Router not blocking specified site.

We have a Lynksis wireless g broadband router and through the set-up site of our router I have specified a specific website to block, but even though it 'shows' that this site is blocked, it is NOT and full access is still granted. HOW DO I BLOCK THAT SITE?

There are a couple ways you can do this.

  1. Check the obvious and make sure that if you are blocking by DNS name that you have included wild cards to handle any virtual hosts running on that domain and that you are blocking all ports that could potentially generate the content, not just port 80.
  2. Make sure that you do not have spy ware locally on the LAN PC's that is connecting you to the site or broadcasting content. If you are initiating contact with the server from internal PC's then your inbound policies won't matter.
  3. If all else fails and you can trace the site to an IP, you can always block the IP on your router directly for all ports, set the etc/hosts file on each machine in your organization to redirect that IP to localhost, or set your DNS server to redirect that name/ip to a fake IP internally.

Hi, i have a problem in lynksis WRH54G. I have changed my network service provider a few days ago, starting that day i couldn't use my lynksis wireless router anymore. it looks like it's working properly...


You need to reconfigure your WAN settings of router to your new internet service provider settings.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on WAN settings in general setup and set as your service provider settings.If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. . Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

How do I reset my security password for my lynksis wireless router.


You simply use a paper clip or pencil to push the reset button on the back. Pull the power plug, then replug in (while holding the button) for a good 30 seconds. It will erase your password and set it back to "admin" Also note, it will erase your configuration on the router. Please leave positive feed back for me.

My lynksis router can detect the signal of the broadband connection but it cannot access the internet. when u try to browse any website it always says 'Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): The server...


This sounds like the router does not have DNS settings.

Check the web configuration to make sure that the DNS settings are valid. If there are DNS servers in there, try changing them to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 and see if you still get the same problem.

Hope this helps!

I need a security code for my new laptop and i do not know what my current one is on my main lynksis router


There is no way to recover your code. To regain access to your wireless router, on the back of the router near the power plug will be a very small hole, should say "reset" or something similar below it, with the power turned on put a paper clip in the small hole and push till you feel it click, this will reset all the settings in your router back to factory, you will need to go back and setup your router again.

Lynksis Wireless Router does not stay connected to the Internet.


I suggest checking the documentation of your linksys router in the linksys site. Get the manual and that would tell you how to set it up. Regarding the router being broken, it is possible. Are you wired or wireless to the router?

Log in to your router and select the wireless tab. Then click on wireless security. Set your security mode, encryption type and create a key that will be needed to connect to the router wirelessly. Administration tab should be right next to status tab.
