How can i block intruder?


If the Wireless device isn't secured, Secure it. Set up a SSID and Security Key(password). If it is secured, change the Security Key(password), Use the Linksys Setup Manual found here: http://support.linksys.com/en-us/support/routers/WRT120N Always Secure your Wireless. If unsecure your signal, at best, COULD be use by anyone to connect to the web using your resources and slowing down your activity. At worst, use your signal for nefarious purposes causing you a great deal of Pain and Heartache, and MAYBE the FBI knocking at your door.

My router is password enable before but no its not,how can i make it passsword enable again?i know my password


Here are some basic steps in setting up your Linksys router

Hope it helps!

Please follow the below instructions to protect your device:

  1. Connect your computer to the router using a network cable, or you can connect to the router through a wireless connection. Note that your wireless card in your computer must be enabled.
  2. Open your Web browser. Enter: http://192.168.1.1 in the address field. This is an internal IP address to access your router. Press the Enter Key.
  3. When the password request appears leave the user name field blank. By default, the password is admin.
  4. After logging in, you are not required to change the default administrative password. However, it's fully recommended that you change the default password by clicking on the Administration tab and Management. Enter a new password in the Password field and again in the Re-enter field to confirm.
  5. I recommend setting the Remote Management item as Disable. It will be another layer of security for your router. With this configuration you can only access your router for programming using a standard Ethernet network cabling.
  6. To save the new password, click Save Settings at the bottom of the page.
  7. To avoid intruders accessing your wireless connection we'll start to work with the Wireless tab.
  8. In the Basic Wireless Settings enter a name for your wireless network connection in the Wireless Network Name (SSID). Set the Wireless Broadcast to Disable.

    When wireless clients survey the local area for wireless networks to associate with, they will detect the SSID broadcast by the Router if the Broadcast is enabled. Do not broadcast the Router SSID. It must be Disabled.

    Note that your SSID should be set following similar rules for setting a password, e.g. at least 8 characters, a combination of letters, numbers and non consecutive characters.

    Disabling the SSID broadcast is not a strong security setting, but it can help prevent intruders from sharing your WLAN. Remember to save your settings.

I just installed a wirelss linksys wrt54gs v4 router in the bk bedroom, with my office computer equipment,,my wife has a wireless hp pavilion 6000, that she would like to use in the living room,40 ft away...


Hello
Try updating the firmware on the router.You need to log into the router using 192.168.1.0

Username =admin
password = admin or the word password.

Once in the routers home page check for updates and download and install.Also be sure any firewalls are not blocking the signal.
While your in the router set up a personal wep key for your wireless security.
There is a possibility your lossing signal to outside intruder.

How to protect my belkin 54g wireless connection from intruders. Please help me with that


There is no sure way to stop intruders - if they want to get in they can and will.

However in saying that you can certainly be smarter than the average jo driving around an estate looking for open wireless routers.

First thing first, always change the default password for the router (admin, password). If you can, change the username also (from admin to something else).

Secondly I would recommend that you enable some kind of WPA (or WEP) protection. This basically means that anyone attempting to connect to your wireless will require a "password" to connect to you. The more bits the password has the longer the password is and usally the harder it is to crack (via a brute force attack).

Thirdly - Hide your SSID. All routers by default show to the world they exist. If someone doesnt see it broadcasting generally they wont know its there.

Forthly. I would recommend setting up access lists. On every network card (be it wired or wireless) has a unique identifier called a MAC address. An access list restricts which MAC addresses can physically connect to your router. To find out your mac address click Start - Run. Type CMD. Type IPCONFIG /ALL

Fifthly - This may require a bit more fiddling around between both the router and PC's but may be worth it in the long run. Most routers broadcast whats called DHCP. This is what gives you an internal IP address. If your router allows you setup the DHCP settings to something incorrect EG: Different Subnet mask, DNS settings, Default Gateway. Then setup your home PC's manually to the correct settings. This way if someone does end up cracking your router it will throw another curveball at them as they will not be able to surf the net, view your shared files, without more fiddling.

As far as PC based security goes, I would suggest that you check any shared files or folders you may have and disable, setup how many people can use it at once, permissions etc for them. Best way to check would be Click Start - Run. Type \\127.1.1.0 <- This will connect to your pc via the network.
