Login in using your browser and go to the wireless settings and set-up a wireless password/key. Remember the key because each device will now need it to connect. You can also turn OFF Broadcast SSID and your network name will not be shown on anyone's device. You must remember the network name when using this method.

SOURCE: How to create a security enable router?

Firstly, confirm that your ISP connection for email and internet is working correctly. Then connect the router to the ISP using the ADSL plug, and to your computer using the ethernet connection. It is best to set up your router using a wired connection to your computer. Once set up, you can connect your computer using WiFi. Have your ISP username and password handy.

There are two steps to secure your router:

1. Change your ADMIN password. Using a web browser like Intenet Explorer, type in the address, http://10.1.1.1. This should take you to a sign-on screen. Username is "admin", and password is set at the factory as "admin". You should now be logged in to your router. Go to the TOOLS tab, and change your admin password. NOTE THIS DOWN FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.

2. Secure the wireless part of the network: Go to the HOME tab, and select either WEP security (good) or WPA security (better, but some devices like printers don't like this).

For WEP you will need to enter a 10-digit WEP key. Numerals will do, or you can use hexadecimal (base 16) notation if you know this. Numerals will do and are no less secure. NOTE THIS DOWN in a secure place. Click the "APPLY" button.

For the WPA alternative, you should select the "Pre-shared Key" radio button, and code in your WPA password in the "PSK String" field. This can be a word and or numerals. I don't think spaces or other characters are allowed. NOTE THIS DOWN in a secure place. Click the "APPLY" button.

That's IT!! You've changed the admin password and secured the wireless part of the network.

You will then need to code the WEP or WPA password into the devices like printers and computers that you want to connect to the WiFi. For Vista computers, right click on the network icon in the tray (two little computers overlapping) and select "Connect to a network". Enter the WEP or WPA password when you see SSID "default" or your SSID if you've changed it. Most printers have a connection wizard.

There is a further enhancement if you are really paranoid: change the SSID and turn off the SSID broadcast. Go to the manual at:

ftp://files.dlink.com.au/products/DSL-G604T-GenII/Manuals/DSL-G604T_GenII_Manual_v1.11.pdf

if you want further details. Good luck with your secure network.

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

D-Link DIR-625 - Unsecure connection


How do you know that you are connecting and there is no security? There first thing to check is the router settings. You should type into the browser 192.168.1.1 (or whatever you have configured your router's IP address for). Enter the user name and password for the router. On the next screen you will notice a link for wireless settings. Click this and on the new page check the bottom section that says "Wireless Security Mode". It should be set to something other than "none". Post back and let me know what it is set to.
