The wireless light will blink when being used,
the gateways menu has a function to show how many are connected.
and as its not throwing a signal more than 50 ft its the guy next door.

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.

I have a hp pavilion 515n desktop computer and was wondering how to get the password for the wifi.


Hi Ettajean,

The wireless password can be located either on the wireless router itself (if it's being provided to you by your ISP), or you'll need to log into your router to view/change your wireless password.

If you've connected to the wireless router before and simply need to recall the password, you can view it inside of Windows:

If you can post the model number of your router, I can provide you with some additional direction.

Hope this helps!

I have several wireless electronics like a wii, xbox, ipod touches and blue rays i was wondering what wireless router do i need to run most of these thing without slowing down my connection all the time


The connectivity speed of the router depends on the range of the device u are using.
Go for a router which supports more wireless range.
The internet speed depends on your internet connection if all the devices are in range.

Interent-Wireless


You can get wireless internet as long as you connect to a wireless router/Access point. If you have Internet, you would need to get a wireless router in order to use your internet wirelessly.

Wireless router setup


is the problem that "nothing coming from the modem to the router"
if the router has more than one Lan port try the cable from the modem to the router, in the first lan port or the last port.

if its a wireless problem,ensure wireless is enabled on the laptop and the router,if you set up a security key ensure that it is put into the laptop wireless setting

sometimes you need to turn on the modem first then turn the router on after a little while to sort the ip address out before trying to connect the laptop, in the first instance.

hope this is of some help but more info would be good

good luck

Wireless g wrt54g router


First of all, are you connecting with a PC or a Notebook?

If you have the Linksys router, you should replace the MS utility with the Linksys utility it figures your linksys wireless lan card
There are programs you can use to keep track of your router and connections...One such program is called Port Mapper...

Does your problem happen everday...or every 3 weeks...are you doing anything in particular when you are getting the inability to use the connection?
There is a new Vista patch out there I recommend downloading.
