There should be a reset button located on the back on the router. Hold on that button for about thirty seconds or so and resetup the router with the password.

I cant connect my wireless dlink dir 600 to wireless connection


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Dlink DIR 615, network name changed, won't accept password


It appears your brother has changed your wireless router settings.
You can reset the Dlink back to the default settings by -
Power off the Dlink and press and hold the RESET button on the back of the Dlink and the power on the Dlink. Hold the RESET button for 5 secs. until the LEDs flash at the same time.
Connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Dlink. Open a browser and enter the Dlink's configuration URL
http://192.168.0.1
Default login = admin
PW = blank (just press Enter)
You can now change the admin password and set up a new passphrase (ie encryption)

Hi Mike,

First off, I'd reset the router in order to gain access. On the back of the router, you'll find a little hole, that if you take a paper clip and un roll one end, you can use that to push into the hole. Hold the reset button in for 10 seconds. This resets the router back to the manufacturer's defaults. Once that is done, Open up a browser and type in the following IP address in the address line. 192.168.0.1 and the user name is admin, and leave the password blank. This will get you into the router, so you can setup your connection again.

Good Luck and dorn't forget to leave a rating.

Thanks

Mark

Password Lost


Assuming you mean the WEP key or WPA passphrase you can log into the router over a cabled connection and reset it. If you've forgotten the password to the router you can do a hard reset, press the pinhole button on the back of most DLink, Netgear, Linksys, etc routers, this will reset the username and password back to the factory defaults.

I have a dlink dl524 and trying to set security on it


Hi, I will lend a hand if I can.

Important Note! Use a wired connection to your router when setting up security.

There are four basic steps to setting up wireless security, which are the same for most routers:

1) Login to your router
2) Change the router login password/username
3) Change the network name, or SSID
4) Enable WPA encryption

Here are the details, taken from the Dlink site:

1) Login to your router.
Type the router address in the address bar of a web browser. For this router, the default is
192.168.0.1

You should see a popup box. If you have not changed the password, enter username: admin and leave the password blank.

This should bring up the configuration screen/user interface.

2) Change the router password.
If you haven’t set a password, this is a good place to start. Go to Admin > Tools. Set new admin and username passwords and click 'Apply'.


3) Change the SSID (router name):
Go to Home > Wireless, and change the SSID from ‘default’ to anything you like –as long as you can remember it. It is case sensitive, and you can usually use up to 32 letters – but don’t use something that could identify you, or your location. Click ‘Apply’ when finished.

4) Enable encryption
Still in Home > Wireless, select WPA-PSK.

Under ‘Passphrase’ you should enter a long password, or passphrase, between 8 and 63 letters/numbers long. This can be any series of letters/ numbers, or you can use a phrase with numbers ( eg - 456HapPY2009toyou8899). It is case sensitive.

The passphrase is also called the network key, and sometimes WPA shared key, PSK, pre-shared key, WPA-PSK, authentication key.

Note down the passphrase/network key carefully. You will need this to connect wirelessly. Click ‘Apply’ when finished.

That's it, you have done enough to secure your network, and can close the screen. (There are other options you can configure at a later stage if you wish.)

When you next connect wirelessly, you'll see the router with its new name in your 'available wireless networks'. When you attempt to connect, you are asked for the network key you set in Step 4. If all goes well, you can then save this and will connect automatically in future.

Hope this helps, but if it is not clear or doesn't work, please come back to Fixya. Good luck...

Periodic Lost of Conection


I experienced this problem before, what mine turned out to be was that when I configured the router to accept a passphrase the problem would appear it worked fine without the passphrase but this is not secure at all. I tried a few things, but nothing worked. I ended up getting a NetGear Router.

Hope this helps
