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.

I don't know how to set a password on my d-link router because my internet is insecure. How do i do this? I have the default username and password, but i don't know what to do from there.


1.Open your Internet browser and type in the default IP address for your DIR-625 wireless router: 192.168.0.1. A window will appear asking for your DIR-625 wireless router network name and password. If you do not know your existing network name, enter the default network name, "Admin." Leave the password blank. If you have already set up a network name and password, enter it now. Select "Log In."

2.Select "Wireless Settings" from the left-hand navigation bar. Put a check mark in the box marked "Enable Wireless."

3.Type your new wireless network name for your DIR-625 in the box labeled "Wireless Network Name."

4.Type your new password for your DIR-635 in the box labeled "Pre-Shared Key."

5.Select "Save Settings" from the top of the screen to save your new password.

Set you router to WPA security:
For this DIR-625 router if the encryption is set to WEP it could only give up to 54mbps wireless connection. If it is set to WPA it can give up more than 100mbps wireless connection, but it depends if the wireless adapter in the computer is also a Draft N adapter. Its a backward compatibility.

How do I reset my D.Link DIR-625 router if I forgot the password?


Thank you for posting on fixya. Am pleased to help you.
I understood your issue and I would request you to follow the below steps. Note: Once reset is done, DIR-625 will have the default settings.
Look on the rear side of DIR-625. There should be a small hole, usually just to the
left of the power jack on DLinks. Inside that hole is a small button. Find
something small enough to press and hold it while the DIR-625 is powered up.
While pressing and holding, watch the lights on the front. With DLinks, its
usually the M1 and M2 lights that will go solid while holding the reset
button. Keep holding the reset until they start blinking. Its now reset.

To reconfigure:
1. Type in 192.168.2.1 on your web browser. 2. At Router's login page, type your username and password(Default Username: admin Password: (blank) ). 3.Once you are in, browse the different tabs for various settings. [ Contact DLINK customer support for details. Toll free number on products box] .
Thank you an have a great day. Feedbacks are appreciated.
