You can change your ip adress, but that will not stop the criminals. most likely you get your ip dynamicly. The system will tell your computer what the ip is. best bet, do not mess with the ip, will save you the pain in the future.

my advice, get better security. Get a firewall, there are free ones on the internet. Don't trust the microsoft firewall, not that good.

If you have broadband, get a router. There are nice routers with some good software firewalls installed, but you don't need to spend the money for those. Any good basic router will provide a basic firewall protection.

Get a router, and install a firewall on your computer.

stay away from norton, I don't like there products, slow down your system too much.

zone alarm is good.

If you computer got hacked, most likely you caused it. You could have a trojan on your computer. Make sure you get a virus scanner. I use AVG.

3. Never neglect warnings and alerts
On Gmail , if a person with a different IP address logges in to your acount , then it shows a warning message on the empty space on the top . If any such warning message is shown , then instead of neglecting it , prform the following steps :

Tips to Find Unauthorized Activity on Your Email Account


Do you suspect that your email account is under attack? Do you want to maintain total security of your email account and make it 100% hack proof? Well, Some times our email account might have got hacked and we may not be aware of that. We may believe that our email account is safe, but in reality our private and confidential information may be falling into the hands of a third person.
Here are some signs of unauthorized activity on an email account.
1. Your new emails are marked as Read even if you’ve not read them.
2. Your emails are moved to Trash or even permanently deleted without your notice.
3. Your emails are being forwarded to a third party email address (check your settings->forwarding).
4. Your secondary email address is changed.
If you come across any of the above activities on your email account, then it is a clear indication that your email account is hacked.
Additional Security Features in Gmailto ensure the Safety of your Account
Gmail provides an additional security feature to protect your email account through the means of IP address logging. That is, Gmail records your IP addressevery time you login to your Gmail account. So, if a third party getsaccess to your account then even his/her IP is also recorded. To see alist of recordedIP address, scroll down to the bottom of your Gmail account and you’ll see something like this.

You can see from the above figure that Gmail shows the IP address of last login (last account activity). You can click on Details to see the IP address of your last 5 activities. If you find that the IP listed in the logs doesn’t belong to you, then you can suspect unauthorized activity.
Steps to be carried out to stop unauthorized activity on your email account
If you feel/suspect that your account is hacked then you must immediately take the actions mentioned below
1. Change your Password
2. Change your security question.
2. Remove any third party email address (if any) to which your account is set to forward emails.

SECURITY ALERT! Message resent! Please verify your account by carefully following the instructions in the email. Message Code: CA2


Somebody is trying to hack your FB account. Here's how you fix it: Try Changing your email address linked to your Facebook account. Go to Facebook, then to account, then to account settings change email to a new email address. Facebook will then send you a confirmation email to your new email address inbox, follow link to confirm. Then go back to Facebook and go back to account, account settings and change the email to the new email address ...don't forget to remove the old (hacked) email address at this point.
Hope it this works and help you.

My Archos 605 80gb cannot find my netgear wireless thingy!!!!


I had the same prob with a LinkSys. Puzzling for sure. Finally, I went to a Crystal restaurant (hot spot) and it connected. So, I knew it wuz my router. Finally stumbled on to the prob. I had to key in the 605 MAC address in the router table. Now, it works beautifully. You can find your MAC address under "Settings." Hope this helps!

CHANGIN PASSCODE BELKIN G WIRELESS ROUTER


if you hit the reset button on your router you can restore it to factory defaults. then, you can log into the default IP address of your router and change the password to what you want. This is the only way to change it- being able to change your password without having the old one would be a GLARING security hole. If you update your question with the model # of your belkin I can find the manual online. It will list the default IP address, username and password that you will need to access it after the reset.
