I have D-Link wireless router that I use for my home network. Everyone in the range of my wireless network can reach the internet, as it is unencrypted. I tried to set password on it, but nothing happens - and when you want connect to my wireless, it doesn't ask for password.

How can I solve this issue?

P.S: I set and go to wireless tab and set WEP password and restart my router.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Also, don't use WEP, use WPA2 – MDMarra Sep 19 '09 at 18:47
That is, unless you have a reason to use WEP only (I'm looking at you Nintendo DS... the DSi fixes that problem) – Powerlord Sep 21 '09 at 14:35

First, you should use WPA instead of WEP if the router supports it. Second, are you saving the settings before you restart the router?

I imagine you have to "enable" wireless security in a drop down list or a checkbox, not just set a WEP password.

If you could give us a model number, we'd be happy to give a step-by-step answer. This article may be able to provide more information as well
