I am trying to secure my D-link router, I do not know how to lock it so that I do not get unauthorised access.


As you have not mentioned the make/ model of your router, I would describe the router security settings in general.
First you have to access the router through web browser (Internet Explorer) by typing the IP address of your router in the address bar, which is 192.168.0.1 OR 192.168.1.1 (Default router settings are written under the router)
(unless you've configured otherwise, the default username is admin and the password "leave it blank" OR Type "admin") and lookup for the options to do the following: -

1.On the left-hand side, under Setup, click "Wireless Setup" 2.Under "Wireless Security Mode", select your desired encryption method (preferably WPA2-PSK)
3.Choose/change the Network Key - it can be anything, as long as it's 8-63 characters in length
4. Click Save Settings.
Now your router and your connection would become secure and the user has to provide the network key to access the internet.

Also, for additional security, you may try the followng steps: -
1. Change the SSID (Name) of the router
2. Change the default administrative user name and password
(The above step would prevent unauthorized access to your router)

In the screen shot below I have highlighted the above mentioned options for DLink Dir300 Router, which would help you.

Now your router and your connection would become secure and the user has to provide the network key to access the internet.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I dont know how to put internet on my dsi


  1. Turn on the Nintendo DSi
  2. Click on the wrench icon to access "System Settings."
  3. Select "Internet" on the third page of System Settings.
  4. Select "Connection Settings" and tap the "None" bar in "Connection 1."
  5. You have the option of setting up a connection manually, or searching for available connections in the area. You may also access your Nintendo Wi-Fi USB connector, if you have one (the product has been discontinued). The easiest thing to do is select "Search for an Access Point."
  6. Your Nintendo DSi will list the names of any wireless access points in range. A gold, unlocked icon next to the connection's name signifies an unlocked WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) connection that can be accessed immediately. A locked gold icon signifies an encrypted WEP connection that requires a WEP key (password).
  7. If you are accessing a locked/encrypted connection, enter your WEP key. You may also click "Change Security Settings" to enter a WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) key.
  8. If your WEP key is correct, your Nintendo DSi should connect. You can test your connection to verify.
  9. You're set! Now you can surf the Internet, purchase games and add-ons in the Nintendo DSi Shop, and play games that allow wireless access and competition (with WEP connections, only).

My Wii will not connect to my router. I have tried all the routerlogin.net and .com solution attempts. Also the 192.168.1.1 stuff. No luck. Netgear tells me I have to use their support tech at $69.995....


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to connect you Wii to the internet wirelessly first we need to know the settings of your router. Listed below are the steps on how to access your router. You need a working computer connected to the router to access it follwed by the steps on how to connect our Wii.

How to access the Router:

To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type 192.168.0.1 or http://routerlogin.net. The Default username is admin and the password is password. Password is case sensitive.

Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key (Wep/Wpa Key) or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure. Network Key is case sensitive.

Now that we have the information needed lets connect your Wii to the internet.

1. Select Wii Settings
2. Then Internet Connection Settings
3. Search for an AP or SSID
4. Input Security Key or Network Key
5. Test the Connection.
Other Suggestion

Did this connection used to work but has suddenly stopped? "Power cycle" your router by unplugging it from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then plug in the router. Try to connect the Wii and test for proper response.

The Wii may have detected and set itself to the wrong security type during the initial connection set up. Try creating a new connection file and going through the connection process again but be sure that when the Wii asks for a security code, the type shown on screen (WEP or WPA) is what your router is set to. If it is different

Change your router's channel setting to 1 or 11. By default, most routers broadcast on channel 6, which overlaps with other channels and may be weaker

Don't forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya

No internet


  1. Turn on your Nintendo DSi and access your system settings by clicking on the wrench icon.
  2. Scroll over to the third page, and select "Internet."
  3. Now choose "Connection Settings."
  4. Click on "None" in "Connection 1."
  5. Then click "Search for an Access Point"
The system will then display the name of any wireless access point within range. If nothing shows up, try moving to another location.

If The access point has a gold, unlocked icon, tap the access point's name, and then "OK." The system will then establish a connection with your router.

If The access point has a gold, locked icon, the Nintendo DSi has detected WEP/WPA key security on your router:
  1. Tap the Access Point name.
  2. You can either enter your WEP Key, or click "Change Security Settings" to enter a WPA key.
  3. Tap "OK" again and the system will then establish a connection with your router.
If The access point has a gray, locked icon, the system has determined your router is set to WPA security. You need to access the Advanced Setup area of the system to connect with this security method.
  • Instead of tapping "None" in "Connection 1", click "Advanced Setup", then click "None" in "Connection 5".

Error code 051099


It appears that the settings entered into the Nintendo DS are not compatible, or the router's broadcast settings should be changed.

