Question about Dell Inspiron 1100 Notebook

1 Answer

Can't connect to the internet!

Heyo, last night my buddy put in a new router with password protection (our neighbors were stealing off of us). since then, i've tried to connect to our wireless and get on firefox/ie.

i've got the correct network name, correct password and both the window's client and my intel wireless client tell me that i AM connected. yet whenever i turn on a browser, it gives me the "looking for" status and won't load web pages. however my roommate's computer works just fine! what's the deal?

Depending on the browser you are using, go to tools>internet options and make sure that there are no proxy settings inserted in your browser to connect. removing all previous settings might just help. Also try right clicking on the wireless connection icon go to properties and check in tcp/ip settings if you have entered any settings. if there are any settings, remove them and try connecting to the internet.

How can I remove my neighbor from my network


Easiest thing to do, Change the password to your router. Once this is done, it will prevent your neighbor from any further access to your router and of course prevent internet access. Most all routers are simply a local web address for access. Example: 192.168.1.1 typed inside a browser address pane will take you inside the router. Check your router for setup procedures.

Have a great night..

Where is the administration located?


You need to encrypt your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from Belkin to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open a browser on your laptop/computer and enter the Belkin's configuration URL. http://192.168.2.1
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password.
You can now configure the wireless settings to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings. To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

How do I prevent my neighbor from using my wireless router?


If you do not have any wireless network security enabled on the router, your neighbor can see this SSID and connect to the network without authorization. While this is generally frowned upon as being unethical, it is technically not illegal as you have "made the network available" by failing to secure it. The easiest way to secure the network is through the use of a WEP key or a WPA pass-phrase. WEP keys are generally 5, 10, 13 or 26 randomly generated characters long. WPA pass-phrases are just that - a phrase such as "The sun is yellow". Either method will prevent unauthorized users from accessing your network. Only those individuals who possess the key or pass-phrase are granted access.

These options is located under the Wireless > Wireless Security tabs from within the router administration.After login you can change the password.

I can not log on to my Linksys router. I want to change my security; i am currently listed as unsecure. which sucks because my neighbors steal my internet!


Do you have any computer connected to the router?
If not then connect the computer to the router with the Ethernet cable.
open the internet browser and in the address bar type the number 192.168.1.
Log in to the router setup page using the default password ' admin'. If admin password is not working then try some different password that you use most commonly.
If nothing is working then you will need to reset the router and reconfigure the router.
