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.

Wireless connection set up


Are you trying to hook up the laptop wirelessly to the pc? because then the pc would need to have a wireless card as well....sounds like I need more info, but if you are trying to do what I think you are, you should just get a wireless router instead, hook the pc tower directly to it via ethernet cable, and then setup the laptop to connect to the router. The router would hook to your dsl or cable router....what service do you have?

Do I have to lock my D-link router connected via Ethernet cable? If so, how do I find the router on my PC?


Ya you should lock it with password .. bcoz.. if you will not lock it other might access it and it may harm you in some way.. they might access your internet resources , or data .. or anything they can do with your network settings with that router...

Connect to your router with your browser. then you will find a wireless security tab over there... click on that tab and you will find that the security features are disabled.

You should have several options when it comes to the type of security that you can choose. I prefer WPA, it allows you to simply enter a password to access your wireless network. This password can of course be saved in your wireless settings so there is no need to enter it but one time.

Simply enter your password in the password box and hit save. Your wireless network is now secure. Distribute the password to anyone that is allowed access to your wireless network.

My Dell does not recognize my wireless connection.


First of all make sure your dell "sees the wireless network, if it does - go back to your router program, write down all pertinant info needed for the dell under wireless network connections; SSID, encryption password, type of encryption, etc. fill in the info you wrote down. That should fix it.

I have a DSL router provided by frontier. I am trying to make my desktop wireless. I believe that my DSL router functions as a modem also. I purchased a Linksys wireless broadband router. I can't not...


Your router should just be that, a router. Your connection is probably like fibernet the modem is actually on the outside of the house. This may help or may not but I have a linksys wired router that works very well but you have to go to their website in order to set up the router. You may need to look through your papers and find the web address to connect to the right site.

Wireless router setup


is the problem that "nothing coming from the modem to the router"
if the router has more than one Lan port try the cable from the modem to the router, in the first lan port or the last port.

if its a wireless problem,ensure wireless is enabled on the laptop and the router,if you set up a security key ensure that it is put into the laptop wireless setting

sometimes you need to turn on the modem first then turn the router on after a little while to sort the ip address out before trying to connect the laptop, in the first instance.

hope this is of some help but more info would be good

good luck
Terry
