The first step in enabling Remote Desktop Web Connection is to install the necessary software on the host computer. Remote Desktop Web Connection is an optional World Wide Web Service component of Internet Information Services (IIS), which is included by default in Windows XP Professional. IIS responds to requests from a Web browser. Have your Windows XP Professional CD handy, and follow these steps:

1.
Open Control Panel click Add or Remove Programs, and then click Add/Remove Windows Components.
2.
Click Internet Information Services, and then click Details.
3.
In the Subcomponents of Internet Information Services list, click World Wide Web Service, and then click Details.
4.
In the Subcomponents of World Wide Web Service list, select the Remote Desktop Web Connection check box, and then click OK.
5.
In the Windows Components Wizard, click Next. Click Finish when the wizard has completed.
6.
Click the Start button and click Run. Type Net Stop w3svc, and click OK. This temporarily stops the World Wide Web service to keep your system safe while you update it with security patches.
Enabling IIS without installing the appropriate security patches can make your system vulnerable to intruders. For more information, read Microsoft Security Bulletin MS01-018 and Security and Privacy for Home Users.
To check for updates:
1.
Click Start, point to All Programs, click Microsoft Update, and then click Scan for updates. Follow the prompts to install all critical updates. If prompted, restart your computer.
2.
Click Start, and then click Run. Type Net Start w3svc, and click OK. This starts the World Wide Web service.
I highly recommend using Automatic Updates, especially after installing Internet Information Services.

Configure Internet Information ServicesBy default, IIS is identified on your computer by the TCP port number 80. The steps in this section change the TCP port number and make it much more difficult for a potential attacker to communicate with your computer. The steps in this section are optional, but if you do follow them, you'll dramatically improve the security of your system. If you are already using your computer as a Web server, you should leave the TCP port number at the default setting of 80.
1.
Open Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click Administrative Tools. Double-click Internet Information Services.
2.
In the ISS snap-in, expand your computer name, expand Web Sites, right-click Default Web Site, and then click Properties.
3.
On the Web Site tab, change the value for TCP Port. Enter a number between 1000 and 65535 that you can remember easily, such as the month and day of a birthday or anniversary. You'll need to know the TCP Port when you connect to the computer in the future.
4.
Click OK, and close the Internet Information Services snap-in

Configure Remote DesktopTo connect using Remote Desktop, you must have a user account with a password. If you don't yet have a password on your account, create a password by opening Control Panel, and clicking User Accounts. Click your account, click Create a password, and follow the prompts. After you have a password, follow these steps to enable Remote Desktop:
1.
Right-click My Computer, and click Properties.
2.
On the Remote tab, click the Allow users to connect remotely to this computer check box,

3.
Click Select Remote Users, and then click Add.
4.
In the Select Users dialog box, type the name of the user and then click OK. Click OK again to return to the System Properties dialog box, and then click OK to close it.

Configure Your RouterIf you use a router to connect to the Internet, you probably need to configure it to allow the Remote Desktop connection to your computer. For more information on routers and firewalls, see my Internet Firewalls column. You need to forward two ports to your Windows XP Professional-based computer: TCP port 3389, which Remote Desktop requires, and the port you specified in the TCP Port field in Internet Information Services (or TCP port 80 if you did not change the default). If you use Internet Connection Firewall (and you should!), see How to Manually Open Ports in Internet Connection Firewall in Windows XP for instructions on allowing traffic by TCP port.
Another helpful website for setting up your Router is; www.PortForward.com

Connect to Your DesktopComputers are identified on the Internet using a unique IP address. To connect to your home computer from the Internet, you'll need to know your home IP address. Visit one of these sites from your home computer to learn your IP address: What Is My IP, What Is My IP.com, or Atlantic PC Solutions. Your IP address may change occasionally, so always check your IP address before you plan to connect. When you're ready to connect to your host computer, follow these steps:
1.
Open Internet Explorer, and enter the URL http://ipaddress:port/tsweb/. For example, if your IP address is 192.168.1.120, and you chose the TCP Port 1374, you would enter the URL http://192.168.1.120:1374/tsweb/.

2.
If you're prompted to install the Remote Desktop ActiveX control, click Yes.

3.
On the Remote Desktop Web Connection page, click Connect. You don't need to fill in the Server field. If you leave the Size field set to Full-screen, the remote desktop will take over your local desktop.

4. Enter your user name and password at the Windows logon prompt, and then click OK. You'll see your desktop, complete with any windows that were left open the last time you used the computer.

When you're done, disconnect by closing the browser, or clicking the X at the top of the screen in full-screen mode. Be sure to close all browser windows. Your user name and password aren't stored, so you don't have to worry about someone else accessing your system.

My dynex won't connect to my laptop


Try to change the channel first on your router. Access the router's admin page through http://192.168.1.1 and look for wireless tab and change the channel to 11. Save the settings. On your laptop, verify if your wireless settings is matching the router's wireless settings like the SSID and the security or encryption used.

I can not get on the net via my router. I can get out on my laptop directly connected to DSL modem. what am i doing wrong?


That means your router is not yet configured for internet access. If you are on DSL, your modem's IP and router's IP might be conflicting with each other. You need to change the router's IP address. If not, you can simply configure PPPoE settings on the router's admin page. If you can open the router's setup page, look for Internet Connection Type, choose PPPoE and provide the information that it asks you like username and password given by your DSL provider.

Dynex DX-E401 Router setup


Here is the manual, and it states that to get into the router you use admin as the user name and password is blank. I would suggest that you reset the router. The reset button is on the back next to the power connector. Use a paper clip and push the reset button in for about 30 seconds till the lights flash. Then you should be able to log into the setup page and set it up .

Wired dynex router suddenly started interfering with my internet connection.


Verify your router is connected to a standard grounded outlet. Check that the Internet cable is connected to the WAN port on your router, and check the WAN light on the front of your router is illuminated. Check that the LAN lights are on.
Power cycle your router by unplugging the DSL/Cable Modem from the power, then unplug the router and power off your computers. Then, plug in the DSL/Cable Modem to the wall and wait until all the lights are on and none of them are blinking. Power on the DX-E401 router and wait until all the lights are on. Now, power on one computer and verify the Internet connection.
You can verify your router is working properly by sending an echo request to it and verifying the response you get.
If you are a Windows user go to Start, select the Run option and in the dialog box type in CMD. Once there, type in ping 192.168.0.1 and you should get 0% loss as a response.
If these do not help, the router is likely to have malfunctioned, requiring repair or replacement.

Go out to you local electronics store and purchase a wireless router , or Wireless Access Point (AP) , this way you will create a wireless connection by following the instructions given when you purchase the Wireless AP .

Dynex 4 port e401 router


Are you pushing a lot of data through the router for the few hours when it works? I've run into this with some routers where the router will just hang because I'm trying to push too much data through it and it's little CPU gets overwhelmed. Also make sure it's not overheating...that does the same thing.

To answer your question, routers do not have any built-in timer (at none that I have seen).
