Vinegar,

Not EVERY router shares this IP address for their setup page. In order to tell you for certain I would need to know the brand and model.

you might also try 192.168.10.1 or 192.168.1.100

If these don't work thenI'll need the brand and model to look up your devices actual IP address

Hope this helps
Dave

    Vinegar79,



    I looked up your Modem/Router on Netgears website.



    The IP address to access your Routers webpage IS



    192.168.0.1



    If this does not get you into your settings page then you need to check for a physical error. Like a cable being loose or damaged etc.....



    Hope you find this useful

How can I lock my router to other users


This change is different for each brand of router. Go to the manufacturers website and download a manual for your router. The key is to navigate your web browser to the router and make the changes you need. Usually, you can use a wizard from the manufacturer, but here are the highlights of what I set each time:

Wireless Router


It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below.


Things to set:


Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes.

1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.

2. Set a recognizable system ID.

3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.

a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.

4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.

How can I configure my linksys wireless G router?


for exact directions, go to the website of the manufacturer. You can get directions for free. Some models have a wizard that helps you rin through this stuff, but there are a hand full of items that you want to change, I enclose a checklist below. The key is to SAVE any changes right away, one at a time, leave the page and changes are deleted...SAVE.

Probably you have to turn on the wirelss portion. Go to Belkin and download a manual for the exact steps.

You need to navigate your web browser to the router, log in and make changes. I have included the highlights that need to be set, below.

HOW DO I SET UP NETGEAR WIRELESS G-ROUTER FOR MY COMPAQ PRESARIO NOTEBOOK PC. I HAVE NORTON ANTI-VIRUS INSTALLED ON MY HP PAVILION. HOW DO I GET IT TO INSTALL ON MY NOTEBOOK PC?


To set up the router, you connect directly to the router with a network cable, log into the router using your Internet browser, to a code like 192.168.0.1, or similar. I suggest that you use the wizard, but be sure to change: Wireless security of WEP and access code of your 10 digit home or cell phone#, change system ID to something you recognize, change router access password AND RECORD IT, change wireless channel to 11 and avoid conflict with landline cordless phones.

With routers, you have to SAVE on each page or loose settings.

Then install the router, and look for it in the wireless connections list on your laptop. Give the access password and you should be good to go. The desktop usually connects via network cable.

I want to change my network password


Hi

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Type the router's URL into your web browser. To access and change any settings on your router, you must log into 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 default ones. Many browsers 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 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. To create a password using letters and/or numbers, you must choose the WPA security setting. Change the network password by typing in a new password in the two textboxes. 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 automatically be logged out of the router.

Wish to change my password on the Belkin G Plus Nimo router and cannot remember where to go to get in and do it


1. Access the router's setup page by going to 192.168.2.1.
2. By default, there is no username and no password. Otherwise if you have created a password to access the router's page already then use that password.
3. If you want to change the administrative password of the router, go to "System Settings".
4. If you want to change the wireless security for your wireless connection, then go to wireless settings tab of the router.

UNKNOWN  COMPUTORS  CONNECTED  TO  MY  NETWORK  I  AM  USING  A  WIRELESS   MODEM  P2602  ANY  HELPERS


avery you need to configure your router to avoid having people using your internet conection:

please provide the model and maker of your router and I can walk you through a desirable configuration. or if you want to try it yourself check on your router's manual as usually there will be instructions on what you need to do...

for you to have a general idea i suggest your read the following article that explains common things you need to set up like:
1. change the default SSID (the network name or name of your router/access point)
2. hide your ssid (so only you know the name and set up the computers you want manually to use it)
3. a network key/passphrase: so in order for other computer to join your network a key/passphrase or password is provided first
4. encryption: so your neigbors don't decipher what you're transmitting wirelessly.
5. configure your computer to access your wireless network after configure your router with the configuration you set.

if you have any questions post back and make sure to note the router model and maker

Someone is getting into my computer using my wireless system. How can I block my wireless so no one can use my internet? How can I secure it?


they way you do it depends on the wireless access point (router) you have in your home. look for the router manual as you will need this information to get into the specific configuration.

in esence you need to the following:

1. go to your router configuration page. (check your router manual for details on how to this)
2. set an administrator password for your router so only you get access to the configuration page.
3. change the default name for your access point or even better hide it. (set it so it's not broadcasted by the router)
4. setup wireless security (depending on your router your options are wep, wap and wpa2.. set it to wpa2 if possible) this is how your connections its encripted so it's evesdropping becomes difficult or not worthy if someone were to try hard. (now days almost everything is possible with the right tools).
5. make a note of you ssid (name for your access point) and your passphrase.
6. configure your wireless systems to access the access point (router) using the new ssid and the passphrase you configured.

post your name and model of your router and I'll help you getting the manual you need.

How do I optimize my Toshiba 802.11b Wireless LAN settings? I have a Tashiba Satellite A205-S5819 PSAF3U-0QV00V.


Hey Joshua2414,

If you are referring to optimizing your security settings, there are a couple of things that you can generally try: ensure that your wireless network is WEP or WPA/WPA2-encrypted, enable MAC filters on your router, and set the router's broadcasting channel to one that is not heavily used in your area.

Wireless network encryption like Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA/WPA2) keys prevent any unauthorized user from accessing your wireless internet connection, in addition to preventing others from reading information sent between your router and computer. These keys are typically generated by your router, and must be manually entered into your laptop to grant it access to your home network. In most instances, you can enable these protections by accessing your router's control panel through its default website. Many routers or residential gateways will use one of the following addresses, but please keep in mind that it may vary from router to router:

192.168.0.1
or
192.168.1.1

You may be prompted for a user name and password before being able to proceed, and both are normally provided in your owner's manual documentation for the router. They may also be provided to you by your internet service provider (ISP) if you've elected to rent the networking equipment instead of purchasing it on your own.

Once you've gotten access to your router's control panel, you should be able to enable either of these encryption types by selecting the "Wireless Security" option from the main menu. Remember to write down or copy the passkey generated, because it will need to be entered into your laptop's wireless network settings exactly as it is presented through the router's control panel.

Media Access Control (MAC) filters can also be accessed from this same control panel. MAC filters are essentially "blacklists" and "whitelists" that restrict what hardware is able to access your network. Every wireless networking device will have a unique MAC address (or identification tag), which can be entered into these filters to either permit or deny them access to the internet.

Sometimes locating a device's MAC address can prove to be a challenge, especially if you are not familiar with how to set up your home network. For most versions of Windows, your MAC address can be found through the DOS prompt and may be referred to as your computer's "Physical Address." Please keep in mind however, that for every networking device connected to your computer you will have a different MAC address.

Additionally, you can use this same panel to change the channel on which your router broadcasts. In neighborhoods that have a high concentration of wireless networks, you can encounter sluggish performance online and difficulty connecting to your own network due to the number of signals available. This can typically be resolved by changing your router to a channel with minimal use in your area, but you may also need to make this change on your computer to adjust to any new network settings.

If you are still unsure how to proceed or have any doubts, I would strongly suggest contacting your local computer repair technician or ISP for further assistance. Remember that you can even obtain support through Geek Squad® agents, but you may be charged for any services you seek through your local Best Buy™ store.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
