Possible problem with secure http connection of messenger


Yahoo Messenger? It is pretty well protected unless someone hacked your user name or password--someone who knows you?

Consider getting a new user name and password--good idea to change that password every once in a while.

You could contact Yahoo but they often provide little help.

If you are using a router and wireless for the unit--make sure its protected with a security setup and change that password also--so no one can get in and see what you are doing.

Either someone hacked the router or your Messenger name and password.

I have installed my belkin router but i forgot to type in a password is this necessary,if so how do i do that


Yes, your router should be password protected.

Belkin routers ship without a password, so after entering http://192.168.2.1 into your browser, click "login" in the upper right-hand corner, then just click on "submit" (leave the password box blank).

Once in the router, click on "system settings" in the left-hand margin, under "administrative password" leave the box next to "type in current password" _blank_. Then enter your new password in the next box and repeat it in the next box to confirm. Don't forget to click on "apply changes" then log out.

I need to secure my home wirless network


1) Secure your wireless router or access point administration interface
Almost all routers and access points have an administrator password that's needed to log into the device and modify any configuration settings. Most devices use a weak default password like "password" or the manufacturer's name, and some don't have a default password at all. As soon as you set up a new WLAN router or access point, your first step should be to change the default password to something else. You may not use this password very often, so be sure to write it down in a safe place so you can refer to it if needed. Without it, the only way to access the router or access point may be to reset it to factory default settings which will wipe away any configuration changes you've made.

2) Don't broadcast your SSID
Most WLAN access points and routers automatically (and continually) broadcast the network's name, or SSID (Service Set IDentifier). This makes setting up wireless clients extremely convenient since you can locate a WLAN without having to know what it's called, but it will also make your WLAN visible to any wireless systems within range of it. Turning off SSID broadcast for your network makes it invisible to your neighbors and passers-by (though it will still be detectible by WLAN "sniffers").

3)Enable WPA encryption instead of WEP
802.11's WEP (Wired Equivalency Privacy) encryption has well-known weaknesses that make it relatively easy for a determined user with the right equipment to crack the encryption and access the wireless network. A better way to protect your WLAN is with WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access). WPA provides much better protection and is also easier to use, since your password characters aren't limited to 0-9 and A-F as they are with WEP. WPA support is built into Windows XP (with the latest Service Pack) and virtually all modern wireless hardware and operating systems. A more recent version, WPA2, is found in newer hardware and provides even stronger encryption, but you'll probably need to download an XP patch in order to use it.

4) Reduce your WL-AN transmitter power
You won't find this feature on all wireless routers and access points, but some allow you lower the power of your WL-AN transmitter and thus reduce the range of the signal. Although it's usually impossible to fine-tune a signal so precisely that it won't leak outside your home or business, with some trial-and-error you can often limit how far outside your premises the signal reaches, minimizing the opportunity for outsiders to access your WL-AN.

5) Disable remote administration

Most WL AN routers have the ability to be remotely administered via the Internet. Ideally, you should use this feature only if it lets you define a specific IP address or limited range of addresses that will be able to access the router. Otherwise, almost anyone anywhere could potentially find and access your router. As a rule, unless you absolutely need this capability, it's best to keep remote administration turned off

Thanks
Have great day

How can i reset my router, which is password protected. I can't remember password info.


In case you reset the router it comes to the default settings. This means that it come to the default password too. Clarify me the brand / model to post you back the factory password.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Trying to password protect my wireless internet with Netgear router and it is now telling me I have limited access when I try to connect to the internet with my laptop


Hi,
If you have password protected your router,and after the same its giving you a limited access, you need to delete the existing wireless connection and create a new one. When you are configuring the new connection it would ask you the password that you have given , the box where you need to put it in is called the Network key box. You can call netgear support and they can walk you through it aswelll.


Thanks

We have purchased a new notebook{higrade brand vista OS} to replace a packard bell using XP the XP laptop connected no problem the newone finds the belkin router but won't connect to the internet are...


Do you have a wireless security protocol enabled, and if so, what? Install a wired connection to the router (use an ehternet cable to connect your laptop's RJ-45--looks like a wide phone plug--into one of the Belkin router's network jacks). Go to the router's management page using your web browser (probably http://192.168.2.1). If you have not previously set the password in your router, simply leave the password field blank and CLICK "Submit". If you have previously password protected your Belkin router, use the known password. If you have forgotten your password... you'll need to reset your router.
 
Reest Router: there is usually a small hole into whiuch a pin or paper clip can be inserted for this purpose or a small button to press. Most Belkins--IIRC--have the button. 

Once you are on the Belkin router's management page, look for the wireless link and set your security protocol to match what your wireless card is capable of, set the password, save and exit. Use the sasme password in configuring wireless networking in Windows.
