Set security code

I cannot access the unit because using 192.168.1.4 (from ipconfig) I get IIS7.net even if I block this MS site - a total pain. How do I access the unit to set the security code?

The default IP address of the router is 192.168.1.1.
use this Ip address to access the router setup page.
Is there any computer connected to the router ?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router with the wireless computer.
you will need to connect the computer to the router with the Ethernet cable.
check the IP address of the computer.
open the router set up page of the router.
Here you can change the wireless settings of the router.
Now once you change the network anme and security on the router, you will need to connect to the wireless network on your wireless computers.

I have lost the security code and have a new laptop, how do i set it up to work


Hi!

If you don't remeber the wireless security code, maybe you still remeber the user and password to access the web management interface of the router.
Then you have to connect the laptop to the router by using a network cable. Open a browser window, type in the IP adress of your router and check the wireless setup section. There you can find / modify the wifi security code.

If you don't know the router's IP adress, then open on your computer a ms-dos prompt and type the command
ipconfig /all

it will display your current IP adress, subnet mask and GATEWAY. The gateway adress is the router's IP adress that must be typed into the browser.

If you don't remember the user and password for accessing the router's web interface, please refer to the router's user manual in order to reset it to factory default configuration, and then proceed as for the first installation of the router.

Hope it helped,

Bogdan

How do u get facebook on a blocked college computer i have tryed but will not un block


First, there is a simple way and it will rely upon how your school?s privacy settings are set up. If they set up the settings with net Explorer, then there?s a good chance that they won?t effect you if you use different web browser. You can use Mozilla Firefox, Opera, or another net browser and you could be able to access Myspace, Facebook, Hi5, and lots of other sites that were blocked when you used web explorer. This is the simplest way to unblock myspace, so try it first. When this doesn?t work, then you know your personal computer folks are good and they have blocked it regardless of which browser you use. There?s another way, though. Second, you can use what is called a proxy web server. This is basically a site that is set up to act like the face for your perusing. When you go to an internet site through a proxy web server you are essentially not using your school?s servers so you won?t be blocked from viewing a site the college has blocked. This is the best way to find a way around the block and use Myspace and other sites in school.

Hi

I am assuming that you are using a router/firewall for your home network which is hooked up to your modem or probably a combo of both. First of all if the problem persists you have to make sure that your firewall / router is not blocking this IP. In order to check this out ...

1. If it is just this site that you are not getting: download a program called ultrasurf. Install and see if when you provide the IP above and get the website to come in. I checked the website for you and it is online and working. So it is a local problem.

2. If it is all the sites you're not getting and you know how to configure your router, I would give it a go and reset it.

3. FInally: you have to add this site to the exceptions of your firewall so that he lets it throughOnce you have determined which one of the 2 problems is yours. Add the site to the exceptions of your firewall so that you don't stay using ultrasurf for browsing that site. By the way use google to look up the program i mentioned :)

I hope that I was of help to you :)

If your phone is blocked. You will have to take it to your nearest network provider outlet to get it unblocked.

If your sim card is blocked. You can go to your network suppliers website, where you can obtain the puck code to unblock the sim.

Internet Connectivity Problem


Try This,

Go to the command line and while connected to your modem type the following:

(Wait for each command to finish)

c:> ipconfig /release
c:> ipconfig /renew
c:> ipconfig /flushdns
c:> ipconfig /registerdns

Then attempt to browse one of the sites you were having trouble with.

If that does not fix the problem, then you will need to disable Norton Internet Security temporarily to see if that is causing your problems.

I'll check back to see how you made out.

Let me know how you made out.
