Question about SMC Barricade g SMC2804WBR Wireless Router

1 Answer

Cant set up network password on my Mac using SMC 2804WBRP-G router..

Hello, im4mum2..I was looking into an issue i have with my SMC router and came across some useful help you provided another person with similar problems. I decided to try the 'guru' directly and see if you can help me with this little dilemma. As you probably know, SMC charges for the customer support and I really can't afford that..but neither can I allow everyone to keep sucking up my bandwidth because it's slowing my work down and posing a serious security threat.

Basically, I never password protected my network and it's been available to everyone for at least a couple years. The router is connected to my modem (TimeWarner) and MacBook which runs the most current operating system (OSX10.5.5). I've gone to the System Preferences; Network; Selected Airport, (clicked Advanced..); Selected SMC; double clicked and selected WPA Personal; put in new password then Saved....but it never seems to actually work and store the settings.
I'm not sure if I'm setting the password in the right place or what, but could really use some help.

Thanks in advance for your time.
Best

    I hava same router SMC2804WBR and Macbook. Actually the problem is in OSX. When I updated my MacBook to OSX 10.5.2 I lost my wlan connection which used WPA Personal(with password).

    If I try to connecto using PC it wlan works fine but MacBook doesn't work. now I also use MacBook with OSx 10.5.5. and still cannoct connect to wlan if WPA is used.

    Unfortunately solution is to remowe WPA Protection from your wlan. After that my macbook can connect to wlan.

Cant put a lcok on my smc router


Manual for WBR14-G2 router [6.2 MB] in pdf format:
http://www.smc.com/files/AG/MN_SMCWBR14-G2.pdf

Keeping others from connecting to your router:
1. Have an "wired only" router login access or for this router "change and disable your SSID". This way you avoid that others can login to
to the router changing your settings: See page 48 of the manual.
1.1 Wireless Network Name (SSID): change the default name SMC
to "any private name" ( and remember for later login )
1.2 Broadcast Wireless Network Name: change from default ENABLE
to DISABLE .

2. Make a secure wireless encryption key for your connection:
see page 87.
2.1 For most secure key select WPA / WPA2 only and SAVE SETTINGS .
2.2 See page 91 for entering and saving your secure key: the password
that must be entered to get access to the router.

SMC Barricade g SMCWBR14-N Wireless Router... router Configure with Westell 327W


it seems that the router capability of both devices are conflicting with each other so below are the steps that you can try to setup the two devices to work with each other.

i assume that you are using pppoe connection from at&t and you are using a connection manager. if so, with the current setup that you have right, you need to disable the connection manager on your computer (network connection, disable at&t connection) and set the connection of your web browser to "never dial a connection". check now if you will be able to connect to the internet instead of being prompted for a password. if your problem is still the same, try the steps below.

configure the westell 327w the way it was before (when it works properly when hard wired to the computers but the wireless sucks) but disable the wireless capability. change now the ip address of the smc router from it's default (192.168.2.1) to an ip address which is on the same segment as the ip address of the westell 327w (ex. 192.168.1.2 if your westell 327w is using the ip address 192.168.1.1). disable the dhcp of the smc router (note:make sure that you have configured all the settings that you want to configure with the smc (i.e. wireless settings, port forwarding, etc). then connect the westell to one of the LAN ports of the smc (note: with this setup, the wan port of the smc should not be used) and power cycle everything and check if this setup will work.

hope this'll help you and just ask me if you have other concern.

ciao!
