Refer to the users guide.  There will be a reset switch on the router.  This will reset all the settings to their original manufacture settings.

Its saying enter network key

When you connect to your secured WirelessNetwork, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connectinto your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, orWPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphraseis an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.

I put in the wrong password while setting up my new wireless router and now the green lock w/signal button stays lite and it seems to be locked. How do I unlock it?

that symble means that your wireless signal is secure with either wep or wpa-psk or wpa2-psk.that means you have a passphrase set for the wireless part of your router.unless you mean that you put the wrong login password ,either way if you forgot either 1 you can always reset the router to factory specs by pressing the little button in the hole of the router most likely on the back,just use a tooth pick or something nonmetalic to press it in for 30 sec. or till it restarts.Then you will have to reset all of your settings in your router including the passphrase and is best to do all the settings from a connected lan cable and not wireless to start,and you can set everything else up from the same too.

go to wireless settings and you will fing the wireless key
enter that key in you IPOD and you will be able to connect
That is a secured wireless connection that is why you get a lock like sign

My D-Link DIR-615 wireless router shows that it is locked. How do I unlock it?

Connect to the router using an ethernet cable, if possible. Worst case connect wirelessly. You need the following for either:

IP Address
User Name Admin
Password should be blank.

Hope that helps
