Please enter the IP address of the Router in the internet explorer and enter the user name and password of the router.(admin, admin). When the windows will open go to wireless security. In that window you can give security option and security password.

Configuring dlink 1320


Wirelessly or cable ?
D-Link Router to an AT&T DSL Modem
With an always-on, high-speed Internet connection like DSL (Digital Subscriber Line), a router is a prudent addition to your local network.
It filters out unauthorized access to your network, which prevents an intruder from accessing computers that are connected to that network.
However, getting your computers, routers and modems on the same page may not work right "out of the box."
There are a few things you must be aware of, especially if this is a wireless network.

Unplug your DSL modem and D-Link router.
In order for the network to properly recognize its devices, these devices must be attached in a specific order.
Plug in your DSL modem's power cord.
There is usually no power button on a modem.
Simply plugging in its electrical cable will turn it on.
Give your DSL modem a couple minutes to re-establish its connection to AT&T's network before taking any further action.
Plug in your D-Link router's power cord.
Like the DSL modem, this router will probably not have a power switch; simply plug in the power cable, and it turns on.
Let the D-Link router sit for a couple minutes while it establishes its connection to the DSL modem and AT&T's network.
Physically attach your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Even if the router and modem are wireless, a physical connection must be established to properly configure the router.
If this is not a wireless network, then your setup procedure is essentially complete.
To access a D-Link router on your network, open an Internet browser and navigate to the 192.168.0.1 address.
This will bring you to your D-Link router's interface.
The default User Name is "admin" (without the quotes), and there is no password.
Enter the User Name and click the "Log In" button. This will bring you to the Setup window.
Refer to your D-Link router's documentation for changing the default password (highly recommended) and forwarding ports.
If this is a wireless network, you have a couple further steps.
First, change your network's SSID (Service Set Identifier) title, so that you can recognize it when other wireless networks are nearby.
Also, choose your wireless encryption and passphrase. WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) is a solid option.
Specific instructions depend on your model of D-Link router; so refer to your documentation (which can usually be found at the manufacturer's website if you do not have it on hand).
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer.
Your new wireless network should be visible with your computer's wireless adapter.
Windows and OS X will notify you of networks in range when your adapter is active.
Connect to the one with your SSID, and enter the passphrase.

Wireless Network D-Link
If you have a D-link wireless network, your computer is susceptible to outside intruders unless you take preventive measures to prevent intrusion.
There are some important settings that you need to change within your D-link control panel to add an extra measure of security.
By changing these settings, the intruders will have no other choice but to choose another computer to attack.

Type the router IP address, "192.168.0.1", into your Internet browser.
Press "Enter" on your keyboard.
Enter your username and password to log into the D-link configuration panel.
By default, the username is "Admin" with a blank password field.
To prevent outsiders from being able to access your D-link router's configuration panel, change the username and password to something more secure.
This can be done by selecting "Tools" from the menu and selecting "Admin."
Select "Administration Settings" and enter your new username and password.
Save your changes by clicking "Apply."

Enter the IP addresses for the computers you want to give access to your router.
You can do this by clicking the "DHCP" link underneath the "Home" tab. Click "Apply" to save the IP addresses.
Select the "Wireless" link underneath the "Home" tab.
Enter a name in the "SSID" field to identify your wireless network.

Choose "WPA" for your "Security" option.
WPA will provide the highest level of security for your wireless network. Create a WPA password to access your wireless network.
For maximum security, enter a combination of numbers, letters, and symbols.
Store your password in a safe place in case you ever forget it.
Click "Apply" to save your settings.

Install a software firewall program on your computer to add an additional measure of security for your wireless network.
A few of the popular firewall programs available are Norton Antivirus, McAfee and Zone Alarm.

