Make sure you have a password that isn't 'admin' Enable WPA or WPA-Personal (or better) encryption Obtain the mac address of your wireless devices, then enable mac filtering. Enter your devices into the list of allowed devices. OK to leave SSID broadcast on after you do these things if having it off makes devices not stay connected or fail to reconnect.
Here's a good guide:

The easiest way to do this is to follow the instructions that are in the product manual.
You can get this here:

Click on "Support Resources" and download the manual.

Read through the Configuration and Wireless Security sections.

It is fairly simple if you just follow the instructions in the manual.

Cant find security key

If it's your router, you made the key. If it's not your router, stealing internet is a federal crime.
If you cannot remember the key then reset router to factory defaults.

I forget my password i dont remember it how to open my facebook plss help me

In such a case you must click on forgot password and answer security questions and facebook will allow you to reset your password but you must correctly remember security questions.

In case you forgot your Facebook username and password, don't worry! Actually it is very easy to recover and retrieve (or even steal) them from you computer and without resetting and restoring any account! In fact, forgetting account passwords is so common that in the Internet there are dozens of free software which are devoted your life. I have already covered topics like this with tons of tutorials which explained to you how to recover your Google password, or how to get back your Router password and many many others. The free application I am about to show you is "specialized" so to speak with Facebook private login information, so download it right away and keep it at hand, just in case something goes wrong. Keep in mind that this application will also let you steal Facebook passwords from any computer. So please be careful when you use public computers. Remember to delete all your sensitive information as well as clear the cache of these public machines to prevent other people and bad-hackers from stealing your secrets! While using outside Wi-fi hot spots, also be-aware of the Firesheep Firefox extension which is able to steal any password send via wi-fi.

FacebookPasswordDecryptor is a free utility which recovers your Facebook password and username from the most famous web browsers such as Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Opera etc. and messenger. Basically it crawls software installed on your computer and as soon as it detects an encrypted Facebook password it will try to recover it. You have to know that majority of browsers use their own proprietary encryption mechanism to store the login passwords. However with FacebookPasswordDecryptor this won't be an issue anymore as such software manages to decrypt even the most difficult and secured scrambled , encrypted password...instantly!

Will not let me secure the router

Are you sure that the password is blank? I believe the default password for d-link is "password"

If that doesn't work you will need to do a factory reset with a paper clip pushed into the reset button for 15sec and then try logging in again

Hope this helps
