I'm guessing this is a wireless router in which case you need to look at the router configuration and enable some security features such as changing the access rights and your admin password.

Usually typing the ethernet router IP address on the in your Internet Explorer address box will bring up the configuration.

Having an open router path to the internet for other wireless users is fine by the way. And unlikely to comprimise your security. You simply become a free mini ISP.
But if you feel it is slowing your own usage then block it.

I try to plug in my belkin 54 wireless usb thing into my xbox 360 and my xbox doesnt even recognize that it is in there and i dont know where to start but i would like to be able to play games online and...


Hi,

XBOX 360 is alredy wifi enabled you dont have to plug a thing in to it, if you want to configure wireless

All you got to do is turn on your wireless router/access point and try to search for available network in Xbox 360 and upon selectin the network it would ask for wireless key (WEP key cab found on the back or bottom of router) punch in the key and bingo...its done
Your box is ready to be wirelessly connected to internet and play online

alternatively if you dont ahve a wirelss router or you are facing difficulty is seraching wireless router or finding the security key

Connect the router to modem > then connect the router and XBOX with an ethernet cable
It will work

Else you can also try connecting the modem and XBOX with an ethernet or USB cable

(However in all the aboove scenario, please ensure the modem is getting the internet link through the normal RJ11 or phone cable, please dont unplug that else though your XBOX would be connected to Modem or router but it wont get internet connection)

Can I hook up a wireless router with only laptops


you need a pc or laptop using a hardwired connection prior to using the router, hence the name router, it routes the hardwired conenction and broadcasts it wirelessly.

Do i have to hardwire my Sony HDTV to my router to get it on my network, there is no mention of hardwiring in the manual


hi Steve
2 things to check. Is there an ethernet socket on the back of the TV? is there any mention of connecting by wireless? Chances are that if it connects by wireless there will be instructions how to do it as it won't be simple.
I think you'll find an ethernet socket on the back and then it will probably just work by plugging it in.

My computer is hardwired to a router. The message


This issue could be attributed to two reasons.

1. The router is faulty and continously causing the message to appear.
2. The ethernet cable is either faulty or connected loosely.

Check for the second factor first to eliminate issue.

Netgear wgr614 will let me connect to some sites but not others


I dont think there is anything wrong between your router.It's probably some other problem with the wireless pc..Also I am assuming you are using windows environment? If yes be careful when updating as there is a problem with internet explorer 8 and compatibility issues with some sites, even with youtube.com at the current moment.

1. click on start menu , type cmd , enter
2. COMMAND PROMPT dialogue box opens .
3. type . IPCONFIG
3. note your Default gateway.
4. open internet explorer
5. type your default gateway in browser address
6. it will prompt you to give user ID and password .
7 Your USER ID and password is ADMIN .
8. your router setup page opens .
9 change your local IP address to 192.168.3.1 .
10. Check mark on BRIDGING MODE .
11. Disable and enable your ethernet .

Can't browse my bank web site using Trendnet TEW-432BRP router.


When you are hardwired to the router you should disable the wireless internet access and enable the local area network.You should do the opposite when you are trying to connect to your router wireless.

Networking with Motorola SBG 900 Gateway


No, you don't need a router... that gateway supports up to 253 devices on your private network segment. That being said, you only have one ethernet port, so if your desktops have LAN cards rather than wireless, you'll need a hub to split off enough ports. If you add a router, it'll give you a whole new level of complexity. A gateway is a router/modem combo. It converts the Cable Internet signal from your ISP to ethernet and isolates all of the computers behind it into your own private network. A hub is basically an ethernet splitter... it won't isolate a new network segment, it'll just add more ports. Get a hub, they are cheaper and won't add a new level of complexity.
