Assuming you have a Windows computer, you can double click your wireless icon in the tray bar.



When I put a security code on my router how do I - c276f18.jpg

If you don't see that icon, go to start -> Control panel -> Network Connections. double-click your Wireless Network Connections, click on View Wireless Networks, and your Network should appear in the list (unless you have broadcasting your SSID turned off.)
If you try to connect to it, you will be asked for the network key.
This is where you put it in.

Just a tip: If you chose a really GOOD key (something like "V7u4mfo&iys...") and you have to enter it more often, copy that key from your router setup page and save it as a text file on a USB stick. Now you can just copy & paste without having to type and risk any mistakes!

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

How do I lock access to my DIR-615 router


Go into the routers configuration pages and turn on wireless security.
Use your browser and type 192.168.1.1 into the address bar. Type in admin for the logon and admin for the password and the routers options will be displayed. When you turn on wireless security, you will need to enter a code key. Write down the code key as you will need to enter this key into every computer that you wish to use your network.
Then save and reboot the modem.
Thats it.
Enter the code on the computers accessing the network and they should be fine too.
The code key should be kept in a secure location, stuck up on your desk is NOT a secure location.
This will prevent any computer that does not have your code key from accessing your network.

We have set a laptop wireless using bt but I cannot remember the security code I have tried putting in the code in the 192.168..1.1 in the address bar but not getting anywhere what am I doing wrong


Hi Friend,

Please disable the firewall of your system and then try to open 192.168.1.1. If that doesnot work, then reset the router. Push and hold the reset button for 30 seconds and turn it off. Switch on the router and ensure that the computer is connected with an ethernet cable with the router to configure it.

Type 192.168.1.1 and hit enter. Lave the Username blank and type admin in Password. In the router setup page click Wireless and Select the wirless mode as manual and enter the settings as required.

Click Wireless Security and set the Security as per you requirements

Security Code is configued in Wireless Router itself.

Please open your Wireless router Admin Panel in Internet Explorer. Please follow this steps.

1. Open Internet Explorer and type : http://192.168.x.x and press enter (x is router IP. Generally its 1.1 or 0.1)
2. Go to Wireless Security Tab and look there for Security code.

Now type that Security code in your Ps3 .

You find all details regarding to access router in internet explorer from Product Manual. (you can download product manual from Manufacturer site)

When filling in the security code, it is usually asking for a WEP key. This is usually found on the back of the router itself. They usually have a 10 character alpha-numeric code. If your computer is asking for 12 digits, enter two zeros infront of the code listed on the back of the router and try it again.

Hope this helps

I security enabled my belkin eb547d but when i put in the password it tells me I have to code it as wep or wpa


The passphrase is a method of setting up the encryption setting in the wireless router. Go into the router configuration and then into the wireless settings. I suggest you use WPA encryption as WEP is older and weaker encrypyion method.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.

Is one of the changes you made putting a WEP security code on the router?

If so, make sure you have entered the WEP key into your wireless computer upstairs.
