How do I set security on my DWL-952


There are 2 possible areas raised by this question. The first is a security patch needed to fix the firmware of your router, which by the way is not dwl-952. Your router is a di 954. Dwl 952 is a bundled router and network interface. The details of the firmware update are below.

Security patch for your D-Link router
These firmware updates address the security vulnerabilities in affected D-Link routers. D-Link will update this continually and we strongly recommend all users to install the relevant updates.
As there are different hardware revisions on our products, please check this on your device before downloading the correct corresponding firmware update. The hardware revision information can usually be found on the product label on the underside of the product next to the serial number. Alternatively, they can also be found on the device web configuration.
Please make sure you follow the firmware install guide provided within the ZIP firmware package.
DI-524 Revision E1/E3Thu, 28/11/13
The new firmware 5.13b01 that fixes the security vulnerabilities
DI-524 Revision Ex 5.13b01
Please note: please unzip the file and use the file DI524Ex_FW513B01.bin to update firmware.
DI-524UP Revision A1/A2Thu, 28/11/13
The new firmware 1.08b02 that fixes the security vulnerabilities
DI-524UP Revision Ax 1.08b02
Please note: please unzip the file and use the file DI524UPAx_FW108B02.bix to update firmware.

The second possibility is to set the local security on your network.

From the wikipedia page:
Wireless security is the prevention of unauthorized access or damage to computers using wireless networks. The most common types of wireless security are Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA). WEP is a notoriously weak security standard. The password it uses can often be cracked in a few minutes with a basic laptop computer and widely available software tools. WEP is an old IEEE 802.11 standard from 1999 which was outdated in 2003 by WPA or Wi-Fi Protected Access. WPA was a quick alternative to improve security over WEP. The current standard is WPA2; some hardware cannot support WPA2 without firmware upgrade or replacement. WPA2 uses an encryption device which encrypts the network with a 256 bit key; the longer key length improves security over WEP.
The complete article is here

Wireless security

Log in to your router and find the wireless security section. Set up the security model that best suits your needs and then set up your wireless network card with the same information.

HP Pavilion a6110n PC won't update windows driver KB2761494


Method 1: Disable the security software temporarily. Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you do have to temporarily disable it to install other software, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you are connected to the Internet or a network during the time your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks. Method 2: Place the computer in a Clean Boot state to see if there is any software conflict as clean boot helps to eliminate software conflicts. Note: After performing the troubleshooting steps in clean boot, follow Step 3 from the article to start the computer to Normal startup mode. Method 3: You can also install the updates (KB number) manually by downloading from Microsoft download center. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/default.aspx Method 4: Follow the steps from the article. How do I reset Windows Update components? Hope this helps

Change router to open


If you want to undo all settings on your router and have no security you can simply hold down the small reset button on the back of the router for as long as 40 seconds. This will remove all settings and reset the router to the way it was when you bought it.

NOTE: This is NOT recommended, as you will be vulnerable to viruses and spyware caught by other people using your wireless without your knowledge. Also, the use of your wireless by other people will put serious constraints on your bandwidth, which may hinder your internet experience.

Good Luck,

refrase your question...

if you had a security vulnerability that may have been exploited, you maybe dealing with a virus, if that is what caused or got your computer not to boot.. you need to reinstall the operating system, you can get someone to take the harddrive out and try to save the files your need out of your computer, then proceed with reinstallation.

hope that helps

I ran a Belarc Advisor test on my computer today. The score result was just 3.13 & fairly low. The Belarc Advisor performed a security audit of my system using the CIS Level-I benchmark appropriate...


OS means Operating System.

On your machine, disable Windows Firewall as it is known to conflict with Norton's Firewall and leave you disabled.

Also, go to windows.com click on the Continue Button start downloading Windows Defender and install it.

Then rerun your protection score and post back any change.

Belarc is not considered to be the software to own and use for benchmarking your computer's vulnerability.
