    I have set up the router before, but i need help going through setting it back up again step by step... I have no idea about this stuff, and I'm unfamiliar with the terminology so it's helpful when the questions are as detailed as possible...and I'm confused about how I can set up wireless, when I need the ethernet cable to be plugged directly into the computer to be able to chat online. Please help...

    Hello-

    I got as far as this:


    DHCP Connection (Dynamic IP Address)

    To
    set up this connection, please make sure that you are connected to the
    D-Link Router with the PC that was originally connected to your
    broadband connection. If you are, then click the Clone MAC button to
    copy your computer's MAC Address to the D-Link Router.






    but it will not allow me to move forward when I click on "next," nothing happens :(

For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
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.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.

Ok. If you don't know your password. Then you will want to access the router and change the password. Here is the manual refer to page 14/78, and wireless settings are on p. 25/78
http://www.netwood.net/support/manuals/D-Link_WBR2310_manual_10.pdf
It is a very straight forward setup if you have any questions about the steps please let me know. Basically you just use your internet browser(IE,firefox,etc) type 192.168.0.1 in the address box use admin username and leave password blank. Then refer to the steps in the manual to adjust your wireless settings. If you have any other questions I will be more then happy to assist you further.
Thank you,
Lee

    did you have the internet working on the router at all? Have you tried or considered hooking up a Ethernet cable straight to the router. Get it all set up that way then connect with wireless/ Also if you have to you can always reset the router back to factory settings.

    To reset the router, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear panel of the unit. With the router powered on, use a paperclip to hold the button down for 10 seconds. Release the button and the router will go through its reboot process. Wait about 30 seconds to access the router. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1. When logging in, the username is admin and leave the password box empty.

    Like I said follow the steps and it is all pretty straight forward. Also most times. You don't even have to run the wizard. You can just click on the wireless tab and set up wireless and most times internet will work on router depending on your type of internet. If you have dsl their may be some additional steps to put in your user name and password for your dsl account.
    Thank you,
    Lee

Sir i lost my wireless network name and wireless network password


Hello Leonard,

You can just reset your wireless router to restore factory settings. If you reset it, your network name will be back to DLINK and you won't need any password. To reset it, look for the reset button usually found at the back of routers. It is a small button inside a small hole, so you will need a pin to press and hold it for about 10 seconds.

Thanks for using Fixya!

I need to change the network name and password


Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed. From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router Manager, select Set Up > Wireless Settings. From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.

If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.
If you cannot log into your router: Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings. if there is a small hole in the front or back of the router push a hair pin in to reset to factory settings
Hope this helps don

I don't know how to set a password on my d-link router because my internet is insecure. How do i do this? I have the default username and password, but i don't know what to do from there.


1.Open your Internet browser and type in the default IP address for your DIR-625 wireless router: 192.168.0.1. A window will appear asking for your DIR-625 wireless router network name and password. If you do not know your existing network name, enter the default network name, "Admin." Leave the password blank. If you have already set up a network name and password, enter it now. Select "Log In."

2.Select "Wireless Settings" from the left-hand navigation bar. Put a check mark in the box marked "Enable Wireless."

3.Type your new wireless network name for your DIR-625 in the box labeled "Wireless Network Name."

4.Type your new password for your DIR-635 in the box labeled "Pre-Shared Key."

5.Select "Save Settings" from the top of the screen to save your new password.

I want to set up a secure netgear wireless connection


THIS IS A SUPER QUICK AND EASY FIX!


Use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.

  1. In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 by default.
  2. When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (admin; password) unless you have already changed it. NETGEAR recommends changing the default password to increase the security of your network.

    Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar.
  3. Under Wireless Network, enter your desired network name in the Name (SSID) box.
  4. Under Security Options, select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES].
  5. Under Security Options (WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK), enter your desired network password into the Passphrase box.
    • WRITE DOWN or KEEP NOTE of your network name, security option and passphrase - you will require them to connect wireless computers and devices to your network.
  6. Click Apply to save the settings

Wheres the security pin


You can find the security PIN on the device, at the bottom of the device. But if you are using Win Vista or Win 7, you can select the 2nd option on the page where it asks you for the PIN. The 2nd option would look like: I don't have the PIN, i would rather connect using using security key. This will be shown if you already have some security enabled on your wireless network. If its an unsecured network, The option would look like: I don't want to configure my network now, I just want to connect. Then you can connect with either the security or unsecured.

