Re: connecting to secure network

When enabling wireless security the router and adapter must be both be configured and configured in a fashion that both support. If you need help provide confirmation of your wireless router's manufacturer and model and the same information for any wireless adapters or computers with built-in wireless adapters to be wirelessly connected.

This will allow us to determine the common security options for all wireless devices you have.

Bought and installed a usb wireless lan for my desk top, it brings up all the wifi in my area, i can connect to my wireless router i am using now with my laptop but wont bring up web pages. shows i am...

To test your Internet connection use a LAN cable, connect to your laptop to your router and if you can get an Internet connection then most likely your USB wireless adapter is not configured correctly for connecting to your wireless router.
To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

How do you enable security for linksys wireless routers

  1. Type "" into your Internet browser, and press "Enter."
  2. When login page opens up, type the username and password for your wireless router.Depending on your router brand, you may have "admin" and "password" as the respective default username and password. But again, you must refer to your wireless router support manual.
  3. Once logged in, click "Wireless Security" and Select "WEP" as the security encryption type
  4. Set the default transmit key to "1".
  5. Type in a passphrase and click "Generate". This generates random passkeys.
  6. Note down your network's SSID (listed on the security page) and the first WEP key. This is the information that you will need when trying to allow new connection through the wireless network.

It is telling me that the dlink is unsecured

This means that you have an open network. Your router has its default passwords and has not been changed at all. This will allow users/strangers to login to your router or connect to your network wirelessly.

To secure your router, just define a password for your route and for your wireless connection. Open a new browser, type on the address bar, Username is admin and leave the password blank, then login. You will then enter to your router's control panel. Look for the Wireless settings and choose a setting to define a password for your wireless connection. Follow the instructions and click ok. After that process, your network will be secured.

Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using FixYa.

How do i make my unsecured network secure? using linksys WRT54G v8

Access the setup page of router by typing in the address bar.

By default, leave the username blank and the password is admin.

Once on the setup page, go to Wireless. Under Basic Wireless settings, change the default SSID Linksys into any name. This will allow you to easily determine which is your wireless network.

Then go to Wireless Security and enable WEP. Type a passphase and click the generate button. Take note of the Network key. Remember that you will use this network key to all wireless computers.

On your wireless computer, view the available wireless networks or site survey. Select your SSID and enter the network key to connect.

I hope this helps!

Making an unsecure wireless network secure.

Yes - that's not too difficult. Look at the manual (if you don't have one, you can download it here). The DIR-300 has a Wireless Security Setup Wizard included and it makes the setup a breeze. Look at page 62 onwards. Some hints:
  1. The name of your wireless network (your SSID) should be something unique, so nobody can connect to it "accidentally". Use a name that does not reveal the name of your router!
  2. Choose WPA2-PSK (Pre-shared key) as your authentication model if possible. WEP is not secure at all, although better than nothing (but not much.) If you have Windows XP installed, you might need an update for your wireless adapter (you can get that here)
  3. Make the password as long and difficult to guess as possible. Mine looks like "Vo90los0!d?k0slkfh...". All you do is copy that key into a text document, save that document on a USB-stick and paste it from there, when your computer asks for it (see page 78).
  4. Do the configuration from a computer connected via a cable - not wireless!
  5. Don't forget to change the default password for the web based interface for your router. All wireless security is useless if someone can just log into your router and get the password or - even worse - change passwords and take over your router(see page 47).
If you also want to enable MAC address filtering, look here. (MAC address filtering means that you specifically allow certain wireless adapters to access your router. This is a good measure, but MAC addresses can be spoofed, so it can only be another step into the right direction.)

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

Username & password

Changing the router password from admin to any password I think that you would be possible. Other brands of router has that option. And the router password won't affect the password for the wireless connection, they are different from each other. Wireless mac Filter is another way of securing your wireless network. Its done by listing the MAC Addrses (media Access control) or the physical address of your wireless adapter on your computer/s to either allow them to connect to the network or not to connect to the network. but I recommend to just use WPA security. It's secured and its much easier to add another wireless device to your network, because you just need to put the password and no need to get the MAC address and manually encode in on your router setup page. Its also possible to change the SSID or the name of your network.

I will get back to you with the steps on how to change the ssid adn change the router password. Okay?

Belkin F5D8233-4 router & I pod touch wifi

What I would try is while the wifi is unsecure go on the computer and open up the browser you are using, on your router the default ip address is

type the router default ip address in the browser where you would normally type a web address

Logging into the Router
You will see the Router’s home page in your browser window. The home page is visible to any user who wants to see it. To make any changes to the Router’s settings, you have to log in. Clicking the
“Login” button or clicking on any one of the links on the home page will take you to the login screen. The Router ships with no password entered. In the login screen, leave the password blank and click the
“Submit” button to log in.
Configuring the Wireless Network Settings
The “Wireless” tab lets you make changes to the wireless network settings. From this tab you can make changes to the wireless network name or Service Set Identifier (SSID), operating channel, encryption security settings, and configure the Router to be used as an access point.
Setting up an Allow Access List
1. Select the “Allow” radio button (1) to begin setting up a list of
computers allowed to connect to the wireless network.
2. Next, in the “MAC Address” field that is blank (3), type in the
MAC address of the wireless computer you want to be able to
access the wireless network, then click “<<Add” (4).
3. Continue to do this until all of the computers you want to add
have been entered.
4. Click “Apply Changes” (5) to finish.

this will allow only the wireless device you select to access your router.

D-Link router wont let me go onto the net with the wirless router

At the bottom right hand corner of your screen, you have a wireless connection icon. right click and view available wireless network...if you see your network there. connect to that network, if secured, then call d-link to verfiy what is your network key. if it is unsecure then you can log on right away.

if that wont allow you to connect then upgrade firmware of router.
