Internet suddenly slow? INET light going nuts in the modem?


Someone may have hacked into your router and is using up your bandwidth.<br /> <br /> go into the router and change (or enable) the security settings. <br />If you don't require wireless, DISABLE it.<br /> unplug and reconnect the modem/router<br /> reset the computer.<br /> <br /> PS - don't think that just because your wireless security is configured that someone can't hop onto it.<br /> I have an old P-III laptop that can crack a 128 bit WEP key in 8 minutes!<br /> Disable the wireless if you don't need it or change to WPA/WPA2 personal.<br /> <br /> It may even be that someone hasn't hacked in to your system YET but was attempting to...one of the tricks to hacking a WEP key is to inject signals at a high rate of speed which would bring your router to a crawl.<br />

I can't find my WEP Key


you can get your WEP by logging to your router via cat 5 cable.
open internet explorer
browse to http://192.168.1.1
default login is blank password is admin
click on wireless click on wireless security
WEP passphase is displayed.
i highly recommend you change WEP to WPA. WPA is much more secured to WEP.

The access point's security settings are not supported by the Nintendo DS


WEP and WPA are types of security that are used to protect home wireless networks. WEP is the only security setting that works with the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite. WPA and WEP are both compatible with the Nintendo DSi. If you are not sure how to find your router's WEP or WPA Key or if you have problems entering it into your Nintendo DS, try the following tips:
so if your wifi is WPA. you wont be able to use wireless
but if your wifi is WEP you can.
WEP is not recommended because it is not secure. Easy to hack

What's the difference between WEP and WPA? What should I pick?


WEP is a weak securtiy protocol that is outdated and can be easily broken

WPA is a newer security protocol that is much harder to break with AES encryption

WPA is always recommended mode for operation over WEP.

Use WPA2 which is latest version if it is supported by device.

How do I put an encryption on my linksys router?


Securing your wireless network is a simple process, which generally does not require a lot of time. This can be done by:
  • Enabling WEP or WPA on the Router
  • Enabling Wireless MAC filter on the Router
  • Disabling SSID Broadcast on the Router
NOTE: The wireless security modes available may vary depending on the model of the router and wireless adapter you are using.
Enabling WEP on the Router
Wired Equivalent Protocol (WEP) is a type of wirelesssecurity which does not change. It provides comparable confidentialityto a traditional wired network. There are two types of WEP you canchoose from:
a. WEP 64-bit: This type of WEP consists of 10-hexadecimal codes. To enable WEP 64-bit, click here.
b. WEP 128-bit:This type of WEP consists of 26-hexadecimal codes hence it is moresecured compared to WEP 64-bit. To enable WEP 128-bit, click here.
Enabling WPA on the Router
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is a type of wireless securitywhich is dynamic in nature. Meaning, it changes depending on the timerenewal you will specify. Hence, WPA is more secured compared to WEP.
  • Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (WPA-TKIP) – utilizes a stronger encryption method and incorporates Message Integrity Code (MIC) to provide protection against hackers.
  • Advanced Encryption System (WPA-AES) – utilizes a symmetric 128-bit block data encryption
To enable WPA, click here.
Enabling Wireless MAC Filter on the Router
Wireless access can be filtered using the MAC address of thewireless devices transmitting within your network’s radius. You caneither permit or prevent specific wireless computers access to yourwireless network.
To permit wireless computers to connect to your wireless network, click here.
To prevent wireless computers to connect to your wireless network, click here.
Disabling SSID Broadcast on the Router
Disabling the SSID broadcast is one way of securing your wirelessnetwork. This procedure will prevent other users from detecting yourSSID, or your wireless network name, when they attempt to viewavailable wireless networks in your area. For instructions, click here.
