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."
Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to network adapters should see a yellow question ? exclamationmark! or a red Xright click install drivers.

The driver might be on the disc supplied by your ISP internet service provider
or the motherboard disc

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 DO I LOCK MY ROUTER


Locking the router can be done by setting a WEP key. Its a 10 digit alphanumeric key that you can set. Once you set it up, anyone who tries to access your router wirelessly will be prompted for that 10 digit key. Be sure to change your SSID (wireless network name) also so that you can distinguish your own secured wireless network from others.

SSID can be changed on the main setup page.

1. To access it, open Internet explorer while your computer is physically connected to the router.

2. Type http:\\192.168.1.1 (the default IP address of the router.) It will ask you for the username and password.

3. Enter the word "admin" for both username and password. It is the factory default username and password. On the main setup page, you will find the field for SSID or Network name.

4. Type your unique wireless network name and click the Save button on the bottom of the page.

5. On the router's web-based setup page, click the Wireless tab then click the Wireless Security sub-tab

6. Click the drop-down arrow for Security Mode and select WEP.

7. Under WEP Encryption select 64 bits 10 hex digits.

8. Enter a unique word in the Passphrase field, then click Generate.

9. The result will be a string of letters and numbers displayed in the space provided for Key 1.

NOTE: Take note of what is in Key 1. This key will serve as the wireless security password. Keep this key confidential.

10. Click the Save Settings button.


From now on, whenever anyone tries to access your wireless network, they need to enter Key 1 which you only know. There you go. Your wireless network is protected.

I need to stop others outside using my internet


you need to turn on password based encryption (aka security) that will turn your unsecured wireless network into a secured one.
open a browser window and then type http://192.168.1.0 or http://192.168.1.1 and enter your router settings. change settings including password. unless you've set it up differently and actually have a username and password, leave the username space blank and use "admin" as the password. that's often the default password on a linksys. linksys has a great support page. they have the drivers, manuals, the works.
your specific page for the drivers and the manual for your router which includes specific info including password, setup procedures, explanation of the various settings, how to do a hard factory reset, etc. is here http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WET54G - click on the download button below the picture

Lost wep passphrase, can't navigate


There are two ways of going at this problem:
  1. Connect your computer to the router using an ethernet cable. Open up your router's configuration settings (the webpage used to setup your router). To do this, open a web browser, and type in your router's IP Address in the browser's address bar (i.e. 192.168.0.1). A window should pop up asking for a username and password. Enter your username, and password (if you haven't set a new password, the default log in is username:admin, password: (blank)), and then you will be brought to the webpage. Once you are here, look for the wireless-security area of the site, and go to it. Under this area, there should be a passkey/passphrase bar. You change it, or just see what it is.
  2. Use a wep passkey recovery software.

Can't connect to configure password through web address 192.168.0.50


Here is what you can do. You need to access the setup page of your Dlink Access Point.
1. connect a computer directly to the access point (via ethernet). Then assign an IP address on the computer (IP: 192.168.0.10 Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0 DG: 192.168.0.1 ). It is necessary for you to assign an IP address because your access point does not have the ability to assign an IP address to the a computer, its is not like a router.
2. After you assigned an IP address, you can now access the Dlink Access point's setup page. To do that open your browser in the address bar type http://192.168.0.50 (this is the address of your access piont) and it will ask you to put a username and password. Just type admin for both username and password field. And it will take you to the setup page of the access point.
3. To enable a wireless security, just click the tab on the left hand side that says Advanced, it will populate the options under Advanced and select security. On the main screen you will now have an option for security modem, you can select wpa-psk, then on the Key box you can type any password that you want (8-63 characters). Then click update there at the bottom of the page. If you also want to change the name that the Access point is broadcasting you can go to the on the left hand side that says Wireless and put any name that you want on the box that says SSID. After that click updat button again.
4. Now after updating the settings, You can reconnect to the network. And this time you will now be asked for the network key. Just type your network key. That's it.

Just reply to this post in case that you need more help.
