Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router

1 Answer

Purchased Linksys Wireless N Router and it came with 30 day trial Network Defender. Just about every site I go to, a parental control comes up, how do I remove this? Do I have to do it from the computer the router is hooked up to or can I do it from the wireless?

If you can do it either way as long as you can get into the router's configuration setup.

Want to uninstall home defender


It's really complicated to remove Windows Defender. The best solution is to simply disable it: Control Panel->in the search bar type "defender"->Click on Windows Defender->Tools->Options 1. Automatic Scanning->Uncheck 2. Real time protection->Uncheck all 3. Administrator->Uncheck "Use this program"

Router hookup


Router setup
If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then:
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.


Customize the Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
To change the router’s SSID or the wireless network’s name, click here.
To change the router’s channel, click here.
To enable the wireless security on the router, click here.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Network parental control


If you want dynamic monitoring/filtering of the web traffic you might need to install software on all the PC's! When it comes to the Playstation 3, there should be settings on there that you can set! Check out this page : http://www.gamerdad.com/detail.cfm?itemID=3558 When it comes to the dynamic filtering of sites, the most highly rated Parental Control Software is Content Protect(Now NetNanny)! http://www.netnanny.com/ By dynamic filtering, it means the the parental control mechanism, automatically blocks sites due to content(it updates over the internet!) The router can only do so much! :( hope this was helpful, regards, babb
