Hi, The program is already set by default. Once into the set up [ please read instructions - it is easy ] - select security enable and then choose what type of security you want WEP is the most common. YES it is VERY possible but will require some reading on your part.

How do i make sure nobody else is using my internet without my permission?


You need to set up a network password to keep others from piggy-backing onto your internet connection and to secure others from accessing your data. I can walk you through the process if you give me your router''s manufacturer and model.

I just purchased a Acer Netbook 10.1 wireless. Do I need to enter a security code in order to get on the internet.


No, you do not need to enter a security code to get on the internet. You have to use an ethernet cable to connect the wireless router to your ADSL modem. Your wireless router should first be configured with an IP address that will allow it to communicate with the modem. However, if it works you should configure a security code on your wireless router to prevent others from connecting via your wireless without permission.

How to secure my internet connection via smc router


If you plan to have a wireless network, you should set it up so that only people you choose can access it. Here are a few options for wireless network security.

Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
WEP is a widely used network security method. When you enable WEP, you set up a network security key. This key encrypts the information that one computer sends to another computer across your network. The receiving computer needs the key to decode the information so that it's difficult for someone on another computer to get onto your network and access files without your permission.

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA)
WPA was created to improve the security of WEP. Like WEP, WPA encrypts information, but it also checks to make sure that the network security key has not been modified. WPA also authenticates users to help ensure that only authorized people can access the network. If your networking hardware works with both WEP and WPA security, we recommend that you use WPA.

There are two types of WPA authentication: WPA and WPA2. WPA is designed to work with all wireless network adapters, but it might not work with older routers or access points. WPA2 is more secure than WPA, but it will not work with some older network adapters. WPA is designed to be used with an 802.1X authentication server, which distributes different keys to each user. This is referred to as WPA-Enterprise or WPA2-Enterprise. It can also be used in a pre-shared key (PSK) mode, where every user is given the same passphrase. This is referred to as WPA-Personal or WPA2-Personal.

802.1X authentication
802.1X authentication can help enhance security for 802.11 wireless networks and wired Ethernet networks. 802.1X uses an authentication server to validate users and provide network access. On wireless networks, 802.1X can work with Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) keys. This type of authentication is typically used when connecting to a workplace network.

IF THIS ALL DOSEN'T WORK TRY THE FOLLOWING:

Wireless network security recommendations
If you have a wireless network, there are some additional security precautions that you should take.

Use a network security key
If you have a wireless network, you should set up a network security key, which turns on encryption. With encryption, people can't connect to your network without the security key. Also, any information that is sent across your network is encrypted so that only computers that have the key to decrypt the information can read it. This can help avert attempts to access your network and files without your permission. Common wireless network encryption methods are Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) and WPA-2.

Change the default administrator name and password on your router or access point
If you have a router or access point, you probably used a default name and password to set up the equipment. Most manufacturers use the same default name and password for all of their equipment, which someone could use to access your router or access point without you knowing it. To avoid that risk, change the default administrator user name and password for your router. Check the information that came with your device for instructions about how to change the name and password.

Change the default SSID
Routers and access points use a wireless network name called a service set identifier (SSID). Most manufacturers use the same SSID for all of their routers and access points. We recommend that you change the default SSID to keep your wireless network from overlapping with other wireless networks that might be using the default SSID. It makes it easier for you to identify which wireless network is yours, if there is more than one nearby, because the SSID is typically shown in the list of available networks. Check the information that came with your device for instructions about how to change the default SSID.

Position your router or access point carefully
Wireless signals can transmit a few hundred feet, so the signal from your network could be broadcast outside of your home. You can help limit the area that your wireless signal reaches by positioning your router or access point close to the center of your home rather than near an outside wall or window.

Router and internet down


Did they have physical access or was it just wifi access.
If they had physical access it's an easy matter to reset the router back to factory settings.
Use your D-Link manual to rest it back as it was with your ISP settings.

Need to find wireless security key in order to log on internet. Notebook is finding wireless network. However, I need a security code to be able to log on. Is there a way to find the surity code?


you cant find it without being connected to it.
is there another computer on the network that is working if so just get into the router and look under wireless or security and it will tell you the key.

to access the router on a wokring pc just goto start ....run......type "cmd" in the run text box and hit run it should bring up a command window that looks something like C:\documents and settings

type ipconfig and press enter

it should give you some info the default gateway is the router so if it says defualt gateway.......:192.168.1.1 then 192.168.1.1 is router

open internet explorer or other web browser and type http://192.168.1.1 or whatever the gateway ip is and hit enter and that should let you into router.

most default passwords on routers are admin/admin or admin with a blank pass or admin/password

The only way to reinstall the router is to hard reset it by pressing the reset button at the back of the router for about 20 seconds then do a power cycle. Unplug the power to the router and the modem for 30 seconds. Power on the modem first and wait for the lights to go steady, then power on the router.

The only way check if there are other users accessing the router is via the router's Admin Interface, under Status tab, Local Network subtab and click on DHCP Clients Table.

To make sure that nobody is accessing the router without permission, enable wireless security. On the admin interface of the router, go to Wireless tab then click on Wireless Security sub tab. Enable WPA-Personal on the security mode then save the settings

Lost my disk to install


don't need it...Just connect to it.  Linksys is bad about this too...telling you that you have to run cd before connecting to network.  Just connect to it.  There will be no problems..they just want their third party software on your comp.  The only cd you would need would be for the network card on one of the computers that's going to be on the network.  not the routers cd.
just run netowrk setup wizard or activate your wireless card and click connect to wireless network.  be sure to access the routers admin page via http://*gateway*   ie- http://192.168.0.1 and setup your security or people like me will use your internet without permission.
