Now we will secure you wireless connection to prevent others from connecting. Under the Home tab, click the Wireless option from the left.
Beside the SSID option, enter the name for your wireless network connection.
Beside Security, select WPA. If you can’t connect using WPA, then select WEP. Using WPA will provide a much more secure connection that using WEP. For more information about WEP and WPA please read Wireless Security: WEP and WPA.
Click AES beside the Cypher Type.
Make sure PSK is selected beside PSK/EAP.
Now you must get very creative. Specify a long Passphrase with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Once again, please read Creating Secure Passwords for tips on how to do this. In this case the longer the better.
Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
Enter your passphrase next to Passphrase and again beside Confirmed Passphrase.
Click Apply to save your security settings.
Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your Passphrase exactly as you specified it. I won’t go into detail on how to connect to your wireless network, as I will save that for another post.

Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router. These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop. If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements. The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key. The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits. Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988. The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop,configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wirelesssettings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptopscan communicate with your wireless router.
log onto the router... put in address bar in Internet explorer 192.168.1.1 and put admin as the user and password or admin as the password. you should be able to see the passphrase and network keys under the wireless section.
You can put in your wireless code by connecting to the DI-524 using the LAN cable. Open you web browser (Internet Explorer) on your computer, and type in the address http://192.168.0.1 This should take you to the sign on screen for your DI-524. user ID will be "admin" and password is blank unless you have changed it. Go to the "Wireless" button on the left. There you can specify the type of wireless security you want and the secret code. The most simple security is WEP, with 64bit WEP encryption, and "Open System" authentication. Enter a 10 digit numeric code in "Key 1". You don't need to fill our the other keys. NOTE the number down for future reference.
the security passkey or passphrase will be found on the router user interface. if you are also using a linksys wireless router...you can try this out..
1. open internet explorer...type 192.168.1.1 on the address bar and hit enter.
2. it will ask you for a password, default username and password for a linksys router is username - nothing, password - admin.
3. go to the wireless settings tab and wireless security tab then look for the password.
