How do i disconnect wifi from my modem/router?


You could get more specific answers if you posted what kind of router you have.

In general, you have three basic options: 1) Disable wifi entirely 2) Change wifi password and don't tell your son (be sure to disable guest access if your router has that) 3) Restrict access to specific devices and don't include your son's.

All three of these are accomplished using your router's configuration screens, so what you would do is connect to your router by pointing your web browser at its address, usually something like http://192.168.1.1. Then you have to log in using your router's administrative user id and password. Then find the appropriate screen to do one of the options I suggested, make the change, save the change, and usually reboot your router.

These things are not always straightforward, for example, to disable wifi entirely on my Netgear WNR3500L router you have to go to the Advanced wifi options page and uncheck the setting "Enable wireless router radio".

Note: While you are in there you probably ought to change the administrative password for your router because the defaults for most brands are well-publicized and your son could get in there and lock you out or re-enable his access.

Belkin N 150 locks out my Sirus satelite radio It worked fine until my son had his laptop tuned up How can I reset the router?


Most routers can be reset by simply holding the power or reset button for an extended period of time (5-30 seconds depending on model). Usually (a) light(s) will blink upon reset.
Hopefully this solves your problem. If not please try typing in 192.168.1.1 to access your routers settings and make sure you don't have your radio blocked by MAC address or something odd like that. Hope this helps and thank you.

Cannot finish connecting


Hi fozzy211 - Please don't rate this 'til were finished. You've got two things going on. You said it's telling you to check the cables and then you say it's saying the router isn't from Verizon. Is it both? Are the cables hooked up correctly to your knowledge? We can fool Verizon's system. Let me know if you actually have two problems. For now I would only hook up one pc via wired until it's working. I'll await your response. Thanks.

Wireless internet access


Mandy,
The password is a WPA Shared Key. The secret key will be shown in your routers security or advanced or network configuration page.......if you forgot the key then the best alternative will be to reset the router
you could simply create a new WPA-PSK and then setup each machine again that needs wireless access to your network.

Wireless router


I have a friend that works at 2 wire. I've bought a couple of their products. And I'm a computer geek. Unless I miss my guess it shouldn't matter what is plugged into it, be it laptop or desktop. It may be locked down to the MAC address on the NIC, but I doubt it. Anyway you'd just browse to it's embedded webpage and change the setting. The IP address is the same as the gateway address on the laptop plugged into it.

I think I bought that model for my dad but I can't remember the exact model number on it. Anyway the one I bought, and set up for my Dad, I had several different computers hooked up to it and never had a problem.
