Question about Arris WR850GP Router

1 Answer

Network parental control

Is there a way to use my Motorola WR850GP for parental control of the whole home network? The parental control page of the router firmware seems very archaic. Do I really have to input all the x rated web pages and all the dirty language as keywords in order for the router to function as parental control? Is there an easier way to protect my whole home network? It consists of two desktops, two wireless laptops, and a sony play station 3 with wireless. Even if i purchase software and load it up on the computers, i dont have a clue as to how to install it on the play station even if i can. Our ISP is Bellsouth but they have been little help. My modem is a Westell I got from Bellsouth, but the router I got from Radio Shack.
Is there another device I can purchase to install between the router and the modem that would offer protection? My main concern is someone accessing ****. One of the desktops is a business computer so I have to have the home network up and running all the time. Any suggestions? Thanks.

If you want dynamic monitoring/filtering of the web traffic you might need to install software on all the PC's! When it comes to the Playstation 3, there should be settings on there that you can set! Check out this page : http://www.gamerdad.com/detail.cfm?itemID=3558 When it comes to the dynamic filtering of sites, the most highly rated Parental Control Software is Content Protect(Now NetNanny)! http://www.netnanny.com/ By dynamic filtering, it means the the parental control mechanism, automatically blocks sites due to content(it updates over the internet!) The router can only do so much! :( hope this was helpful, regards, babb

DSL line at new office connects directly to two different laptops just fine (one Windows, one Mac). But connecting DSL line to WR850GP shows no data. Wirelessly or by cable. Doesn't make sense if WR850GP...

When you have DSL, all routers have to be configured for it. That means accessing the setup page and typing in your username and password that your ISP (Internet Provider) gave you. Have you done this?

The modem light is off on my Motorola modem.

Ah, someone that actually makes use of the word "nor" I would first unplug the CAT-5 cable that goes from your modem into your router to check that it's not your router's fault. To make sure that every computer that is plugged into the router is on the network you should PING each computer to see if you can reach it.

Find out the IP of your computer by clicking Start then Run then type in CMD. Once your in CMD (Command Prompt) you should type in IPCONFIG. That command will give you a response with your IP Address in it. Take that IP and go to another computer in your network and use the PING command in CMD by typing PING 192.168.1.??? in CMD.

If your PINGing session is successful then it's a problem with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and should be handled by contacting them and having the problem fixed because it's an issue at their end. If it's not it's a problem with your router and can be handled by having a specialist come to your home and to fix/set up your network or I could remotely control your computer to fix it.

It's your choice, but the specialist will cost and I won't.

Thanks,

Cant get my friends laptop onto my wireless network? Is something set up wrong in my wireless settings? I have my own laptop on my wireless but noone else can get on even when they have my password

Your friends wireless card in the laptop has to be configured with your wireless router's settings, eg. the WEP or WAP encryption, SSID etc.
Check the router's settings and the wireless card settings in your laptop, configure your friend's wireless exactly as your laptop.

Torrents Cause Timeouts on Motorola wr850gp

You need to set a BANDWIDTH limit on your torrents. Usually about two thirds you bandwidth eg if you had a 6mb connection set it for a max of 4 mb.

Many ISP's also throttle torrents to a point where it can stall out and cause issues elsewhere in a network.

If your torrent program has any stealth capabilities try setting those.
The terminology for that varies from program to program.

Wireless router

Yes I can help you... Do you know how to access the routers programming? If not open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. By default the ip address should be set to 192.168.10.1 or 192.168.1.1 By default the username is
admin and the password is motorola. Now you see a menu says Motorola broadband wireless router... Click Networking you should find all the relevant information your looking for in there look for the tab that says Port Triggering. SlingBox requires you to forward the 5001 ports. So name the port trigger SlingBox1 make sure its enabled and set TCP incoming to 5001-5001 Another one should pop up name it Slingbox2 set to UDP ports incoming 5001-5001 and that should be it. Now click the ADD button and then click APPLY at the bottom of page.
