Enabling WEP on DI-524

Q: Enabling WEP on DI-524

Hello everyone, I have a D-Link DI-524 wireless router, and I have trouble enabling WEP security. I've done it before, but with the help of D-Link customer support service.
I've done a lot of research on this, but something is wrong, either the info im looking at is for another DI router, and my router isn't there, or the info just doesnt seem right.
Thanks a lot for reading.

Preferred Solution: Enabling WEP on DI-524

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've upgraded to IE7, but keep getting advised that add-ons & Active X are not enabled. MS screen advice to close and restart IE7 makes no difference.
When I go to tools the manage add-ons button is grayed out and cannot be chosen, so I go to tools,internet options,then programs, the manage add-ons there tells me they are all enabled, but when I open any window in IE it tells me right away that add ons are disabled.

I am new to Windows 7 and have version Home Premium. I need to enable IIS and not sure if the blue colored checkbox means. Do I need to install IIS separately and how many of the item under IIS do I need to enable? Coming from XP there was only i choice.

A:Enabling IIS

I'm assuming you're in the "Turn windows features on/off" dialogue?

The coloured square means only some of the sub-items are selected. You may need to expand the Internet Information Services item and make sure the features you need are all ticked, or just tick everything (then the top-level checkbox will change to a tick instead of a solid colour).

I recently formatted my harddrive to install on C:win98 and on D:winXP the problem is after the installation of win98, I had to install my via 4in1 driver that's when it started, after rebooting my machine I couldn't load into window it'll get up to the welcome screen and stay there forever. Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't help at all the only way was to disable DMA mode on all my driver (CD rom included) I tried the oldest via driver and also the newest one but that didn't help. Strangely that on my winXP partition it didn't have any problem at all.

I've read several articles but I'm still somewhat confused about this DMA feature in device manager under Disk Drives.

I checked the DMA box under properties and couldn't reboot, had to scanreg/restore to boot. Bios option for UDMA is enabled. But what else do I have to do to set up for this? My BIOS may need an update. Would this make a diff?

It is enabled by default. You might like to check that it is. As far as I know, there's no reason why you should run a browser with it disabled. It is needed for secure communications on secure sites. Perhaps there's no need to go further than that but if you would like to learn more about the protocols, there is plenty to be found.

I was wondering if S.M.A.R.T was enabled for my HDD.
I've checked my BIOS and have seen no options for it. (Not sure what my BIOS type is but I have a COMPAQ Presario C700t and the BIOS version is F.34
I've also tried to access the advanced BIOS (I Googled it and the only thing I've seen was to press Crtl + F1 to access the advanced menu in the BIOS, but nothing happens when I do that.)

I also see a hidden entry in my Task Scheduler under DiskDiagnostic called 'Microsoft-Windows-DiskDiagnosticResolver' and the description says:

"The Microsoft-Windows-DiskDiagnosticResolver warns users about faults reported by hard disks that support the Self Monitoring and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) standard. This task is triggered automatically by the Diagnostic Policy Service when a S.M.A.R.T. fault is detected."

I've always had it as Disabled and I enabled it. When rebooting and viewing again, it shows it has not run. If I run it manually, it triggers DFDWiz.exe in system32 but nothing happens.

How do I know/enable S.M.A.R.T.?

Thanks

as far as i know, s.m.a.r.t. monitoring is enabled/disabled with the bios. if you don't have that option, then you can't enable it. however, there is a free program that you can monitor your hdd's. but, i don't know if it requires that your system has to option to use s.m.a.r.t. monitoring.

I recently upgraded my computer (by myself : :blackeye: ). It was new installation of a video card. My old one was an Integrated NVidia that is forever onboard as far as I can tell, and the new video card is an ATI Radeon 7000. I installed it, and it seems to be working all right as far as everything goes.


I recently went to play a game, LineageII. I knew I fell somewhere between the minimum and maximum requirements, so I went to play and it told me that my AGP was deactivated, and to enable it for consistency. When I'd start the game, the screen would go black. I figured I'd better enable my AGP -- however, when I went to do so I realized I had no frickin' clue how to do it. I tried to do it through DirectX, but it's greyed out. When I tried to do it in Bios, my Bios said NOTHING about any AGP but at the same time I haven't an idea what to look for and modify thus I got really confused. I've been trying for two days now to figure something out without ruining my computer Help!

Hi! So I recently acquired a Compaq Presario CQ57 laptop (running Windows 7) from my brother and when I started it up it went into QuickWeb, but I exited out of it because I didn't know what it was, but after researching it to find out what it IS, I decided I wanted to try it out.

Except, I have no idea how to get back into it. When I had turned it on I was in the middle of wiping the keypad off and hit a button and BAM! QuickWeb. The problem is, I have no idea what button I pushed to get it. I've looked it up via Google but it doesn't really help me. It tells me to press the QuickWeb button when the comp is off or in Hibernation mode, but I have no idea what the QuickWeb button is. I even tried going into the... um, area that you get to after pressing F10 repeatedly? Yeah, that place, but there was nothing in there I could find to 'enable' (which the website told me I could do via that part of the system).

It's not like I HAVE to try it out or anything, I'm just curious how to get in and out of it, because I'd like to see what it does, if I'd like it, etc... but I have no idea how to get back into QuickWeb. I hope there is a painless way to do so, if not, it's no big loss.

