Re: I NEED TO SET UP MY SECURITY OM MY ROUTER MY SON...
These instructions will work on any windows computer version 2000 and up.
In order to secure your connection you need to gain access to your router's control panel. To do this we go to Start>Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt. From here type in: ipconfig Press ENTER to execute the command. A list should be returned listing some IP Address. Look for the one associated with, "Default Gatewaty."
Afterwardopen your Internet Browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc...) andtype the IP Address associated with the default gateway into theaddress field of the browser. DO NOT add www. or .com. Afterward pressENTER or click GO as if you wanted to visit a website.
Onceyou're at the control panel you will probably be asked to log in. Ifyou do not know your login details you can always try the default. Tofind these you can either search your router's user manual or head tothe online search enginesentering your router's manufacturer's name, the router's model #, andthe words, "default password" into the same search request to bring upthe default login credentials. For example:
If you still can't manage to log in to your router's control panel you will have to contact the technical support department of your router's manufacturer asking them for assistance in resetting the login user ID and password of the router.
Once you manage to log in to your router's control panel. Look for anything hinting Wireless security or Wireless settings. Once found look for the region which controls settings on wireless encryption. You will want to encrypt your wireless connection with the WPA-PSK authentication method using the TKIP encryption. If there is no such option, just use WPA encryption.
Afterward use a passphrase to make a wireless security password, or just make your own password. Make sure to write down the pass-phrase and/or the password as you will need it to connect to your wireless connection at a later time. After you save your settings in the router control-panel your Wireless Internet Connection should be secured.

The security for the wireless is set up on the device providing the wireless network. Im assuming its the WLI device? You will need to log into that device to setup the security on it. Feel free to comment back so i can assist you further!!
You need to log into the router setup screen - you do this by connecting a PC to the Router via a cable connection and then using Internet Explorer (IE) you log into the router.
Using the default settings
Open a web browser and enter http://192.168.0.1 and press Enter. When the login window appears, set the user name to admin and leave the password box empty. Click OK to continue.
Goto the Wireless security section to set the security type and the password
Section 4 of the manual - see below deals with setting the wireless security
This is the support site for that router http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=WBR-1310
Click on the Support Resources - that will take you to the manuals for different Version of that model - click on the model you have to get to the online manual
If available networks are found, it means that the wireless adapter is working just fine. In case of Wi-Fi, the device has to acquire an IP address from the wireless router and the mutual communication is not taking place. This has something to do with the wireless router. Check for any kind of security filtering like MAC address filtering or lower down the encryption technique to 64-bit WEP. Try connecting to even an unsecured network, then check for the automatically acquired IP address. It should never be starting with 169.254.xx.xx (Invalid) If you have other wireless computers going online in the same network, without security and filtering, then it means that your DS Lite is not acquiring an IP address. In that critical case, you may have to statically or manually assign an IP address in the range of the router. And lastly, as you said LAN connection is active, it would be because it doesn't face any hardships while connecting!
Thanks.. Do get back if you need further clarifications.
