Why can Networked Devices not be used when a VPN connection is active?


With most VPNs, as soon as the VPN connection is established, it will take precedence over all other network connections. Access to the Internet (other than to keep the VPN connection itself alive) will go via the VPN and the corporate network you are connected to, rather than the local ISP. Furthermore, access to the local network is temporarily disabled.

As a result, your local print server may not be accessible,
you cannot use devices via the Network USB hub, or the USB ports on your router (if it has these), you may not even be able to access your local router's configuration page or ping the router or other machines in the local network.

This is done because of security reasons.
When a computer is connected to a corporate network via a VPN, the administrator needs to make sure that that machine can not act as a some form of a gateway enabling other machines in the local network to access that corporate network in any way. For that reason, the machine connecting via the VPN must temporarily be isolated from the local network.

How can I keep someone from accessing the internet through my router


A couple of ways you could keep someone from accessing the Internet through your router. 1) You could use a network encryption key (WPA2 is best).2) Also you could enable MAC address filtering, which only allows devices that have whitelisted MAC addresses to have access to the Internet through your network

Set password for my belkin54g to stop others getting on our wifi


Is someone getting access to your network or to your router. When setting up any wireless network you should set up encryption and MAC filtering. Use WPA2 if possible as WEP is too easy to crack. Setting MAC filtering will only allow a machine that is registered on your network to have access even if they have the WAP or WAP2 pass-code. Your instruction manual should show you exactly where the password for Admin can be changed but rule of thumb is in Maintenance or Tools sections. Most new routers have built in help, this is a good place to start.

Hi,
 
To send messages from one computer to another download and run this exe on both computers.
http://www.ipmsg.org/index.html.en IP Messenger for Win ver2.06 (103KB) 
You can copy to startup and fiddle around with the settings.
Small app which gets the job done.
 
For shutting down a remote computer
Source: http://www.tweakxp.com/article36917.aspx
Right click on desktop, create new short-cut.
Type shutdown.exe -i
Click next, type in name for your short-cut e.g. shutdown computers
Click finish.
Run the short-cut you just created. Now you can browse the network for computers to shutdown/reboot etc. or just type in the IP/Name of the computer.
You can even broadcast a message, and schedule the shutdown.
NOTE:  You will only be able to shut down computers that you have admin access on!
 
Hope this helps. Please rate your feedback!
Thanks,
VJ

Help with Xerox DC 440ST Machine


This problem can only be cured by a Xerox engineer or by someone who has access to a Xerox laptop. You have to have a special program called AltBoot to be able to reload the software.
The only other way is to replace the SCSI hard drive in the ESS (network controller unit) with one that has been pre-programmed.

Help setting up hwr54g as an access point


Yes there is an easier way! Just setup the router as you would any normal setup. Follow the directions to set it up for the first time. What you want to do is have the put in all of your information that you need for it to communicate with your Modem. This will automatically place the router onto your network. Now the part that I believe you want is for this to be secure! Well setup either a WEP or WPA these are both encryption Protocols that will denie access to anyone other than you or someone you allow to access your network wirelessly.
You do not really have to go through all of the trouble of setting up specifics. As long as the two devices communicate the router and the modem will do the rest. I do this everyday in my daily work day! Anymore quesitons please feel free to ask!

acer aspire 5335-2257 replaced 4 pin power jack intermittent power, only runs with battery but barely charges. acer aspire 5335-2238. My son's friend recently asked me to take a look at his laptop because he couldn't get it to take a charge or run without the battery when plugged in. Right away I noticed the dc jack was charred and the plastic around it melted. He said the power cord "brick" got really hot, all the way to the tip where it plugs into the laptop. I know the bricks can get warm but he said it actually burned his sister. I ended up replacing the dc jack and 4 pin harness with a new one and figured this would solve the power issue. It won't get power with the original power cord and I also tried a few others that were similar. The only one that worked was an adaptor that I think went to a cordless phone or something like. The next problem was I had to fiddle with the dc jack to get the yellow battery light on. Still won't turn on without battery. The battery at this point is drained so I left it plugged in all day, at least 12 hours and the green light finally came on indicating a charged battery. The battery only charged about 8-9% and died fast. I tried more adaptors and got another one to light up the yellow battery light, again a small modem adaptor, not one with the brick. This time I left it over night and got about 12% charge. Both times the laptop turned on, booted up and ran until the battery died after about 5 min. I'm out of ideas aside from maybe a bios problem but I can't get it to stay on long enough to do anything about it. I don't understand why the new jack isn't working, it's a pretty simple install, no soldering. I looked real close at the board and didn't see any obvious fried chips or anything like that. Any suggestions would be great. I've had this 14 year old kid's laptop for almost 2 weeks trying to figure it out (I also replaced his keyboard, disc drive and cleaned it up) and he's calling me every day.
