Problem with D-Link 1360 n access point. Not able to visit ip address 192.168.0.50


The internal Wi-Fi radio is enabled by default on most new wireless routers.
However, if you purchased a D-Link router used, you may find that the internal radio is disabled because the previous owner had an exclusively wired network and wanted to eliminate the possibility of a hacker breaking into one of her computers.

Enable the Wi-Fi radio on your D-Link router to enable your computers to connect to the Internet wirelessly.

Connect the router to your computer using an Ethernet cable.
Open a web browser and browse the IP address "192.168.0.1."

Enter the username "admin" and leave the password blank.
Note that these are default values; both the user name and password can be changed.

Click the "Setup" tab at the top of the screen, then click the "Wireless Settings"
Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click the "Manual Wireless Network Setup" button.

Place a check in the box labeled "Enable Wireless" and click "Save Settings."

D-Link Wireless Router

D-Link routers use the connection from your Internet service provider to create a wireless network for the various Wi-Fi- enabled devices in your home or office.

Once the router is installed, you can truly enjoy the portable capabilities of your laptop or other wireless device.

D-Link routers have a straightforward installation process, despite the advanced technology behind wireless equipment. So there is no reason to wait around for a technician to help you install your wireless equipment. Remove the cable that is attached to the "Internet" port on the rear of your DSL or cable modem.

Plug the Ethernet cable into the "Internet" port on the modem and plug the other end of the cable into the "Internet" port on the rear of the D-Link router. Attach the power adapter to the port on the rear of the router and plug the adapter's cord into a outlet.

Remove the power cord from your modem and wait 10 seconds before plugging it back in.
This will reinitialize your modem and force it to establish a connection to the D-Link router.

Your router will immediately begin distributing a wireless network with the "D-Link" network name.

Connect your computer to one of Ethernet ports on the rear of the router and open a Web browser.

Type "http://192.168.0.1" into the address bar and press "Enter." Enter "admin" into the username field and type "admin" again into the password field.

Click "OK" to open the wireless configuration page. Click "Wireless Security Setup Wizard" to create a wireless password for your router's network.

Click "Apply" to save the changes to the router's settings.
Network D-Link wireless

Type the router IP address, "192.168.0.1", into your Internet browser. Press "Enter" on your keyboard.

Enter your username and password to log into the D-link configuration panel.
By default, the username is "Admin" with a blank password field.

To prevent outsiders from being able to access your D-link router's configuration panel, change the username and password to something more secure.

This can be done by selecting "Tools" from the menu and selecting "Admin."
Select "Administration Settings" and enter your new username and password.

Save your changes by clicking "Apply."
Enter the IP addresses for the computers you want to give access to your router.

You can do this by clicking the "DHCP" link underneath the "Home" tab.
Click "Apply" to save the IP addresses.

Select the "Wireless" link underneath the "Home" tab.
Enter a name in the "SSID" field to identify your wireless network.

Choose "WPA" for your "Security" option.
WPA will provide the highest level of security for your wireless network.

Create a WPA password to access your wireless network.
For maximum security, enter a combination of numbers, letters, and symbols.

Store your password in a safe place in case you ever forget it.
Click "Apply" to save your settings.

Install a software firewall program on your computer to add an additional measure of security for your wireless network.

A few of the popular firewall programs available are Norton Antivirus, McAfee and Zone Alarm.

How to block people from useing your router


You can set up a password to access your wireless network. Please follow these steps in order to enable wireless security:
  1. First you must open any web browser on a computer connected to your network (I reccomend plugging in your computer directly to your router using an ethernet cable instead of using a wireless connection for this process.)
  2. In the URL bar type in the IP address of your router (most likely 192.168.1.1). If that is correct you will see a log in screen.
  3. At the log in screen input your user name and password for the router. If this is your first time configuring your router input the default user name and password (most likely "admin" for both.) If you are unsure of your user name and password you can find the defaults at this website: http://www.routerpasswords.com/. If the default does not work you may have to reset your router to factory default by depressing the reset button on the back of your router for 10 seconds (WARNING: this will reset all previously configured settings on your router.)
  4. Once you have logged in navigate to the Wireless or Security tab, depending on your router.
  5. Under security type select WPA2 Personal (some older wireless devices will not be compatible with this setting, if you have older devices use WEP)
  6. Create a passcode for your wireless network and select Save at the bottom of the screen. If you are currently on a wireless connection you will be kicked off so make sure you write the passcode down before you save.

