Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
I would like to put a password on my computer that the outside world can't rob my internet.
How do I do this?
I have 2 lap tops, xbox360, playstation 3, and a desk top computer that uses the wireless.
It would be great if you could tell me how.
The D-Link is configured using a Web browser. After you have connected
your computer to the D-Link router, follow these steps:
1. Launch your Web browser. Enter "http://192.168.0.1" into
the address bar and press the "Enter" or "Return"
2. A logon pop-up screen will appear. Type "admin" for the username and leave the password field blank.
3. Click "OK". A D-Link configuration screen will appear. All changes to the D-Link configuration are made here.
Enabling WEP* (Wired Equivalent Privacy) will require anyone wishing to access the Internet through your wireless network to enter a password. After the correct password is entered, a connection is established, and all data sent from the D-Link to the computer and back is encrypted. From the D-Link configuration screen:
1. Click the "Home" tab.
2. Click the "Wireless" button.
3. Click the "Open System" button next to "Authentication".
4. Set the "WEP Encryption" to "128 bit".
5. Set the "Key Type" to "ASCII".
6. Type a 13 digit password into "Key 1".
7. Click "Apply".
8. When you connect to your wireless network from a computer, you will need to enter the 13 digit password.
*Note: If your computer's operating system supports it, enabling WPA-PSK is more secure than WEP. The steps above can be modified to set up WPA-PSK.
