...however you can disable ICS then switch to lan 1 to make the changes, ...

Switch to Lan 1? Do you mean move the cable from modem port to Lan 1 port instead .... make changes then switch back before resetting ICS? Edited by coachgeo

disable internet connection sharing first then move the cable to connection 1 on the router.

 

you should then be able to log onto the routers configuration page.

 

good luck

when setting WPA codes in the Lan computers.... where

 

Windows where

 

Linux where*

 

 

In linux will there be any wording that might throw me off as a window user. For example is it WPA for them too or do the call it something else?

 

Think I know these answers just clarifying

windows will ask for a key

 

linux will ask for a key

well that was odd.

 

Leo the Linux machine connecting via wireless did ask for the key

 

the windows unit acro did not ask for the key.. oh wait..... no that is not odd... Acro is hardwired to the router.

 

question about Leo linux wireless- Will I need that key everytime I restart it?

 

can I program it in there to auto log on all the time?

once you add the key to the linux box' it will connect automatically on each and every startup.

 

wired pc's do not need a key

you are totally welcome :)

 

come back once in a wile, if you have linux questions feel free to post in the linux part of the forum' me and many other would be glad to help you :tup:

 

things to learn in the future :

 

read about disabling ssid broadcast>>> a network hijacker cannot connect to a network he/ she cannot see !

 

linux and windows will connect to a hidden network....

 

also consider using wpa2 encryption instead of wep !

 

on windows and linux' it would be a few more steps getting it to connect but well worth the effort.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

create a password for logging onto the routers configuration page.

 

 

 

over time you want to do these things for better security.

 

 

 

 

;)

 

edit: remember' the router has a firewall built in' the wired and wireless pc do not need third party firewalls.

things to learn in the future :

will do (NOW HAVE

also consider using wpa2 encryption instead of wep !

I used wpa2 not wep when I set up my password

on windows and linux' it would be a few more steps getting it to connect but well worth the effort.

hardwire asked nothing as we discussed and wireless linux asked for the key; as we discussed

...create a password for logging onto the routers configuration page.

... thought about it... will keep in mind.