How to secure a wireless network, access point, or router


Once you have setup your wireless router, it is a good idea to secure it, so that attackers have a harder time getting to your network (if they can get to it at all), and so that people cannot steal your internet, and possibly slow your connection's overall speed. Here are some key tasks to preform in order to secure your network:
  • Disable SSID Broadcast - Doing this makes your network virtually invisible to other devices looking for a connection
  • Change SSID - Most hackers/attackers know the default SSID for routers. Changing it will make it harder for them to guess your network's name (and knowing the SSID can be half the battle).
  • Enable Encryption - This makes it so that you need a password to connect to your router wirelessly. Obviously, setting a password makes it harder for a hacker/attacker to access your network. (I suggest setting a WPA2-PSK rather than WEP, because WEP is able to be cracked)
  • Change Router's IP Address - This is another default setting that hackers/attackers find useful. Changing this, just like changing the SSID, will make it harder for people to figure out your network's address (which would give them a better opportunity to change the settings on your router, just as you are now).
  • Change Router admin password - If someone somehow gets onto your network, doing this will make a last line of defense against a person changing your router configurations.
  • Enabling Wireless MAC Filtering - Doing this will allow you to prevent or allow a specific device or devices connection to your network. (note: not recommended for the regular house hold, because it can be a big hassle for connecting new devices)
Though similar in features, each device has a different way of go about these tasks. If you need further assistance for your particular device, or have any other questions, please feel free to contact me.

After preforming these tasks, your network will be much more secure. I am looking forward to getting feedback on this guide.

My ipad 2 will connect but the load time is very slow


Your throughput (speed) is limited by the speed of the service from your provider. Additionally, this speed is divided or shared with every device connected via network cable and devices that are connected wirelessly, too.

To make matters worse, while the wireless N standard provides a faster speed, it only does so at a closer distance. When further away from the router, you may actually get better speed by connecting to the G side of the router (assuming you have G enabled).

Proper router configuration is key. Make sure you haven't locked it down to a slow speed. Install additional wireless access points or upgrade antennas with those that offer higher gain to provide good coverage in your home / space. Locate the wireless routers and access points closest to the areas these drevices will likely be used. Avoid installing in basements, behind brick and concrete walls. Aluminum siding can thwart a signal pretty well, too. Unplug / replace cordless phones that run on 2.4GHz - they can rob bandwidth from your router in the form of interference. Select Ch 1, 6 or 11 for the least interference from other wireless devices as long as they are not already in use by someone close by. Protect your WiFi by NOT broadcasting your SSID and be sure to lock it down with WPA or WPA2 security and a password that does not appear in the dictionary. This will help keep others from stealing your WiFi bandwidth.

All of these suggestions will either increase your throughput / speed or provide additional security and prevent others from stealing your bandwidth. I hope they help!

How do I prevent my neighbor from using my wireless router?


If you do not have any wireless network security enabled on the router, your neighbor can see this SSID and connect to the network without authorization. While this is generally frowned upon as being unethical, it is technically not illegal as you have "made the network available" by failing to secure it. The easiest way to secure the network is through the use of a WEP key or a WPA pass-phrase. WEP keys are generally 5, 10, 13 or 26 randomly generated characters long. WPA pass-phrases are just that - a phrase such as "The sun is yellow". Either method will prevent unauthorized users from accessing your network. Only those individuals who possess the key or pass-phrase are granted access.

These options is located under the Wireless > Wireless Security tabs from within the router administration.After login you can change the password.

Where is the network security key


The network security key is set by the user when the home network is setup. It prevents people from stealing your wireless signal. If you have forgot it, or didn't set it up but it still is asking for one, you can unplug and hit the reset button on your router and delete the home network you have on your main computer. From there, just run the network setup wizard from the main pc and set your network security key to something you can remember as well as write it down. Then you should be set to add any other pc to your home network as long as when you try to connect, you put the correct key in.

How to set my wireless into private ?


Hi,

You can make the network secure putting a password with it. You need to access the Wireless Settings Page of the router. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is admin and the password is password. Go to the Wireless Settings Page, Under Wireless Security Mode you can select either WEP,WPA or WPA2. Then Personalize your Network Key. The Network Key serves as a password on your network to make it secure.

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

  1. Open an Internet explorer and type the router IP address which would be either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 (by default, refer to your product documentation ti determine the default IP address.) in the address bar and press Enter.
    The Login window will be prompting for a Username and Password. The default Username is admin and the default Password is password
once you see the setup you can configure and change the name and security of your network
to find out which one is your network place the router as close to the laptop/desktop so that u get a strong signal
