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:

ftp://files.dlink.com.au/products/DSL-G604T-GenII/Manuals/DSL-G604T_GenII_Manual_v1.11.pdf

if you want further details. Good luck with your secure network.

    You might need to COPY the address of the manual into your browser rather than just clicking on it.

    Response to Guest question: On the HOME page, tick the "Enable AP" option near the top of the page. Also, make sure you select the "APPLY" button when you have entered your WEP or WPA key. The "Authentication Type" setting can be "Open" and still have a secure network: If "open" it means that only devices with the same WEP key can communicate through your network, but the access point will be visible as a device on your network. The WEP key is used to encrypt the network traffic, so I guess a network hacker could see the traffic but it would be encrypted.

    ALSO, I suggest you change the SSID to a word that you will recognise (NOTE IT DOWN), so that you are not confusing someone else's network as your own.

    Suggest you start with WEP security and get things going before trying WPA. Get a cup of tea, and take it from the top.

Common with single antenna routers and adsl/router boxes, i use a zoom x6 adsl with wireless and i was having similar problems , it also has a single antenna so i disabled its wireless feature and got a linksys rangebooster router dedicated to my wireless needs, has good range and its durable, Im basically suggesting that you get another wireless router with dual antennae and use that for your wireless needs, hook that up to your DLINK modem via ethernet cable and disable the dlink's wireless feature...Hope this helps..
