Question about Routers

2 Answers

Some web pages won't open/display

I have recently 'upgraded' from the standard Orange boradband to the combined broadband + home line package. I changed on 24 December and, despite continiuing to use my BT Voyager 2000, experienced completely relaible email and internet service.

3 days ago I stopped being able to load/view lots of websites including Orange (my ISP's own website!!), BBC, Microsoft and many others. Yet there are loads of websites (obviously inlcuding this one) thay I can load/see. I have carries out all the advice from Orange Technical help and checked with BT Voyager Help that all is OK with the router - it is. A line test determined that, according to Orange, there is no fault on the line. The router is set to the correct DNS server.

I don't think the problem is with Explorer as I have the same problen when using the internet on a laptop via the same router.

I am connected to the Orange server as I can send and receive emails OK.

When pinging some websites I can't view (Orange & Microsoft) I get "Request timed out" four times and "Packets: sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss)".

I am due to have the Livebox installed next week: will this solve the problem?

    Can't connect to some web pages like MySpace and Facebook. Gets to their home page, but no further. Same goes for Yahoo. When I try to access my e-mail, won't let me connect past home page. Doesn't happen with all websites. Netgear tec support is USELESS!

Dear Friend,

Simply change the MTU value under WAN configuration. It will work fine. Change MTR value to 1452 or 1500. Check it will work.

The few quick things that I would recommend checking would be checking to see if your router has a firewall of some sort activated. I would also recommend instead of just pinging the site, try opening the command prompt and telnetting to the site on port 80:

telnet www.microsoft.com 80

Due to alot of sites blocking the ping, the telnet is a much more reliable method of checking site connectivity. The other option I would check is to connect directly from your computer to the modem, and enter the following line from the command prompt:

tracert www.microsoft.com

This will bring up a long list of each place that your computer hits on the way. If you do this with the router in place, the first ip you should see would be your router, and the next line after that would be the next router, and so on. This would help you find out if it is your router, or something beyond it.
Try these steps and let us know the results.

How to make a secure connection.So far i have an open connection. My router is Belkin_G_Plus Mimo


Open the router page 192.168.1.1 >> type this in the internet explorer address bar.
1. the Home Page is displayed. Click Wireless from the left menu
8. Changing the Wireless Security Settings
Your Router is equipped with the latest security standard called Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2). It also supports the legacy security standard called Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP). By default, wireless security is disabled. To enable security, you will need to determine which standard you want to use.
To access the security settings, click Security.
The Router features WPA2, which is the second generation of the WPA-based 802.11i standard. It offers a higher level of wireless security by combining advanced network authentication and stronger Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption methods.
2. You can configure wireless security/encrytion settings here. Select WPA-PSK (no server) from Security Mode drop-down menu. The new page will display on next screen
3.Setting WPA Security
Note: To use WPA security, your wireless network cards must be equipped with software that supports WPA. At the time this User Manual was published, a security patch from Microsoft is available for free download. This patch works only with Windows XP.
Your Router supports WPA-PSK (no server). WPA-PSK uses what is known as a pre-shared key as the security key. A pre-shared key is basically a password that is between eight and 39 characters long. It can be a combination of letters, numbers, or characters. Each client uses the same key to access the network. Typically this is the mode that will be used in a home environment.
Setting WPA-PSK
1. From the Security Mode drop-down menu, select WPA-PSK (no server).
2. For Encryption Technique, select TKIP or AES. This setting will have to be identical on the clients that you set up.
3. Enter your pre-shared key. This can be from eight to 39 characters and can be letters, numbers, or symbols. This same key must be used on all of the clients that you set up.
