    D-Link Wireless Router - how do I set up to require password to access?
    I have DI-524 Wireless Router. How do I set up to require users to require password to connect (go from unsecured to secured)? I suspect my neighbors using my router and it is impacting performance of my connections. And for the life of me, I can't figure out the manuals which came with the product.

    Simple really just setup WEP encryption on it and ONLY give the passcode to people you want to access your router/connection.

    Try typing (this will get you in your router) and once you're in, go to the "Security" tab or option and click on WEP or WPA, select the encryption, choose a password and click save or apply.