For further clarifications, revert!
Thanks for asking,

Hello I have a D-Link DR615 wireless issue. it automatic set to FREE wireless. why?I used to have password and also assigned a name for it. but now the Assigned name is NOT in the wireless network, instead...


Hello,

It seems as though your router was reset to the default settings.
In this case, you need to connect to the "DLINK" network and reconfigure the router.

If you have the disk, you can use that to run the setup, or you can log onto the router itself and configure the settings.

To log onto the router, open a internet window and type in 192.168.0.1 in the address bar.
This will log you into the router.
Now simply select "wireless" and then wireles security and you should be able to set up the password again.

Thanks,

Pat

Securing my wireless linksys BEFW11S4 ver. 4


Hello,

I’ll be pleased to help if I can. To answer your last question first, this router is already set up for wireless networking, so nothing further needs to be done with regard to that.

However, to prevent others using your connection, it's necessary to set up wireless security. There are four main steps, which are the same for most routers:

1) Login to your router, using a wired connection
2) Change the router login password
3) Change the network name (SSID)
3) Enable WPA encryption

Here are the details:

1) Login to your router, using a wired connection.
First, you will need an Ethernet cable to connect one of your computers to the router. This cable just plugs into a spare port on the back of your router, while the other end plugs into the Ethernet port on your computer (looks like this picture).

When you are connected, open a web browser on your computer. Type the router’s IP address into the address bar, which is http://192.168.1.1 for this model. (Note, there is no ‘www’)

You should then see a popup box, prompting you for a username and password. If these have not been changed, leave username blank and enter password: admin

If you log in successfully, you should then see the Linksys router configuration screen.

2) Change the router login password.
To set a new password, go to Administration > Management. Set and confirm a new Router Password. On this screen, I would also recommend that ‘Remote Upgrade’ and ‘Remote Administration’ are disabled. Click ‘Save Settings’ when finished.

(Tip: write the password on a label and stick it on the router, or keep it somewhere safe. )

3) Change the SSID (router name):
Go to Wireless > Basic Wireless Settings. Change the ‘Wireless Network Name (SSID)’ from the default, to anything you like, that you can remember. It is case sensitive, and you can use up to 32 letters –but do not use something that could identify you, or your location.

At this stage I’d recommend that SSID broadcast remains enabled.

4) Enable WPA encryption
Go to Wireless > Wireless Security. Enable Wireless Security. Under ‘Security Mode’ you have a number of options for encryption, but I would pick WPA-Pre-Shared Key, which is very secure and good for most equipment.

Under ‘WPA Shared Key’ you need to enter a network key. This is 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: 456the51stSTATeOFtheUSA1599 ). It is case sensitive. The stronger the network key the better, if you are very concerned about security.

Note down the network key carefully. You will need this to connect wirelessly. (The network key may also be called the WPA shared key, PSK, WPA-PSK, pre-shared key, security key, passphrase, or authentication key). Click ‘Save settings’ when finished.

That's it, you have done enough to secure your network, and can close the screen.

There are further security options to enable if you wish, but these three are the most important.

When you next connect wirelessly, you should see your network with its new name in the '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 you. Please come back to Fixya if this doesn't work, or if you need help with any of it.

How do i set a password?


Follow these rules for a secured WLAN
connect to your router as admin using Lan cable.
Set A router password. (if not already set)
Change your SSID from standard name
Consider do not broadcast SSID
In wireless setting select WPA-PSK security protocol
Create a Passphrase to be used as key (write it down)
save and use new setting in every connected device of this network.
I recommend first broadcast your network with WPA-PSK password.
Find your network with your clients (PC, Console, print server) use pw to connect in secured way.
Be sure to set client network properties to "connect to this network even if not broadcasting"
For increased security modify your network in Router to "No broadcast"