What we need to do is try creating a new connection with your system.
1. Turn on your Nintendo DSi and access the System Settings by clicking on the wrench icon
2. Scroll over to the third page, and select "Internet."
3. Now choose "Connection Settings."
4. Click on "None" for "Connection 1." (Don't see "None" for Connection 1? To ensure any existing settings don't interfere with getting connected, tap the button, then choose "Clear Settings.")
5. Click on "Search for an Access Point."
6. The Nintendo DSi will search for any wireless networks within range. Once it is finished searching, it will display the names of all the wireless networks it finds.
Look for your wireless network.
7.What to do next will depend on the "lock" icon you see next to your network on the Nintendo DSi.

You will now have 3 options
A. GOLD UNLOCKED LOCK (No security - Tap on your network name to save the settings and begin a connection test.)
B. GOLD LOCKED LOCK
WEP security - Your wireless network is secured with WEP and requires a security key.

Follow the steps now depending on your option
A.
Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes." The connection test was successful - Your Nintendo DSi is now connected online.
The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code. LET ME KNOW WHAT IT IS

B. WEP security - Your wireless network is secured with WEP and requires a security key.
Enter your WEP key
On the upper screen you will be informed that "A security key is needed to connect to this access point." Enter your security key by tapping the empty field, and select "OK" when finished.

Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes."


The connection test was successful - Your Nintendo DSi is now connected online.

  • The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code.
    • Error Code 51300 or 51099: This means the security code entered into the Nintendo DSi is not the same one the router is set to. Scroll back up to step #3 of this page for the step-by-step directions. To reach your connection settings, click "back" on the error code screen. Make sure to pay extra attention to the security key you find in your router's settings and enter it exactly as it appears (the key is case sensitive).
    • All other error codes: Let me know what it is.

    HOW DO I LOCK MY ROUTER


    Locking the router can be done by setting a WEP key. Its a 10 digit alphanumeric key that you can set. Once you set it up, anyone who tries to access your router wirelessly will be prompted for that 10 digit key. Be sure to change your SSID (wireless network name) also so that you can distinguish your own secured wireless network from others.

    SSID can be changed on the main setup page.

    1. To access it, open Internet explorer while your computer is physically connected to the router.

    2. Type http:\\192.168.1.1 (the default IP address of the router.) It will ask you for the username and password.

    3. Enter the word "admin" for both username and password. It is the factory default username and password. On the main setup page, you will find the field for SSID or Network name.

    4. Type your unique wireless network name and click the Save button on the bottom of the page.

    5. On the router's web-based setup page, click the Wireless tab then click the Wireless Security sub-tab

    6. Click the drop-down arrow for Security Mode and select WEP.

    7. Under WEP Encryption select 64 bits 10 hex digits.

    8. Enter a unique word in the Passphrase field, then click Generate.

    9. The result will be a string of letters and numbers displayed in the space provided for Key 1.

    NOTE: Take note of what is in Key 1. This key will serve as the wireless security password. Keep this key confidential.

    10. Click the Save Settings button.


    From now on, whenever anyone tries to access your wireless network, they need to enter Key 1 which you only know. There you go. Your wireless network is protected.

    I want to install my wii to my internet. I have a Belkin Router. I need a Security Key or password to get my wii onto my internet. What is the Security Key or password?


    the security key is your wep key you can get this buy going on the router itself. Follow this trouble shooting guide and if you need help or it still doesnt work follow up with a comment and i will assist you further. Please try the following troubleshooting: Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router? Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance) Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters). If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types: WPA - PSK (TKIP) WPA - PSK (AES) WPA2 - PSK (AES)
    If your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering: From the router settings, locate the "MAC address filter" settings (also known as "access control", "access list", or "network filter" depending on your router model). If the Mac address filter is set to "enabled", then you must add the Wii's MAC address to the "allowed" list. You can locate the Wii's MAC address from the "console information" page (located under "Internet" in the Wii Settings). If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.

    Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router. Click here to go to our Wireless Router lookup page. Use the drop-down box to select, if available, your router manufacturer. Click on your router's model number, if available. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing settings described in the "special notes."

    Try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP configuration settings. To access these settings: On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run." Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings. Locate the settings asked for by the Wii console during the Manual Setup process and enter them.

    Power cycle your router and modem by unplugging them both from the wall. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then turn on the router. Try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response. if you require further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. -Midwest-tek

    Can not connect to internet thorough my dlink 614 router It tells me the internet security key is incorrect even though i know it is not


    Hi,

    Please access the web interface of the router and confirm the security key. Also, you can try to change the security key. It can be a possibility that your computer is not synchronizing properly with the current security settings.

    If you find that you are putting the right security key then please change the security type to wep 64 bit or wep 128 bit and configure a new key. Also, change the SSID or the network name and try to connect.

    In case of any issues please let me know which windows you are running and the security settings on the router.

    Thanks,
