Hi, I'm assuming you have a 3Com router, start internet explorer (blue e) in the address bar type 192.168.1.1 and press entern the new screen, type in the password to enter the set jup (as it says, admin is the default) click setup wizard, put a dot in pppoa (I'm assuming you're in the UK) click next, put in your user name and password, vpi/vcn 0 and 38 and encapsulation VC MUX, click next put channel to 11, choose an ssid (i leave mine at 3Com), click next, check all the data is correct then click on apply.Now to set up the encryption start internet explorer (blue e) in the address bar type 192.168.1.1 and press enter in the new screen, type in the password to enter the set jup (as it says, admin is the default) click wireless settings on the left hand side of the screen, click setup wizard select wpa-psk from the drop down boxwhere it says pre-shared key, type in a MEMORABLE password and then click apply. Now you will lose your wireless signal. Panic ye not! Click on the smatt TV in the lower right hand side of the screen (this is called the sys-tray) you will now see that the wireless icon which looks a bit like a telly eith 3 yellow arcs coming out of it's right hand side has a red cross on it. Click it once, click view wireless networks and then on the new screen click refresh network list. You will after a few seconds see your network -click on it and then on connect. A new box will come up asking you for the networe key aka password. Enter the memorable password you have just forgotten in the upper and lower boxes and press enter. Et voila! you now have an encrypted wireless network and you can only get onto it if you know the memorable password!

When I skype, the webcam switches off??? Just happened out of the blue.


Everytime or sometimes, depending on internet connection quality, i.e. link quality as well as strength, speed. Normally Skype will bring up some notification as to why. Does it work fine with another Video featured IM client software if yes and internet, enough resources etc is good then come back and let us know. We can investigate it further, cheers.

Hi i have a satellite internet provider and im trying to set up my linksys broadband router so i can hook up my xbox 360 my problem is everytime i hook it up im getting no internet connection can you tell...


hi,
there are two things to be addressed in this case.firstly you have a satellite internet provider which can create consistency issue.then when you connect a xbox to router you need to do a port forwading on linksys router(port forwarding=opening ports in router so your xbox can communicate freely).in order to do the port forwarding you have to log onto router user interface.then go to applications and gaming tab,where you can do the port forwarding.
but before doing so,you have to contact microsoft to know the ip address assigned to the xbox and the ports(numbers) to be opened.
thank you.
