SOURCE: Unblocking

Your computer doesn't provide the wireless network, that's done by a wireless router. You may not have one of these already.

Your question is posted under the "Westell 6100 modem" heading. If this is the modem you have, you do not have wireless capability right now. That device is a modem only, providing just a single wired output for one computer.

To set up a wireless network, you need to purchase a wired/wireless router. There are many to choose from, available at retail stores like Target, Best Buy, Radio Shack, etc. Typical price is around $40 to $50.

Full instructions on installing the router and setting up a wireless network will come with your router, but here are the generic steps.

First, connect the router. There's a connector (usually colored yellow, and labeled "ethernet" or "wan") where the cable from your modem connects. That cable is the one that's now connected to your computer's network jack; unlpug it from the computer and connect it to the router. Connect your computer to one of the wired network jacks on the router. There are 4 of them on most routers, usually colored blue. Labels can vary widely; sometimes they are just numbered, other times they say "computer" or "lan". Most routers include a cable so you can make the new connection. Plug in the router's power adapter and you're done.

A setup CD comes with every one of these things. Put the CD in your computer, run the setup program and just follow the steps. It's usually an automatic process.

To keep your neighbors from freeloading, make sure you enable wireless network security. Usually this is part of the setup, but it's sometimes one of the optional steps. There are several options. Use WPA or WPA2 security and a "strong" key (at least 8 characters with a mix of upper and lower-case letters, numbers and special character) that's unlikely to be guessed, and you'll be safe.

Full details will come with your router. Don't be scared off by the process. It's actually pretty simple. And if you have problems just post a follow-up with the brand and model of router you get. There's plenty more help available here to get you going if you need it.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

You will need to block any sites either from the computer using a "nanny" program or if you are using a wireless router there is usually an option in the menu to block sites.

Dynex tv won't give me the option to connect to a wireless network. It defaults to wired

This would normally indicate either a compatibility problem, the wireless network is not broadcasting, or you do not have enough signal to see the network. First thing I would try is most devices that can connect to WiFi have the option of connecting to a network that is not listed. I would try that. If that still does not work I would then try disabling all wireless security on the router just to see if that will work(I do not recommend leaving the security disabled any longer than it takes to test this). If none of that works then the next thing would be to check the signal. If you have a laptop, tablet, or cell phone that is connected to your wireless network then bring it over to the tv. If you loose signal, or have low signal then you will need to find a way to get more signal. Even if you do not see low signal on other devices the tv can still have too low signal partly because the antennas are usually in the back where the signal would be blocked by the tv as well as any other equipment you may have around the tv. Try to make sure that there are no metal objects between the tv and the router, and if possible try to get the router as close to directly behind the tv as possible. The more walls the wireless signal has to go through the weaker the signal will be, and metal can reflect the signal, completely blocking it, as well as causing noise on anything near the metal.

My router takes 3 mins to connect to computer

If you have a large network it will take that long.

Also if you are using a Virtual Private Network or a Ad Hoc Network it takes this long.

A Cluster Server can take this long depending on how many Nodes there are.

My laptop had a virus, therefore, my harddrive had to be wipped and reloaded. at this time, i'm unable to sign on to my wirless connection due to not knowing my site key. how do i reset my sitekey?

Use an Ethernet cable to make a "wired" connection from the network-port on your laptop to one of the LAN ports on your wireless router. Then, "login" to the router, and run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard", to set:
* SSID ("network name")
* encryption-level ('WPA' or better, please)
* password for your network

With those settings, your wireless-adapter should be able to connect.

My internet goes down randomly. I don't know if it my modem or my provider. Any suggestions? I am using an Efficient Networks Speedstream 5100 modem and an D-Link WBR 1310 wireless router.

Are you using wired ports on the router or wireless?
If you are using wireless, do you have a cordless phone nearby and does the use of it coincide with the loss of internet? Have you tried switching to a wired connection for a short while to see if you are having the same problem? Could be intereference issues with your wireless signal. When you look at the available wireless networks, are there more than one? Could be that your PC/laptop is trying to connect to someone else's wireless if their signal strength is stronger.
If you are using a wired connection on the wireless router and still losing connectivity, try a network connection monitoring tool such as WhatsUpGold (free to try). Have it set up to monitor your PC's gateway address (which should be your wireless router) and some other internet site (Google, Yahoo, etc). If your router connection never drops, but the internet site does, good chance that it's your provider.
Make sure you have the latest drivers for your network device (wired or wireless) and the latest version of firmware for your D-Link. Buggy drivers and firmware can definitely cause flakiness.

Can't connect to

Googling that address will get you nothing. There are specific blocks of IP addresses that are not used on the internet. Instead, they are reserved for use in private networks. The addresses in these ranges are not available for use on the internet:

Class A networks: -
Class B networks: -
Class C networks: -

What they are telling you to connect to is your DSL router which must be using the address for it's own web-based configuration tool. If you open up your web browser and type into the address bar and hit enter, it should bring you to their configuration utility that is built into the router.

5200 speedstream blocks my peer to peer sites, mystic island game site, all bittorrent downloads and limewire

Hi Shepherd1880,

First thing:
The computer that you're using for these services needs to have a static IP address configured in your private network and not a DHCP address assigned by the router.

Secondly thing:
Depending on your security policies (computer firewall and/or router), you will need to sure that the settings from your router and/or your PC firewall are not blocking the ports that you need to connect for these services.

Once you know that you have this area covered, you can move forward with the necessary procedures to properly configure your Speedstream 5200 using the link below:

Hope this helps!
