Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

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


Answers :

Virus control has got nothing to do with this question!!

A far better way would be to enable WEP security on the router and laptop.

Or if your router is able to do so set up the MAC access control.

You will need to find the MAC number of your and any other computers you want to use the router.

To do this click click start>run and type in IPCONFIG /ALL

a black dialog box will appear, look for your Lan card model and underneath is a set of numbers (called the physical address) the number you need will look something like this 00:aa:bb:22:cc:11:dd:33

Enter that number into the router. This way will only allow the machines that you enter the MAC address, to use the router to connect to the internet. Even if someone with a wireless laptop tried to connect to your router they won't be able to.

Hope this helps
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.

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
