Question about Belkin Computers & Internet

2 Answers

How can I ban everyone except me from going to the Belkin info page and getting the password? One of my kids has been banned from the computer but I can't seem to keep him from getting on the internet. My desktop is supposed to be the administrator of the wireless network but he can change things from his laptop. The desktop and 2 laptops have Windows Vista and my laptop has Windows XP. I can't see all of the computers on the network either. What am I doing wrong and how can I fix it?

Oh, this sounds like a very serious issue.I'm 15 myself but you can trust my knowledge since I've been learning about networks and training for CCNA for 2 years.From what I see, your asking if you can ban other computers via IP from using the router's GUI. That's not safe, let alone possible. I would recommend if you don't want your son using the GUI to change settings, put a password on it, set the access server setting to "HTTPS", and change the router's IP so he can't guess it as easily too. If you want me to do this for you I will, free. Just message me if you have any problems.

    Yeah, the computer acts like a terminal and it shouldn't matter what account you use to get on the router because the router can't tell the difference. If you don't want him to have access to everything and be able to change settings on the computer you should make an account just for him and set him as a limited account. Doing that will not allow him to change important computer settings. Most of all, you want to secure your router, because anyone on the network can get access at the moment.

Hi,

  1. Change the administrator password for access to the web interface on your router.
  2. Change the default gateway (192.168....) to another one.
  3. Enforce security with a share key you give only to those you want to allow access (several protocols are available)
  4. Enforce MAC filtering: You clone (enter ) the MAC addresses of all the machines you want to allow access. Any machine the MAC address of which is not registered (cloned) on the router will not be allowed.
  5. Enforce safety measures: Keep the router out of reach of the persons you do not allow, because they can reset and sneak in, especially if they seem to be more computer-savvy than you. (No offense meant here).
  6. Periodically, check the log of the wireless access to identify the unauthorized machines that may be piggybacking your network.

These are the basic steps: If you can secure the router with a password and enforce MAC filtering (Forbid all machines excpect those with a MAC address entered by you) you make things harder for this intruder.

Hope it helps.
You should specify the Model number of the router. It helps.

How to fix a banned console xbox 360 please help my xbox 360 console is banned from xbox live help


You can't. Device bans are not issued lightly, and occur when a particular Xbox console or Xbox on Windows device is used to violate the Code of Conduct in an egregious or repeated manner. Once a device ban occurs, NO account can connect to the Xbox Live service from the affected device. Given the severity of this action the enforcement team takes each device ban extremely seriously, and only takes action after a lengthy investigation.

Welcome to FixYa! Regarding about this issue, try first by changing your password. This is a common problem everyone encounters when using YM. If this will still not work , its up to Yahoo now. You might have been banned by Yahoo Messenger. You could simply report logging in through http://login.yahoo.com fixes it. These are usually temporary bans. I would leave it for a week and try again. Although it's often good to be persistant, too many times may prolong the ban.
You will have to wait a long time for Yahoo! to respond. Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa!
