How to access router menu to set wireless security?

When I try to access my router menu and type in it's IP address (192.168.0.1) I get my modem menu instead. My Ethernet cable plugs directly into my modem before reaching my router. I tried plugging the Ethernet into my router first but could not get Internet access. I also tried using a LAN cable directly from my computer to the router to no avail. Any ideas what I should do?

Answer: 
I'm a little confused as to how your connections are running but here's now they should normally work. Broadband modem ---- Ethernet cable ----- >> WAN port on router Router LAN port ---- Ethernet cable ---- >> Computer/laptop If this is indeed how you're equipment is connected and you're still getting the modem's setup menu instead of your router's, the issue might be that both the modem and your router have the same IP address. I actually had this happen once with a broadband provider that my parents once used. In that case, try disconnecting the router from the modem so that only your computer and the router are connected and you should be able to access the router's settings screens. While you're in there, you'll want to change the router's IP address from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.2.

How to connect my desktop to my wifi modem that is already connected to another desktop?

I have my wifi modem connected to one of my desktop computers. How can I make the other desktop computer connect to the internet without having to connect the modem?

you will need a wireless adapter for the pc to be able to connect wirelessly, usb wireless adapters are the easiest to set up as you do not have to install anything inside the pc case, just run the software to install the drivers, then plug in the usb wireless adapter and it will connect, there are also wireless adapters that fit into a pci slot inside the pc but the usb ones are the easiest

How to use a wifi signal from another router to my router?

We currently don't have Internet, but I do have my wireless Linksys router still. Neighbor/friend has NETGEAR and WiFi and doesn't mind us using it, however signal is kind of weak in some spots. Can I somehow get that connected to MY router so I can have better signal? (Connecting my router to his wifi basically) or does the router need a wired modem connection.

Answer: 
Here you go... http://www.amazon.com/Linksys-RE1000-Wireless-N-Range-Extender/dp/B005FDXMJS/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1350319507&sr=8-7&keywords=wireless+booster There's tons of different ones on the market. They call em range extenders, signal boosters, repeaters, just pick the one that's good for you. As a backup option, if you don't have the money to dump into new stuff, you could ad hoc an old pc and put it closest to your neighbors house, that'll allow you to connect other devices to the network thru the old pc you have.

How to connect android device to ad hoc network?

I created an ad hoc network to share my internet connection. I have no problem connecting to it with my iPod, but I can't use it with android. It simply doesn't appear there. How do I connect?

Answer: 
For some reason some Android devices do not support connection to Ad-hoc networks. I have seen this problem with an Android 2.3 system, but I have also used an Ad-hoc network on an Android 4.0 system. If your Android system does not support Ad-hoc, you will probably have to use a wireless router provide an infrastructure network to connection.

How to increase the speed of my torrents while using a usb modem?

Recently my torrent speeds have reduced to a crawl, the max i can get from a torrent is 10-15kb/s though there were instances where my speeds went up to 100kb/s. I havent been messing with my settings the speeds just changed one day and havent improved ever since. Any idea on how i can resolve this?

Answer: 
the speed of you torrents can be slowed by many factors and most not related to your modem there are some things to look at 1.) your isp could be throttling you speeds for torrent traffic 2.) the torrent site your using could have slow torrents 3.) firewalls/antivirus can slow down you torrent connection but constantly scanning all the incomming traffic you can try encrypting your torrent traffic for instance utorrent has an option to encrypt your torrents theres not much you can do about the isp slowing down your torrents
