Hi Wilson,
You can block Internet access by specifying MAC addresses of PCs you want blocked. The MAC address is the physical address of the network card in the PC.
Please page 54 for instructions on setting up this policy.

How do I set my Toshiba to wireless network? I have used a cable modem since purchase?


1. Make sure your Wireless LAN switch is turned on. For most Toshiba notebooks, this switch is located on the front left side of the notebook. Consult your user manual for more information about where the switch is on your particular system.
2. Check to make sure that the Wireless Device is properly enabled and configured.
3. Make sure that you have been given access to the wireless network. Check with your system administrator or host provider.
4. Make sure that there are no walls or other obstructions blocking the radio signal from reaching your notebook. Try moving closer to the Access Point.

Get no signal from router


There are many network-related settings that need to be configured on the system for connecting to a wireless network. If even one of these settings have not been configured properly, issues will come up. All users facing problems with the use of wireless networks are advised to check network-related settings such as access points, IP address in use and reconfigure them if they are not properly set. Users are also suggested to check the firewall settings to make sure that the firewall is not blocking network connections.

Is there a limit to the number of login attempts that can be made or can hackers make continuous attempts until they get in?


There is no limit to the number of login attempts, as far as I know, but there are ways to block hackers outside of your network...

You can use MAC Filters (Media Access Control) to allow LAN (Local Area Network) computers by their MAC addresses access to the Network (p. 44 in the user manual).

You can also use the built-in Firewall Settings for protection from the outside world (p. 45 in the user manual).

There is also an Access Control Wizard (p. 40 in the user manual).

How to secure my internet connection via smc router


If you plan to have a wireless network, you should set it up so that only people you choose can access it. Here are a few options for wireless network security.

Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
WEP is a widely used network security method. When you enable WEP, you set up a network security key. This key encrypts the information that one computer sends to another computer across your network. The receiving computer needs the key to decode the information so that it's difficult for someone on another computer to get onto your network and access files without your permission.

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA)
WPA was created to improve the security of WEP. Like WEP, WPA encrypts information, but it also checks to make sure that the network security key has not been modified. WPA also authenticates users to help ensure that only authorized people can access the network. If your networking hardware works with both WEP and WPA security, we recommend that you use WPA.

There are two types of WPA authentication: WPA and WPA2. WPA is designed to work with all wireless network adapters, but it might not work with older routers or access points. WPA2 is more secure than WPA, but it will not work with some older network adapters. WPA is designed to be used with an 802.1X authentication server, which distributes different keys to each user. This is referred to as WPA-Enterprise or WPA2-Enterprise. It can also be used in a pre-shared key (PSK) mode, where every user is given the same passphrase. This is referred to as WPA-Personal or WPA2-Personal.

802.1X authentication
802.1X authentication can help enhance security for 802.11 wireless networks and wired Ethernet networks. 802.1X uses an authentication server to validate users and provide network access. On wireless networks, 802.1X can work with Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) keys. This type of authentication is typically used when connecting to a workplace network.

IF THIS ALL DOSEN'T WORK TRY THE FOLLOWING:

Wireless network security recommendations
If you have a wireless network, there are some additional security precautions that you should take.

Use a network security key
If you have a wireless network, you should set up a network security key, which turns on encryption. With encryption, people can't connect to your network without the security key. Also, any information that is sent across your network is encrypted so that only computers that have the key to decrypt the information can read it. This can help avert attempts to access your network and files without your permission. Common wireless network encryption methods are Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) and WPA-2.

Change the default administrator name and password on your router or access point
If you have a router or access point, you probably used a default name and password to set up the equipment. Most manufacturers use the same default name and password for all of their equipment, which someone could use to access your router or access point without you knowing it. To avoid that risk, change the default administrator user name and password for your router. Check the information that came with your device for instructions about how to change the name and password.

Change the default SSID
Routers and access points use a wireless network name called a service set identifier (SSID). Most manufacturers use the same SSID for all of their routers and access points. We recommend that you change the default SSID to keep your wireless network from overlapping with other wireless networks that might be using the default SSID. It makes it easier for you to identify which wireless network is yours, if there is more than one nearby, because the SSID is typically shown in the list of available networks. Check the information that came with your device for instructions about how to change the default SSID.

Position your router or access point carefully
Wireless signals can transmit a few hundred feet, so the signal from your network could be broadcast outside of your home. You can help limit the area that your wireless signal reaches by positioning your router or access point close to the center of your home rather than near an outside wall or window.

How to block users from accessing your wireless service?


You need to set up network security for your router. Set up a network password. I would recomment WEP since it is the easiest to manage. Make sure you save the password so that you can add to or change the network. You can get the instructions and manual for your particular version of the WGR614 at
