How do I make my Dlink wireless router secure


There are several methods for "Securing" your router. I'll answer in general first, and if you need more info, just ask. Here are the top three methods to make your Router "Secure":
1. Create a Password for the ADMIN access to your router. This ensures that no one can get to your router through your IP address, and make changes (like adding their own computer to your DHCP Table). Be sure and record this somewhere safe.
2. Along with this password, Create a "Passphrase/Security Code", and install this code in your Router's Wireless Settings. I recommend sixteen digits, mixed alpha and numeric (recommend using lower case alpha only).
3. Create a Table of TCP IP addresses which emcompasses ALL the devices you will be allowing access to this router. For added security, make your range OUTSIDE the default range. Example: 192.168.0.210 to 192.168.0.214. That would give you Five devices, and ONLY those five devices could connect (this is your own situation). Then set the "Number of Devices" to just "5".
4. There's actually a fourth step called "Locking it Down" to those devices ... but first get to the point where you can actually SEE these devices connected within the router's DHCP Table. GOOD LUCK!

Why cant i access wireless in my home or download


Can you verify if other devices can have access to the internet in your home? If you can access wifi connection elsewhere, then most likely your wireless router is not configured. You didn't specify if it ever has been. Router needs to receive the internet signal from outside the house and make it available through radio. Depending on the make and model of your router, you would need a hard-wire connection between your PC and the router. Then you need to configure it, assign a wifi name, security type and password for it. Write it down on a sticky label and stick it under the router because eventually this info gets forgotten.

How do I lock the router for no outside use?


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default PW (write it down and putit in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Can my linksys broadband go out


What exactly do you mean by "go out"? As in drop a connection go outside? range of wireless? please post more info include model of the router and be specific on your question.
If you do mean: can it drop connection. Then yes, any router can and does, depending on settings model and actual broadband line, make sure you have a filter installed on the line so your phone doesn't interrupt the connection

How can i locked my router so that outsider will not access to my wireless router


You will need to access your router through the interface and enable security. Depending on the router you will have an option of WEP (less secure), WPA (more secure) or WPA2 (most secure). You will need to enter a name for in the SSID field (this is the name that will be visible to your wireless device), Enter a network key (write this down, you will need it later) and set the network authentication to shared.

Then when connect to the router with your wireless device it will ask you for the network key that you entered earlier. Now your wireless network traffic will be encrypted and not accessible without the network key.

I need password to be able to lock my internet


You can find everything you need to know from here:

http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT54G

You basically setup your own security. If this is a pre-configured router and you do not know the access information, then you may need to reset the router back to factory and then configure it from scratch. While you are at it, download the latest firmware and update your router for best performance.
