Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)
My wireless router has always worked fine until I bought a new laptop and now the new laptop will not connect to the wireless router. It keeps asking me for a key but I have forgotten it. How do I fix this problem please?
Hi, UNPLUG YOUR ROUTER (BUT KEEP IT ON ) AT THE BACK OF THE ROUTER ,THERE IS A RED SMALL RESET BUTON,,USING A PIN OR BALLPEN PRESS IT AND HOLD IT FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS, NOW CONNECT THE ROUTER AS IT WAS BEFORE. Check these Steps . 1.
Click Wireless from the menu on the left side of the screen. 2. The Home > Wireless screen appears.
Let's look at each of these fields in detail.
Wireless Radio: by default, the wireless radio is on. To turn off the radio and disable all wireless functions, select Disabled.
SSID: This is the name of the WLAN. By default, the SSID name is default. This field can be used to either connect to a pre-existing WLAN or create a new WLAN.
Channel: this field displays the current wireless channel. The default setting is channel 1. You can have the router automatically select the best channel to use by selecting the Auto Select option.
Proceed to the next step to learn about the remaining fields. 3. Mode Setting: If your network is using only 802.11g devices, set this option to G Mode. Otherwise, set this option to Mix Mode.
SSID Broadcast: Select Enabled to broadcast the SSID from the SSID field to the entire network.
Security: From this drop-down list, select the type of security (WEP, WPA, and WPA2) you wish to enable for the network. The default setting is Disable. See the WEP & WPA Setup walk through for more details on setting up security.

The key number will be listed in the router settings as you must have security enabled in the router, if you cannot find it then simply reset the router at the rear of the unit and start again as there will be no security key number and all the settings will be back to factory default.
