Question about Toshiba ACCESS POINT HOTSPOT-WRC 1000 hs (pa3227u-1ths)

1 Answer

Toshiba Hotspot WRC-1000HS WiFi Router - says MAC on it.

I just purchased the Toshiba Hotspot WRC-1000HS wireless router and when I opened it and started reading the instructions (I'm new to wireless connection routers) it says MAC all over the place and the bottom of the router has 4 MAC serial numbers on them. Of course I do not have a MAC computer or laptop and wondered if this router is going to work with my system. I'd like to replace the DSL router I have (Westell by Verizon) and have just the Toshiba (wired to my desktop and then my Toshiba Satellite laptop is of course wireless.) Bottom line .... is it going to work for me?

Tip

Setting up Mac Filtering on your Wireless Router


If you have any questions on which network security to use, please see my tip, about wireless network security, also see, a word on passwords.
Note: these instructions are generalized for most common routers, if you are having trouble with your router, please post a question providing your routers model and what you are trying to set up, thank you.

First you must log into your router to change the settings. To do this, you need to user your web browser and type in the IP address of your router in the address bar like this: http://192.168.2.1/ Note, the numbers I used in the example are the most common default IP address for routers, look in the user manual for your router for your IP address, if it is 67.73.736.93 for example (I dont think any routers use that but its an example) then you would use: http://67.73.736.93/
Also please use the user manual for your router for information on how to change your routers default administrator password, this will prevent others from changing your network settings.
Now you will be at the main page for your router. There should be a column on the left or at the top of the page with options.
Find and click on "Mac filtering" or "Mac address control"
There will be a column labeled Mac addresses, and a set of options including "allow" or "deny", you want to select "allow", this will deny connections that are not on the list, and allow connections that are on your list, the "deny" option does the opposite.
Now you need to obtain the Mac address of any computers or devices you want to access your network.
For PC: click start, run, type "cmd", hit enter, this will open up command line. it should say something like "c:/" with a black background. type "ipconfig /all" A lot of text will come up, scroll through and find a device with the word wireless or wifi in its name, this is your wireless adapter. Below that will be a line that says either "Mac address" or "physical address" followed by your mac address, that will look like this: 00:K3:9D:93:J3:9H (for example only, basically its six sets of 2 characters separated by :'s) Write this down
For Mac: go to applications, utilities, terminal. type "ifconfig" A lot of text will come up, scroll through and find a device with the word wireless or wifi in its name, this is your wireless adapter. Below that will be a line that says either "Mac address" or "physical address" followed by your mac address, that will look like this: 00:K3:9D:93:J3:9H (for example only, basically its six sets of 2 characters separated by :'s) Write this down
Do this with all the computers you want to access the internet, then you will have a list of Mac addresses. Go back to your router setup page, and enter them all into the settings. when you click "done" or "apply changes" the router will restart.
Congratulations, you're done!!!

Unable to connect my blackberry to wifi. it says unable to authenticate network.


Try a hard reset: With power ON, remove the back cover and pull out the battery. Wait about a minute then replace the battery and cover. Power up and wait patiently through the long reboot 5 minutes.

Also check the wifi encryption is compatible with your phone?
Maybe an option to goto a cafe with a wifi hotspot and try logging in there ... does that work?
cheers.

I have broadband thru verizon on my netbook(windows7 OS). can i "jump" off that connection with my home pc, wireless capable, win xp OS? meanoing can i broadcast n\broadband signal so i can surf internet...


Yes, easy way would be through Connectify. It turns almost any Windows 7 OS PC into a virtual wifi router. The software is free. Basically, it will share whatever internet connection your netbook is getting via a virtual wifi hotspot that your other wireless devices can connect to.
