I currently have internet access and "E" mail through Verizon via a land line; also have a G-Mail account on my I Pad. How can I eliminate my Verizon "E" mail and continue with G-Mail on my computer


Well...technically you cannot 'eliminate' your Verizon eMail account as that is how Verizon 'recognizes' you as a customer on their site. You have to use that to log into your Verizon account to pay your bill or change your services...etc.

That said, you do not have to keep logging-in to LOOK at your mail. If you are using a pop3 mail-client, (like Outlook, or Outlook Express or Windows Live Mail,) then there ARE steps you should do to 'remove' that account from whichever client you have...or they can be set to keep the mail they have so-far, but not to download any more from that account, it depends on the client, and what your preferences are.

If you only look at your mail using a web-browser and going to verizon's website, then again, you would just stop doing that.

How do I find out if someone from outside my home is using my wireless network


Hi,
You need to log on to your router/s and look at the log.
You should also change your security settings in your router/s so this won't happen again.

Good Luck!

I need to know, Incoming mail server and outgoing e-mail server name


This information can be obtained from your service provider, for example mine is incoming.verizon.net and outgoing.verizon.net but not all ISP use the same scheme. Usually information on setting up POP email is provided on their website.

How do I lock my netgear wgr614 router, so no-one else can use my internet access?


You can set up you virus control to advise you if someone else is trying to use your wireless network. Investigate all the options available in your virus control.. It should be under network security.Also, when I am not using my computer I turn the main internet switch off.

Hi there, the disks will only work if you have the drive that came with the laptop/dekstop

You will need to get hold of an OEM version of Windows XP Home - you can reinstall from scratch, but will need to install the drives etc for your computer seperately,

You will use the licence key that was proved with your computer.

That will sort it out.

Regards

Chris

Need to reregister account, after pc went down. need e mail settings to set up outlook express in order to get e mails. please send settings to my daughters e mail address tracylisa@btinternet.com


Many service providers have a link on their page that will automatically configure Outlook Express to receive e-mail. I would suggest that the first place to look is the main page for your service provider (Optonline, Time-Warner, Verizon, whatever) and find the tab for "support" or Frequently Asked Questions. Type in "e-mail" at the search box, and you should see some answer listed for "setting up my e-mail account (on my computer, or something like that.) Specific wording depends on your service provider.
Then, most providers have a link you can click that will run a program to automatically set it up for you.
Here's a page from Verizon, which will give you an idea of the process:

We have a Wireless network set up at home using Airport on a Mac with the Mac acting as the hub for internet access. Most of the computers in the house are Macs and work on the network quite cheerfully as...


Hi,

Have you tried static IP addresses on the 2 new laptops even if DHCP is enabled?

Additionally, pls try with the WEP, WPA or MAC Filter off/disabled.

Alternately, on the 2 new units, pls try configuring the Wireless LAN Properties Advanced tab to use "ANY" or your SSID.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How to protect my belkin 54g wireless connection from intruders. Please help me with that


There is no sure way to stop intruders - if they want to get in they can and will.

However in saying that you can certainly be smarter than the average jo driving around an estate looking for open wireless routers.

First thing first, always change the default password for the router (admin, password). If you can, change the username also (from admin to something else).

Secondly I would recommend that you enable some kind of WPA (or WEP) protection. This basically means that anyone attempting to connect to your wireless will require a "password" to connect to you. The more bits the password has the longer the password is and usally the harder it is to crack (via a brute force attack).

Thirdly - Hide your SSID. All routers by default show to the world they exist. If someone doesnt see it broadcasting generally they wont know its there.

Forthly. I would recommend setting up access lists. On every network card (be it wired or wireless) has a unique identifier called a MAC address. An access list restricts which MAC addresses can physically connect to your router. To find out your mac address click Start - Run. Type CMD. Type IPCONFIG /ALL

Fifthly - This may require a bit more fiddling around between both the router and PC's but may be worth it in the long run. Most routers broadcast whats called DHCP. This is what gives you an internal IP address. If your router allows you setup the DHCP settings to something incorrect EG: Different Subnet mask, DNS settings, Default Gateway. Then setup your home PC's manually to the correct settings. This way if someone does end up cracking your router it will throw another curveball at them as they will not be able to surf the net, view your shared files, without more fiddling.

As far as PC based security goes, I would suggest that you check any shared files or folders you may have and disable, setup how many people can use it at once, permissions etc for them. Best way to check would be Click Start - Run. Type \\127.1.1.0 <- This will connect to your pc via the network.

The battle: Acer Vs. Verizon FiOS


Verizon needs to apply a firmware update for the Atheros wireless adapter in your notebook. I work for Acer and I end up having to tell people this all day long. If you take this to a wireless router that is not from verizon you will have no problems with your connection. Maybe if enough Fios customers complain they will provide a firmware update for this.