Congratulations! Your wireless network is now secure and only people you have given the passcode to can access your wireless network.

How do i set up secured network?


set-secured-wireless-network-netgear-800x800.jpg Set up a Secured Wireless Network on Netgear Photo is inappropriate for this article Submit

A wireless network is comprised of a wireless router, a computer (or other wireless-enabled devices), a high-speed modem, and a subscription to an Internet Service Provider (ISP). Netgear is a popular manufacturer of wireless networking hardware that allows users to set up a secured wireless network. In order to prevent unauthorized users from logging onto your wireless network to gain access the Internet, and in order to protect the data you transmit and receive online, you should change your wireless router's security settings to create a secured wireless network.

1 Install the router. To install a Netgear wireless router, use an Ethernet cable to connect the router to the cable/DSL modem and use another Ethernet cable to connect the router to your computer. Make sure all of these devices are powered off as you connect them. Once connected, turn on the cable/DSL modem, the router, then the computer, in that order. Allow at least two minutes to pass after turning on each device to give the devices time to recognize one another

2 Log in to the router. Open a web browser and type in the router's address to load the router's settings page. The router's address can be found in the user guide or setup CD that came with your router, or you can download a user guide from Netgear's technical support page (see Resources). Most Netgear routers use one of the following addresses: http://192.168.1.1; http://www.routerlogin.net; or http://www.routerlogin.com. Press "Enter" or click "Go" in your web browser after you have entered the address.


3 Enter the router's username and password. A prompt will appear on the screen when you enter your router's address, requiring you to enter a username and password before you can access the router's settings page. The default username for Netgear routers is "username" and the password is "password." Because the textboxes are case-sensitive, you must enter both of these using all lowercase letters. Press "Enter" to log in to the router and begin changing its security settings.

4 Open the security settings menu. The router's home page has multiple links for changing settings. Find and click the "Security Settings" link to change the router's security settings.

5 Change the SSID, choose an encryption setting and create a password. The default name (or "SSID") of your wireless network will be "NETGEAR." Enter a new, memorable name for your wireless network to help detract would-be hackers from trying to access your router, as most novice computer users with unsecure networks do not know how to change the default network name or institute any other security features. Newer Netgear routers offer WPA or WPA-PSK encryption to secure your network, both of which provide high levels of security. Select either of these. encryption types and create a unique password. This will require all users to enter the password before they can log in to your wireless network. It is important that you create a complex password that has several characters, including numbers. Once you have created a password, click "Confirm Password" to save it. To exit the security settings menu and log off of the router, click "Save" or "Apply" to save the changes you made, then click "Logout" to exit the route



Things You'll Need

* Netgear wireless router
* High-speed Internet service provider (e.g., Comcast, AT&T, Insight)
* Cable/DSL modem
* 2 Ethernet cables
* Computer
* Web browser
* Router address
* Router's username and password

Good Luck : ) ....

How to set a password?


  • Access the router's default configuration address through your Web browser by entering this address: http://192.168.1.1 (see Resources). Do not enter a user name. Enter "admin" for the password. That process works for all new Linksys routers. If you have changed the user name or password in the past, use the user name and password that you created.

  • 2

    When the configuration screen opens, click on the "Wireless" tab and select "Wireless Security" to view the router's current security password. The "Security Mode" field will say "Disabled" if you do not have a password to secure your network.

  • 3

    Select the appropriate encryption type from the "Security Mode" drop-down menu. Linksys routers offer WEP and WPA encryption. WPA encryption allows you to use a single password to access the network. WEP encryption creates 10- or 26-character keys that act as your password. Some of your wireless devices may only utilize a certain type of encryption. Determine which protocol is best for your network.

  • 4

    Enter a password that will be required to access the network. For WPA encryption, you can write your own password. For WEP encryption, click the "Generate" button to create passwords that can be used to access the network. Write down your passwords and keep them in a secure location.

  • 5

    Click "Save Settings" to confirm your changes. Your network will now be secured and will require a password for access.

  • 6

    Click the "Administration" tab to create a password to access the router configuration page itself. Be sure to change the password from the default "admin." Reenter the password for confirmation in the next field. Click "Save Settings" to confirm your new password.
