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

How do i secure my router?


Use the following: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=638vxDkWYbk or use: First of all you need to access the router. Use the following:
Access the D-Link Configuration Screen
Open your web interface and type "http://192.168.0.1" into the address bar, then hit "Enter" or "Return."
Use "Admin" as the username and leave the password blank when the login screen appears.
Click "OK." You should now see the D-Link configuration screen.
Secondly, it would be better if only you could change the settings of the router.
Set Up General Security
Change your administrative password by clicking on the "Tools" tab and choosing the "Admin" button. Enter a new password under the "Administrator" heading. Confirm it, and click "Apply."
Disable the wireless Local Area Network (LAN) if you don't need to use the wireless access and you want to make sure no one else is able to access your network.
Under the "Home" tab, choose "Wireless" and select the "Off" option.
Last, is the answer to your problem. Follow:
Enable Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP)
Locate the "Home" tab in the D-Link Configuration screen, and click on the "Wireless" button.
Use the "Open System" button beside "Authentication."
Select the "Enabled" button next to "WEP," and set the encryption key to "128 bit."
Set the "Key Type" to "ASCII" and choose a 13-digit password for the "Key 1" field.
Write down the password in a secure location.

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.

Need security option


The security code is set in the wireless section of the router. You need to access the router's setup page and go to wireless. Under security you will see the encryption key which you need for your adapter.
The setup page is at 192.168.0.1. Put that in your browser.
It will open to the router's setup page.
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default the username is admin, and the password is password. Click the Ok button to log in to your router. Then go to wireless tab, then security.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
