I assume that you have at least a PC or laptop with MS Windows XP SP2 or Vista running.

Use the create a network key for the security of your network. You must name the network and then create a password for it. Also use WEP if your OS has it. Goto 'Network/ Internet' from the Control Panel ........

Alternative is to only allow listed MAC address connection access.
All net devices have an unique MAC address which can be listed in your access point.

How do I make my Dlink wireless router secure

There are several methods for "Securing" your router. I'll answer in general first, and if you need more info, just ask. Here are the top three methods to make your Router "Secure":
1. Create a Password for the ADMIN access to your router. This ensures that no one can get to your router through your IP address, and make changes (like adding their own computer to your DHCP Table). Be sure and record this somewhere safe.
2. Along with this password, Create a "Passphrase/Security Code", and install this code in your Router's Wireless Settings. I recommend sixteen digits, mixed alpha and numeric (recommend using lower case alpha only).
3. Create a Table of TCP IP addresses which emcompasses ALL the devices you will be allowing access to this router. For added security, make your range OUTSIDE the default range. Example: to That would give you Five devices, and ONLY those five devices could connect (this is your own situation). Then set the "Number of Devices" to just "5".
4. There's actually a fourth step called "Locking it Down" to those devices ... but first get to the point where you can actually SEE these devices connected within the router's DHCP Table. GOOD LUCK!

Your wireless network must be secured
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
Is there any computer online using the router.
check the IP address on that computer.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.

I want to use my router only to extend my signal how must i set it up on my intellinet wireless

what signal is low the sender or receiver???
I assume you have a wireless device thats receiving a low signal,ie wireless Laptop or wireless desktop or PS3 ,cellphone or Media Player

The spec for your unit will be on the manufacters site free to veiw
search your model and make,manuals for set up and drivers in download area on their site too.

Im not sure what brand and make you have so to check
turn it over and check the model is on a sticker on the bottom,normally.

make sure all devices can see the signal send and receive
your could check all ip address on the wireless network too
making sure theyre on the same sub net as
the wireless devices',ip address

depending on the model of the wireless and the operating system its being used with ie,networking home versus an internet cafe
average distance for a home is around 30 to 50 metres and this is depends on what he construction of the area its being used in.
wooden home or steel whare house may have interference issues that may be resolved easily by some good careful planning,installing in a good genral location to cover all areas intending on required coverage area.A good security function is essential in every network both public and private so be sure to take care there too,

make sure your machine devices have had updates to accomodate the wireless devices,etc,

If you need more help please ask away,MISTERDJ