Thank you! =)

A:enabling hdmi

Boot into Bios and make sure HDMI is enabled. Then, depending on the type of Video card you may have, there should be an Icon for the display in your System Tray next to the clock, either the nVidia Display or ATI Control Center. There you can choose to either enable mirror display or Extend your Desktop across 2 monitors. You can also access it in the Display properties in the Control Panel.

Greetings. I have a AMD FX-60 Dual core CPU.

The machine I have it installed in was running XP SP1a fine. Both cores detected and worked fine.

I have upgraded this machine to XP SP2, and now one of the cores has been disabled.

The BIOS shows both cores.
Task Manager only shows one core graph.
Device Manager only has one CPU (I believe it should have two).
The registry (where I can tell) seems to have info on both cores.
CPU-ID identifies only one core operational.
AMD Power Monitor advises either the BIOS or OS has disabled core.

I cannot find any information about how to get/tell XP to enable the second core.

Hey guys. I've recently been having some issues with burning DVDs and I've come to learn (via a software support forum) that I need to enable DMA mode as it appears, according to a DVD burning log file, that PIO mode is currently enabled. In order to do that, I was told to go to Device Manager, find the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers tree, find the primary IDE Channel, and enable DMA Mode under Advanced Settings. However, I don't have an IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers tree under Device Manager because I'm using a new Dell with a SATA hard drive and only one IDE Channel. Does anyone know of an alternate way to enable DMA mode? Thanks!

Attached is a screenshot of my Device Manager. Also, posted below is a copy of the log file from my burning software that shows that my dvd burner is in PIO mode (as opposed to DMA mode).

I had a nasty Vundo/Virtumonde infection on my XP Pro SP2 system. After a week of effort and great help from some security experts I was able to remove it. However, I believe one of the tools I used to clear the infection disabled autoplay. I like having a CD or DVD start playing when I put it in the drive. I've tried enabling autoplay (on CDs only, deliberately disabled it on removable media like flash drives) using TweakUI but it doesn't seem to work. I also checked the registry for the entry that disables autoplay and it isn't present. Any ideas on how to fix this issue?

A:Re-enabling CD autoplay

To change or add the necessary entry in the register, you can try this. But only do this if you're comfortable making changes in your registry. An error in your registry can have disasterous results. I recommend backing up your registry first.

Click on Start > Run, type in regedit to open the registry editor.

Navigate through the following folders.

HKEY_USERS > .DEFAULT > Software > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Policies > Explorer

In the Explorer folder, double-click the "NoDriveTypeAutoRun" if present and change the value to "91"

If "NoDriveTypeAutoRun" is not present, click "Edit" from the drop down menu, select "New", select "Binary Value".

Type in "NoDriveTypeAutoRun" as the name (without quotes) and press "Enter". Press "Enter" again to access the "Edit Binary Value" interface, enter "91" as the value, click "OK", exit regedit and reboot.

You should be good to go.

I recently rebooted my computer today because of a virus. I re-installed everything i needed but needed some things that were in my card reader/flash drive. So i plugged it in and it doesn't install correctly just like my web cam with a USB. I checked some other forums that popped up on google and they told me to open device manager and USB properties. Then they told me to enable "Write Caching" on all of them. i did as it said. It froze for a while and then i opened up task manager and forced it to close. I then went back to check it and they all had little red X's on them so i clicked properties and saw that i couldn't enable the other folder action that was on it, after i clicked properties. It is not disabled and i have tried disabling and enabling manually and it still doesn't work. I am running on Windows XP SP2.

I would appreciate any help at all, and will give any information needed.

Assuming you have USB2; If you installed XP with no service packs, then installed SP2, you'll need to remove the USB controllers from device manager and restart your computer for it to re-detect them.

I just purchased a new HP Media Centre computer running XP Media Centre and when I go to burn a DVD using Nero it tells me DMA is not enabled. I have looked every where trying to find where you can enable DMA but have been unable to find it.

Can someone please tell me where you go to enable DMA?

Thank you

I hope someone can help me. I am having problem with my printer. When I try to print, a message "There was an error found when printing the document ' ' to LPT1. When I checked the device manager, I saw that my printer port had an exclamation mark on it.

I then checked the properties of the printer and saw that it had an error (Code 29), "This device is disabled because the firmware of the device did not give it the required resources."

I checked all the tabs to see if there was an enable button and I even used the Window 2000 troubleshooter, but to no avail.

My question is how do I allocate resources or enable the printer so that it will not give me the "Code 29"?

In order to enable JIT Debugging on windows 8 I'm being told this;
1-On the "TOOLS" menu, click Options.
2-In the Options dialog box, select the Debugging folder.
3-In the Debugging folder, select the Just-In-Time page.
4-In the Enable Just-In-Time debugging of these types of code box, select or clear the relevant program types: Managed, Native, or Script.
To disable Just-In-Time debugging, once it has been enabled, you must be running with Administrator privileges. Enabling Just-In-Time debugging sets a registry key, and Administrator privileges are required to change that key.
5-Click OK.

Where oh where oh how do I find this mythical "TOOLS" menu? I have no idea!!! Please assist in any way you can?
