I want to set a password to my d-link router dir-625. but i cant figure it out for the life of me. please help other people useing it are slowing down my connection
Hi…I’ll try and lend a hand. There are several ways to set up wireless security on this router. However, I’ll help you set it up using the manual method.
Important note: use a wired (Ethernet) connection to the router to set up wireless security.
There are four main steps:
1) Login to your router.
I’m sure you have done this already, but here it is again for clarity. Type the router address in the address bar of a web browser. For this router, it is http://192.168.0.1
Select ‘Admin’ from the dropdown box, then enter your password IF you have set one – otherwise, just leave the field blank and press return.
You should then see the configuration screen/user interface.
2) Change the router password.
If you HAVEN’T set a password, this is a good place to start. Go to Tools >Admin option. Set and confirm a password for ‘Admin’, and note it down. Also, set and confirm a password for ‘User’. Click ‘save settings’ when finished.
Make sure these passwords are not easy to guess, or a neighbour could log into your router and view/change all your settings.
3) Change the SSID (router name):
Go to Setup > Wireless Settings. You should see an option marked ‘Wireless Network Name’ or SSID. Change this from the default, ‘dlink’, to anything you like –as long as you can remember it. It is case sensitive, and you can use up to 32 letters – but don’t use something that could identify you, or your location. Click ‘save settings’ when finished.
4) Enable encryption
Still in the 'Wireless Settings' menu option, you should see the ‘Wireless Security Mode’ section. Under the 'Security mode' dropdown you have a number of options for encryption. WPA is safest....I would pick WPA-Personal.
You should see a dropdown box marked WPA Mode – select Auto. Leave Group Key Update Interval at the default of 3600s.
Under Pre-Shared Key you should enter a long password, or passphrase, between 8 and 63 letters/numbers long. This can be any series of letters/ numbers, or you can use a phrase with numbers ( eg - 456HappyhOLIdaystoyou8899). It is case sensitive.
Note down the passphrase carefully. You will need this to connect wirelessly. (The WPA shared key may also be called the network key, PSK, pre-shared key or passphrase). Click 'Save settings' when finished.
That's it, you have done enough to secure your network, and can close the screen.
There are further security options to enable if you wish, but these three are the most important.
When you next connect wirelessly, you'll see the router with its new name in your 'available wireless networks'. When you attempt to connect, you are asked for the WPA shared key you set in Step 4. If all goes well, you can then save this and will connect automatically in future.
Hope this helps you. Please come back to Fixya if this doesn't work or if you need help with any of it.
