  • 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."

  • 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.

    My husband bought a dlink router (it says dgl-4500 on it) and i cant figure out how to use it to get wireless internet for my new laptop....i have three "codes" he wrote down- a "router pass", a "network...


    Router password is the password to access the router settings.
    SSID is the network name. When you try to connect to the wireless network on your laptop, you will see this network name.
    If your network is secured network then it will ask you for the network key or the password. You need to enter the ' security key '.

    Can not connect to internet thorough my dlink 614 router It tells me the internet security key is incorrect even though i know it is not


    Hi,

    Please access the web interface of the router and confirm the security key. Also, you can try to change the security key. It can be a possibility that your computer is not synchronizing properly with the current security settings.

    If you find that you are putting the right security key then please change the security type to wep 64 bit or wep 128 bit and configure a new key. Also, change the SSID or the network name and try to connect.

    In case of any issues please let me know which windows you are running and the security settings on the router.

    Thanks,

    Rashish

    Please help me!! i dont know how to get mt network security key and i cant connect to the internet cause i have to have to have the network key!!


    Look on the back of the router/modem and press the little RESET button-hold it down for about 15 seconds. This will reset the unit back to default settings.

    To get back it back up and working again, click here for the manual, and other support services:

    Problem with my wireless router.


    To do that, you must first configure your router. Type in your browser the ip of your gateway. To get your gateway ip, type in your command prompt "ipconfig". Once type, you will be prompted with a username and a password. If you used this for the first time, the username and password are the default of your router. Once you are in, there is a menu there that you can configure to put in your wireless password. Choose WPA, it is much stronger password type.
