How do I set up this modem as a secured network .

I have been using this modem ( WA3002G4 supplied by Data One) for surfing the internet as an 'unsecured' network.
Recently I suspect it is being accessed by the neighbours .

How does one create a 'secured' network with this modem ??

    Thanks Vedhick,



    I got the IP address from 'ipconfig' (which happened to be the Linksys address 192.168.1.100) and typed it into the browser address window -

    . However I got the Google page for this address with other links instead of the User Name /Password windows.

    The router is a UTstarcom (Made in China) wireless, model No. WA30002G4



    Thanks for your help in advance

Is your modem wired or wireless?
if it is wired you donot have to worry but if it is wireless and the network is unsecured you need to perform the following steps.
if your computer is using the same wireless connection then you will loose the internet connection wirelessly as you will need to setup the configuration with the computer again..
1st u need to find the ip address of the computer..
click on start,then click on run in the box type in cmd and hit enter
now you will see a black box in that box type in ipconfig and hit enter
out of all the results you will see something which says default gateway there will be numbers beside it make a note of those number(eg it will be something like 192.168.1.125..this is just an example)
go to the browser page and type those numbers in the addres box,
it should open a user name and password box,type in admin/admin as the user name and password,
there you will see a tab for wireless under that tab you will see the option for security and then you need to make it secured..
YOU CAN TELL ME WHO IS THE MANUFACTURER OF THE MODEM SO THAT I CAN EXACTLY TELL YOU WHAT YOU NEED TO DO....

    thanks...
    i think you were typing in the ip address we need to type the default gateway in the address box,
    when you do ipconfig you will get default gateway as well,
    once you type now you should get the ustar page which will tell you to put the username and password,
    the default user name and password is admin/admin,
    once you are in the router page,on the left side you will see an option that says wireless,
    click on wireless and you will see on the right hand side which will say authentication type it might be disabled click on the drop down list and choose enable....
    after that choose wep and then put in the security key.usually it will be 10 or 21 alphanumber character or just numbers i suggest you to sure 10 keys...then save the settings and your network will be secured...
    make sure the computer is wired to the router while you make the network secured after that if you have any laptop
    that is wireless you need to configure the new settings to connect to it...

    im sure will get it this time....

Belkin N300 Surf problems


The router has to be manually configured in the gui page within it to allow remote wireless access point. This is not done by default as a security feture on routers. The way to find out the ip address of the router to set up a wireless access point or remote configuration is to go on your machine that has active working internet and click start, all programs, accessories, right click comand prompt, select run as administrator, confirm, then once in comand prompt admin, typ in ipconfig /all, then look for default gateway in the first list shown this is the ip of your router. Hope this helps.

How to Set Up a Netgear WGR614 V5 Wireless Router
Netgear routers--like all wireless routers--give you the opportunity to access the Internet with your laptop or wireless-adapted computer from virtually anywhere in your house within range of the router's WiFi signal. Though slightly different in appearance from other router models by Netgear, the WGR614 V5 acts similar in its setup process as others such as the WGT624 or WNR1000 series routers.
Things You'll Need:
Netgear WGR615 V5 routerNetgear resource CDEthernet wireBlue network wireModemComputer
1 Prepare to install the Netgear router. Log off and shut down your computer system. Turn your Internet modem off and/or disconnect its power supply from the electrical outlet. Take out the contents of the Netgear router box and verify that all the essentials are present: the resource CD, the yellow wire and the router itself.
2 Connect the Internet modem to the Netgear WGR614 v5 router. Locate the yellow Ethernet wire running from one end of the Internet modem to the computer's Ethernet port. Unhook the computer-end of the Ethernet wire and insert this end into the port on the router labeled "Internet." After inserting, confirm that the wire runs from the modem to the router.
3 Connect the Netgear router to the computer. Grab the blue cable supplied with the router. Securely insert one end of the blue cable into one of the four "LAN" ports on the router (the "LAN" ports are labeled with numbers from 1 to 4). Insert the other end of the blue wire into your computer's Ethernet port.
4 Start your network devices. Turn on or connect your Internet modem to an electrical outlet. Wait for at least two minutes to allow the modem to fully boot. Plug the Netgear router into the wall or electrical outlet as well, and wait one to two minutes. Turn on your computer.
5 Look at the Netgear router to verify that all lights are on. The "power," "Internet" and "wireless" icon symbols on the front of the router should be solidly lit. One of the four "LAN" ports should also be lit with either a green or amber color.
6 Insert the resource CD that came with your Netgear router to launch the "welcome" screen. Select "Router Setup" from the menu to begin the "Smart Wizard" setup application. Read and follow the setup steps, including naming your SSID (secure set identifier) or "network name" and setting a level of wireless security. Finish the setup process, ending with the registration of your Netgear router.
7 Verify that your Netgear router has been set up correctly. Open an Internet browser from both the computer that is connected to the router and on a computer that has a wireless card or adapter. Surf to your favorite Internet sites to verify your connection is working. Open your "network connections" utility on your operating system and make sure it shows that you're connected to your own wireless network.

Need network security key or passphrase for my netgear DG834Gv4/DG834GBv4 !!! PLEASE( IP 192.168.0.1)


LOGIN
There is a login key for the router that can be accessed by opening the
address http://192.168.0.1 as described: after the login all settings inside the router can be changed.
Note: use a wired connection when going into the routers' ip address.

When you can not login with the default password, reset the device:

Restoring the Default Configuration and Password
This section explains how to restore the factory default configuration settings, changing the
router’s administration password to password and the IP address to 192.168.0.1. You can erase the
current configuration and restore factory defaults in two ways:
• Use the Erase function of the Web Configuration Manager.
• Press the WPS button and Wireless button on the side of the router simultaneously. You can
use this method for cases when the administration password or IP address is not known.

Resetting to Factory Default Settings
You can use this method for cases when the administration password or IP address is not known.
To restore the factory default configuration settings:
1. Press and hold the WPS button and the Wireless button on the side of the router until the Test
LED turns on (about 10 seconds).
2. Release the buttons and wait for the router to reboot.

WIRELESS SECURITY + PASSPHRASE
The wireless security is a network name for wireless connection called
SSID: the identification name of your router.
The passphrase is used for a secure password getting permission to have wireless data transfer from the router to the computer and vice versa. ( No internet connection so far: only Local Area Network [LAN] )


MODEM
Because the device is a router / ADSL modem you'r able to setup the
modem part for connection on a telephone line to the internet / Wide Area Network [WAN] .
You should use passwords from the Internet Service Provider [ ISP ] enter and save them in the modem section of the device.

Please help...internet won't connect


You may be running into a problem of your ISP only allowing one computer on the internet. while the internet is on can you access the internet from the desktop comcast originally setup?  If so that is more then likely your problem.

I have comcast myself and they told me they do not allow home networks. I fixed that problem by using the mac address cloning feature in my router.

The setup cd is also junk, all you should really need to do is:
1. unplug modem, router, and turn off computers
2. Plug modem into router
3. Plug computers into router (don't worry about wireless right now)
4. Turn on modem, wait 20 seconds or so for lights to set,
5. Turn on router. again wait for lights to set
6. Turn on ONE computer that is hard wired into the router
7 Try to surf the net.
8. If successfull try to connect wireless computers (Without using cd) and see if they surf.

If not call comcast and see if your computers are trying to obtain real-world ip's instead of LAN ip's like they should.
If so, you'll need to enable DHCP on the router.
