Question about D-Link DSL-G604T Wireless Router
I've had my router for many years. Although I live in a rural location, the time has come for me to set WPA security. First, I successfully updated firmware from the D-Link site. Then I used IE to log in to my D-Link Control Panel and selected Setup>Wireless>Enable IP>Security>WPA>PSK String to set a password, then Apply. On turning on my Nexus 7, not only does it find the signal from the D-Link, but it states that there is still no security. What am I doing wrong?

SOURCE: enable WPA-PSK
Step 1 Log into the web-based configuration by opening up a web browser and typing in the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1). Step 2 The default username is admin (all lower case) and the password is blank (nothing). Click OK. Step 3 Click on the Home tab and then click Wireless on the left hand side. Step 4 Select WPA-PSK using the radio buttons. Step 5 Enter a key (passphrase). The key is an alpha-numeric password between 8 and 63 characters long. The password can include symbols (!?*&_) and spaces. Make sure you enter this key exactly the same on all other wireless clients. Step 6 Click on the Apply button then click on the Continue button to save your settings. Note: If you are configuring your router from a wireless adapter, you will lose connectivity as soon as you click Apply. You must enable WPA-PSK on your adapter and enter the same exact passphrase as you entered on your router.

SOURCE: I cannot get in to 192.168.0.1
http://192.168.0.1 is the default setting
if there is no response at all, the setting has been changed, the available addresses are in the range 192.168.*.* hunt for it, it is a security function, but sucks when nobody remembers what it was changed to.
If there is a password screen, enter the password.
If niether can be remembered, the router can be returned to 'out of the box' by the reset hole on the port side. then all the settings re-entered

Firstly, confirm that your ISP connection for email and internet is working correctly. Then connect the router to the ISP using the ADSL plug, and to your computer using the ethernet connection. It is best to set up your router using a wired connection to your computer. Once set up, you can connect your computer using WiFi. Have your ISP username and password handy.
There are two steps to secure your router:
1. Change your ADMIN password. Using a web browser like Intenet Explorer, type in the address, http://10.1.1.1. This should take you to a sign-on screen. Username is "admin", and password is set at the factory as "admin". You should now be logged in to your router. Go to the TOOLS tab, and change your admin password. NOTE THIS DOWN FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
2. Secure the wireless part of the network: Go to the HOME tab, and select either WEP security (good) or WPA security (better, but some devices like printers don't like this).
For WEP you will need to enter a 10-digit WEP key. Numerals will do, or you can use hexadecimal (base 16) notation if you know this. Numerals will do and are no less secure. NOTE THIS DOWN in a secure place. Click the "APPLY" button.
For the WPA alternative, you should select the "Pre-shared Key" radio button, and code in your WPA password in the "PSK String" field. This can be a word and or numerals. I don't think spaces or other characters are allowed. NOTE THIS DOWN in a secure place. Click the "APPLY" button.
That's IT!! You've changed the admin password and secured the wireless part of the network.
You will then need to code the WEP or WPA password into the devices like printers and computers that you want to connect to the WiFi. For Vista computers, right click on the network icon in the tray (two little computers overlapping) and select "Connect to a network". Enter the WEP or WPA password when you see SSID "default" or your SSID if you've changed it. Most printers have a connection wizard.
There is a further enhancement if you are really paranoid: change the SSID and turn off the SSID broadcast. Go to the manual at:
if you want further details. Good luck with your secure network.
