Question about D-Link Wireless
I have a D-link wireless router which is currently working ok, but no security password or code has been put in place so my neighbours can access it!
This was because the set-up cd wouldn't work. I found a forum where others had found the same problem with connecting this router to Virgin broadband. Their solution was to forget the cd and simply reset the router. This worked, but it meant I wasn't able to add the security as part of the set-up. Suggestions would be most welcome!
There are plenty of default settings you can try. Generally the default username and password is included with your device on a pamphlet or manual or something similar.
Username: either Admin or Administrator
Password: either blank, password, admin, administrator, changeme, default, or test.
Hope this helps.

You can forget about the cd. You can access the configuration page of your router. Open your DOS PROMPT, type ipconfig then click enter. You will see there ip address and default gateway. The default gateway is in this form(192.168.x.x).Example:192.168.0.1
If you already know the default gateway, open your browser and type the 192.168.0.1 on the address field, it will take you to the router configuration page. You can then set your wireless security.

It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, 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.
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.
1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.
2. Set a recognizable system ID.
3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.
a. 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.)
4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.
