Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)

D-Link 514 Secure Networking


We have a old D-Link 514 wireless router that works fine. We've recently realized our wireless network is not secure.

D-Link is offering no support on how to secure the network because the router is so dated.

Can anyone offer any advice on how to find the router network wizard or advise on how to secure the network.

Ie; Password protect it ?

Thanks so much in advance.

To read the manual you will need Adobe Reader (free)
If needed click the Get Adobe Reader button on the following link
http://www.adobe.com

The DL-514 has several revisions use the pictures and the label on the router to get the revision for your router. Click on the picture and get the Product Manual (from the left column) -- you will need it to configure the router.
http://support.dlink.com/products/revision.asp?productid=DI%2D514


Looking at the page and manual for the A and B versions of this router which will not match yours WEP was originally supported adn WPA can be added with a firmware update on the page. -- you will need to tell me the revision for your router so I can gather the correct information for it to assist. Please report that in a comment to this issue.

WEP or WPA are kinda like passwords but you only enter them once into the router and once into each computer to access the network. The router has an administrative password that should also be set but that only stops people from changing the router configuration like we will do shortly.

I am looking forward to your response and pursuing the next steps in this process.

Once you get me that we will proceed to the next steps.

For belkin router http://192.168.15.1
or

If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on wireless settings then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.

Log on to the routers interface . Under wireless you will have the options to enable security. You will have to put in a passkey in the router and use the same one while connecting from the computer .
