How to re-setup the linksys wireless router


If you did not change the IP address of your router then you can configure one of your computer to use static IP address in the same subnet as the IP address of the router and connect to the router on one of the LAN port. Then you can open the web page of the configuration by using the IP address of the router (on the LAN side) such as 192.168.0.1 (according to the manual or specification you can find about that router on linksys web site). Then you can login and configure the settings. Sometimes they use Admin and blank password as default login in user credential. If you want to restore the factory default, then you just need to press in the reset button which is usually a tiny hole on the back of the router close to the power cord. You can stick a paper clip or something into it and hold it for like 30 seconds and everything will be restored.

Whenever you surf the Web, you leave yourself open to being snooped upon by web...



Whenever you surf the Web, you leave yourself open to being snooped upon by web sites. They can track your online travels, know what operating system and browser you're running, find out your machine name, peer into your clipboard, uncover the last sites you've visited, examine your history list, delve into your cache, examine your IP address and use that to learn basic information about you such as your geographic location, and more. To a great extent, your Internet life is an open book when you visit.
Don't believe me? Head to http://www.anonymizer.com/snoop/test_ip.shtml. This page, run by the Anonymizer.com web service, tells you what your IP address and machine name are. And that's just a start. Click on the links on the left side, such as "Exposed Clipboard" and "Geographical Location." You'll see just a small sampling of what web sites can learn about you.
Much of the reason why web sites can find out this information about you is due to the trusting nature of the Internet's infrastructure and is inherent in the open client/server relationship between your web browser and the servers on the sites you visit. But a lot of it also has to do with the ability to match up information from your PC to information in publicly available databases—for example, databases that have information about IP addresses.
The best way to make sure web sites can't gather personal information about you and your computer is to surf anonymously; use an anonymous proxy server to sit between you and the web sites you visit. When you use an anonymous proxy server, your browser doesn't contact a web site directly. Instead, it tells a proxy server which web site you want to visit. The proxy server then contacts the web site, and when you get the web site's page you don't get it directly from the site. Instead, it's delivered to you by the proxy server. In that way, your browser never directly contacts the web server whose site you want to view. The web site sees the IP address of the proxy server, not your PC's IP address. It can't read your cookies, see your history list, or examine your clipboard and cache, because your PC is never in direct contact with it. You're able to surf anonymously, without a trace.
There are two primary ways to use anonymous proxy servers. You can run client software on your PC, which does the work of contacting the server for you, or you can instead visit a web site, which then does the work of contacting the server.

I can't load some web pages when I connect wireless with the Sabrent NT-WRLRT Wireless broadband router


There could be several reasons for this. Make sure your DNS settings are correct, you can test this by using another computer..
replace <URL> with the address you are having problems with. i.e. google.com if you can't pul up google on your wireless machine, and replace <IP> with the resulting IP address

on your working computer:
1) go to start > run > type " cmd " in the box and hit enter
2) in the new window that opened, type ping <URL>
3) when the pings are successful, write down the IP address (you will see " pinging <URL> [xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] <--- This is IP address)

now go to your malfunctioning machine and repeat the process, if the IP addresses are different, you will need to change your DNS settings. If they are the same, and you still cannot pull up the site, the site itself may have problems, or you may have inadvertinly blocked the site within your browser from being displayed, this can usually be undone by checking the security features withing your browser's security settings

I have lost some of my web site addresses in the yahoo drop down


The drop box is an "autocomplete" list that is populated by your web browser (Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox). It has nothing to do with Yahoo.

The browser only keeps this information for so long before it gets "bumped off the end" to make room for new things you have typed into the box.

Also, if you delete your browsing history, this data will also be cleared out.

If you want to remember websites permanently, add them to your Favourites list by hitting CTRL+D.

I JUST PURCHASED A GATEWAY LAPTOP AND I AM TRY TO REGISTER IT. I USED THE WEB PAGE THAT WAS GIVEN, BUT THIS SITE CAME UP INSTEAD. PLEASE E-MAIL ME AT : bpendergrass3@juno.com THANK YOU, BECKY...


Becky,

If the Site that came up was a Microsoft Site (you can look at the address in the Browser address bar to see), then you need to proceed from there to complete your activation of windows.

Please post back, especially if I misunderstood your issue. You can post the address of the site you mention in a reply, or give more detail as about the site.

Good luck.

Hi my router wont connect to comp.need help making connection between router and computer


Here's How:
  1. Choose a convenient location to begin installing your router such as an open floor space or table. This does not need to be the permanent location of the device. Particularly for wireless routers, you may find it necessary to re-position the unit after installing it as the cables / signals may not reach all areas needed. At the beginning, its better to choose a location where it's easiest to work with the router and worry about final placement later.

  2. Plug in the router's electrical power source, then turn on the router by pushing the power button.

  3. (Optional) Connect your Internet modem to the router. Most network modems connect via an Ethernet cable but USB connections are becoming increasingly common. The cable plugs into the router jack named "WAN" or "uplink" or "Internet." After connecting the cable, be sure to power cycle (turn off and turn back on) the modem to ensure the router recognizes it.

  4. Connect one computer to the router. Even if the router is a wireless model, connect this first computer to the router via a network cable. Using a cable during router installation ensures the maximum reliability of the equipment. Once a wireless router installation is complete, the computer can be changed over to a wireless connection if desired.

  5. Open the router's administration tool. From the computer connected to the router, first open your Web browser. Then enter the router's address for network administration in the Web address field and hit return to reach the router's home page.

    Many routers are reached by either the Web address "http://192.168.1.1" or "http://192.168.0.1" Consult your router's documentation to determine the exact address for your model. Note that you do not need a working Internet connection for this step.

  6. Log in to the router. The router's home page will ask you for a username and password. Both are provided in the router's documentation. You should change the router's password for security reasons, but do this after the installation is complete to avoid unnecessary complications during the basic setup.

  7. If you want your router to connect to the Internet, you must enter Internet connection information into that section of the router's configuration (exact location varies). If using DSL Internet, you may need to enter the PPPoE username and password. Likewise, if you have been issued a static IP address by your provider (you would need to have requested it), the static IP fields (including network mask and gateway) given to you by the provider must also must be set in the router.

  8. If you were using a primary computer or an older network router to connect to the Internet, your provider may require you to update the MAC address of the router with the MAC address of the device you were using previously. Read How to Change a MAC Address for a detailed description of this process.

  9. If this is a wireless router, change the network name (often called SSID). While the router comes to you with a network name set at the factory, you will never want to use this name on your network. Read How to Change the Router SSID for detailed instructions.

  10. Verify the network connection is working between your one computer and the router. To do this, you must confirmed that the computer has received IP address information from the router. See How to Find IP Addresses for a description of this process.

  11. (If applicable) Verify your one computer can connect to the Internet properly. Open your Web browser and visit a few Internet sites such as http://compnetworking.about.com/.

  12. Connect additional computers to the router as needed. If connecting wirelessly, ensure the network name (SSID) of each is computer matches that of the router.

  13. Finally, configure additional network security features as desired to guard your systems against Internet attackers. These WiFi Home Network Security Tips offer a good checklist to follow.
Tips:
  1. When connecting devices with network cables, be sure each end of the cable connects tightly. Loose cables are one of the most common sources of network setup problems.
What You Need:
  • A network router (wireless or wired)
  • Network adapters installed on all devices to be connected to the router
  • A working Internet modem (optional)
  • A Web browser installed at least one computer in the network

Please let me know if you need any further help and I would be glad to assist.

Thank you for using Fixya and Good Luck
