Do you have any security setup on the router? Is it configured for WPA? If not, then that's why you can't login.

If so, if possible, reset the router and reconfigure it. Make sure you have the updated firmware first for the router.

Whats a wpa key? I have tried connecting to my router on my wireless device and my wireless device ask's for a wpa key? is it the same as a lan key?


WPA <<===>> WIRELESS PROTECTED ACCESS

You need to use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to the router, and then access the web-server inside the router, and then run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard". When you do, you will set:

* the SSID ("network name") -- pick anything you prefer
* the encryption-level (hint: use 'WPA')
* the password for the network -- pick anything you can remember

Then, from a wireless device, do a "View Available Wireless Networks".
Select the SSID, and enter the password, to make a connection.

I want to put a code to prevent other people using my internet


Please reset your Router or Modem-Router to factory defaults by keeping the reset button pressed for 10 seconds while the router is powered. Then, connect the router to the modem, and connect a computer to the router with an Ethernet cable. Run the Setup Assistant on this computer. The software is not strictly required to configure the Router or Modem-Router, you can also use the built-in web based configuration tool on http://192.168.2.1.

Then in the user interface find BASIC.From there in th Wireless Network Name put a name for your network.There are three wireless security modes, including WEP, WPA-Personal, and WPA-Enterprise. WEP is the original wireless encryption standard. WPA provides a higher level of security.Use WPA-Personal and in the Pre-Shared Key :use a strong mix key.

I want to put a password in to secure my wireless


You need to log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) into the Address (or URL) line. The default usernameand password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved.
Let me know how you make out.

How to lock d-link wireless so that no one can use my internet


Hello you have different level of security on it.
If it is open and without any security surely others will pirate and hack your Network system.
You can log onto the default IP is http://192.168.0.1
Specify user name and password for your router, the default is `admin' (optional) and password is blank (nothing). or at times it is ' admin '
There are 2 common mode of security that can be enable
1st is :WEP Encryption
2nd is : WPA-PSK Encryption
The wpa-psk is most stable and secure network
You can also use 128 bit encryption password
Hope this might help you

Log in to the router, check Wireless settings, Security is in the same area. I find that WPA-PSK[TKIP] is the easiest type to use, as you can use pretty much any sort of password longer than 7 characters. This can be done with the wired connection.
