How do i unlock my d link


The first thing you should do upon completing a wireless connection with a D-Link router is to set up wireless security by accessing the router settings. This protects you against computer hackers trying to gain access to your bandwidth to commit fraud against you or others. It also restricts access away from those who live around you that would rather use your bandwidth instead of paying for their own. Unauthorized users can drastically slow your network speed.

1.Enter the IP address for the D-Link router into a web browser. The default address is 192.168.0.1. This address is typically located underneath the router. Load the page to access the login details.

2.Enter the login details. Refer to your records if necessary. The user name is usually "admin." Enter in your password. A blank password is the default. Load the page to access the router settings. Note: It's important to set a password, if you haven't already done so.

3.Click on the "Set Up" hyperlink and then click on the "Wireless Settings" hyperlink.

4.Scroll down until you see "Wireless Security Mode" and select your desired level of security from the drop-down. The type of security you select depends on the electronic equipment you want to connect to your network and the level of security you want to enable. See Resources for details on the different types of security available. If you are still unsure, WEP offers a decent level of security and works with almost all Wi-Fi enabled components like mobile phones, gaming equipment and laptops.

5.Enter in your desired password into the "Password" field and then enter in the password a second time in the "Re-Enter Password" field. Select "Save Setting" to enable wireless security on your D-Link Router.

What are the specific directions to track websites that are being visited or emails by someone who is using my router to connect to internet?


Unless you are a network GURU, the best you can hope to do is enable security on your router to keep others outside your home from using it. But if you are trying to track websites from a computer in your home, you can check the history to see what websites they are visiting, by using ctrl+shift+h, in internet explorer.

Hi Friend,

Please follow the steps;

1.Open the router page(192.168.1.1)
2.Enter the username and password(default password is admin and leave the username blank)
3.Click Wireless and then fill the sections as mentioned:
Wireless-Enabled
Wireless Netowrk Name-As per your choice
Wireless Channel-6-2.442GHz
Wireless SSID broadcast-Enabled and click Save settings

4.Click Wireless Security and fill the sections
Wireless Security-Enabled
Security Mode-WPA pres-shared key (as you want non wep password)
WPA Algorithm-TKIP
WPA Shared key-Minimum 8 and maximum 64 digit password
Group Key Renewal-3600 and click save settings

Turn off the router for 30 seconds and turn it on after that. Now you have a non wep secured network

I hope this will resolve the issue.

Hi Judesbalsamo,

Apprently, when your dad updated the router, he much have enabled some form of wireless security. Either that, or he has changed the SSID name of the router altogther (which shouldnt affecrt muchm, just a change in router name). Either way, you might want to check back with your dad if he has enabled wireless security and get the details from him.

I hope the above information helped. Please do let me know if there are other queires regarding this. Also, pls remeber to vote for me if you find this solution useful. Thank you.

Cannot connect new laptop to wireless network. Belkin Wireless N


The wireless settings on the laptop and the router should match. To check the settings on the router you need to access the setup page by typing 192.168.2.1 in a web browser's address bar.

By default the password is blank.

Click the Wireless tab. And take note of the SSID or wireless network name.

Go to Security, then Wireless. If the wireless security is enabled, copy the network key or security key.

On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Security enable


Hi,
Just go to the connections in your wifi list and double click on your router, and enter your username and password.
You can Click the Automatically connect to this Network button too.
Otherwise, you can put 192.168.0.1 into your internet browser URL address bar and hit enter. This is the router's local IP address. Go to security and Disable WEP or WPA or whatever encryption is enabled.

Hope this helps

Chris (ziraffa)

ps also make sure the 'Wireless' button is clicked on your laptop and the blue wifi light is on!
