Question about D-Link DIR-655 Wireless Router
If your router isn't secure get one that is.Some routers are not secure.They rely on the user to secure the router's security codes.All routers come with a disc if it didn't it's a mickey mouse router.Install the disc again if you didn't do it before.Your PC should recognise it.Some operating systems don't recognise the router.Go to hardware in the control panel Where it says install a device click on it.Windows will check to see if a driver is available for your router.Go to the manufacturers website and download the driver for your particular router.IT will come up with boxes and you put in the model and serial number and it will search it's database for your driver.Good Luck.

box) of your Internet Browser. Every unit has unique access login and
passwords, some are admin with no password, some are admin and admin...seek
