Question about Actiontec MegaPlug Network Adapter

1 Answer

Can't access certain websites---ex. Amazon and Ebay

Can access Ebay through a "back door" link and then can access the entire site. Amazon, however, cannot access it at all. Other websites, no problem (at least that I have found yet).

Try opening internet explorer

Click Tools in the menu bar (top of the windows)
If you cannot see tools tap the <alt> key
bottom left of your keyboard

Click Tools --> Windows Update

Choose express and see if an update for .net shows

then click review and install
click install

If .net framework does not show try the update again but choose custom

one the left click optional updates

post back if problems

I have a belkin wireless G+ router work with a power link adapter?

Just use the unused one to create an access point.To do so you need to login on the web UI of the router and change to an access point instead of a infrastructure.

I need to know how to make my printer print after installing TWC fiber-optic Internet. It worked great with AT&T broadband. TWC guy said I needed a basic router, without DSL, to attach to the...

First off I believe the usb port on the back of that access point is for management only, and will not connect a device...not positive though. If this gateway is not itself a wireless access point. The best thing you can do is purchase a wireless router/switch. In this configuration you would plug the gateway you received from Time Watner into the new router, Then you can plug any wired device directly into the new router, as well as broadcast your own secure wireless network. A good recommendation would be a D-LINK HD1000 Media router. It is very versatile, not to mention I just picked one up from EBAY for 19.99 with free shipping, took a little while to arrive though. But any router would work, I only suggest a wireless router because of the versatility, and I suggested the HD1000 because it is equipped with a usb port and SD card slot for sharing media(pictures, videos, music, printers...ect..) across your entire network. Hope this helps.

My LINKSYS as for password, it is locked

Press and hold the reset button of the Linksys router using a pointed object (like a paper clip or pen) for 30 seconds.

The reset button is located in the back of the Linksys router closest to an Ethernet port.

The button is recessed to protect you from accidentally resetting the modem.

Unplug the Linksys router while pressing the reset button.

Shut down your computer for one minute.

Plug the Linksys router back into the wall outlet.

Reboot your computer.

Open your web browser to access a website.

Type the below in the address bar if you want to reset your password:

A prompt from the site will request a user name and password.

The user name stays blank, or, in some models, is "admin".

Navigate to the security tab. Input your new password to protect unauthorized access to your router

hope this helps

Wireless adapter gives limited websites

hi debbie
the fact that your computer has internet access shows that your adapter and router is working well

the reason you may be denied access to certain websites may be because of feature called trusted sites in internt explorer

if you hav downloaded mozilla it would import setting from IE so trusted sites would remain

to disable this in ie go to tools>> internet options >>> connections >>> put it on accept all cookies and disable trusted sites

Connecting to various webites

I had the same problem with my Vodafone usb modem. The issue is simply a default content control which is set to block sites that require a certain age to access.

Contact Vodafone and get them to remove the content control and you are laughing. Took me 5 minutes and the guy spoke English. Wonders never cease.
