It is quite possible. You may have to access the user interface of your 2wire 1800 gh and then enable secured site access. You may have to open port 443 or lower your MTU to about 1400 or 1300. Please PM if you need further information

I was having a similar problem, and solved it by upgrading the firmware of my router. Once I did the firmware upgrade, blocking worked fine. You can get the firmware upgrade by going to the Linksys website, clicking on Support, and then specifying your router model number.

Hello.

If you are using Internet Explorer, here's the latest version:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/Internet-explorer/default.aspx

If you are using Firefox, here's the latest version:

http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/upgrade.html

But, I'm a little suspicious of the message that you encountered. It could be spyware or malware. So, first download and run from Spybot (http://www.spybot.com) and Malwarebytes (http://www.malwarebytes.com)

Hope this helps.

Netgear DG824m Disconnecting every few mintes


There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arid welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply)
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

Power light flashing/blinking on the BEFSR41 V3


This is caused by the firmware not loading correctly. Follow the steps below to fix this. 1. You will need to gain Internet access to download the latest firmware for your router. The firmware must be present on the computer that will do the upgrade. Temporarily bypass the router and plug directly into your Internet Service Provider?s modem to gain access, or use another location other than your own to get to the Internet and download the firmware. 2. Download the latest firmware for your Router from http://www.linksys.com/download/firmware.asp. Select the model number of the Linksys router you have. Be sure to select the correct router version (BEFSR41 V3), as firmware upgrades vary by version. 3. Click the ?Get Upgrade? button. 4. After the firmware page opens, click the link that says, ?Click here to download the latest firmware...? and download the firmware file. Once you download the Zip file, unzip it and extract all files. If you do not have an unzipping program, go to http://www.winzip.com and download WinZip, which will allow you to unzip the file. Before performing the upgrade, assign your computer a static IP address. For more information, please see Answer ID 534 for instructions. If using a 10/100-network adapter, change its speed to 10Mb, half duplex. For instructions on doing so: Windows 95/98/ME 1. At the Windows desktop, click on Start then choose Settings and click on Control Panel. 2. Double click the Network icon. This will bring up the ?Network Configuration? window. 3. Locate and highlight the icon with the green logo for your network adapter and click Properties. 4. This will display the network adapter's Properties. 5. Select the Advanced tab and click Connection Type (this may also appear as Media Type, Connection Speed, Mode, Link Speed, etc). The current default value should be set to "Auto sense" or "Auto". 6. Change the value of this option to 10Base-t, half duplex mode (usually the lowest possible option). The wording of this value may also vary, depending upon the make and model of the Network Adapter. Other possibilities include 10T half, 10Mb half duplex, 10Mbps half, etc. 7. Once this has been changed, click OK to return to the Network configuration screen. 8. Click OK again and Windows will ask to restart your computer. Click ?Yes? to restart. Windows 2000/XP 1. Go to Start click on Run and type in control ncpa.cpl. 2. Double click on the Local Area Connection that controls your network card. 3. Click Properties under Local Area connection status. 4. Click the Configure button. Then, click on the Advanced Tab. 5. Click Connection Type (this may also appear as Media Type, Connection Speed, Mode, Link Speed, etc). The current default value should be set to "Auto sense" or "Auto". 6. Change the value of this option to 10Base-t, half duplex mode (usually the lowest possible option). The wording of this value may also vary, depending upon the make and model of the Network Adapter. Other possibilities include 10T half, 10Mb half duplex, 10Mbps half, etc. 7. Click OK after you made the change then click Close. Reloading the firmware 1. First, hold the reset button located on the back of the router for 30 seconds. 2. Next, to test communication between the Router and the network card: Go to Start, and select Run. Type in command and press [Enter ]. This will bring up the MS-DOS prompt window. 3. Type ping 192.168.1.1 and press [Enter ]. 4. You should get the following results: Pinging 192.168.1.1 with 32 bytes of data: Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=128 Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=128 Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=128 Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL= 128 5. Once you get these replies, close out of the command prompt by typing in exit and pressing [Enter ]. 6. You may now proceed to upgrade the router?s firmware with the files that were downloaded. 7. Once the upgrade is complete, the router's Power light should no longer be blinking. Note: Be sure to go back to your network card settings (from the steps above) and change the speed of the link back to ?Auto sense? or ?Auto? (the original default setting) to restore full speed to the adapter. If any of the steps do not work, or if you are having other difficulties, please contact Linksys Technical Support for further assistance.
