You don't need to install anything extra to secure the network. It's a matter of changing router settings. You set up the router through your web browser by going to "http://192.168.0.1" which accesses the device's setup screens.

There are several revisions of this product. Here is the URL for D-Link's selection page for the router:

http://support.dlink.com/products/revision.asp?productid=di-524

Click on the picture that shows the version you have, and then you'll be taken to the page for that version. You can download a manual or look through the FAQ's which will guide you through the process of setting up the security.

I moved my Dell desktop (which was attached to the router) to another room and am using a D-Link adapter. Now my laptop says "This computer is set to connect to "default" with security...


You need to launch web browser and enter "http://192.168.0.1" into the address bar. Then the logon screen will appear, type in the username and password and click ok. Configuration screen will open. On the left, you click on a Wireless option, then Security. Enable the security and save the changes

My internet connection via the router (d-link DI-524) have slowed down. how do i reset settings or put a password?


Maybe you have an open WiFi (no password wireless) and anyboby near can connect to your router and download files, this can slow down your Internet connection. To put a password to your wireless network, enter setup preferably by a wired connection to router, in your browser type the default IP address of it (http://192.168.0.1), the user is admin and its password must be left blank (default settings), at the Home tab go directly to Wireless option since you'll only change your WiFi from unsecure to secure, there you can choose the security type, WPA is recommended, after select it you can put the new Key (password) of your WiFi, and finally apply to get changes working, just remember that after this procedure, you'll have to enter the password in each new wireless connection to your router.

Is there any computer connected to the router ?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router with the wireless computer.
you will need to connect the computer to the router with the Ethernet cable.
check the IP address of the computer.
open the router set up page of the router.
Here you can change the wireless settings of the router.
Now once you change the network anme and security on the router, you will need to connect to the wireless network on your wireless computers.

New HP laptop will not connect to wireless secure network


Problem solved. I disabled the security on my network. I connected the new laptop to the unsecure network. I saved the settings on the laptop for the unsecure network. I rebooted the laptop. I re-enabled security on the router. I tried to connect to the network. I got an error on the laptop saying the network saved settings did not match. I modified the settings to a secure network on the laptop and saved the 128 bit key. Rebooted everything. All works fine now.

Disabled dhcp, cant access router with browser


the default ipaddress for that is 192.168.0.1 you will need to set your computer with a ip address like 192.168.0.2 then you should be able to access it. be sure to change your computer back to DHCP after you reset the router

Basically you want to enable wither WEP or WPA on your router and wireless network adapters. (this is a change to your router and each wirelessly attached computer.)

The following should hep locate the router manuals

See

http://www.dlink.com/products/support.as...

to determine the revision of your router and secure the manual for it.

the following link has several di-524 configuration emulators where you can preview the router configuration actions.

Please indicate what of this you have completed and information as to your router revision and wireless adapters to facilitate additional detail on the changes to achieve this goal.
