Tried to secure LAN, ended up efin it up...bad

Ok, i started off trying to secure my LAN. messed with some kinda MAC address and enabled some SSID thingy. Next thing I know my laptop and pc are unable to even recognize my internet, even when i plug the ethernet directly to my laptop. i tried to disable those things but they just enabled again. I talkd to the lady from comcast and fixed my pc by screwing with some settings and bypassing the router,but the same trick isn't working for my laptop. I thought maybe the router just fried, but none of this happend before i messed with it...

Before you start configuring the WRE54G you need to consider the following...


Before you start configuring the WRE54G you need to consider the following factors:

1. Make sure that there are no wireless security enabled on the router like WEP and wireless MAC filtering. If you have them enabled try to disable them first. Check if there is a wireless computer that is currently working on your network.
2. Make sure that the SSID broadcast is enabled.
3. Then Hit the Automatic Configuration button on the WRE54G for about 3-5 secs.

The wireless computer should be connected to the SSID of the Range expander.
The range expander doesn’t have any DHCP server. The IP address that will be assigned to the computer will be 0.0.0.0 or the Auto-configuration IP 169.254.xxx.xxx.
Assign a static IP address on the wireless card. IP address should be 192.168.1.5, Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway 192.168.1.1
To assign static IP address on your machine you follow the steps below:
Windows 9 xs and ME:

Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Network > Highlight the TCP/IP of the Wireless LAN card you’re using > Properties
Under IP Address TAB:
Specify an IP address: 192.168.1.5
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Click the GATEWAY TAB:
Under New Gateway: Enter 192.168.1.1 then click on Add.
Then Hit Ok All the way out… hit yes if it’ll ask you to restart

Windows XP and 2000
Go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > Right Click Local Area Network Connection that you are using > Properties > Internet Protocol TCP/IP > Properties > Use the following IP address:
IP Address: 192.168.1.5
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
Then click ok all the way out.
Try to ping the Range expander. Go to start and then run type CMD for Win XP/2000, COMMAND for Win ME and below. On the black screen that will pop-up type PING 192.168.1.240 (Default IP address of the Range expander.
If the ping test was successful then you can access the setup page of the Range expander. If not, try to reset the Range expander for 10 seconds and then power cycle it.
To reset the range expander, follow the steps below:
Hold down the reset button for 10 seconds then unplug power while holding down reset...plug it back in after 5 seconds then wait for 10 more seconds before releasing the reset button.
To access the setup page of the expander, Open your Internet Explorer and please go to http://192.168.1.240
If will prompt a username and password box, leave the username blank password is admin.
On the setup screen of the expander, you can set the same exact settings on your router. SSID, Channel, WEP settings should be the same on the router and you need to specify the WLAN MAC Address of your router to the space provided for the WLAN MAC address on the setup page of the Range Expander.
Once you applied the settings, the lights on the expander should be both blue.
You can now set your IP address back to obtain an IP automatically and Obtain DNS address automatically.
Range expander should be working after performing the troubleshooting steps above.

If you have an Ethernet port on the WRE54G, try to connect the range expander directly to your computer with static IP address then ping the WRE54G. Make sure that you are not running any firewall and Internet security in your computer. If you were able to ping the 192.168.1.240 try to access it through the Internet Explorer and configure it from the there. Follow the steps that I gave to you to configure the wireless settings of the range expander.

Make sure that you have checked all the wireless security settings on your router. Make sure that you have those disabled. Try to set static IP address in your computer and try to ping the 192.168.1.240 and see if you can get a reply.

To set static IP follow the steps below:

Windows 9x and ME:
Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Network > Highlight the TCP/IP of the Wireless LAN card you’re using > Properties
>>>Under IP Address TAB:
Specify an IP address: 192.168.1.10
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
>>>Click the GATEWAY TAB:
Under New Gateway: Enter 192.168.1.1 then click on Add.
Then Hit Ok All the way out… hit yes if it’ll ask you to restart

Windows XP and 2000

    To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

    To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
    1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
    2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
    3. Enter the router setup, login and password
    4. Change the admin password
    5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
    6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
    7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
    8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
    9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
    10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

    I security enabled my belkin eb547d but when i put in the password it tells me I have to code it as wep or wpa


    The passphrase is a method of setting up the encryption setting in the wireless router. Go into the router configuration and then into the wireless settings. I suggest you use WPA encryption as WEP is older and weaker encrypyion method.

    To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -

    How secure my network


    When you first setup your wireless router you should change the login password and then the wireless configuration, setup WAP or WAP2 encryption (WAP2 is the strongest encryption) and change the SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
    For further wireless protection enable MAC address filtering. The MAC address of the wireless card is entered in the router MAC address filter table, which allows only the wireless card with this MAC address to connect to the router.
    Also if your router has a firewall then you should enable this feature.
    The wireless card on the computer needs to be configured with the wireless router's settings. The LAN cable can be removed and the computer communicates wirelessly with the router.
    All the computers on your network should have anti-virus program installed and firewall enabled.

    I need to secure my wireless router


    When you first setup a wireless router you need to connect the wireless router to the computer with a LAN cable.
    Then you open a browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer and on the address bar you type the IP configuration address of the wireless router eg. for Netgear and D-Link wireless it is http://192.168.0.1
    Enter the default login name and password.
    You should change the password and you should setup WAP or WAP2 encryption (WAP2 is the strongest encryption) and change the SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
    For further wireless protection enable MAC address filtering. The MAC address of the wireless card is entered in the router MAC address filter table, which allows only the wireless card with this MAC address to connect to the router.
    The wireless card on the computer needs to be configured with the wireless router's settings. The LAN cable can be removed and the computer communicates wirelessly with the router.
