the computer is not detecting any signal or is not seeing any wireless network, change the channel of the router. For instructions, click here.
If WEP/WPA is enabled on the router:
Step 3:
Enter your wireless network WEP/WPA Key on the field provided then click Connect.
NOTE: To learn more about WEP/WPA and other Wireless Settings, click here.

5449-007.png



NOTE: Make sure Display characters is checked, to display the WEP/WPA key used by the router. You can get the passphrase or network key from the encryption that has been generated (if using WEP network security) from the router's web-based setup page. If you're using WPA network security, the network key is the key for passphrase.

Make sure you enter the wireless network's WEP or WPA key not the Passphrase.

It is also possible to make a wireless connection even if the wireless security is disabled on your router. If you don't see any network SSID from your network list, make sure your wireless adapter/device is ON and your router is in good condition. If your router shows any unstable occurrence, click here.

Is the PIN on the bottom of the router the same as the WEP or WPA?


WEP or WPA are the types of wireless security. If your wireless network is secured then there will be a password on the network that is called as wireless network key or passphrase ( WEP or WPA key ). PIN number is different than WEP or WPA.
To check the wireless network key ( WEP / WPA) you will need to access the router settings page.
On that page , you will find all the settings of the router.

I'm having a problem setting up my linksys wireless router. My computer sees the connection but will not connect to it? I've tried the repair option and tried to add a network with out any luck.


As i remember Linksys goes with Straight Through Ethernet cable. Always, good thing is to connect your computer to Wireless Router using LAN port. Set DHCP (Automatic) connection for your computer. After receiving ip from router you can setup your Wireless Router using GUI, and setup your Wireless Network, SSID/Security. From adapter to adapter there can be some misc problem with WEP/WPA/WPA2 and so on, so it maybe your issue, or OS blocking connection to Wireless Networks without security.

How do I put an encryption on my linksys router?


Securing your wireless network is a simple process, which generally does not require a lot of time. This can be done by:
  • Enabling WEP or WPA on the Router
  • Enabling Wireless MAC filter on the Router
  • Disabling SSID Broadcast on the Router
NOTE: The wireless security modes available may vary depending on the model of the router and wireless adapter you are using.
Enabling WEP on the Router
Wired Equivalent Protocol (WEP) is a type of wirelesssecurity which does not change. It provides comparable confidentialityto a traditional wired network. There are two types of WEP you canchoose from:
a. WEP 64-bit: This type of WEP consists of 10-hexadecimal codes. To enable WEP 64-bit, click here.
b. WEP 128-bit:This type of WEP consists of 26-hexadecimal codes hence it is moresecured compared to WEP 64-bit. To enable WEP 128-bit, click here.
Enabling WPA on the Router
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is a type of wireless securitywhich is dynamic in nature. Meaning, it changes depending on the timerenewal you will specify. Hence, WPA is more secured compared to WEP.
  • Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (WPA-TKIP) – utilizes a stronger encryption method and incorporates Message Integrity Code (MIC) to provide protection against hackers.
  • Advanced Encryption System (WPA-AES) – utilizes a symmetric 128-bit block data encryption
To enable WPA, click here.
Enabling Wireless MAC Filter on the Router
Wireless access can be filtered using the MAC address of thewireless devices transmitting within your network’s radius. You caneither permit or prevent specific wireless computers access to yourwireless network.
To permit wireless computers to connect to your wireless network, click here.
To prevent wireless computers to connect to your wireless network, click here.
Disabling SSID Broadcast on the Router
Disabling the SSID broadcast is one way of securing your wirelessnetwork. This procedure will prevent other users from detecting yourSSID, or your wireless network name, when they attempt to viewavailable wireless networks in your area. For instructions, click here.

Security Keys or Passphrase


  1. Now we will secure you wireless connection to prevent others from connecting. Under the Home tab, click the Wireless option from the left.
  2. Beside the SSID option, enter the name for your wireless network connection.
  3. Beside Security, select WPA. If you can’t connect using WPA, then select WEP. Using WPA will provide a much more secure connection that using WEP. For more information about WEP and WPA please read Wireless Security: WEP and WPA.
  4. Click AES beside the Cypher Type.
  5. Make sure PSK is selected beside PSK/EAP.
  6. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long Passphrase with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Once again, please read Creating Secure Passwords for tips on how to do this. In this case the longer the better. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  7. Enter your passphrase next to Passphrase and again beside Confirmed Passphrase.
  8. Click Apply to save your security settings.
  9. Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your Passphrase exactly as you specified it. I won’t go into detail on how to connect to your wireless network, as I will save that for another post.
