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

How did someone connect to linksys unsecured wireless that has mac ids listed only - no othersmo


If you're running unsecured, then all someone has to do is capture the traffic with an easily obtained packet sniffing software while a legitimate computer is connecting to the router using it's filtered MAC address. Once they get the MAC address of a legitimate computer, "spoofing" or changing the attack computer's MAC address to broadcast the stolen MAC address is just a matter of changing an entry in the Windows registry on the attack machine.

I would go into the router and shut down the wireless for now and just use the hard wire. Leave the wireless OFF for a couple of days. When you bring it back up use WPA2 security.

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.

Change from 'unsecure' to 'secure' router


You don't need to install anything extra to secure the network. It's a matter of changing router settings. You set up the router through your web browser by going to "http://192.168.0.1" which accesses the device's setup screens.

There are several revisions of this product. Here is the URL for D-Link's selection page for the router:

http://support.dlink.com/products/revision.asp?productid=di-524

Click on the picture that shows the version you have, and then you'll be taken to the page for that version. You can download a manual or look through the FAQ's which will guide you through the process of setting up the security.
