Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)
In your internet browser go to http://192.168.0.1/
default username: admin
default password: [none]
If you cannot get into the setup interface, then you need to reset the router. Find the little reset button on the router (this has to be pressed with a pen or smth). And the password will be reset to the default password mentioned above. Please note that this will also reset all your settings. If you are using cable internet, this should not be a problem, but if you are using dsl, or similar you will have to know the wireless router settings. So make sure you can call the internet provider tech support, they can tell you how to set up the router again.
Assuming you are into the wireless interface now, go into Wireless. SSID : [name of your network] -> enter whatever you want your wifi network to be called. Channel: 6 You can choose any channel. 6 is the default. WEP: tick Enabled -> this will set up encryption to your wifi network, so that no one else but you can use it. WEP Encryption: Choose 128 bit. Hey Type: HEX Key 1: Tick Key1 and enter the key you would want to use. Make sure it is at least 12 chars long and use a comination of letters, numbers and special chars.
The WEP encryption is very vunerable. It is very easy for WEP keys to be cracked. Unfortunately your router does not support WPA encryption. I suggest you occasionaly change the Wifi Key, so that, you can still protect your network even if your key gets cracked.
I also suggest you change the default router password. You can do this at Admin > Tools
