You can track their mac address, but will not be able to detect where they are accessing it from. The best way to defend against unwanted guests is to secure the connection with a passphrase. You will need to log into your router, go into wireless settings, security, and choose between wpa and wep encryption. I suggest wpa personal, then choose a pass phrase that only you will remember. In order to connect to your wireless router, the pass phrase will have to be entered.

If you do not have the manual for your router, let me know and I will give you further instructions on how to log in.

D-Link router switches off internet connection when tv/DVD remote is used


Hi, Your question is not so clear. For giving the proper solution I need to know something. As per my knowledge a fiber optic cable doesn't connect a router directly without a Media Converter. Secondly please tell me the model number and the brand name of your television. Third do you configure your internet connection on your television through IP address??

I have a netgear MR814 and i am wondering if you can tell me how to connect it with my home system and my Mac OSX laptop?


For you to be able to connect to your router wirelessly, the first thing that you should know is the wireless settings on your router. You should know the ssid and if wireless security is enabled. To access the router setup wizard go to http://routerlogin.com admin is the username and password is the password. Click the wireless settings tab and there you will see the wireless settings. Once you know those settings you can check the available network that your laptop is seeing and then connect to your network.

I can't access my wireless internet, asking for a pass phrase


the D Link router is what is causing the issue - Cut your losses and get a linksys ( netgears are ok so maybe one of those ) but avoid D Link and Belkin equipment as far as wireless or networking goes.

An apple airport extreme ( although a bit more expensive ) are very good.

NO laptop has WIRELESS MODEM or ROUTER.

But yeah, there is always a WIRELESS LAN card in each laptop so that you can get connected to any Wireless Access Point like Routers,Bridges or Switches.

Your OS wizard will help you to configure all wireless settings.

Rate the solution if it was helpful to you...

Connecting to wireless router


I wouldent to that , not that way! since they track all activity that passes the router they track your laptop aswell.
If i where you i would have bought me a 3G broadband dongel for my laptop. No one sees you, no one tracks you, and you can use it wherever you are and you are anonymus

Using a company router for private surfing is always risky, IF you by mistake surf to an infekted site, your company will all over you.


Good luck to you

Driver


Hi foreylexy,

You actually don't need to install a driver for a router. The discs that the manufacture provide are actually just run a program to guide you through the initial setup. I'm using a router right now and I've never had to install a driver. If however, you are talk about the wireless adapters for use with the WRT54G access point router - then that's a different mater.

To access you router just plug an Ethernet cable into it and your PC. Then open a browser and type 192.168.1.1. This is the default IP address, unless you've changed it. The default login and password are both admin. You should now be able to make any changes you need.

Regards,

Spare head 2.

How do i unblock stuff on my WRT54G?


i doubt it is blocked, but you will need to enter the ip address and dns addreses manually as the automatic ip address never works. Use the psp ip address as the next one up from your pc and use the dns and gateway addresses as the same address of your router.
