Nope..max on those self powered routers, even through wire, is around 120 ft...requirement of FCC in US for range...you'll need to use a wired approach, with an amplified repeater along the way...500 feet is just too far away

How can I remove my neighbor from my network


Easiest thing to do, Change the password to your router. Once this is done, it will prevent your neighbor from any further access to your router and of course prevent internet access. Most all routers are simply a local web address for access. Example: 192.168.1.1 typed inside a browser address pane will take you inside the router. Check your router for setup procedures.

Have a great night..

How to set up wbr-3406 tx router with dsl modem


Take an Ethernet cable, and connect the Ethernet port on the DSL modem to the WAN port on the router.
Take another Ethernet cable, and connect one of the LAN ports on the router to the network-port on your computer.
Now, you should be able to web-surf.
Access the web-server inside the router, and run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard", to configure your wireless networking.

Remove the neighbor's network from the preferred network list.
add your own network in the list. If your router is old router then upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
You have connected your laptop to the router, to secure the wireless network. When you connect the laptop to the router, make sure that the wireless network connection will be disabled.
Once you change the wireless settings, enable the wireless connection and connect to your network.

From one of the "wired" computers, connect to the router's built-in web-server, and run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", in order to configure your wireless network, choosing an 'SSID' and a "password" for your network.

Contant need top reboot the program


Do a wireless scan on your computer and out how many wireless access is in your neighborhood. More than likely that your router is sharing the same wireless channel number as your neighbor's. Go to your router and cheange to opposite of what your neighbor is on.

My belkin router wont let my neighbor's PC get internet!


Is there any other computer online ?
If not then check the settings of the router .
If you have another computer online ( wired or wireless ) which is able to go online using the same router then check the IP address on the computer which is working.
is it a wireless computer ?
If it is a wireless computer then check whether it is connected to the wireless network or not.
Check the wireless settings of the router also

D-link won't go wireless


Ok.. first of all lets double check that all your ports are forwarded correctly. I know of this boss website to walk you through step-by-step on forwarding your routers ports for Programs, networks, etc.
www.portforward.com

when the page loads up scroll down and you'll see a list of Router manufacturer's.

Scroll over the list (alphabetical order) until you find your manufacturer. Now locate your Model # .
when you click on the model it will load a new page. Scroll down and find the name of the device, program, OS, etc you are looking for. EXAMPLE: World of Warcraft
if you select WOW it will show you what ports to forward so that your routers FIrewall won't stop the traffic.

Also check and see if you have your Wep, wpa encrypton activated. is your wireless network encrypted. if it is your wireless scanner might me set to ignore private SSID.
check the box to view hidden ssid.

Yes you can. My neighbor is piggy backing off my gateway 2wire router from att. He doesn't have any lag except for late at night. Other than that it rocks. Just set up your security.

If your router is a BEFSR41 it does not have a wireless option on it. It is just a wired cable/dsl router.
