Why is my wireless connection being so slow?


Check you have your cable modem plugged in to the WAN port, not the LAN port on the router.

If it is still a problem consult your ISP about the set up.

How To Safe Home wireless Connection?


In that time, it is very important that you have a secure connection and wireless secure to protect your personal information. People often neglect to add some simple precautions to prevent someone from hacking into their <b>wireless connection</b> and access to their network.<br /> <br /> Having the security of your<b> wireless connection</b> should be a priority, we use the Internet to access our financial accounts and private or business e-mails.<br /> <br /> What if I told you that someone can view the files right now, while you are online? Would you then believe that the security of the<b> wireless connection</b> was important?<br /> <br /> <b>Unencrypted Connections</b> <br /> <br />The unencrypted connections are easy prey for hackers. Although they are easy to install, so everything is automatically switched on and wireless access router is on. Encrypt the connection is as simple as adding a link WAP or WEP password. If you do not encrypt wireless hackers can easily intercept the largest wireless traffic.<br /> <br /> <br /> <b>No WEP or WPA</b> <br /> <br />Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) system was part of the original specification for Wi-Fi, but some years must be released, hackers figured out how to break it. In 2007, the three broke into a WEP connection cryptoanalysts 1.7 GHz laptop with less than 1 minute. They published their technique and now everyone is a hacker might use to intercept any WEP-protected access.<br /> <br /> WEP was officially replaced by the Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), but many old router supports only WEP. If you have the option to use WPA, you should use it. If you do not have support for WEP on your router and you're concerned about security, you should see if the manufacturer of your router has a firmware update. Otherwise, you must buy a new router.<br /> <br /> <br /> <b>Weak Passwords</b> <br /> <br />Part of the WPA is used with a password, but the password can be manipulated as easily as any other password. This password is a combination of numbers or letters, capitals, and so on. Do not you just put the password in this the fact of having a password because it protects everything else.<br /> <br /> This is not a difficult thing to do, so there is no excuse for not doing correctly. The master password to protect your <b>wireless connection</b> should be at least 12 characters.<br /> <br /> <br /> <b>Snooping Users</b> <br /> <br />Snooping on users could be as simple as your friend comes to your home and connect to the wireless network. It could also be if you were in the hotel which users access is a new WPA, all the hacker can get this close to a secure connection and smell what you're doing. The same can be done within the corporate network. You're all the same blanket of security, and therefore can not browse.<br /> <br /> <br /> <b>Traffic Analysis</b> <br /> <br />People do not realize that hackers can use traffic analysis to find all sorts of interesting information about your Internet usage and communication. Even if the information is encrypted there are ways to hear or even see what you do.<br /> <br />

probably nothing to do with your router. try bi-passing the router and connecting direct to your laptop. yeah same thing... i figured. its probably a setting in your firewall or email program.

Help me with setting up a modem and a router


Are you able to get online directlty from modem? If yes check what is IP address you get from modem, if it is like 192.168.1.xxx, then you need to set connection type as DHCP(not PPPoE), and change router's local IP address to 192.168.2.1 , and reboot router and modem.You can try this steps:
1. Access the router setting via a browser.
2. On Setup, Basic Setup:
- Internet Connection Type unchanged as "Automatic Configuration - DHCP"
- Local IP Address changed from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1
- Settings saved
3. Clicked on Status to check if IP Address value has numbers (not 0.0.0.0). If you have zeroes, click DHCP Release then DHCP Renew.
4. Wired connection to internet OK. Wireless connection from a family PC also OK.
Good to go i thinks.Let us know.
