Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
I have a Dlink DI524 wireless router connected to a mac (OSX 10.4.11). I want to limit access to my wireless router, so I tried to set up a password by doing the following: 1. I go to 192.168.0.1, click on "Home" and "Wireless" 2. I set "Security" to WEP 3. I set "WEP Encryption" to 128Bit and Key Type to ASCII. 4. I click on Key1" and provide a 13 letter password, but when I click "apply" nothing happens and the Security status reverts to "disabled". My computer is set to PPPoE and does connect to the internet. Any ideas on how I can successfully enable a password for my router? Thanks.
Alright, it was a dumb thing to do....just make sure you use internet explorer...It works in there...don't ask why lol....I have no idea :D

Tips for a great answer:
Wireless Router settings:
It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, which you
can get from the manufacturers' website, usually for free, but be sure to be
ready to set the items listed below:
To get access, start your browser, and put 192.168.1.1 or
192.168.0.1, or other address for your unit, into the ADDRESS bar (not search
box) of your Internet Browser. Every unit has unique access login and
passwords, some are admin with no password, some are admin and admin...seek
access information from the website of the manufacturer of your unit. Look
under support, downloads, drivers or similar sounding areas.
Things to set:
(Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to
SAVE EVERY page before you leave it, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows
this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes. SAVE
Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping
to bottom of the router. Physical access is typically NOT the security issue.
Set a recognizable system ID (descriptive name
is easier to find when you need to connect wirelessly).
Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.
Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or
cell #. Consider taping this information to bottom of the router. (Physical
access is usually not the security issue.)
Check that your router is set to broadcast its'
Change the channel of the wireless to 11, and
avoid conflict with landline cordless phones. (Big issue, even the neighbors
There are more secure settings available, all the way down
to only allowing certain MAC addresses to have access. A MAC address is a digit
unique to each and every network card. Like a fingerprint. Most users do not
set mac address limits.
