    securing your computer and making sure your internet/wifi is secure so others cant access your network/internet are 2 different issues most routers have security enabled by default on them you would just need to know if yours was ever turned off, do you know the type of router you have and what version of windows/mac might you be running?

I own a dance studio? How do parents watch their ballerina from a TV in the stents Louge?


A couple of options depending on your situation. If the lounge has a smartTV, one that can access the Internet, your simplest would be to purchase a wireless camera, D-Link is one brand and under $100 at Staples, Costco, Bedt Buy, etc. You would also need access to wireless internet in your studio. You set up the camera with name and password and set up the free hosting via a D-Link website. Once the camera is configured, you log onto the website via the smartTV, put in the password and you can watch the camera feed. This can be set up so parents could even watch from home or Grandma from the care home. All anyone needs is a computer or tablet to access the Internet.
Other options include a wired camera where u run wires from camera to ,TV. all depends on your requirements and DIY capabilities.

I need to lock the signal in my computer so people will stop using it in my building


Hi,

You can change or setup a password for your router so that other people cant connect or use your internet connection. For you to setup your own password you need to access the router settings page and for you to access that you need to type 192.168.1.1 to he address bar of your browser and it will ask you for a username and password. The default username is "leave it blank" and the default password is admin. If you want to personalize the password of your wireless connection go to the Wireless Settings Page. Set the Security Type to WEP, WPA or WPA2 and put a personalize Network Key or Passphrase. Network Key serves as a password on the network so that the connection is secured.

Rate me if this helps so that i can help other people like you

I cant put a security password on my wireless,so others cant use it


I believe you want to put a security password on your wireless router. That depends on the type of hardware you have, better check with your ISP for specific instructions. Or you can also visit the wireless router manufacturer website.

I put a password on my linksys router and cant seem to get internet access to my other computer laptops and ipods even if we put password what am i doing wrong


You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
If your network is secured then make sure that you are typing the correct network key.
also make sure that the DHCP server is enabled on the router.
is there any computer connected to the router ?
what is the operating system on the computer ?
WPA2 security type will not work with windows XP.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.

Cant find wireless network


Hi first my question is if the wireless setting is secured. If it is you have to enter the wep key or passphrase to the laptop. if you don't know what is the wep or passphase you may open the web browser and enter this ip address 192.168.1.1 and the user id is admin but this time you have to find out the password. wants that you get in click the wireless security tab and the info is there. Wants that you have enter this info to your new laptop this is will work. Also you may do is right click the network connection, click the property. click internet protocol (TCP/IP) click property and make sure that the setting is on obtain an ip address automatic then click close. I hope this info will help you solve the problem.

I have a sony vaio PCG-7141L with WI-FI but I can't connect to internet due to a secure network password, what can I do?


Firstly, are you trying to use your wireless internet or someone elses?

Because if it's someone elses, thats exactly why they've put the password on so that other people can't use their connection.

However, if it's your wireless network you're trying to connect to, then it would be worth using your wireless cd software to change your password to something you know or to take it off completely (not reccomended as others can use your connection). You can put the cd in your own laptop and change the password.

Hope this helpe =]

Router & new laptop


Firstly you need to hard wire your internet line to your router and then your router to your pc. You cant really set it up unless they are "connected" physically. You need the SSID information and if you are going to be secure you need to set up a secret key/password key/secret phrase that each computer will have to have in order for the two devices to do the handshake and understand each other. Your security should be WEP, WPA, WPA2. Once hard wired you need to start an internet session and put the IP address of the router management console into your browser ie http://192.168.0.1 (refer to your manual for this and the admin password needed to access the console) Once in here you set your security type WEP etc and your secret key. (Think of this as your password/passphrase) On your pc you need to set your wireless networking device to have the same information. Then you can work wirelessly as long as all devices have the same information. There is no substitute for reading the book for this one though.

Cant connect


Hi purplegarion,

 

hook up the router per instruction in manual and your particular internet connection.  With the Di524 powered up, use the end of a paperclip to depress the reset button located in a little hole beside the power connection.   open internet explorer and type in 192.168.0.1 and press enter.  The password is admin. once th screen appears, click on Wizard.  Follow the wizards directions carefully.  

For simplicity of security click on the wireless button while in the  wireless screen.  Set radio to on.  Enter a SSID like purplegarion. Set to open system.  Set Security to WEP.  Wep to HEX.  64bit.  Enter into Key one a 10 digit number you can remember like 1234567890.  Click apply.  Change your password to a personal password other than ADMIN.   

Any device that attaches will need to enter the WEP 64 Bit hex Security key 1234567890, or whatever 10 digit number you put in the router. 

Internet connection will require powering down you modem, and the DI-524 router.  power up the modem first and let it go through the start up, then power up thte DI 524.  you may need to make sure your DHCP is set to Automatically assign an IP address.
