the WEP password is located on the label on the botom of your router. The WEP password prevents unotherize conecting to the network. If some one for example like your naber see your network and conects to but put in the wrong WEP they will not be able to use your internet.

How far are you running the CAT5 cables from house to house?   CAT5e only has a solid range of about 150ft, and anything near 100ft is pushing it.  You may also need to use CROSSOVER cables when plugging routers into other routers. 
Also, who has the actual internet connection?  I'm assuming House 2 does.  One big problem is a router is your Gateway address.  And, if house 2 is the only one with a valid Internet connection (via DSL or Cable, etc), then the router in house 2 is the only "true gateway".  And, all 3 houses need to be in the same physical network (i.e. 192.168.1.0 range or whatever), and all computers should have the same Gateway address...which would be the IP address of the router in House 2.
What you really need in this situation is 1 router and 2 switches.  Put the router in House 2 and put switches in House 1 and 3.  That would be the best way to handle this problem.  It would also end your connectivity problems.
Cheers!

I need to set up secure access for 3 computers, HOW?


if your connecting all your computers wirelessly then you can setup encryption for your wireless network.
login to your router from a browser. go to 192.168.1.1
click on wireless
click on wireless security
set security mode to wpa2/wpa mix mode.
set the passphase. this will be the password you required to authenticate to your wireless network.
click save settings.
all wireless devices will need to be reconfigured to the new passphase/password in order to use your secured wireless network.

HP 530 wont boot Windows 7 DVD


the 530 came with XP or vista,. never W7,
the HP support only supports those 2 OS, period.

F9 key boots to anything and DVD , the DVD-r is bad or the DVD drive is bad, why not boot to USB stick? if that works then the DVD is bad. (burned wrong or drive itself bad.see?

Tell us what media you are using? (WHO's from Where?)

tell us what you want to do:
1: run XP,Vista or W7, what?
if running XP or VISTA before, the F10 ( changed to F11 later)
F10 loads the OS fresh, off the working HDD, partition called the
HP recovery partition, this is how to get the 530 back as day one.

if you use a Microsoft media, it will be missing key HP drivers and will be missing all HP software. a fact.

again, where did you get your media.?
my guess, is you MADE it from DVD-R , right.?
using what ISO, from Microsoft or from HP?

using what method (I use Imgburn? free, and is best) ask how.

this PC is carbon dated at 2008, (1 more year of support left, hint)
be wise to download all the below so when HP deletes all this soon.
you have it.
or buy the HP media kit. and never need to ask for it again.
hp sells it. buy it. now. while still sold.

btw2, many DVD drives are bad, or need service or cleaning
and fail to read disks properly,for sure huge OS loads !

and when DVD does work , it takes 1/2 day to load windows
we use USB sticks today, that work all the time and run fast.
burn stick instead of the disk. and win.

we use RUFUS to burn the ISO to STICK. (ask, millions do)
then, F9 boot to the USB stuck called Udisk.
it boots fast and works. (at least installs fully)

if using MS, w7.iso, there is no guarantee it will work with all
drivers working on a 530.
you tell us...
the Microsoft w7 load will takes a license key ,
the bottom sticker on the 530 has COA sticker , for OEM XP or VISTA, (unstated by you)
only OEM Disks installs work with that sticker,
if you buy W7 , its called retail and can work if luckly , sans all HP software with it.


here is the official page. this works, every time.
but MS does not support it now, updates are dead. and more. at MS now. they ended it 3 years ago.. and Vista last month.
(yes, 1 patch was released for the In the news ciberattack)

The Network and Sharing Center in Microsoft* Windows Vista* can be used to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If an Internet connection is not automatically made by the operating system, you may need to contact your access point (AP), broadband wireless router manufacturer, or Internet Service Provider (ISP).

These steps assume that your network adapter; AP or router; and cable, DSL or another type of modem have already been physically connected and configured. They allow you to create a new connection and configure it accordingly.

Follow these steps to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If a wireless profile does not exist, you will need to create a secure wireless profile before you can set up a wireless connection to the Internet.

1. Access the Network and Sharing Center.

2. Select Set up a connection or network.

3. Click Connect to the Internet.

4. Click Next.

5. Select Wireless. At this point, if the network(s) that are listed say that the network settings do not match the network requirements, as shown in Figure 1, create a secure wireless profile and then follow the steps again.

6. Select a network and click Connect. If you are not connected to the Internet, you may need to contact your AP/router manufacturer or ISP.

Access the Network and Sharing Center


To access the Network and Sharing Center, use one of the following methods:

How do you access the hard drive from other pc's apart from the one that it was originally installed on, the original is running vista and the laptop w7


You can share your harddrive.
for that open my computer then right click on harddrive icon then click on sharing and security.
Then share the drive and set permission to everyone to full rights or read or write.
Then apply.
then go to another computer then go to my network places then you can see shared drive.
Make sure both computer;s must in network.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Keyboard stops responding after a powersave on laptop ACER 5715Z


The issue is that several of the Acer software products don't support Vista. You need to remove these programs.

Follow the instructions in this link
http://global.acer.com/support/winvista/t-faq.htm

Due to architectural changes to Windows Vista®,some Acer applications are not supported anymore. Below is a summary ofthese applications. Uninstall these applications before the upgrade.

Acer eRecovery Management The new version of Acer eRecovery Management, which is compatible with Windows Vista®,requires repartitioning your hard disk drive, causing data loss. As aresult, the Wizard will not reinstall the new version of eRecovery onyour computer under Windows Vista®. However, you will be able to find similar features in the built-in Backup Utility of Windows Vista®, including full system volume backup to a HDD or CD/DVD. Acer eAcoustics Management Windows Vista® supports similar functions of eAcoustics so Acer will no longer provide this utility for Windows Vista®. Acer ePresentation Management You can easily manage your external monitor settings via Windows Vista® Mobility Center. As a result, we do not support an upgrade to Acer ePresentation Management. Acer ePower Management Due to architectural changes to Windows Vista®,Acer ePower Management cannot be upgraded for some models. However, youcan easily manage your power settings via Windows Vista® Mobility Center instead. Acer ePerformance Management For notebooks only. Since Windows Vista® provides similar resource management functionalities, we will no longer provide this for notebook models with Windows Vista®. Acer Arcade™ Deluxe 3.x
Acer eNet Management 1.x
Acer eDataSecurity Management 1.x Due to architectural changes to Windows Vista®, these applications cannot be upgraded.

Alternately (not recommended) you can change your settings with the following method. I would recommend removing all the Acer software though as keeping them might cause problems.

Check under Advanced Power Options-> Multimedia Setting -> When Sharing Media. By default onBattery and Plugged is set to "Allow the computer to enter AwayMode" Changing this setting to "Allow Computer to sleep" should solve theproblem. On Battery the Away Mode "does" allow the computer to sleepproperly.
