    What's the router's make and model?. The only thing you could find is the MAC Address and Computer Name. Is it password protected?

There is no way of really telling who is trying to access your router but if you have security on yours (password) no one will be able to get in.your router will still be visible to them when searching for a connection but that is all unless they have your password of course

How to convert to access point


I assume you're talking about using a wireless router as an access point. First, you need to run a wire from on of the LAN ports the new wireless router to one of the LAN ports of the new wireless router. (The back of your router has one Internet/WAN port (often yellow or blue) and several LAN ports.) The simplest way is to use a Cat5 or Cat6 patch cable, which you can buy in any length from 1 to 300 feet. (It's possible you'll need a crossover cable, but I haven't needed one of those in years.) If you're thinking of putting them in different parts of the house, and you can't run a cable between them, then you probably can't do this. (There are devices that are capable of creating a wireless bridge, but you'd need both devices to share that capability, and it's not typical on home devices.) You could try getting a pair of devices that use your house's electrical wiring (like these http://us.dlink.com/product-category/home-solutions/connect/powerline/), but that's not always successful (you need both outlets on the same circuit, for one thing).

Second, you need to change the configuration on the old router/new access point. That box is doing a lot of things that you don't need it to do any more, but I don't bother disabling them, except for one thing: DHCP. Wireless routers are generally configured to hand out IP (network) addresses to other devices on the network (your computers, DVRs, game consoles, etc.). If you have two devices (your new wireless router and the access point you're creating) handing out network addresses, it can get messy. So you need to log into the old router and disable DHCP (which some manufacturers call "assign network addressing" or "IP address distribution" or something like that).

One other step you may need to take is to change the IP address of the new access point. Still logged into the router, find where the LAN (local) IP address is set, and change it if you can. There are 2 reasons this can be important.
1) If your access point and your new wireless router both have the same IP address, you'll get lots of problems.
2) If your access point and your new wireless router are not on the same subnet, you'll only be able to login to the access point through a wired connection (and even then you may have to change your computer's IP address to match the access point's subnet.)
You can change the access point's address to anything you want, but you need to make sure of 2 things:
1) No other device has that IP address.The easiest way to ensure this is to make the last number in the address 253. That address almost never gets used.
2) It's on the same subnet as your new wireless router. I won't get into subnetting; what you need to know for your home network is that devices on the network can only communicate with other devices whose address starts the same way. For all the home routers I've seen, it's either 192.168.0 or 192.168.1. So you need to log into your new router and see if it has the address 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 (or you could open a command window on your computer and give it an "ipconfig" command, which would show you your computer's IP address, which will have the same 3 numbers). Then login to the access point and give it the IP address 192.168.0.253 or 192.168.1.253.

In a nutshell, make sure the first 3 numbers match all the other devices on the network, and that the last number does not match any device on the network.

Good luck!

How can I keep someone from accessing the internet through my router


A couple of ways you could keep someone from accessing the Internet through your router. 1) You could use a network encryption key (WPA2 is best).2) Also you could enable MAC address filtering, which only allows devices that have whitelisted MAC addresses to have access to the Internet through your network

Setup 64bit pass phrase on Belkin router. All wireless devices say,


Do your other devices support 64bit wep, and are you selecting that as your encryption type on each device. For example I know on my cellphone I have to specify the type of encryption that is used. You might also log into the router, just to double check the encryption type and the pass phrase (even if you are spelling it right).

Some one keep changing my pass word i like this problem to stop Ty


Seems someone knows the IP address of your router, logs in and resets it and changes your password. Log into your router and change the IP address range like for instance if it's currently 192.168.0.100 change it to 192.168.88.100 or change the range to 195.168.1.100 and then they won't be able to log in any more but make sure you change the router's password as well because they may know it as well. Once this is done the only way to change your setup will be if someone had physical access to your router and held the reset button.

How do I determine actual threats to my network while reviewing my wireless/network Router's Event Log?


Logs are meant to see the activities handled by your router. However, to determine any threat you can check for the IP address of the devices you have connected to your router. You can determine if any one else is trying to access your router by their ip address only.
Note down the IP address for all the devices that you have connected to your router. Than match the your devices IP addresses with IP addresses you found in the logs.
Matching IP address: Means your devices accessing the router. Unmatched IP Address: Someone else's devices trying to access your router.
You can always add security by using WEP/WPA2 key security. For further security you can encrypt the keys.

I have the same problem too


Try this procedure:

To Spoof a MAC Address
  1. Connect the computer that your ISP's installers used to establish Internet connection to the router. If you are unsure which computer was used, call your ISP, and ask what MAC address was registered. Then, using the instructions in the box below find the computer whose MAC address matches their records.
  2. Disconnect other computers from the router.
  3. (If you do not want to disconnect other computers, you need to know the adapter's MAC address, as described in the box below. Then, in step 6, type Use This MAC Address, entering the adapter's address.)
  4. In an Internet browser type the address 192.168.0.1.
  5. Type admin for the username, password for the password, and click OK.
  6. Go to the Basic Settings > Router Mac Address.
  7. Select Use Computer MAC Address.
  8. Click Apply. This automatically gives the router the computer's MAC address.
  9. Click Test to make sure you are connected. If you are not connected, contact your ISP.

Configuration of Belkin Wireless Router F5D6231


Whoops, found it. http://cache-www.belkin.com/support/dl/f5d6231-4_manual.pdf

If I were setting this up for myself or a customer, I'd keep the Airtel IP's and let it be the DHCP server. To do this, you pick a fixed IP address for the Belkin, something like 192.168.1.251. Log into the Belkin and change the LAN IP address to that and turn off DHCP. Those instructions start on pdf page 34.

Now, plug one of the 4 ports into the Airtel, and from a computer connected to the network type in 192.168.1.251 in Internet Explorer. It should get you to the Belkin where you finish setting it up for wireless security and password from page 38.

You won't use the WAN port.
