SOURCE: D-Link DIR-625 - Unsecure connection

How do you know that you are connecting and there is no security? There first thing to check is the router settings. You should type into the browser 192.168.1.1 (or whatever you have configured your router's IP address for). Enter the user name and password for the router. On the next screen you will notice a link for wireless settings. Click this and on the new page check the bottom section that says "Wireless Security Mode". It should be set to something other than "none". Post back and let me know what it is set to.

SOURCE: HELP!!!!!! Trying to enable wpa-psk security on my laptop?

You should set the security on your computer wifi card to wpa-psk and then type in the securitycode which is written in your Zyxel Router.
If this is not possible with your networkcard, change to wpa or wpa2 inside the Zyxel. And do the same procedure with your networkcard, when detected the Router.

SOURCE: I am not able to connect my iphone to my home wifi

No, just like when you set up a wireless connection for the first time with a home network, you need to input the network key. As long as you have the key handy, it should work!! For example, when I connect my iPhone to home network, I see my network name "553c" and I "touch" that and it asks what kind of security it has (unless this has changed, my iPhone is 1st generation) so I pick WEP (you will pick WPA of course : ) )and then it prompts for the network key. Hope this helps!!

I want to secure an unsecured linksys 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

Everything is working fine but my signal shows 'unsecured'. How do I 'secure' it so that others cannot log on to my signal?


Login to your wireless router usually 192.168.0.1,
enter you username and password if required usually admin and password
click on network management,
then Wlan,
select encryption (sometimes security) WPA,
WPA Cipher suite select TKIP
WPA Pre-Shared Key - type in key you want
Before you do the next step write down the changes you have made.
Once you click confirm you will not be able to login to the router over wifi without the wifi key
Select confirm or apply changes.
In you computer rescan for wireless networks and when your router shows up click on it and enter the wifi key.
Everything should work.

How do I lock or secure the router; currently, my wireless connection comes up as "unsecured"?


Is there any computer connected to the router ?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router with the wireless computer.
you will need to connect the computer to the router with the Ethernet cable.

My Router works only if I do not put security password on it.


The router works only if the network is unsecured.
When you secure the wireless network , make sure that you will change the wireless network name also. Because if you change the wireless security and if you keep the same network name then your computer will try to connect to the same network name with the old unsecured settings saved on the computer.
Try to change the SSID ( network name ) and security to WPA, check if that works.
If that doesn't work then I believe you will need to upgrade the FIRMWARE of the router.

Cant hookup to wireless


The DS can only connect to unsecured wireless or wireless with WEP security. If your router is using WPA, the DS can not connect to it. I heard the DSi can use WPA but I have not confirmed that yet.

Note, I do not recommend unsecuring your wireless or using WEP. If you must use the DS wirelessly, it may be better to get a nintendo dongle/USB stick or another wireless router that you can lock down to prevent unauthorized access to your primary network.

Wireless connection


You will need to speak to the person in charge of the security enabled network, and obtain the type of wireless security (WEP or WPA) and the password.

You should also determine what security types are supported by your own laptop's wireless connection. If it is an older one, it may only support WEP, and you will be unable to connect to any WPA protected networks.
