There are 3 ways to secure your wireless connection. You may implement more than one for additionnal security.

1. Enable encryption such as WPA or WEP. WPA is better, if your wireless router supports it. Otherwise, WEP 128-bit or more is acceptable. Only those who have the key you will set will be able to connect.

2. Disable SSID broadcast. This will prevent your wireless network from being visible when someone browse the available networks in your area. However, you will have to configure your prefered wireless network manually in your computers because they will not be able to discover your network anymore. This is a one time configuration. After disabling the SSID broadcast, change your SSID because, if you don't, the people who are currently using your wireless access without your conscent will still be able to connect because they already know the SSID.

3. Enable MAC filtering in your router. This will only allow your own computers to use the wireless connection, blocking anyone else. The down side of this restriction is that if you have a friend who bring his laptop or other wireless device to your home and wants to use your wireless connection, you will have to add its MAC address to the list in the router's configuration.

In priority, you should implement the first of the three. Look in your DI-524 manual to see how to implement those features, it is well documented.

If you lost your manual, go to http://support.dlink.com/downloads/ and choose your model. The link to the manual will be at the left of the screen.

I have a 2wire gateway modem/router and i need to reset it, but i dont have the default password located on the bottom of the modem/router because it fell off. I need to find out what the default password...


Open your Internet browser.
Type http://gateway.2wire.net/setup into the browser's address line.
You should see your key on the setup page.



Back-Up Key Codes

In most cases, you will receive a key code from your ISP. This key code is used to activate the 2Wire gateway. If you did not receive a key code, you can use the key codes provided in the following table.

If your Internet Service Provider did not provide you with

a user name, password, or IP address to set up your

Internet connection, your broadband connection most

likely uses DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)

and you should use this key code.

52EU-2374-2262-22AT-B222


If your Internet Service Provider gave you a PPPoE

username and password to set up your Internet

connection, your broadband connection uses Point-to-

Point Protocol over Ethernet and you should use this key

code.

52EU-2374-6262-22AS-B22Y


If your Internet Service Provider assigned you an IP

address to set up your Internet connection, your

broadband connection uses static IP (Internet Protocol)

and you should use this key code.

52EU-2374-2E66-22AS-B2TW


If your Internet Service Provider gave you a PPPoA

username and password to set up your Internet

connection, your broadband connection uses Point-to-

Point Protocol over ATM. In this case, you would use this

key code and Microsoft Dial-up Networking to connect to

the Internet.

Hello.... i bought a nokia 6230 from the internet and i need a security code thank you


Hi,
Please don't try more than 3 times.If you try more than 3 time your phone will get locked and you have to flash the software of your phone to get it.The security code cannot be given by anyone easily.It is internationally a big crime to give security.The security code is usually used to prevent others from stealing the phone or prevent persons from lost cell phone.The security code is based on the IMEI
no of your phone.Only the service provider of your phone can give the security code.Please call the service provider of your mobile.And ask him to provide the security code.He will ask you some basic details like name,date of birth for his verification.And he will provide you the security code.Or please contact your mobile retailer that is your mobile manufacturer service center and ask him to provide the code.He will verify on whose name the mobile is bought,and provide you the code.This is done for free of cost..

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

I need the restriction code for a LG c2000 cell phone


HI

A restriction code is numeric code (password) that prevents a user from accessing certain technical settings of a phone. It is specifically designed to prevent a phone from being reprogrammed to work with a different carrier (service provider).

This is what is usually meant when a phone is referred to as "locked". There are also "unlocked" phones that can be reprogrammed to work with a different carrier.

The reason for this system is the way phones are often sold. Many phones are sold below cost, (at a loss to the carrier,) with the expectation that the money will be recouped in the cost of the monthly service plan. The up-front loss that is later recouped is called a Subsidy.

For this to work financially for the carrier, the user must not buy the phone and then use it with a different carrier. The MSL makes that nearly impossible.

Unlocked phones are ususally much more expensive than locked phones, because there is no subsidy to offset the cost.

You should ask the operator for the restriction code

How do i make my speedstream 6520 wireless?


"If your PC has not been connected to a broadband modem or other network device, you will need to
perform the PC configuration procedure below. Remember to restart each PC when finished. If your
PC has been connected to a broadband modem or other network device, continue to the “Using the
Wireless Connection” section below.
1. Start your Web browser. In the Address box, enter the following: »speedstream.
2. Press Enter. The SpeedStream Simple Setup Wizard will launch.
3. When prompted, enter the Internet connection information provided by your
Internet Service Provider.
4. At the end of the Setup Wizard, you will be given the option to either connect to
the Internet or further configure the optional settings of the gateway.
5. If additional configuration is desired, select the icon for the service or option
you wish to configure: the gateway’s firewall and security settings, User
Profiles and content filtering, or home network options."

"Using the Wireless Connection
By default, the SpeedStream® Gateway is configured to work
seamlessly with other SpeedStream® wireless products. The default
wireless interface settings are:
SSID: SpeedStream
Channel: 11
Mismatched wireless settings will prevent successful
wireless network connections between devices, so
you may need to reconfigure some wireless settings
to ensure that all settings match between wireless
devices if you are:
a) Using another manufacturer’s wireless products
b) Adding the SpeedStream® Gateway to an existing
wireless network
The Setup Wizard will walk you through setting up wireless settings."

Sign in pbm in yahoo


I no longer use mozilla, but I think it probably has something to do with your internet settings. Is all other browsing okay? Do you use other chat or messenger programs? I would go to Internet options or settings, wherever that is on mozilla (on internet explorer, it is on the toolbar under "tools") and have a look and see what your settings are it could be that you have a setting that prevents use of messenger or chat services. It may be in your securtiy settings or your content settings. Also, you might check your virus control program to make sure that settings there have not changed. You will find a section there for internet settings where you can stop viewing of certain sites. Something may be stopped there.

If this does not help, can you get to yahoo (email or messenger?) You may have to get a new ID. not fun I know, and we will leav that as the last option.

Please let me know if this does not work for you. I am going to go have alook at the mozilla browser again and see if I can help you more.

There are two codes for the security of the MOTOROLA L6, the unlock code which is usually 4 digits and is set originally to '1234' and the security code which is 6 digits and set at the factory to '000000'. These codes are the same across the world unless a specific service provider decides to change them.
• To change the unlock code, you can go to NEW PASSWORDS by going to the SECURITY option in the SETTINGS menu. The phone will prompt you to enter UNLOCK code, Put in '1234' or the last 4 digits of your phone number and if both don't work, try the security code 6 digit number.
• If you lose the other codes like SIM PIN code, PIN2 code, cell barring password and even the SECURITY CODE, these can be reset by only the service provider.
• You can prevent others from misusing your phone locking it when not in use. This is achieved by selecting LOCK NOW in the PHONE LOCK options in the SECURITY menu
• Choosing AUTOMATIC LOCK to ON in the PHONE LOCK menu will lock the phone automatically whenever it is turned off.
• A locked phone can receive phone calls but will need to be unlocked using the code to be answered
• There is also a simple way to prevent accidental pressing of keys by locking the key pad using the main menu soft key followed by the '*' key in quick succession.
