1. Make sure you have the same password in both the places 2. Make sure there is no MAC Address filtering in the modem / router 3. If there is a firewall in your wife's machine, disable it 4. If nothing works reset the router once and start it again. reset would bring it back to factory defaults.
Hope this helps
Thanks

Hiya, you might need to re-install the driver on her computer( I presume you are using two computers) and re enter the wep key, then the password should be fine. you may also want to check any firewall settings and allow all computers to access the gateway. Hope this is of some use, not really my strongest point :)

Configuring dlink 1320


Wirelessly or cable ?
D-Link Router to an AT&T DSL Modem
With an always-on, high-speed Internet connection like DSL (Digital Subscriber Line), a router is a prudent addition to your local network.
It filters out unauthorized access to your network, which prevents an intruder from accessing computers that are connected to that network.
However, getting your computers, routers and modems on the same page may not work right "out of the box."
There are a few things you must be aware of, especially if this is a wireless network.

Unplug your DSL modem and D-Link router.
In order for the network to properly recognize its devices, these devices must be attached in a specific order.
Plug in your DSL modem's power cord.
There is usually no power button on a modem.
Simply plugging in its electrical cable will turn it on.
Give your DSL modem a couple minutes to re-establish its connection to AT&T's network before taking any further action.
Plug in your D-Link router's power cord.
Like the DSL modem, this router will probably not have a power switch; simply plug in the power cable, and it turns on.
Let the D-Link router sit for a couple minutes while it establishes its connection to the DSL modem and AT&T's network.
Physically attach your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Even if the router and modem are wireless, a physical connection must be established to properly configure the router.
If this is not a wireless network, then your setup procedure is essentially complete.
To access a D-Link router on your network, open an Internet browser and navigate to the 192.168.0.1 address.
This will bring you to your D-Link router's interface.
The default User Name is "admin" (without the quotes), and there is no password.
Enter the User Name and click the "Log In" button. This will bring you to the Setup window.
Refer to your D-Link router's documentation for changing the default password (highly recommended) and forwarding ports.
If this is a wireless network, you have a couple further steps.
First, change your network's SSID (Service Set Identifier) title, so that you can recognize it when other wireless networks are nearby.
Also, choose your wireless encryption and passphrase. WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) is a solid option.
Specific instructions depend on your model of D-Link router; so refer to your documentation (which can usually be found at the manufacturer's website if you do not have it on hand).
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer.
Your new wireless network should be visible with your computer's wireless adapter.
Windows and OS X will notify you of networks in range when your adapter is active.
Connect to the one with your SSID, and enter the passphrase.

Wireless Network D-Link
If you have a D-link wireless network, your computer is susceptible to outside intruders unless you take preventive measures to prevent intrusion.
There are some important settings that you need to change within your D-link control panel to add an extra measure of security.
By changing these settings, the intruders will have no other choice but to choose another computer to attack.

Type the router IP address, "192.168.0.1", into your Internet browser.
Press "Enter" on your keyboard.
Enter your username and password to log into the D-link configuration panel.
By default, the username is "Admin" with a blank password field.
To prevent outsiders from being able to access your D-link router's configuration panel, change the username and password to something more secure.
This can be done by selecting "Tools" from the menu and selecting "Admin."
Select "Administration Settings" and enter your new username and password.
Save your changes by clicking "Apply."

Enter the IP addresses for the computers you want to give access to your router.
You can do this by clicking the "DHCP" link underneath the "Home" tab. Click "Apply" to save the IP addresses.
Select the "Wireless" link underneath the "Home" tab.
Enter a name in the "SSID" field to identify your wireless network.

Choose "WPA" for your "Security" option.
WPA will provide the highest level of security for your wireless network. Create a WPA password to access your wireless network.
For maximum security, enter a combination of numbers, letters, and symbols.
Store your password in a safe place in case you ever forget it.
Click "Apply" to save your settings.

Install a software firewall program on your computer to add an additional measure of security for your wireless network.
A few of the popular firewall programs available are Norton Antivirus, McAfee and Zone Alarm.

I want to make sure my wireless signal is secure. How do I do this?


I assume that you have a wireless router that is connected to your Motorola cable-modem.

Connect to the web-server "inside" the router, and configure the wireless network:
* set an SSID -- the "name" for your network
* set an encryption-level -- use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* set a password for your network

Now, your wireless communications between your computer and your router will be encrypted, i.e., "secure".

Also, having a password keeps other computers out, if their owners do not know the password.

What is a security key


WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) is an advancement over WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy). While connecting to a home network, you are often asked to insert a WPA key or a password to which users often ask, "How Do I Find My Computer's WPA Key?" WPA stands for Wi-Fi Protected Access. It is a standard security protocol implemented by Wi-Fi alliance to secure wireless computer networks. WPA standard is advancement over(Wired Equivalent Privacy) Wep is standard that had several security issues. WPA implements most of the IEEE 802.11i standard and provides greater security than WEP.
While connecting to your home network, you are often asked to insert a WPA key. This WPA key is either located in the modem or in the router you are using. In order to find your computer's WPA key, follow the steps given below:
How to find your computer's WPA key Step 1: First of all, you need to launch an internet browser. Press "Windows + R" keys to open the "Run" prompt and type "iexplore" without quotes to open Internet Explorer. You can also type "firefox" to open Mozilla Firefox. On the address bar at the top, type http://192.168.1.1 (Belkin routers use 192.168.2.1 as the default IP) and press "Enter" key.
This address belongs to your wireless modem or wireless router to which you are connected.
Step 2: A window asking for username and password will appear. In the username field, type "admin" without quotes and in the password field, either type "password" without quotes or leave the password field blank. Press "Enter" key to continue.
If password is correct, you will be redirected to the modem/router's "Settings" page, otherwise, you will have to reset the modem/router. Check beneath the modem/router or check the manual for correct password.
To Reset a modem/router, locate a small hole at the back of the modem/router and insert a pin to press the switch inside it. Keep the switch pressed for about 20-30 seconds after which the modem/router will restore the settings to "factory defaults" and reboot itself.
Repeat the step 2, in order to gain access to "Settings" page.
Step 3: On the modem/router's "Settings" page, find "Wireless" option. Click the "Wireless" link to populate the wireless settings. Now, locate and click the "Security" or "Advanced Security" option.
On the security page, you will find "Network Authentication". Different options available under the Network Authentication menu are open, shared, WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, etc. Select either WPA or WPA2, to find your computer's WPA key and insert this key when asked for.
If in step 2, you had reset the modem/router, you will not find any WPA or WPA2 key, and you will have to manually assign one. Select any of the WPA-PSK or any other authentication and assign a key to it. A key can be 8-63 long. For minimal security, you can choose 8 characters key, like "iN\/5R92". For maximum security, choose 63 characters key like, "sJ0esmoU2cBD\m+oMp$nrXj5XPVRTvVA5fpwGSGI\RVz4RdQ7V3y\l$P1NrT9Be".
After you have assigned a key, save/apply the changes and reboot the modem/router.
Note: The procedure shown above is common to most of the modems/routers. If this doesn't apply to you, check your modem/router's manual to find the wireless security option.
