Usually you check the wireless router 's ip address witch is im most ways in the http;//192.168 way , it should also be in the manual. The manual is also needed to gain access most it is typed by admin (as user name) and ******* as pasword.

sometimes (more often as you might think) people seldomly change the default password . if you are in the menu of the router go to secrutiy tab and check the settings or set them , do not forget to save and write down the settings how they where and how the are now

These settings prevents unauthorized access to your wireless network and Internet. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.

Can not connect to internet thorough my dlink 614 router It tells me the internet security key is incorrect even though i know it is not


Hi,

Please access the web interface of the router and confirm the security key. Also, you can try to change the security key. It can be a possibility that your computer is not synchronizing properly with the current security settings.

If you find that you are putting the right security key then please change the security type to wep 64 bit or wep 128 bit and configure a new key. Also, change the SSID or the network name and try to connect.

In case of any issues please let me know which windows you are running and the security settings on the router.

Thanks,

Rashish

How do I secure my Dynamode BR 6004 WG1 Iam a


To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, you need to at least configure the wireless router with encryption, and the SSID, and change the router's default login password.
Please follow these instructions :-

To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA). The encryption key can be easily set up using a passphrase (it can be an alpha numeric phrase or words).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.
To access the Internet you need to connect the DSL or cable modem to the WAN (Internet) port on the wireless router.
