Please call dlink tech support at 877-453-5465. just an advise on how to handle the call when you reach dlink tech support (agent); do not agree to call back after you troubleshoot with them (they'll be giving you a case id reference# and be advising you to check your pc or call "who" and call them back to continue the troubleshooting). insist to the agent that he need to resolve the problem asap (by the way, agents are not allowed to drop the call or they'll be dead-history!). and if the agent still insisted you to call back, ask for a "senior level technician" to finish the job (escalate the problem).
fyi: dlink tech support handling time to resolve a call is 15 to 18 minutes only. if you reach that 15-18 minutes (max) time the agent will think of a way for you to call back (advising you to check with your pc manufacturer, check with your ISP, call microsoft to update your software, etc... non-sense!) they need to do this in order to reach their handling time (agents need to reach 21 to 25 billable calls, and billable calls are "solution provided", "resolved", and "dropped call"). ---- believe me, i was one of them and repented.

Web-based Configuration?


If you're connected to the router, navigate to http://192.168.0.1/ . If you're trying to configure the router remotely, that's a lot more difficult. You'll have to check your manual for more information on that. (Or I can scour through the manual for you.)

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:
    http://192.168.1.1 or
    http://192.168.2.1
  • 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.

    I have a net gear wireless router and i need to make sure no one is loged on how do i put a password on it so i can be sure no one is on my internet


    What you want to do is secure your wireless network, login to the wireless router and find the Security Settings, you want to select the option of either WPA-PSK, or WPA-PSK2, enter a passphrase consisting of uppercase, lowercase and numbers, save it, write it down somewhere too, then reboot the router. Each pc that wants to connect then will have to know your SSID, security setting and passphrase in order to connect. If you want additional security, disable the broadcasting of the SSID, then you'll be invisible to anyone trying to find hotspots.
