You need to check if the SSID in enabled in the the settings To do this you have to type in the default IP address of the router in your address bar then type the user name and password normaly "admin and admin" go to the wireless section and check to see if the SSID is set to enabled

Cisco router does not broadcast

The wifi does not broadcast? Check in the setup page to make sure wifi is turned on and its setup to broadcast (It is possible to set it up to broadcast "invisibly" so strangers can't see the network and use your internet) RTFM

My old d-link router works fine. I bought a new DIR-615 but it won't connect. My computer won't "see" it. I followed all directions several times.

Make sure that the broadcast SSID in your router is enabled. Try setting it up again and make sure all necessary settings are set, or it might be the settings in your computer itself, let me know what type of computer you are currently using so i can check.

How do i secure my wireless router?

  • Accessing Your Wireless Router's Configuration.
    To gain access to your wireless router settings and configuration menu then connect to the router either wirelessly or via a Ethernet cable. Open a web browser and type either: or
  • 2 Change the Admin password.
    Most wireless routers ship with a blank password. It is essential that this is changed else a potential hacker could get into your router configuration and lock you out of your own hardware.
  • 3 Change The Network Name (otherwise known as the SSID).
    The default network name is usually made up of the name/model of your wireless router. This information gives a head start for a hacker and makes it easier for them to break into your network. Don't rename it to something like your surname or house name as this unnecessarily exposes personal information. Rename it to an alpha-numeric string - this can be up to 32 characters long.
  • 4 Turn off SSID broadcasting.
    By default, a wireless router's SSID is broadcast so anyone in the vicinity of your wireless router can see that it. SSID broadcasting can be turned off thus making your wireless router virtually invisible.
  • 5 Enabling Encryption.
    This is switched off by default. There is a choice of WEP, WPA and WPA2. Currently the latest encryption method is WPA2 so use this where possible. Both your wireless router and wireless PC adaptor must be configured to use the same encryption.
  • 6 Mac Address Control.
    All hardware has a unique MAC address associated with it, including your PC adaptor card. This MAC address can be added to access control list in the wireless router. Only devices added to the router's access control list are allowed to be connected.
  • 7 Update router firmware.
    It is recommended that the latest router firmware is downloaded from the manufacturer's website and installed in the router. This will hopefully fix any bugs that have been found for your router and also help with any known security flaws in the router itself.
  • 8 Backup settings.
    Finally, backup all router settings. If you reset the router back to its factory default settings for whatever reason, your configuration can later be easily and quickly restored back into the router.

    Hiya, Iv installed the wireless but the wireless network connection on my laptop is not connected and it says there is no wireless networks were found in range.

    Hmm... If your router seems to be operating like it should (it really doesn't even need an internet connection for the laptop to connect), and you just installed it, my guess would be that the SSID broadcast is disabled. You would have to log into your router and check the wireless section to see if it is. If so, you can leave it that way (which is actually what I would recommend, for security) and setup the network manually on your laptop, or enable the broadcast and connect it like you normally would. If you decide to leave it disabled, then you will need to make a network connection manually on your laptop. You will need to put in the SSID, WEP/WPA passkey (if you have one), and you will have to make sure that you have the option "connect even if this device is not broadcasting" checked. Once you do that, it should work. When your SSID isn't broadcasting, its making itself pretty much invisible to other devices. You can learn more about this here, if you wish.

    I just bought a belkin n1 wireless router at a thrift store. everything works but the wireless part. its all hardwired to my desktop, but my laptop won't pick up a signal from it.

    I would suggest going into the router itself at, and reset to the factory settings, or if you are familiar enough with router configuration, make sure your SSID is being broadcasted. Also, make sure you are currently using the up to date firmware.

    Also make sure you are using the correct security settings to connect up to the router once it's discovered under the "Available Wireless Networks".

    Motarola VT2542 Wireless Router: If you disable the wireless on the router's software does that stop the router from broadcasting rf frequency? I would like to use the router as a wired router without rf...

    Hi! It's ok to disable the wireless broadcast of the router however, it wont stop the router from broadcasting the wireless frequency. It will only hide itself from the people who are trying to connect to a free signal that are available.

    Router keeps losing its security settings

    Check for updated firmware on the belkin website. It may be a firmware issue that has been patched with that particular version.
