Hi there securing your wireless is not that much tough.I will guide you with some simple methods.

Windows XP
1.open the control panel and go to network connections and right click the connection that is active and select properties and select tcp/ip and click properties and change the ip settings to automatic.

2.Now connect the pc/Laptop to your wireless router through wired port.

3.open your internet explorer and type 192.168.0.1 in the address bar.The login page of the router will open.In this page give the username as "admin" and password as "admin" in some router the password will be "password" ( this passwords are default.if you have changed the password login with that password)

4.Now you will be logged into the router's page and you can see the settings of the router.In that go to the wireless security and enable it.

5.You can have two type of securities one is WEP and other is WPA.Select anyone and give the password for this security.

6.Then save the settings and restart the router.Now your wireless network is secured.If you are connecting through wireless you need to give the password that you gave for WEP/WPA.

Hope your problem might be solved.Feel free to get my assistance.

I have router DI-524 and am unable to connect to internet thru this router. But it says, it is connected


I would do a hard reset by pushing the small button on the back. You will need a small pen to push it. Push and hold down button till the lights flash I would/ say 10-15 seconds should be good enough. Once it's reset try setting up all of your settings again. Remember if you have dsl you will need you username and password to be inputed in some cases. If it is broadband most likely you will not have to bother with username and pass hope this helps.

Cant connect my laptop wirelessly...


Try to reconfigure your wireless network on your DI-524.

To access the configuration page of your router by Default type in on the address bar 192.168.0.1. On the login page by default the Username is admin and leave the Password blank.

If inside the the configuration page of the router

>Click Home
> Click on WIRELESS located on the left side and you will have the wireless setting of your network
> Change the wireless network name
> Under security choose either WEP or WPA -PSK for this type of router.
> Type in your new network key (also know as Passphrase of Key1).

For WEP use 0 to 9 Number or A to F character and it should be exactly 10 characters.
For WPA-PSK you can use alpha numeric from 0 to 9 and from A to Z. The minimun character would be 8.

> Click on apply
> Click on continue.
Try accessing your wireless network first using your wireless computer. If you are connected to your wireless network try connecting to the Internet.

Connecting with internet


Yes, that is possible since you have a wireless router. Router can share internet connection. Go to this link this will help you setup the wireless connection (secure it if you want)

http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/wireless/Dlink/DI-524/wireless.htm then on the very bottom there is an option how to Configure Windows XP to connect to your wireless network.

I suggest this because it would be better if there is encryption on the network so people wont be able to access your internet for free (unless you give them the security key)
