Not sure what exactly you meant to ask but if you have security setup on your router and you would like to set it to unsecurded here are the steps:
1. go to the router: 192.168.2.1
2. enter your user and password - default user is "Admin", password "1234"
3. on the left side click on "Wireless" -> "Security settings"
4. in the first dropdown select "Disable"

if you don't remember the password to the router then you will have to reset it by pressing the small hole on the rounter itself for 10 second.
note that you will reset all the router's configurations back to the factory settings.

How do i secure my connection so no one else can use it


Go into your router settings by typing 192.168.1.1 into your internet explorer window. By default the user name is left blank and the password is admin. Click on the wireless tab then the wireless security underneath that. If the security mode is set to anything other than disabled then you are already secure. If it is disabled then choose your security mode to set it up. I would use either WPA - personal or WEP.

How do I disable the "security" on my DIR-600 router?


Which security are you talking about? If you want to disable the wireless security simply click the wireless tab and next to security or where it has your security set it as none.

Thanks,

Cannot access wireless network using Sitecom 341N router - brand new - network showing up 100% strength but will not connect HELP please


If you have enabled wireless security on the router, make sure you are typing the correct network key. If you still can't connect, try to disable the wireless security first. If you don't know how to disable it, you may reset the router by presssing the reset button at the back for 30 seconds then unplug the power for another 30 seconds. You might as well disable any firewall on your computer like McAfee, Norton, Zone Alarm and the likes.

The wireless network is broadcasting but it will


Howdy,

Sounds like you may have an encryption problem. Are you running an open or secure network? Try setting it to Security > Disabled and see if you can get on. (Please note where you were before you disable the security) This will be under the Wireless > Wireless Security tab. If you can connect after disabling the security then you probably did not enter you key code correctly. OR... You may have set it to a level of encryption that your wireless laptop does not support. (Don't know the age of the laptop - some older ones will support WEP only and "b" only.) Make sure that you are broadcasting in both "b" & "g" ranges and if WPA won't work for you, then try WEP. It is a little difficult for me to tell you exactly what to do because I do not have all the necessary information but perhaps this will help. The main thing is to disable the security first and see if you can connect. If you can, then this is a BIG clue and good news. Then you know it is an encryption issue.

Typically the encryption choices are WPA - WPA-PSK - WPA2 - WPA2-PSK - RADIUS & WEP. I would recommend WPA-PSK with TKIP for normal "modern" applications. If your WRTP54G has the Auto Security setup button on the front of the router you may want to use it to automatically set up your wireless security. You can tell by feeling the raised rectangular push button on the front panel.

Good Luck!

Cant connect ps3 wireless to dlink router


The router should assign an IP address to your PS3 if it isn't manually configured. If you are connecting wirelessly make sure your security setting on your PS3 match your router. If the problem persists disable wireless security on your router and then try to connect with the PS3 with security disabled as well. Sometimes consoles have trouble connecting with WEP or WPA security encryption.

Wireless router


Security mode is DISABLED by default. In order to turn this on you need to go to the router configuration page. Go to http://192.168.1.1 in your browser and enter Admin for the username and admin for the password. Click on the Wireless button, then Wireless security. This is where you configure the security settings.
