Exactly how is this bandwidth being siphoned off? Or do you just have a process on your machine using all the bandwidth?

If your neighbors are getting on your connection, you can use shared key logins under WEP/WPA and you can use MAC address filtering.

Both can be configured in the router itself quite easily. For assistance with the router see Dell's user guide: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/network/p57205/en/index.htm

My ipad 2 will connect but the load time is very slow


Your throughput (speed) is limited by the speed of the service from your provider. Additionally, this speed is divided or shared with every device connected via network cable and devices that are connected wirelessly, too.

To make matters worse, while the wireless N standard provides a faster speed, it only does so at a closer distance. When further away from the router, you may actually get better speed by connecting to the G side of the router (assuming you have G enabled).

Proper router configuration is key. Make sure you haven't locked it down to a slow speed. Install additional wireless access points or upgrade antennas with those that offer higher gain to provide good coverage in your home / space. Locate the wireless routers and access points closest to the areas these drevices will likely be used. Avoid installing in basements, behind brick and concrete walls. Aluminum siding can thwart a signal pretty well, too. Unplug / replace cordless phones that run on 2.4GHz - they can rob bandwidth from your router in the form of interference. Select Ch 1, 6 or 11 for the least interference from other wireless devices as long as they are not already in use by someone close by. Protect your WiFi by NOT broadcasting your SSID and be sure to lock it down with WPA or WPA2 security and a password that does not appear in the dictionary. This will help keep others from stealing your WiFi bandwidth.

All of these suggestions will either increase your throughput / speed or provide additional security and prevent others from stealing your bandwidth. I hope they help!

How do i unlock my d link


The first thing you should do upon completing a wireless connection with a D-Link router is to set up wireless security by accessing the router settings. This protects you against computer hackers trying to gain access to your bandwidth to commit fraud against you or others. It also restricts access away from those who live around you that would rather use your bandwidth instead of paying for their own. Unauthorized users can drastically slow your network speed.

1.Enter the IP address for the D-Link router into a web browser. The default address is 192.168.0.1. This address is typically located underneath the router. Load the page to access the login details.

2.Enter the login details. Refer to your records if necessary. The user name is usually "admin." Enter in your password. A blank password is the default. Load the page to access the router settings. Note: It's important to set a password, if you haven't already done so.

3.Click on the "Set Up" hyperlink and then click on the "Wireless Settings" hyperlink.

4.Scroll down until you see "Wireless Security Mode" and select your desired level of security from the drop-down. The type of security you select depends on the electronic equipment you want to connect to your network and the level of security you want to enable. See Resources for details on the different types of security available. If you are still unsure, WEP offers a decent level of security and works with almost all Wi-Fi enabled components like mobile phones, gaming equipment and laptops.

5.Enter in your desired password into the "Password" field and then enter in the password a second time in the "Re-Enter Password" field. Select "Save Setting" to enable wireless security on your D-Link Router.

How can I connect the RMC30C1 Samsung Remote COntrol to my Samaung 8000 Series TV


No simple answer. I have the series 9 samsung.

Basically you need to connect the tv to the internet, and the remote control to the internet and then connect the remote to the tv. There are a few other ways but this is what I did for my Series 9 TV: Before you start check your wireless internet security number for your broadband router. If unsure check the instructions that came with your wireless router as you will need to type in the internet address and setup wireless security key, otherwise your exposed to other people using your broadband download.

Step One: Menu setting on TV go to PlugPlay- Network - set it up. To find Menu TV Control on remote, flick your finger right to left to scroll to new hidden screen - menu appears! Step Two: Test network connection, (you should set up wireless security (WEP/WAP) to match your broadband security key) Step Three: Services Tab/Setting icon/remote settings/network/wait until it finds network/select network/add security internet WEP/WAP Key - check IP Service Provider if unsure. When Remote is connected to the internet tap bottom right button to connect tv. Tab appears on the tv 'allow or not allow remote' select allow using the TV navigation button. Simple really. Mike

My router is not secured


If your computer is physically connected to your router with a cable then you only need be concerned with traditional security for your PC; up to date anti-virus (with frequent scans) and a firewall.

If you connect wirelessly, however, you should investigate the manual that came with your router and set up WPA encryption/authentication. WEP encryption, if offered is not very secure and can be broken by an experienced person. If possible set up MAC authentication too. You will have to change all computers that need to connect to the router to use the same settings. If you don't set up encryption/authentication then anyone within wireless range could potentially use your router to connect to the internet, stealing your bandwidth.

Cannot connect my lap tp to the internet via my d link router on my desk top


Please indicate which is your issue.

Is your issue with the router's administrative password to used to configure the router?

Please confirm your router's manufacturer and model number.

IF not go to Wireless Configuration

If the router needs to be reset (because of an unknown password) do you know the proper settings to reconfigure the router? If not or even if unsure please provide your Internet Service Provider's name so we can get accurate instructions before proceeding any further on this password issue.

Wireless Configuration

Is your issue with the passphrase/password for a wireless adapter to access a secured wireless network using either WEP or WAP encryption?

Do you have another wireless computer that works? -- you may be able to find the passphrase in the configuration of that machine's wireless adapter avoiding the need to have the administrators password for the router for the time being.
