By default, the firewall on it should block all incoming connections from the WAN or internet network port (good thing). Make sure you do two things : 1. Change the default password on the router, and 2. secure your wireless using WPA2 for authentication and AES or TKIP for encryption. Also, rename your SSID to something that doesn't give away that fact that your router is a buffalo. I'm paranoid, so I donot broadcast my SSID...if you are too, then this is a good option.

Nintendo switch not connecting internet


Do you have wireless security enabled on your router?

If so, you have to get the MAC address of your Nintendo and add it to your routers wireless security tab.

Some people do this as an additional level of security on their routers. Meaning, you need to know the wifi password AND the MAC address of your device needs to be on the routers access list page or it won't let you on.

I do not know what type of cable and hoe to hook to pc


Most modern computers have a Network Interface Card (NIC) that used an industry standard RJ45 network jack (8 wire connection similar to a telephone RJ11 connector)
Most people now have broadband service (Cable Modem or DSL Modem) that has RJ45 connections. you also may have a Router between the computer and the Modem to share that internet connection with other computers. The router will also have RJ45 connections. Routers can also be wireless, and you can connect via 802.11 A/B/G/N wireless connection if your computer has an 802.11 standard wireless card.
So, once you detail the brand and model computer and the type fo network conenction/equipment you have, I can give more detailed answers.

How is your internet security set? Try resetting your router to factory specs and see if your laptop works. I know it seems weird that only one computer wont connect, but try a different router, and try a different security setting within your wireless router.

I have a new laptop computer and am wondering how I log on to internet as it is asking for my access/security code?


I assume you are connecting thru wireless or wifi. If its asking for the security code then you have to know the security password for the SSID on that wifi router. Many Wifi routers have security passwords before you can access the internet. If you are connecting to your wireless router then just disbale the security password but will be disadvantageous because other people can connect to your router. Just ask the person for the password who initially setup your wireless router.

Can not connect to internet thorough my dlink 614 router It tells me the internet security key is incorrect even though i know it is not


Hi,

Please access the web interface of the router and confirm the security key. Also, you can try to change the security key. It can be a possibility that your computer is not synchronizing properly with the current security settings.

If you find that you are putting the right security key then please change the security type to wep 64 bit or wep 128 bit and configure a new key. Also, change the SSID or the network name and try to connect.

In case of any issues please let me know which windows you are running and the security settings on the router.

Thanks,

Rashish

Here's how to connect the router.

From your broadban modem, connect the ethernet cable to the Internet/WAN port of the router. Then using another ethernet cable, connect your laptop to port 1 on the back of the router. Now run the setup CD that came with your router. After setting it up, it will tell you to disconnect the ethernet cable from your laptop to try the wireless function. Good Luck!

Ps3 security code


The security code, that is called network key, is stored inside the router.
Check your router manual, it will tell you how to connect to the router using Internet Explorer.
You put router IP number on Internet explorer bar and open router control panel, then you go into wireless settings, and there you find the key.
