How do I torn off fire wall on my time warner cable ARRIS wifi router


See step 2; it's a matter of just clicking the firewall protection to OFF, from the "set up firewall protection" menu.

Set Up Firewall Protection
You can set up firewall filters and firewall alert notifications on your wireless home network. You
can also block Java Applets, Cookies, ActiveX controls, popup windows, Proxies, and website
access. See Protection Level for more information.
To set the firewall protection level:
1. From any screen, click the Firewall-Protection Level menu link or click the Firewall menu
button on the SBG6782-AC Main Menu and then select Protection Level.
Figure 17 - Firewall Protection Level Screen
2. Click the Firewall Protection Setting drop-down button to select the firewall protection level.
Possible values: Low, Medium, High, or Off
Note: Selecting Off will disable firewall protection on your home network. Your computer(s)
and other Ethernet-enabled devices on your network will be at risk for possible attacks from
viruses and hackers.
3. Select each Web filter that you want to set for the firewall and then click Apply.

7120 router reset


To reset the CISCO/Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

My LINKSYS ask 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:

http://192.168.1.1


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

I have tried every possible way to rest my netgear wgr614v5 router and the log in page will not come up. Is there any other way I can get my router to send out signals so it can be picked up bu other...


The best way to do it, though you may have tried it already, is to use a pen/pencil and push the reset button in for 5-10 seconds.

This will usually reset it to the factory default settings and reset any password protection on its wireless.

If not, it's a problem with the other computers detecting the signal, be it not in range or something else.

There is a green light on on top and after i push the wps button a red light blinks for a while and then stays on any ideas the laptop that has been used with this router is not getting a connection now...


Hello,

WPS means Wi-fi Protected Setup its a kind of wireless security for the router. There are two methods of activating it either by push button(Which you tried) and other is manual for that you can log into the Router setup page using "Http://192.168.2.1" in the Internet explorer and enter the pin code printed under the router. You should click on "Wi-fi protected setup" towards the left side of the page and leave the password field blank and click submit and enter the code and click on "Start" or Apply changes. The reason why it didnt work through the button is probably because your laptop might not be in range or switched off. It has a utility installed on your laptop which recognizes the connection and let it protect using WPS.

Hope it helps. Please feel free to contact us for further assistance or information.

My Dell 2350 router was working fine and was password protected. I must have messed up the settings because now it is no longer password protected (I can tell because the padlock next to it is now gone.)...


Hey!

Looks like someone pressed the reset button on your router which caused it to go back to it's factory settings that's why you lost the password.

Linksys WRT160 router doesn't work


Wi-Fi Protected Setup Button
If you have client devices, such as wireless adapters, that
support Wi-Fi Protected Setup, then you can
use Wi-Fi Protected Setup to automatically
configure wireless security for your wireless
network(s).

To use Wi-Fi Protected Setup, run the Setup
Wizard, or refer to the “Wireless > Basic Wireless
Settings” section of “Chapter 3: Advanced
Configuration".

Wi-Fi Protected Setup LED (Blue/Amber) It
lights up blue when wireless security is
enabled. The LED flashes blue for two
minutes during Wi-Fi Protected Setup.
The LED lights up amber if there is an error
during the Wi‑Fi Protected Setup process. Make
sure the client device supports Wi‑Fi Protected
Setup. Wait until the LED is off, and then try again.
The LED flashes amber when a Wi‑Fi Protected
Setup session is active, and a second session
begins. The Router supports one session at a
time. Wait until the LED is off before starting the
next Wi-Fi Protected Setup session.

How do i set a password to protect my wireless internet


Access the Router's page and go to Wireless configuration. You may assigned a WEP key that uses hexadecimal value (A-F, 0-9). So if someone attempts to access your Wireless network, they will prompt to enter a Wep key.
