Go to the router's web interface (192.168.1.1), in the wireless section go to Wireless Security. Enable WEP, you will create a WEP key for your wireless network, then that key will be asked to any wireless device that tries to use your wireless network.

You will first need to hook the router to your modem. With the modem powered on, power on your connected D-Link router and wait a few minutes while it initializes and get's an ip address from the modem. From there, if you have the disk, install it and run it on your laptop/pc. This will give you a network monitor and make it alot easier to connect. If you do not, open the "network connections" on your computer and find where it allows you to select a wireless connection. Select yours and enjoy. You may want to password your router so no one can steal your signal.

I just purchased a Acer Netbook 10.1 wireless. Do I need to enter a security code in order to get on the internet.


No, you do not need to enter a security code to get on the internet. You have to use an ethernet cable to connect the wireless router to your ADSL modem. Your wireless router should first be configured with an IP address that will allow it to communicate with the modem. However, if it works you should configure a security code on your wireless router to prevent others from connecting via your wireless without permission.

I was having connection problems to the internet. A verizon tech came out and said my modem was old and out dated. He replaced it with a new modem but I don't know how to get my linksys wireless router...


Most of the modems that Verizon (depending which market you are in) techs are using are combination modem/routers, so you may not need to use your Linksys wireless router anymore. Typically the default SSID (wireless signal name) and password (if there is one) is printed on a label attached to the router. You can use this default info if you'd like or reconfigure the router using the following steps. 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 username and 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.

Wanting to make my laptop wireless connection


Hello.

Connect the MODEM (device you received from your Internet Serivce Provider that gets the Internet signal) to the router via the WAN port. WAN stands for Wide Area Network and this gets you out to the Modem and then to the Internet.

Ports 1 and higher are for computers and network printers that you can directly connect to your LAN - Local Area Network.

To secure your connection, you will need to configure your router and you will need to connect your laptop to the router (either wireless or via one of the numbered ports on the back of the router), open a web browser and enter the IP address of the router.

Since you did not put the model of the router, I cannot give you specifics on how to secure the connection. You can go to the D-Link web site, find your router, download the manual and it will walk you thru the settings.

Basically, you will be entering a WEP key (a set of letters and numbers that you know) to allow only wireless computers that have this key.

I am changing to a new PC, from one that is already connected to a ASDL+ modem and a Linksys router. Do I need to install new drivers(for ASDL+ modem or Linksys router) in the new PC? Or can I just plug...


For you to use the modem direct - you may need drivers - BUT connecting to a router does not require any drivers - and you should just be able to plug in and go If wireless - then you may need to provide the wireless security key if the wireless is secure - and if the wireless is on the same SSID name as before that may cayse a problem - but you can renove the xp wireless profiles to overcome that Wireless Profiles

  • http://www.tp-link.com/support/showfaq.asp?id=186
- delete the preferred networks start>control panel>network connections> right click on the wireless connection listed wireless networks tab in the preferred network list click on each one and - remove button you will then have to enter the wireless security key for any networks you connect to
If on a LAN connection - you may need to turn off the modem/router and PC - then turn on the modem - allow to settle and all the light to show normal status - turn on router and do the same then turn on the PC

first of all are you talking about a secure wireless connection. if you aren't, then what it means is using an encryption key to secure your wireless connection. any computer connecting to your router can connect wirelessly and use your connection to do whatever they want unless you secure it. let me know a little more details and i will help you get it all set right.
