Change the WEp/WPA security key and don't let eh neighbor have it. That will kick him out of the router. You could also go into the router table and look at the MAC address associated with his IP and block that IP address and that will kick him out as well. If you block his IP and your router is set for DHCP he can log out and log back in and get a new IP address. Blocking by MAC address and using WEP/WPA security key is the best way to block unauthorized access to your router. The WEP/WPA key will be located on the page that router Wireless Security settings are on when you access your router.

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..

DNS server not responding on WRT54GL Linksys router


You are looking for DHCP server. It provides the IPs addresses for devices to connect. DNS resolves the IP into a name. Not really required unless you are setting up a virtual server, or the special setup.

I connected my modem to my router and then plugged my computers to the router, but only one of them has access to internet.


Hi,

with default settings on the Router, only one computer will be having access to the internet.
To allow multiple computers to connect to the internet through a single modem, You have to configure NAT ( Network Address Translation) on the router.

NAT basically hides your internal IPS of the computers and goes outside with the IP which you gets from the service provider through Modem.
If you dont enable NAT on the router then you have only one IP for all your computers to go out and only one of them can go to internet with that IP.

Best Regards

Hello! My laptop is not able to connect to my Linksys router.


Make sure that your wireless is not secure or you are entering the right password. Also check to see what channel that your wireless is set on and compare that to your neighbors around you. If you and your neighbor have the same channel number set that is your problem. Your neighbor is over powering your own router.

Windows vista laptop lost connection to the internet


Start off simple. Try a different port on the router. If that doesn't work, try a new cable. If that doesn't work, go to the Device Manager in Windows. (Right-click My Computer, select Manage, go to Device Manager). Does the card look okay? Has it been disabled or need a driver update? If we're still looking at issues then I would take a look at your router security. How many DHCP licences do you allowed to be assigned? Also do you have security in place (WEP/WPA, Mac Filtering, SSID Broadcast)? If you are light on security and only have a few assignable DHCP licences, you may have neighbors leeching your internet access.

To clarify: DHCP assigns a network IP address to each device on its network. Most Linkys routers have a default of 10, you may have reduced this yourself. If you have, you've limited the # of devices allowed on the network. So if you have 3 DHCP licenses available, and a couple neighbors are leeching, your Dell may not get assigned an ip.

If you still need further help, let me know.

Would a neighbors linksys router interfere with my belkin connection?


do check the signal strength of the wireless connection..you can improve signal by removing any big objects between the compu and the router/access point and/or re positioning the router.also intervening walls will affect signal..the fact that you are getting a linksys signal impilies that your home network signal is weak..hope it helps!

Unable to log on to network with Apple Laptop


The type of computer doesn't matter, as the protocols are the same. Check your router's dhcp settings, as you may have it set to allow too few IPs to be distributed.
