Re: how to block a wireless connection
First, log on to your router. to do this, open up internet explorer, then in the address bar type in 192.168.0.1 the user name is admin and i think the password is either blank, or it is also admin (unless you changed it) then click on wireless and put in a key for key 1. it can be as easy as putting in one number at the end. click apply, then continue. now, the only computers that have that code will be able to access your network. you will have to put that code into your computer to connect the first time, but it will remember the code after that. there is 26 digits, so i usually just put in 25 0's then one number, that way it is easy to put into the other computers, because you have to put in all 26 digits. this should get ya going!

HI! read your posting regarding the situation that your experiencing.. If before you dont have any problem regrding your connection with out the cisco network magic. I suggest that before you install the cisco network magic. you should get the full version not the trial version, there is a limitation of setting up the trial version.. Cisco network magic is a plug and play and easy to setup if you get the full version. I dont see any problem regarding your connection with the 2wire and the linksys router, becoz you mention earlier that hime network is working and you can connect to the network and the internet..
Try to change the LAN IP address of your router to 192.168.2.1 by accessing the router's Setup page. You also need to set your Westell modem to "full-bridge mode". You need to ask assistance from your ISP to bridge the modem. After that, set-up the Linksys router to PPPoE then power cycle it.
hi! Welcome to fixya!
You need to turn off first or disconnect LAN connection which is the cable connection before you can use the wireless connection. After that go control panel you need to setup internet connection and be sure to configure the IP address to automatic which the DHCP mode configuration then restart. That's it. Have nice day!
for reseting the password of ur dlink router u have to press the rest button on the dlink router (genrallyit on the bottom or on the back of the router it is like a hole u have to use a pen or pin to reset the router back to its factory default settings after that password of the router will automatically back to admin or password login to ur router change the settings to static ip in the router so that u can provide the static ip of the other router to ur this router (example if primary router HL 2170 ip address is 192.168.1.1 then u will provide this dlink router the ip address as 192.168.1.5, subnet 255.255.255.0 default gateway 192.168.1.1 primary dns 192.168.1.1 now save the settings in the dlink router now the ethernet cable from ur other router will go directly in to the internetor wan port of this router. now connect wirelessly to any router both will work fine without any problem
Sometimes firewalls on your computers can cause connection issues. I had the same problem with my home network. I had norton internet security 2008 on both systems, but the firewall settings on both computers had to be adjusted to allow the computers to talk. If you have different brand firewalls on each computer, you should consider to switching one of the computers so that it matches the other.
Another thing you want to do is log into the router's web utility and check to see if the wireless settings are blocking wireless connections in some way. You also want to make sure the ssid broadcast is enabled.
Finally, you really should consider using security on your router, so wireless connections would be password protected. I suggest wpa personal.
Hi,I am going crazy! Just moved house and took my Netgear Wireless router with me. However, even though the hard wired base unit works, my wireless laptop can't access the internet - even though a full stregnth signal is there when i browse for wireless connections. Using Vista Home Premium. Help appreciated!
hey thats easy man dont worry, if you have a existing broadband at home, just connect the broadband to your router, then connect the cable that comes up with the router to your laptop. then
access the web configuration of the router, the ip address is usually written in the manual. then configure it with the settings that your Internet Service Provider gave you to connect. then configure the wireless settings and your done...
if you still have problems, please feel free to contact me again..........
