Block Wired Computer From Accessing Internet Through Router?
Feb 9, 2011
how to block a user from using the internet when they plug their computer into a router. My roommate has refused to pay her share of the internet and, being a college student, I don't have enough money where I feel generous enough to let her have free internet after stiffing me. Basically, I have 2 routers at the moment (hoping to fix this soon): my Qwest modem works as a router but I also have a Linksys router connected to it. The only phone jack is in her room so I have no way of stopping her from plugging her computer straight into the modem and/or router. I've configured the wireless so that she would be unable to access the, wirelessly but I'd like to know how to prevent her accessing the internet when she plugs her computer directly into either component.
I have a DIR-615 router. I would like to know if it is possible to block a PS3 from accessing the internet completely, without blocking any other computers/devices. I have access to the router, but not to the PS3 itself.
I have a VMware workstation on my host computer (windows 7) and the VMware workstation has a virtual machine (windows 7) on the host. We were trying to allow internet access only to the Virtual machine, i.e. to minimize exposure of the host to the internet. I tried to use Vlan Access Control list with MAC ACL to deny the host virtual machine from accessing the internet and allow all other traffic including the virtual machine. The configuration works for some time and after some time when the virtual machine continously pings the c3750 switch (wher the VACL is implemented), the host also pings the c3750 switch and re-establishes connection with the internet. But when we configured the c3750 switch to deny the VM and allow all other traffic, it works fine. It seems like the host automatically finds a way to get arround the VACL.
Any step by step instructions (for the DIR-655) on how to block a PS3 from accessing this router? I know how to log into the router's page and I can get the MAC address of the PS3, but I am clueless from there. I want to block it completely is possible.
I am with Virgin media (UK) and have the 20mbps fiber optic connection. My area has recently been having problems with the broadband and Virgin has recently fixed these problems. However I used to get around 19mbps now that the problem is fixed my computer which is wired to the router gets about 0.4mbps downstream... However the 5 wireless computers all get 16mbps which is pretty good for them. Windows tells me that its a firewall issue and I currently can't use two programs, spotify and steam. They both have firewall issues, even if I turn off my firewall which is the windows one. I also have avast, and when I turn that off, still no good. I used OpenDNS, stopped using that flushed my DNS, that didnt work. I tried to optimize my computer settings, by changing various values in Regedit.All of this has done nothing. I should add that I have recently re-installed Windows 7 so on this fresh install it has never had decent internet speed. Which I thought was weird.. I have basically had these problems since the fresh install. All of my drivers are up to date.
I have a home network that uses a DLINK DIR-655 router. All of my devices ( a mix of wireless and wired) except one--a windows xp SP 3 desktop that stopped working yesterday. Some viruses, and adware were detected and it has not worked since then. What I have done.
I have a computer on my network I would like to use for media streaming. I would like to block all incoming/outgoing internet traffic and keep all network traffic on this computer local. Is this even possible? Can I also easily restore it if necessary? The computer is running Windows 7.
I just moved from a Linksys wired router to the Cisco EA2700 wired/wireless router.I have three web servers on my network that serve up content via standard web URLs. For example, pretend www.domain.com pointed to the WAN side of my EA2700. Port forwarding routes port 80 traffic to the server, located on an internal, private IP (ie, 192.168.1.21).All works well when accessing these servers from outside my network (I checked this via my mobile broadband connection). But when I'm on a workstation internal to the same network as the servers, I cannot connect to the servers via the web URL. Of course, I can hit them via the IP or an internal-only DNS network entry. For example, when on 192.168.1.55 on a desktop machine, and I type the URL in the form www.domain.com, it just hangs and times out. I was able to do this on the old Linky router. Traffic should go stop at the router and be re-routed back internally to the port-forwarded server - but it does not.
I have to route properly via the web URL and not the internal DNS name or IP addy, as I am running virtual web servers on IIS on one of the servers.Is there a setting I failed to set on the EA2700?
I am experiencing loss of internet access when browsing to amazon.com. In addition to losing internet access, I am unable to connect to my BEFSR81 router when this happens. To resolve I have to walk over to my router and reset it by cycling the power.
