Use a macro utility such as Macro Express. Here you can basically tell the computer to do anything you want.

Download a trial from here, it really is very useful.

How do I name and secure a netgear r router?

Use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to one of the ports on the router. On the PC, hold down the "Windows" key, and press/release the 'r' key, and release the "Windows" key.
In the window that opens, type 'CMD' and press ENTER.
Type 'IPCONFIG' and press ENTER.
Look for the "IP-V4" address of the "gateway" -- probably something like ''.
Open Internet Explorer, and type '' (or something like that).
Now, login to the router's own web-server, using the router's "default" ID/password.
To secure it, set a new password.
Configure its "wireless" interface, to set an 'SSID' for your wireless network, and to configure it to use 'WPA2' protocol. Configure a password for your wireless network.
Restart the router.

How to install wireless router on windows 7

D-Link routers use the connection from your Internet service provider to create a wireless network for the various Wi-Fi-enabled devices in your home or office.

Once the router is installed, you can truly enjoy the portable capabilities of your laptop or other wireless device.

D-Link routers have a straightforward installation process, despite the advanced technology behind wireless equipment.

So there is no reason to wait around for a technician to help you install your wireless equipment.

Remove the cable that is attached to the "Internet" port on the rear of your DSL or cable modem.

Plug the Ethernet cable into the "Internet" port on the modem and plug the other end of the cable into the "Internet" port on the rear of the D-Link router.

Attach the power adapter to the port on the rear of the router and plug the adapter's cord into a outlet.

Remove the power cord from your modem and wait 10 seconds before plugging it back in. This will reinitialize your modem and force it to establish a connection to the D-Link router.

Your router will immediately begin distributing a wireless network with the "D-Link" network name.

Connect your computer to one of Ethernet ports on the rear of the router and open a Web browser.

Type "" into the address bar and press "Enter." Enter "admin" into the username field and type "admin" again into the password field.

Click "OK" to open the wireless configuration page.

Click "Wireless Security Setup Wizard" to create a wireless password for your router's network. Click "Apply" to save the changes to the router's settings.

hope this helps

How do I set my Netgear FVL328 to be a switch for my network? I have a Dlink DIR-655 connected to my cable modem. But I don't have enough ports for all of my devices. So I connected the Netgear FVL328...

If I understand, the D-link is a switch but you don't have enough ports so you want to use the Netgear to get additional ports.
The way to do it is to use one of the Netgear Lan ports to connect to one of the D-link ports, then use the remaining Netgear ports for your stuff, leaving the WAN port disconnected.
Personally I would use the Netgear as a firewall and connect the D-link to get the additional ports.
Also, Apparently the Netgear and the cable modem or D-link are both running DHCP servers to assign IP addresses to connected devices that need one assigned. You should turn the DHCP server off in whatever unit is being used in a slave fashion. This is done in the netgear by opening a browser and typing in the IP address for the netgear, which is probably, and logging in using username 'admin' and password 'password' unless you changed them.
