A couple of ways you could keep someone from accessing the Internet through your router. 1) You could use a network encryption key (WPA2 is best).2) Also you could enable MAC address filtering, which only allows devices that have whitelisted MAC addresses to have access to the Internet through your network

How to change wifi password on Buffallo AirStation WBR2-G54 router


I'm not 100% sure, but I think the password is actually programmed into the bios of the router, so you can't change it...could be wrong. If someone is using your router, they must be aware of your password, remove the password sticker off your router and keep it in a safe place

I can not connect to the Internet. I have WiFi connection but can't do anything else


Plug your computer/laptop directly into router. Can you get to the Internet then?
If you CANNOT get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router, reboot your router. If it doesn't have a power switch, unplug it. Leave it unplugged. Next, you need to figure out if you have another modem for DSL or Cable. If you do have another DSL or Cable modem, unplug that device to. After 5 minutes has elapsed for both devices being unpowered, plug in the DSL or Cable modem to the power source. Keep the router unplugged from power. After your DSL or Cable modem has powered up for 5 minutes, plug your router into the power source. Wait a few minutes. Reboot your computer/laptop. Try the wireless connection again.
If you CAN get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router. Reboot your computer. Try to connect again. If you cannot connect after rebooting, make sure you are connecting to YOUR OWN wireless access point and not someone else's.
Do you have other computers/laptops/wifi devices that CAN/CANNOT connect to your wireless / access the Internet?

How do i make sure nobody else is using my internet without my permission?


You need to set up a network password to keep others from piggy-backing onto your internet connection and to secure others from accessing your data. I can walk you through the process if you give me your router''s manufacturer and model.

Have excellent connection cant get on internet


First thing to try is rebooting devices in this order, 1.Modem, 2.Router and 3.Computer.

If the above did not fix your issue then keep reading.

Plug you computer directly into your router via an ethernet cord and try accessing internet again. If this fixed it, then you have some wireless settings misconfigured. A "hard reset" can possibly fix this by restoring all settings to default. There is a little pin sized hole on the back of your router, inside of it is a button. Stick something like the end of a paper clip into it and press for 5 seconds while the router is plugged in.

If it is still not working then plug your computer directly into your modem via an ethernet cable and reboot the modem then your computer (in that order). Once everything is back up and running, try the internet again. If this fixed it, your router is the culprit and is either misconfigured or malfunctioning. Perform a hard reset as described above to put all settings back to default on your router and try the internet again.

If you still do not have internet access then you either have a computer problem or your internet has a problem or has been shut off.

To rule out the possibility of a computer problem, try your computer at a friends house or work to see if it can access the internet there. If there is an unsecured wireless router that you can pick up from home, try using it just to see if you can get internet access.

If the computer does work when connected to someone elses router, then you need to call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to see if there is a problem with your account and have them fix it.

Remember that every time you connect a different piece of hardware (router, computer) directly to your modem, you have to reboot your modem so it leases an IP to that specific piece of hardware.

I have purchased a Belkin Wireless G Router for a cable modem. I have installed however i am unable to see the wireless network. What have i done wrong ??


Hello experts....

My problem is not being able to work wirelessly with my laptop. My answers to your questions are underlined(I've used your questions to someone elses problem)

One possible issue is your router's wireless radio is not enabled- the light on the router is lite on the symbol for wireless

or the wireless radio is not enabled on the computer you are attempting to connect to the router with - there is a switch on the front of this machine which is switched to wireless.

There are many other possibilities as well. That is why we need you to carefully answer EACH ONE of the following questions.

(01) Which of the following is your router?
-->> F5D7230-4 (Wireless G Router)

(03) Are ANY of the computers connected to your Belkin router able to access the Internet?
YES

(04) If there are other computers connected to the router that are able to access the Internet, how are they connected? (in each case, please)
only this machine is connected but it is by....
(b) wired (using an Ethernet patch cable connected between the router and the computer)

(05) What is the manufacturer and model number of the computer you are attempting to access the Internet via the router on?

HP Pavilion dv2500

(06) What operating system is installed on the computer you are attempting to access the Internet via the router on?

This machine is operating on Vista but the internet access I have is with talktalk

(07) Have you ever successfully connected (wirelessly) to the Internet from the computer you are attempting to wirelessly access the Internet through your Belkin router on?
NO


I hope you don't mind me using your questions to someone else, I thought you might be able to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I am connected to the internet but don't seem to be able to work wirelessly. Lorraine
