I need to lock my router from others using my wifi


    • 1 Disconnect the power cord from your high-speed modem. Locate the Ethernet port on the back of your modem. If an Ethernet cable is already plugged in, trace the cable to the second device and unplug the cable from it; otherwise, plug one end of an Ethernet cable to the open Ethernet port on your modem.
    • 2 Plug the unused end of the Ethernet cable to the port on the back of the router labeled "modem." Plug a second Ethernet cable into one of the open ports located above the "modem" port; connect this cable to the Ethernet port on your computer.
    • 3 Reconnect the power cord to your modem; wait for the lights on the front panel to turn green before proceeding. Plug one end of the router's power cord into the corresponding port on the back of the device; plug the remaining end into any available electrical outlet.
    • 4 Turn on your computer and log into your operating system as normal. Insert the installation CD into the computer; the installation application should load automatically (if it doesn't, you can find the application by manually browsing the CD's contents).
    • 5 Follow the onscreen instructions; after you have made the initial configurations, click on the option labeled "Security Assistant" on the left side of the installer window. Select the desired security type for your wireless network and click on the button labeled "Next."
    • 6 Choose a network key and enter it into the appropriate field; press "Next" and follow the onscreen instructions.
    • 7 Open your computer's wireless network settings and enter the wireless network name, security type and network key into the appropriate fields. Save your changes. Set-up is now complete.
Tips & Warnings
  • You can access additional settings via the modem's manual configuration interface. Open your web browser and navigate to 192.168.2.1; when prompted for a password, leave the field blank, and click on the button labeled "Submit."For optimal signal strength, choose a location for your router that will be near your computer, with as few walls and other obstacles as possible.

Connected printer to my wireless router, but my pc cant find the printer...Turned off the firewall and even gone into settings and added printer id address, selected port 427 to stay open for...


I am not sure what you are doing, it sounds like you said you connected your printer to your wireless router? Is your printer a wireless printer?, Is it set on wireless setting, and is it connected to the right port? The port should state wireless printer port on your computer. The best way to set up anything wireless or Bluetooth is to use the computer to set it up. Don't plug anything in until you start setting up your item, make sure your printer is turned on and you should find prompts to complete set up. If you have a CD that came with printer you want to install software first or go to manufacturer website and download software for your printer.

    How do I connect the second computer to the internet ?


    If your connecting a second wired computer , all you need to do is plug an ethernet cable on ethernet port of your computer and the other end should go to any of the available ports in the back of your router.

    If you connecting a wireless computer. You just have to look for the wireless icon, its usually seen on the bottom right hand corner.
    Right click on the wireless icon and click view available network,
    Highlight your network name and connect.

    Hi there check that the data cable hasn't fallen out if not change data cable. If still not working check that you are using the correct port within the driver .
    • Goto Printers and faxes
    • Make sure that the printer states Ready not offline
    • If states offline Right Hand click and select use printer Online
    • If not above right click and select properties
    • Once in properties select Ports from the Tab at the top of the window
    • Make sure that you are using the correct Port i.e. LPT1 or USB that the printer is connected to.
    • If you aren't change the port by clicking the appropriate one or add new port.
    • If you are on the right port try reinstalling the print drivers
    I hope this helps you
    Thanks J
