Router and internet down

Someone at my home tried to get access to my dlink router without my permission (I have a secure network). SOMEHOW (after many hours of trying) they got on and all of a sudden I had no more wifi and could not connect to the internet at all. Could this have been from them accessing without permission?

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.

Did you enter the security key (password)? It may be your laptop? Try resetting the D-Link to default settings and connecting to the laptop. They reconfigure the SSID and Security Key.

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.

Hello rennlugent, there can be "severals things" that may have cause the Computer to lose the "connection."

  • There may have been a 'change' in the Computer [Configuration Settings], without your 'knowledge'?
  • You may have 'Lost' the {Network File Sharing}, which 'Links' all the Computers to (1) one "Network?"
  • The Computer is at a "Different Local?"
  • It may be a "temporary glitch," do to weather change?
  • The "Signal" may be or was 'weak at the time?"
!Warning:
Installing "New" Programs, or 'any' kind of Software; can 'change "Systems Configurations"

I 'suggest' you check in (2) two areas:
The first is;
  • Click on the "Wireless Network Connection."
  • You may have {Two} on the "Taskbar" _809.jpg
  • See: if you are in "Network Discovery / Sharing [Mode].
  • Go to the "Network" shortcut, from the "Start Menu."
  • Check to make 'sure' you are "Sharing the Network Files."
  • The one from this {picture on the right}, is the "Connection [Status] Icon."
  • The {smaller, on the left, is the "Network Troubleshooting Icon"
  • Check (both); one for your Connection Status?
  • Click, on the other for "Fixing the Network Connection."
!Important: Check to make 'sure' the Connection isn't {Disabled}?

If this information helped? Return and give a "Helpful Rating," please!
Thanks, paul7of9

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.

Dlink DIR 615, network name changed, won't accept password


It appears your brother has changed your wireless router settings.
You can reset the Dlink back to the default settings by -
Power off the Dlink and press and hold the RESET button on the back of the Dlink and the power on the Dlink. Hold the RESET button for 5 secs. until the LEDs flash at the same time.
Connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Dlink. Open a browser and enter the Dlink's configuration URL
http://192.168.0.1
Default login = admin
PW = blank (just press Enter)
You can now change the admin password and set up a new passphrase (ie encryption)

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

Cant connect my laptop wirelessly...


Try to reconfigure your wireless network on your DI-524.

To access the configuration page of your router by Default type in on the address bar 192.168.0.1. On the login page by default the Username is admin and leave the Password blank.

If inside the the configuration page of the router

>Click Home
> Click on WIRELESS located on the left side and you will have the wireless setting of your network
> Change the wireless network name
> Under security choose either WEP or WPA -PSK for this type of router.
> Type in your new network key (also know as Passphrase of Key1).

For WEP use 0 to 9 Number or A to F character and it should be exactly 10 characters.
For WPA-PSK you can use alpha numeric from 0 to 9 and from A to Z. The minimun character would be 8.

> Click on apply
> Click on continue.
Try accessing your wireless network first using your wireless computer. If you are connected to your wireless network try connecting to the Internet.
