Re: Wireless security

Hello sir,

GETTING STARTED How to Physically Connect the D-Link
1. Plug an Ethernet cable into the DSL modem. Plug the other end of the cable into the "WAN" port on the D-Link.
2. Using an Ethernet cable, plug any wired computers into any of the 4 Ethernet ports on the D-Link.
How to Access the D-Link Configuration Screen
The D-Link is configured using a Web browser. After you have connected your computer to the D-Link router, follow these steps:
1. Launch your Web browser. Enter "" into the address bar and press the "Enter" or "Return" key.
2. A logon pop-up screen will appear. Type "admin" for the username and leave the password field blank.
3. Click "OK". A D-Link configuration screen will appear. All changes to the D-Link configuration are made here.

Change the Admin password
Leaving the password blank is not a good idea. It should be changed to something more secure. To change the password, go to the D-Link configuration screen and:
1. Click the "Tools" tab.
2. Click the "Admin" button.
3. Under the "Administrator" heading, enter the new password, and a second time to confirm.
4. Click "Apply".
5. The next time you access the D-Link configuration screen, you will need to enter the new Admin password.
Disable the Wireless LAN
If wireless access is not necessary, you should disable the wireless part of the D-Link. This will prevent anyone from accessing the network wirelessly. (If you are using the wireless features, please skip down to "Wireless Security Measures".) From the D-Link configuration screen:
1. Click the "Home" tab.
2. Click the "Wireless" button.
3. Click the "Disabled" button next to "Wireless Radio".
4. Click "Apply".
5. You are done securing your wired network. No further action is required.

Enable WEP
Enabling WEP* (Wired Equivalent Privacy) will require anyone wishing to access the Internet through your wireless network to enter a password. After the correct password is entered, a connection is established, and all data sent from the D-Link to the computer and back is encrypted. From the D-Link configuration screen:
1. Click the "Home" tab.
2. Click the "Wireless" button.
3. Click the "Open System" button next to "Authentication".
4. Set the "WEP Encryption" to "128 bit".
5. Set the "Key Type" to "ASCII".
6. Type a 13 digit password into "Key 1".
7. Click "Apply".
8. When you connect to your wireless network from a computer, you will need to enter the 13 digit password.
*Note: If your computer's operating system supports it, enabling WPA-PSK is more secure than WEP. The steps above can be modified to set up WPA-PSK.
Change the SSID
By default, the D-Link is set to advertise the existence of your wireless network to computers. It does this by broadcasting an SSID (Service Set Identifier), also called a "network name" because it identifies your wireless network. Changing the SSID makes it easier for you to distinguish your network from surrounding networks. From the D-Link configuration screen:
1. Click the "Home" tab.
2. Click the "Wireless" button.
3. Change the "SSID" from "default" to an SSID of your choice.
4. Click "Apply".

Good luck

I set up my Surveillance system and I can view the cameras on my iphone at home but when I leave I can not?

Your phone is most likely connecting via Wi-Fi when you are home, but after you're out of range of Wi-Fi, your Surveillance System must be set up to give you access through the internet. The camera instructions should tell you how to set it up and the manufacturer probably has an app that you need to install on your iphone to access your camera system from the internet.

Sometimes setting up internet access is no easy task. You must open a web port on your router in order to send and receive the signal from your security system and communicate with the internet. Determine which port the security system is set to communicate with and open that port on your router.

There are so many different configurations for security systems and routers that it would be impossible to specifically lead you through each step. But I hope this general description will be helpful in getting you started.

These units may have a firmware problem with Internet connectivity. After a week with their Tech Support They were unable to help me get it to send Emails and or FTP outbound. Although I was able to view the Video remotely.

Try setting TCP port to 37777, UDP Port to 37778 and HTP port to 83

Also, Be sure to enter at least one working DNS address.

Make sure the IP address of the DVR is in your Network. Make sure the gateway is set to your DLink's LAN IP Address.

Make sure you forward port 83 in your router to the IP address of your DVR. Check your router logs for any remaining issues.

My understanding is that GE does not produce a wireless interior siren any longer. So if yo want to get a siren in the garage a wire will have to be run from the Simon 3 to the location in the garage where you would like to place the siren. PS ADT will not run wires to a detached garage. GL

I'm not sure if you are still looking for the answer, but I think the problem may be that you need to enter the PUBLIC IP address of the modem at the remote end instead of the PRIVATE (ie. 192.168.1.x) IP that was actually assigned to the DVR. It works best if you assign a static IP to the DVR on the remote end and enter that IP into the router's DMZ. You might also want to get a free account at and setup a FQDN for your business router/modem. That way you can connect to it using something like "" instead of an IP address, and if the IP changes it will still find it. You will also have to configure your modem at the business to automatically update the dyndns server when the IP changes.
