You can make a new internet conection, for windows you go to control panel then network connections then go to "create a new connection". then a wizard appliacation will run. With this application go "next" twice then select "set up my connection manually" checkbox . then you need to put in the info of the connection (including a password), and make sure that the checkbox that says "make this my default connection" is checked off. This new connection will be the one you use when you hook up to the internet. If this doesn't work then idno. But for macs idno.

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..

Westell 0738 Is my next door neighbors wireless point I can't acess her network it asks for a password..can I get around it? And is there a universal password?? She's old and I bet she don't...


There are no universal password/encryption setting.
Your next door neighbour has protected her wireless network and Internet access from unauthorized access. If she wishes to give you access to her wireless and Internet she would give you the password. That is her choice.

Hi, I am trying to get my new Acer up and running. It will not connect to the internet. It is asking me to type in the network security key. I have no idea what it is asking for. Please help.


Its the password for your network. If your trying to use someone elses network you need to ask them. If it yours then you should know your security password for your network.

I installed a new Zonet 1605 wireless adapter so i could pick up the wireless internet from my niegbor it does not work why?


You are not able to pick up your neighbor's network can be due to various reasons.
1) Check if the adapter has been installed properly. Check the device status in the device manager. It should say "This device is working properly"
2) The distance might be too much for you to receive the wireless signals.
3) Might be having any other wireless devices like a cordless phone near your computer which may cause interference.
4) Your neighbor's wireless router might be transmitting signals in 802.11a or 802.11n standards which is not compatible with Zonet 1605 adapter.
5) Your neighbor would have password protected his wireless network to avoid illegal use of his internet. These days there is more importance given for wireless security.

Thanks and regards,

Make my Linksys router secure


Go to Internet Explorer (or Firefox, Chrome, whatever you have), and type this in the address bar: 192.168.1.1
A window will pop up asking for login to the router. Assuming you haven't made any changes to it prior to asking here, login with "admin" as the username, and "admin" as the password.
You should now see what looks like a menu screen like this:
d8d283f.jpg

You're going to look for the "Wireless" tab and click there. The first screen you'll see is where you can change the name of your wireless network. It is suggested that you change it to something that you'll know and your neighbors won't think its you. For example, I had a router with a wireless network (SSID) called "LAKEWOOD SHERIFF", only me and my sisters knew what this was but none of my neighbors would want to log on because they think they would be watched by the police.
Save settings.
Now back up to the menu bar, under the "Wireless" tab, you see that "Basic Wireless Settings" is lit and the other choices are dimmed out. Click on "Wireless Security", here is where you would change the password to your wireless internet.
Most technicians would probably tell you to use WEP security mode because of the incompatibility with older devices, but chances are, you have a newer computer, so I'm going to suggest using WPA Personal. This, by the way, is easier to use than WEP, because WEP requires an exact amount of characters for a password, depending on the algorithm you use. With WPA Personal, you can use any password that you can remember and that will be used as your wireless access password. Your password can be anything from "sky" to "iforgothowtowashmyclothes", can contain uppercase and lowercase, and can contain numbers. "AZ41sx52dc" is one that uses all of the above.
Please note that if you use uppercase and lowercase, you must enter it exactly as you put it on the router or the password will be incorrect.
For example, if you enter "PeterPiper" as your WPA Personal password, you must enter it as "PeterPiper". If you enter it as "Peterpiper", "peterpiper", "pETERpIPER", etc etc, the router will not allow you access.
Remember to save settings as you go along! :)
Hope this helps,
-CP

Is there anyway to get internet cinnection without having a cd driver for internet?


Yes, try this, Using the network cable that came with your wireless router, you should temporarily connect your computer to one of the open network ports on your wireless router (any port that isn't labeled Internet, WAN, or WLAN). If you need to, turn your computer on. It should automatically connect to your router. Next, open Internet Explorer and type in the address to configure your router. You might be prompted for a password. The address and password you use will vary depending on what type of router you have, so refer to the instructions included with your router. As a quick reference, this table shows the default addresses, usernames, and passwords for some common router manufacture Router Address User Password 3Com http://192.168.1.1 admin admin D-Link http://192.168.0.1 admin Linksys http://192.168.1.1 admin admin Microsoft http://192.168.2.1 admin admin Netgear http://192.168.0.1 admin password
Internet Explorer will show your router's configuration page. Most of the default settings should be fine, but you should configure three things: 1. Your wireless network name, known as the SSID. This name identifies your network. You should choose something unique that none of your neighbors will be using. 2. Wireless encryption (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), which help protect your wireless network. For most routers, you will provide a passphrase that your router uses to generate several keys. Make sure your passphrase is unique and long (you don't need to memorize it). 3. Your administrative password, which controls your wireless network. Just like any other password, it should not be a word that you can find in the dictionary, and it should be a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. Be sure you can remember this password, because you'll need it if you ever have to change your router's settings. The exact steps you follow to configure these settings will vary depending on the type of router you have. After each configuration setting, be sure to click Save Settings, Apply, or OK to save your changes. Now, you should disconnect the network cable from your computer.

My thinkpad will not connect to our wireless router. it shows our neighbors routers. I am on my husband's laptop which is right next to my laptop. His laptop is showing full signal. We have a Linksys...


Check you internet settings. Set up a home network from your computer and use all the recommended and default and automatic settings. Then the program will renew the IP address on YOUR pc to match the routers.

To access your router. Go to your pc's web address and type 192.168.1.1
If it by chance asks for username and password, type "admin" for both. Now you can set up your router options from your pc

Wireless Connection


The WPA code is the password to access the router's network, so it can use your internet connection. As long as the Xbox has both the SSID and the WPA password, it can access the internet through the router.

The SSID ( Chris_PC_Network ) is mostly irrelevant to the network connection, and is purely aesthetical. Its only use is to help users distinguish between different networks (so you don't use a neighbor's network or vice versa).

Computer disconnects from Internet when my neighbor is using his computer


the Lock means that he has a secure network or he has the WAP enabled.. Can the two networks interfere? Yes. The two networks will "fight" over which one will your computer use to connect.. and sometimes you will connect to his network and therefore get no internet or limited connectivity.. You can make sure that your computer only connects to your network by permanently removing his SSID from your settings.
