Re: secure

Use the WEP encryption in the wireless settings, any computer that wants to connect to your network will have to know that WEP key, without entering it they will see secured network and not be able to access it.

How do i find security key so I can use laptop on my actiontec network.

The security key is the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryption key that is configured in the router's wireless settings. You need to connect a LAN cable from your computer to your Actiontec, open a browser and enter the router's configuration URL then login to the router then go to the wireless settings for this info or to change the wireless settings.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Actiontec GT704WG doesnt connect to internet

HI! all your computer is connected except for one, you are connected to to the local network but cant get an internet connection, I dont see any problem with your wireless connection bcoz you are connected to the lan, check the security settings of your browser on your windows vista, go to internet option and security, lower it down to medium security, so that you can access the internet or try using other browser like firefox or google chrome.. check your firewall settings as well on your windows vista..

How can I get my WEP key from the router?

You will need to "dial in" to your router. Type into your browser (or obtain this from youir manual). Log in and locate the security section. Note the word used to generate the wep key. Also note what number key you used. Both the security word and the wep key should be visible for you to make a note of for further connections.

Need wireless code

if you mean username and password to setup the connection with security etc you will need to go to your routers page and login with a username and password.
A few of these can be found here.

I want to add a port to my Actiontec router, whats involved in do

I am going to make the assumption that you have the Actiontec GT704WG?

You will need to login in to the router using address:

If you've never changed your username and password there, then you should use the default: admin and password. (You should really change that too!)

Click on Security.

You will need to add the port under the Applications area under the security settings.

There are rules established there to allow your game to play, just follow the screen prompts.
