    Setting a password on your computers themselves only helps if they are physically in your house trying to type on your keyboard. I think what you want to do is enable WAP/WEP on your router. List your brand and model name/number and I'll see if I can't walk you through the process.

Hello, The default address for the dell truemobile 1184 is 192.168.2.1 If you have changed it and forgot, unplug the router (elec) for 5 seconds. This will reset it to default. The default SSID is "wireless". If a user ID and/or password is asked for enter "admin". Here you can change settings, enable broadcast, change SSID, enable WEP or WPA. Hope this helps.

I have wireless internet... but the internet only works when i have the cable in.. and when i take it out.. the connectin is gone... pluse when i go to conect to network i dont see my ip address.


For that you need to enable DHCP on router also enable wireless on router. You need to configure your router with below method. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 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. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. Then set WAN settings as internet service provider settings enable DHCP. .Click on wireless and enabled it. Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

How do I lock my Dell TruMobile 2300 wireless router to keep the neighbors from getting access to my wireless internet connection


press win key + r
under run type cmd
on the command prompt type ipconfig
not down your defaut gateway.
type it in your web browser, and then enter the correct user name and password for the router.(i u dont know the user name leave it blank or try admin for both user name and password or its combination o call dell for it)
Create a unique password on your router : Once you have logged into your router, the first thing you should do to secure your network is to change the default password* of the router to something more secure.
This will prevent others from accessing the router and you can easily maintain the security settings that you want. You can change the password from the Administration settings on your router’s settings page. The default values are generally admin / password.
Change your Network’s SSID name:
The SSID (or Wireless Network Name) of your Wireless Router is usually pre-defined as "default" or is set as the brand name of the router (e.g., linksys). Although this will not make your network inherently* more secure, changing the SSID name of your network is a good idea as it will make it more obvious for others to know which network they are connecting to.
This setting is usually under the basic wireless settings in your router’s settings page. Once this is set, you will always be sure that you are connecting to the correct Wireless network even if there are multiple wireless networks in your area. Don’t use your name, home address or other personal information in the SSID name.
This is sufficient to secure your router from other to use it.

I have a TrueMobile 2300 router and my security code is not working. How can I change it?


The only way to reset the password if you can't remember the old one is to reset the device. To load the Dell TrueMobile 2300 Wireless Broadband Router's default settings, hold down the reset button on the router for at least five seconds. While the unit resets, the Power light blinks.
Then navigate to the router through your browser and Type the following as your username:
admin
Type the following as your password:
admin
Click the OK button.
The Dell TrueMobile Setup Page appears.

Click the Advanced Settings tab.
Click the OK button.
Click the Administration Settings button on the left side of the page.
Put a check in the box to the left of the Change Your Password setting under the section of the page titled Password Settings.
Type the password that you want to use in the New Password field.
Retype your password in the Retype Password field.
Click the Submit button.
Another window appears stating You have successfully submitted the settings to this device!
Click the Save and Restart button.
Your new password will be saved into the router settings.

This will however wipe all your settings!

Cant change password and i dont have cd


Taken from another location.

Most routers use "admin" as the user name and "password" as the password.
(No quotes of course) Make sure the caps lock key is off.

If that doesn't work, try resetting it by holding in the reset button on the
back for 10 seconds (if it has one - I'm not familiar with that router).

Dell Truemobile 2300 - cannot connect to internet


This is usually a router configuration issue. The router has to be configured to match your new broadband settings.

For example, your old DSL may have required some kind of login which was entered into the router. For most broadband cable connections, you set the router to get an IP address automatically.

Re-run the router Setup Wizard. You can download it here:

Wireless security


Hi anthony - Could you please let me know the makes and model#s of the wireless pcs your running on your network. Also what operating system they're running. I just need to know because once you set up your routers' security you'll have to set up the wireless pcs with same security or they won't have access to the network. If you already know how to do that don't worry about it. Just thought I'd help you do that too. Just make a little list with one pc a line and each ones' info. Then I'll be happy to assist you. Thanks.
