Yes.

Enable encryption, found on the wireless security settings tab.

You will also need to set up encryption on your wireless devices, such as other laptops, Wii, etc.

The Manual, which can be downloaded from Linksys (assuming a Linksys router) gives complete instructions.

SET UP PASSWORD


Log in to the router's administrative console through a Web browser using the current password and username.

In the router's administrative console, navigate to the appropriate administration / security section where the password setting can be changed. In this example, the Administration tab at the top of the screen contains the Linksys router's password setting.

Choose a suitable password based on the standard guidelines for strong password security. Enter the new password in the Password box, and re-enter the same password a second time in the space provided. Entering the password a second time ensures you did not accidentally type in the wrong password the first time.

The password change is not applied on the router until you save or confirm the change. In this example, click the Save Settings button at the bottom of the page to have the new password take effect. You will see a confirmation window appear briefly to confirm the password change was made successfully. The new password takes effect immediately; rebooting the router is not required.

Neighbor stealing from my Belkin internet connection.


Reinstall the software and set the router up again with yourself as the administrator and also set it up as a secured connection. It will walk you through the process screen to screen. You will then get him off of your network.

How to change password


to change the password, assuming you have not changed the default administration passwords point your browser to "192.168.1.1" Once there you should have a login screen. linksys default is "administrator" AND "admin" as the username and password. Here you should have access to the full control panel. You can change the wireless password as well as any other settings.

I have a wireless laptop and my new router wants a pin number before ir conects were can i find the pin number my router is a linksys g wireless adsl2+gateway


pin number or password. the password for the router for administration is admin and admin.... for security you may wish to change them. the pin number is likely for connecting to a secure network. it may actually be on a label on your router or you need to sign into your router to obtain it. first you need to hook into the router with a network cable from your computer to the router. open a web browser and type 192.168.1.1 the hopefully the default password wasn't changed (or you know it) once you have signed in find the tab for wireless security. your code/pin should be in the second tab of the submenu

We have a guest at our home who wants to use her computer. When she tries to log on it says she needs a password. When I use my laptop there is no pasword request, I just go straight onto the internet?...


Hello!
It could be that your wireless router has security enabled and doesn't allow "strangers" to connect to the network in your home.

If you can't recall a specific password you might've used to set up the router, try going to the Administrator page and see if the password is there.

I'm not familiar with the DI-514 specifically, but generally you can go to a computer that connects to your network properly, open a web browser and type 192.168.0.1 in the URL box. That's a generic IP address that many wireless routers use. If that doesn't work, try 192.168.1.1. This will take you to an administrator screen. If neither of these work, you'll need to check your manual (Dl-514 Manual) for the correct way to get to the Administrator screen.

When you get to the Admin screen, you enter the user name and password of the administrator for the wireless router. Unless you changed the user name and password when you set the router up, it should be "admin" and the password is empty.

Again, I'm not familiar with the DI-514 specifically, but you can then look around at security and/or password settings to see what the password might be.

In some cases you might have a specific type of security set up on your router like something called "WPA". If this is the case look around for a "key". This key will be a bunch of letters and numbers, and it will need to be entered exactly the same way (cap letters and all) into your guests' computer when asked.

Good luck! Remember to rate the solutions!
