How to enable or disable remote access on a VersaLink 7500 wireless router

Remote access is a way for you to log in to your router's settings from any computer that has Internet access, even if it's not on your local network. You can configure your VersaLink 7500 Wireless Gateway for remote access by following the steps below.

To enable remote access:

- Open up a web browser on any computer that's on the same network as your router.
- Type your router's IP address (by default, it is 192.168.1.1) into the browser's address bar and hit Enter.
- Click the Advanced link at the top of the screen.
- Click Yes when asked if you're sure you want to proceed.
- Click Remote Administration.
- If you are asked to log in, enter the user name and password for your router.
- Click the box next to Enable Remote Access.
- Write down the URL shown on the next line; that is the IP address and port number you'll use to access your router remotely.
- Click Apply to save the change.

To disable remote access:

- Follow the steps above to get to the Remote Administration page.
- Remove the check mark next to Enable Remote Access.
- Click Apply.

If you haven't already changed the router's user name and password from the preset ones, you should do that now to prevent other people from being able to access your router over the Internet. You can set up a new name and/or password by clicking Users on the Advanced page. If you don't regularly use remote access, you should leave it disabled as an added security measure.

i got a knew modem yesterday, we got everything to work,i went to work and now i cannot connect


The IP Address you list is typically the local network address. You cannot access it from outside your local network unless you configure remote access. Remote access sets up port forwarding so you can access the router from anywhere with an internet connection and browser.

Change a Network Password

A network password is a combination of alphanumeric characters that users must enter in order to access a local area network.

Wireless routers use this password to protect the network from unauthorized users who could potentially steal bandwidth from the network, access sensitive data and view the information being sent to and from the network's router.

To change your network password, you must log on to the router's URL and access its security settings.

Type the router's URL into your web browser.
To access and change any settings on your router, you must log in to the router's URL.

This will allow your computer to communicate with the router and access the router's main page. When accessing the router's URL, use the same computer that was used to install the router.

If you do not know the router's URL, look for this information in the router's manual or on the manufacturer's website.

After entering the URL into the web browser's address bar, press "Enter" or click the "Go" button on the browser.

Input the router's default username and password.

Once you enter the router's URL into your web browser, a dialog box will appear requiring you to input the router's username and password. (Note that this password is not the network password.)
Unless you have previously changed the router's username and password, input the defaults.

Many routers have the default username of "admin" and have the password set as "password" or have no password at all.

To find out your router's default username and password, check the documentation that came with your router or check the manufacturer's website. Click "OK" to proceed to the router's main page.

Access the router's security settings.
Depending on your brand of router, there will be tabs or links on the router's main page.

One of these will contain the page for changing your security settings.
Find and click the link or tab.

This page will contain several textboxes, one of which will contain the SSID (name of the network) and two textboxes for changing the network password.

Select an encryption type and change the network password.
Most new routers offer WEP (Wired Equivalency Privacy) security or WPA security.

Select the type of security and change the network password by typing in a new password in the two text boxes.

When you are finished, click "OK."

Save your changes and log out.

After changing the network password, you must click "Save" or "Apply" to keep the password change.

Log out of the router by clicking the "Logout" or "Exit" link on the router's main page.

If you leave the main page open for a certain period of time, you may be logged out automatically.

  • 1Unplug one of the network connections from your old router.

  • 2Use this open port to connect the old router to the new routers WAN(wide area network) port. If your old router has an uplink port, use this instead of the last LAN(local area network) port and keep the last LAN port open.
  • 3Connect the computers to the ports on the new router.
  • 4Configure the new router settings to match the old router settings.
  • 5Use IPConfig to check you current IP address
  • 6Use this information to create a static IP on the computers connected to your network.
  • 7Set the Default Gateway to the IP address of the router in which the computer connects.
  • 8Check that all computers can access the internet and "see" each other on the network.

    I am trying to set up another computer but cannot connect even though it shows the network available. How do I secure the wireless network?


    Is this router set up with any security on the wireless? With a wired connection to the router, log in to http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 as needed to access your router. Once you are logged in, go to the Wireless section (the SSID, or name, of your network) and, if you have not already, set up Security. I prefer using WEP-PSK[TKIP] for its ease of use. You will need to use the new passcode to log on to your router from wireless computers. Anyone that does not know the passcode will be denied access to it.
