Access the Web Interface , by inputting the IP address of the router into a web browser , then navigate through to the wireless page , by clicking the links on the page , then when within that page choose the encryption type (WPA2 is the strongest) and then the key (password)


If you cannot find the IP address look in the manual that came with the router or

Click start

Click Run

Type cmd

hit ok

In the black DOS screen that appears type: ipconfig

hit enter

where it says default gateway the numbers preceding that is the IP address


Goodluck.

    D-Link wireless router forgot password how may I recover or assign a new one


    Hi there,

    A wireless router password wont be recovered unless you still have the password you can enter or if the router is unmanaged without an admin password.

    another option would be resetting your router to be able to get through the router and assign a new password.

    here's how: you need to directly connect your computer or laptop wired going to your router not using a wireless one. then reset, make a new network configuration and put your admin password later. dont forget to backup your router config. in a folder together with your password so the nextime you forgot any thing or change anything. just look back to your folder where you put your backup config. and password.

    My internet connection via the router (d-link DI-524) have slowed down. how do i reset settings or put a password?


    Maybe you have an open WiFi (no password wireless) and anyboby near can connect to your router and download files, this can slow down your Internet connection. To put a password to your wireless network, enter setup preferably by a wired connection to router, in your browser type the default IP address of it (http://192.168.0.1), the user is admin and its password must be left blank (default settings), at the Home tab go directly to Wireless option since you'll only change your WiFi from unsecure to secure, there you can choose the security type, WPA is recommended, after select it you can put the new Key (password) of your WiFi, and finally apply to get changes working, just remember that after this procedure, you'll have to enter the password in each new wireless connection to your router.

    >If you're trying to put password for the Router, then type "http://192.168.0.1" into the address bar, then hit "Enter."
    >Use "Admin" as the username and leave the password blank when the login screen appears.
    >Please click on Administrator settings and change the User Name and Password.

    >In the Router setup page, click on Wireless Settings.
    >Under Wireless Security Mode, select Security Mode: WEP/WPA/WPA2.
    >Enter the Security Key manually or enter the Phrase to generate the Security key automatically (only in WPA/WPA2) and save the settings.
    >Please note the Security Key to connect to the Wireless Networ.
    >The Wireless is secured now.


    Good Luck!!!!

    I've just added a password to stop hackers on my D-link wireless. How do I activate it?


    What do you mean by you put a password on it. You put a password on the router on a key in the actual wireless settings? If you hit apply then it will save it and then you just log into the router with your wireless connection using that key. you can test it by trying to connect with the wrong key/password. Hope this helps.
    thanks,
