If you got it from a friend, the first thing you should do is take a paper clip, and look in the back of the router for a little hole labelled "Reset". This will reset the router to the default settings. With the unit on, press this button for about 10 seconds. After this, hook up the router, by ethernet connection to your pc. Once the connection is made to your pc, and the router is on, go to http://192.168.0.1/ or http://192.168.1.1/ depending on the exact model. It will ask you for a username/password. The user name is "admin", and there is no password. From there, you are in the router configuration. Click "Wireless" on the left of the page to edit your wireless configuration. Click apply when you have everything set to your liking, and you're done!

2. contact your ISP ( internet service provider0 and get the information to input into the router to connect properly to the internet.
3. Go to the D-link page and an instruction set for your model router is there to guide you through the setup.

I need to put a security code on my wireless router so my neighbors cant use it but i am unsure how to do this.


Use the cd that came with the Router. Run the cd like you did when you first got it. You should come to a point where it recommends a WPA security. Click it. Then you just have to create a password. Complete the rest of the setup. Then you will have to go to any device connected through the router and put in the password. That should keep your neighbor from leeching off you.

Router Security


Once you connect to your wireless network and it ask you for a password or if you notice that your wireless network name has a lock on it or says it is secured. It means your wireless network is secured. Otherwise reconfigure your wireless to enable wireless encryption.
