Stop other from stealing internet

Is there a way to lock the router to certain computers only? My threshold keeps going over and I'm not even on the computer. There are 2 in my house that use the router but neither of us hardly use it.

Within the router's web based utilities, you can enable MAC filtering. Allow your router to search for the computers that are using your wireless network and only allow the MAC addresses of the computers that are yours. All others that do not have your permission (on the filtering list) can't access your network.

Need to reset password on a Belkin d80


To restore it to the factory settings press a paperclip into the hole marked "reset" for 5-10 seconds. Do that wile the router is on. Then if you need to set a special password you can connect to it and change the password.

To change the password connect to your router by going to your browser on your computer after connecting to your router. The default address for belkin is usually "192.168.2.1" for login its either "admin" or just left blank. there shouldn't be any password. After you login you can go through the settings and change your wifi name and password. Most routers also have many other security options like only allowing certain computers on that you add their mac addresses. Hope this helped. If you need more help just leave a comment.

How to Detect if Someone's Stealing Your WiFi


Detecting Wireless Piggybacking Okay, it's time to get down to it. Is your wireless network running slowly? Do you have intermittent losses in Internet access and you can't figure out why? Chances are, you've already detected a WiFi squatter and didn't even know it. If you regularly experience these problems, maybe you have something wrong with your wireless connection. But if you're suddenly having intermittent problems with your Internet performance, especially at the same time each day, it's a red flag that someone is piggybacking off your wireless connection and it's time for you to diagnose your WiFi network.
The first and simplest thing you can do is check out your wireless network connection and see if it's secure. When you install your router, you're given the option of setting a wireless encryption protocol (WEP) key. Basically this is a password-protected method for you to log on to your own wireless network. If you don't have one, you're operating an open network. That means anyone within range can use your wireless for free. While it's not hacking, it is debatable as to whether this is actually stealing. In any case, if you don't have a WEP key, you're vulnerable to WiFi squatting and certainly not deterring squatters.
Even if you have a WEP key, that doesn't necessarily mean your neighbor hasn't bypassed it. To determine if he or she is logging onto your wireless network, you can do so by checking your wireless network log. To do this, click your Start Menu in Microsoft Windows, then double-click My Network Places. Next, double-click View Entire Network. If there are more devices connected than you have allowed on your network, you have WiFi thieves.
A similar method to determining the status of your WiFi user list is to check your router's DHCP client table. Much like viewing your network, your DHCP client table will list the machines on your network. If the number exceeds what you've set up, you have someone stealing your WiFi.
Nobody wants to be taken advantage of. What's more, you certainly don't want illegal information flowing through your wireless network. That's why you need to take matters in your own hands. The final section will give you the power to thwart off Internet thieves and protect your wireless connection. Are you ready to fight back? Turn the page to learn how.
Stopping Digital Thieves A WEP key is an absolute must for any wireless network; however, even those are vulnerable. While WEP protection will stop the guy parking in front of your house, it may not stop a more determined user like your neighbor. In that case, you can use a security protocol such as WiFi protected access (WPA). This route is more secure but can still be hacked by a determined WiFi thief.
You can also use manual DHCP assignment. To do this, simply set your router's DHCP to the manual setting and enter in each of your computer's physical addresses. This will restrict your network to allow only those computers recognized by the router.
If the manual DHCP route isn't comfortable for your level of computer expertise, you may want to consider generating a MAC access list which usually can be created through the browser interface of the router. Unfortunately, MAC address lists can also be bypassed by savvy WiFi thieves; nevertheless, when used in conjunction with other security methods, they're probably enough on a small home network.
Internet monitoring software is also a viable option. Monitoring software will walk you through some of these methods and is user friendly for those who aren't as comfortable setting up wireless security methods. In addition, monitoring software makes it easy to see what is going on with your wireless connection. Your WiFi router may have some built-in software that will help you monitor your network. Explore the user guide and help section to see if there's a built-in application that will help.
Finally, turn off your router's SSID broadcasting. This effectively makes your network invisible. It's much harder to steal WiFi from a network that doesn't appear on anyone's radar.
Next time you suspect WiFi theft, peek out the front window and see if an unfamiliar car is parked in front of or close to your home. If so, you'll probably find someone in the car sapping your Internet. It sounds simple, but it could be just that easy to determine if someone is stealing your WiFi.

Where is the administration located?


You need to encrypt your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from Belkin to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open a browser on your laptop/computer and enter the Belkin's configuration URL. http://192.168.2.1
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password.
You can now configure the wireless settings to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings. To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

No problem just purchased and going online for 6 months tech support. can't seem to find out how to do this


haaa, HP offered on-line services if only if you pay...but it won't do any good because it only could solve low-end user problems who don't know how to connect computer to router/modem, who don't know how to stop invader steal their internet services(most low-end users even didn't know it) thru wireless router...
uless your computer still could run internet at least O.S/Bios, beyond that you can't solve your problem by on-line services, or phone-services.

I have speed stream 4100 router. How do I check


Hi,

Login to your router, set the wireless mode to WPA for encoding, then make a strong password, this will be un-breakable as it uses AES encoding.

How do I lock my RCA DCW615R router?


You Router supports either WEP or WPA Security. First thing to do is enable the security, it will become difficult to enter from other users.
IF your using a default gateway (192.168.x.x) which is your Router Address. You can enter by Internet Explorer to go inside the Firmware of your Router (http://192.168.0.1) then enter.

This is an example of firmware worksheet:

Depending on the Router you have, you should be able to go to the config page from your computer.  You have to have it wired to your computer, not wireless, to make the changes.  In the config tab you should see wireless security.  Type the passphrase and save it.  All wireless devices must also use this passphrase to connect.
