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.

I think there are 6 ways (at least?) to connect this printer:
(1) Direct to Mac (or PC) via USB Cable (2) Direct to Mac (or PC) via Ethernet Crossover Cable(3) Ethernet to router/switch, with Mac/PC also via Ethernet to router/switch(4) Ethernet to router/switch, with Mac/PC via WiFi (802.11 wireless)(5) WiFi to router, with Mac/PC via Ethernet to router/switch(6) WiFi to router, with Mac/PC also via WiFi.
As (1) should be simplest, tried this first. First document would print instantly and completely, next doc would hang in queue with unexpected msg, "Printer is offline." Only way to print 2nd doc was to power cycle (off-on) the printer. This problem occurred whether 2nd doc was sent to printer before or after 1st doc had printed. Tried 2nd USB cable, tried new driver, tried reinstalling printer; same problem. Spoke to both Samsung and Apple support, including both on a conference call; never got this to work and never clarified if problem was in printer hardware/software, driver, or something else. Both companies now showing this issue as unresolved.
Nothwithstanding USB problem, did succeed in modes (4) and (6), although custom wireless config needed since my network does not broadcast SSID and requires an encryption password. Procedure required connecting first via Ethernet, obtaining Configuration Report by holding down orange button for 5 seconds, then using browser to connect to the printer's IP address. Also required different driver for wireless config (as opposed to USB).
Bottom line: What seemed simple - USB direct connect - proved unworkable, but wired and wireless network config works fine.

Missing link between DSL Cable and D-Link Systems HD Media Router 1000 (DIR-657)


What is the Time Warner modem? Make, Model? If you have a Ethernet port RJ45 connect the wireless device via a ethernet cable. You may need a splitter if there is only one Ethernet RJ45 port. Example: http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-RJ45-Splitter-Cable-Adapter/dp/B00009XSZE

"Ethernet cable unplugged"


A few things to try. Plug the cable into a different port on the router to rule out a bad port on router. Try a different ethernet cable (they do go bad). If this is an older router it may not be able to do logic swap on the pins and you would need to use a cross-over cable and not a straight through. Also check in device manager and make sure the computer is not allowed to disable the lan adapter in power saving mode. Also if your really want you can test your ethernet port by buying or making your own loopback plug. Look up ethernet stander T568A. You basically would buy a empty ethernet jack and run a short wire from pin 1 to pin 3 and a wire from pin 2 to pin 6. This will simulate sending data to another device (the other device will simply be the receiving pins on your own ethernet jack.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO PUT WHAT WIRE TO CONNECT 2 COMPUTERS


You connect the phone line to the router, then you connect ONE PC to the router via an Ethernet cable and configure router, after that you can remove that Ethernet connection and connect wirelessly.

Wireless connection works fine from the d-link router but the desktop linked from the phoneline keeps going offline. Why?


You've omitted some information about your hardware & configuration & connections.

You should have:

1. cable-modem connected to cable socket (or DSL-modem connected to telephone wall-jack);
2. router connected via Ethernet cable to the cable-modem (or DSL-modem)
3. desktop computer connected via Ethernet cable to the desktop computer
4. wireless device (iPod or netbook or notebook) connected over the "ether" to the router -- this connection will stay "up" almost "forever" (as long as there is AC-power to the router and power to the wireless device).

Which parts & connections do you have?

Connect D-Link DWL-G700AP to dreambox decoder


you can connect to your box via FTP via a crossover cable. If you can’t, you might want to read up on that before attempting this.
Now, what we’ll need is…
Ethernet cable (crossover or patch)
Router
Modem
We’ll also assume that you have a router (wireless or not) and that your modem is connected to the ‘Internet’ or ‘WAN’ port.
If you have a free port on your wireless router, you can connect your dreambox to this. Use the ethernet cable (crossover or patch, most modern routers will accept either) connect one end to your dreambox and one end to a free port on your router. You don’t need to change any settings on your router or PC.
Over to the dreambox. Navigate to the networking page on your dreambox.
