Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

On a computer that is connected to the router properly and has internet, you could use the disc there to set it up, or you can visit the router setup pages yourself by going to HTTP://192.168.11.1, the address could be different, the cd will find it for you, or you can find out by holding down the windows key, and then pressing R, then write CMD and click ok, on the black window write ipconfig and hit enter, buch of text appears on the screen, FIND default gateway. Now you can visit http://xxx,xxx,xxx,xxx

replace the xxx with the default gateways address.

You need to login to the router with your username and password, if you have not changed them, then read the user manual the default ones are written there, most likely root or admin and maybe 1234 on the password or just password.

Then you can go and change the network key to something else or possibly find out what it is.

NOTE that if you change the key all your computers need to be reconnected with the new password or they will all be offline until you have done so.


Please let me know if you require further assistance or if you have any questions.
Thanks,
Ekse

Did you enter the security key (password)? It may be your laptop? Try resetting the D-Link to default settings and connecting to the laptop. They reconfigure the SSID and Security Key. Write down the info for future use. Here's a user Manual: http://www.dlink.com/uk/en/home-solutions/connect/routers/dir-600-wireless-n-150-home-router

Your laptop should be able to automatically find the network name and security type. (You would have set up all of this, by the way.)
You should then type in your security key/password (you should have set this up when setting up router for first time, also) and then you should be connected to the internet.
Your laptop might not have wireless capabilities, so you might have to buy a wireless network adapter.

Router password is the password to access the router settings.
SSID is the network name. When you try to connect to the wireless network on your laptop, you will see this network name.
If your network is secured network then it will ask you for the network key or the password. You need to enter the ' security key '.

You must manually configure the wireless settings. Go to Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Networks. Remove all the listed network there. Then click Add > Add Network in Range > Select your signal > Type the security if you have and press connect. That should do it.

How to find "wireless network security key"


1) visit http://192.168.0.1

2) login using the username "admin" and leaving password BLANK

3) Once logged in, click on the wireless tab and it should have your wireless keys listed.

(this must be done while connected, so if all your computers are wireless, and you dont have the key, you must hard wire one computer and use it to do this.)

>Once inside the Dlink Page
>Go to setup and on the left side click wireless setting.
>If given the option to click on manaul wireless connection setup click on it.

>Using your laptop click start and go to "connect to" and click on your wireless network and connect to it and along the way it will prompt you to enter your network key or password. This would be the same as your passphrase or pre-share key type in your network key.
