Problems setting up 2 separate (secure) internet connections
Hi, my landlord and I are trying to set up separate internet connections on the router. Your website seems to have been down the last few days so we've had trouble getting back into the set up. We need to enter in the IP address for my connection as right now my IP address isnt being recognised. How do you do this? **Also how do you locate your IP address so that we can enter it in. As well my landlord changed something last night so that I could temporarily use his connection till we get mine all figured out and right now the connections are not secure (meaning anyone in the area could connect to our wireless net) How do we make the connection secure again?

WPA key is set on the router to allow access to the wireless LAN. If you change it on your machine you will not get network access until you change it back. If you change it on the router he will not have access to the LAN.
You could turn File Sharing and Network Discovery off, if you are concerned - I'm assuming he does not have a password for your machine. Make sure your firewall is active also.

Before we start, try hooking your laptop up directly to the modem - if you're not getting an internet connection there, call your Internet Service Provider. If you are, then follow the steps below.
1) Make sure that you're not using more than one router at the same time. One router should be hooked up directly to your modem in the WAN port.
If you have wireless security enabled, go to step 2
2) As a test, remove the security on your wireless network and then see if you can access the internet properly. The router can be accessed by typing it its address in internet explorer, as long as you are connected to the router. Generally the address is 192.168.1.1
3) If you still can't access the internet, go to Internet Explorer Options, the Connections tab, LAN settings, and make sure "use a proxy server" is NOT checked.
4) If you DO get an internet connection now, go back to your router and enable WPA security (some older laptops have problems with WPA2 connections).
If everything doesn't work, post back with some more details!
1. this issue may be due to the age of the router and also firmware updates need as it reads 2. check the manufacturers site for update instruction set 3.Here are some step to try to see if the router is indeed grandfathered: 1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox) 2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window) 3.Note router name you are connecting to. 4.. Check the laptop/desktop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses. 5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser. 6.Note router name you are connecting to. 7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet. This is for all routers to set up wirelessly. 8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router 9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.
You can try to connect to the internet wireless using your wireless router however, you need to know the Network Name (SSID) and the Network Key of your Router. You can find that on the router settings page. Heres how you can connect your Wii
1. Go to Wii settings 2. Internet connection settings 3. Search for an AP (Network Name or SSID) 4. Input security key (Network Key) Thanks for using Fixya.
Local acces only means that your conenction is ok justthat the network security on your router and laptop is not the same try removing the erouter security or try changing the security in your laptop to match what the router has .........
It depends on your router settings. If you use a password, your landlord will need to know the type of security and your password. If you use a mac address filter, you'll need to add your landlords mac address to the list in your settings. Try connecting to your router in a web browser, it's probably at 192.168.1.1, and look at your security settings.
Connect the router directly via lan to your computer.
goto setup of the router: usuallly via the ip-adress of your router (see manual, usually: 192.168. ***.*)
Now look at the network security-settings .
The security code, that is called network key, is stored inside the router. Check your router manual, it will tell you how to connect to the router using Internet Explorer. You put router IP number on Internet explorer bar and open router control panel, then you go into wireless settings, and there you find the key.
Inability to access certain websites is due to three main factors.
Security on the web browser is set too high
MTU not set on the router properly
Lowering Down the Security Settings on Internet Explorer
Step 1: Double-click Internet Explorer and click Tools. Step 2: Select Internet Options, click Security then CustomLevel. A window similar to Step 3 will appear. Step 3: Select Medium-low under the Resetto drop-down menu.
If this did not work, you may try to:
-- enable the MTU on the router.
-- forward port 443 on the router
