Installed a D-Link DIR-601 on Windows 7 computer, a second Windows 7 laptop logged in and was never asked for the password, why not? Used WPA and the only other choice was WEP. Setup as a home network.

The laptop logged into what? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jun 24 '12 at 17:46
Thanks for responding to my question but not sure why your asking this question. The purpose of the router is to allow various computers or other devices to be able to access the internet. So I picked the local wireless connection provided by the router but was allowed to access the internet without entering the password I entered during setup. Hopefully I have answered your question. When I setup my own home router (Netgear) I setup it up the same way with a password and am required to enter a password for additional computers, etc. – G. Holman Jul 13 '12 at 18:21
