    am having enormous difficulties with installing my router. It was initially working and I could access the network from my hp lap top but it was unsecured. I was trying to secure it and that is when all hell has let loss. I followed the instructions from the manual on configuring a WEP and then my lab tops are then unable to connect to the router. I know I need to do something to the lap tops so as to connect to the now secure router but do no know how.
    Please help.

    Ok, you have enabled WEP on your wireless network.
    When connecting your computer should ask for the WEP password/key, does it?

    If so, did you turn on mac access control?

    Have you successfully connected your laptop to other WEP enabled networks?

How do we secure our Wireless router Up until we have been using a cable router and now wish to use a DSL-G604T model which is up and running but in an unsecured mode.


1. Navigate to router's web interface<br /> 2. Login, click to Wireless button<br /> 3. Select WPA radio button as Security<br /> 4. Select Pre-Shared Key radio button and type some password to PSK String field<br /> 5. Click Apply button<br /> 6. To save and reboot the Router, click on the Tools directory tab and then click the System button. In the System<br />Settings window, click the Save and Reboot button under Save Settings and Reboot the System<br /> <br /> DSL-G604T doesn't have built in MAC access list and may hang on heavy usage. To optimize it for stable and safe connection use Router Commander program from <a href="http://www.routercommander.com">http://www.routercommander.com</a>, with it this router shows very good <span style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-fareast-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-ansi-language: EN-US; mso-fareast-language: EN-US; mso-bidi-language: HE">performance </span>and stable internet connection.

My Router works only if I do not put security password on it.


The router works only if the network is unsecured.
When you secure the wireless network , make sure that you will change the wireless network name also. Because if you change the wireless security and if you keep the same network name then your computer will try to connect to the same network name with the old unsecured settings saved on the computer.
Try to change the SSID ( network name ) and security to WPA, check if that works.
If that doesn't work then I believe you will need to upgrade the FIRMWARE of the router.
