Question about D-Link Wireless

D-link wireless router

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!

    Thanks for this solution, but I'm haven't been able to fix this. When I put in the ip for the configuration page I get a username and password box, but I haven't a clue what these are. I've tried using details that have been associated with the router before, but they don't work, so I'm not sure what to do now...

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.

try these

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.

Good Day

Dont i need a password so my neighbours cant use my wifi


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

How do i secure and place a password on this linksys unsecured wirerless router


Wireless Router


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.

How to use the wireless key


Hi,

Wireless keys are like your secret password. Provided you have a wireless router and wireless devices to access internet - You might want to secure the wireless signals emitted by the router to ensure that your neighbour is not using free internet :-). So all you do is access the router's setup page and under wireless tab enable the wireless security feature.

Wireles security generally of two types
- WEP
- WPA

select the one suits best to your network and save the changes. once you are done with the router - you will now search for wireless network from your computer/s and select the network. The router will now ask you to type the password (the one you eariler entered on the router). Enter the correct password and you will be connected. Now your neighbours can see your network but cannot access it unless you share your password with them.

Security when using wireless router


You'll need to log into your router to set up a wireless access code. If you still ahve the users manual, use that as a guide, and you'll need it for the IP address that will allow you to connect to the router. It's a string of numbers such as 192.168.0.1 that you'll put into your address bar in your web browser. You'll then be promted for the routers default user name and password, which should also be in your users manual.

Securing my wireless network DIR615


the password you entered should prevent people from using yor network unless they have the password. Your network will still show on other peoples settings when they check for networks to connect to, but now you have added a password for your router it should say secured next to it when they try to use your network it will ask them for the password - pin - etc... and if they do not have it then they should not be able to access your router. Why not try to see if one of your neighbours can still access it now you have protected it with a password.