This issue has been reported by other users of the BEFSR81 too: URL
Details: My BEFSR81 is version 3.0 and is running firmware version 2.51.4
I have a Linksys WRT54G to which 2 computers are connected of which one has no problems at all.The other computer just had its hard drive replaced and Windows XP Pro SP1 installed on the new hard drive. With the new operating system, I cannot get the computer to access the router. The connection status reports that the network device is working but IPCONFIG /ALL reports nothing (blank). The NIC is onboard the motherboard (ASUS P5LP-LE). I have swapped out cable ports at the router and tried a different cable to the faulty computer to no avail. If I had a spare NIC I would already have tried that too. FYI, it was working without problems prior to the hard drive crash that prompted the new drive and OS install.I tried a wireless USB network interface (Zonet ZEW2508) and the computer also reports it working. However, the network icon continually cycles between connected and unavailable, about 6 seconds connected and 1 second unavailable. IPCONFIG also reports blank on this.
How do I block a particular IP from accessing my network entirely? I have a hacker with a known IP I want to shut out. I tried creating a DENY inbound filter (with just that IP as the range) but that didn't seem to work. that hacker kept being able to attempt logins.
I am using a LinkSys Model: WRT54G Version: 6 wireless router configured to use WEP.I have two computers, the main desktop and a laptop for mobile operation.How do I configure the LinkSys to allow the laptop to access a external (mapped) USB drive on the desktop?
The laptop can access the mapped drive on the desktop when it is hardwired to the LinkSys (i.e., not wireless) but I cannot find a reference in the Pdf manual or online on how to access the drive on the desktop from the laptop when the laptop is connected via the WiFi.The desktop is running XpSp3 and the laptop is Vista.A second and more important question is should I do this. Can the accessing of the drive via the WiFi be done with adequate security. I would rather err on the side of caution.
In my office there is 2 desktops which is networked. one is in the office and the other in my room. internet connection is also there, the modem is kept in my room. but one of my cousin is there in my house and he has a laptop, the internet for his lap is taken from my modem. and now i have noticed that my cousin is visiting adult content sites and i want to block him ? is there any way. why the history he uses is being shown in my browsers history ?
I have a linksys wrt54g router. i need to block all devices except one from plugging in a wired device into the back of the router. i tried the mac filtering, but i didnt work. Is that for wireless only?I can also block local ips (192.168.1.x), and was going to go that route and only allow my local computer but i was afraid if i restarted my router or computer the ip would change and i would be locked out.
I have Cisco ASA 8.0(5) and I need to block specific url to acees my https server in dmz ?I read about websence technology, but I think it's not free right? Also I read abotu policy inspection map's but in my case is HTTPS not http ..
if the firewall rules in the RVL200 work for inter LAN routing as well as LAN<->WAN? I need 2 separate networks in a house, 1 for business 1 for family, and I want to only allow my IP on network 1 (family net,10.0.0.0/24) access to network 2 (business net 10.0.1.0/24). I want this as if I change rooms were a access point for business is not available I can use the home net and specific IP to access certain business net IPs. I saw you can turn inter vlan routing on or off, but it wasn't clear on firewall rules.know of a similar router in cost but with gige instead of 100Mb ports?
I have a LAN with 6 vlans and a 2821 router. By default, intervlan routing is enabled for all vlans, however, I want specific vlans to be denied access to others, though all should still be able to use the Internet being served from GE/0.
I have a Belkin F5D8636-4 v2 N Wireless Modem Router. For some reason, it will only connect to the internet if the wired computer is plugged in and on. I tried starting the router without it plugged in and it kept trying and failing to connect to the internet. As soon as I plugged in the wired computer it connected to the internet. jhb019 has chosen the best answer to his/her question.Click here to view the answer that was selected.
I woke up and my computer just refused to connect to internet. My roomates computer connects fine to the same modem (we use adsl). I tried switching cables and ports. The night before, my computer had an unexpected shutdown...
computer suddenly would not acquire internet wired or wireless while at university. Local techies tried to fix but no luck. I'm trying to fix this but nothing has worked yet. Seems to be a problem aquiring an ip address. I've matched all the settings from my other dell laptop which connects no problem.
Well there are 2 PC in my LAN:NBNotebook WiFi connection to my router NETGEAR DGN2200v3 Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1 DSKDesktop Cabled connection to my router NETGEAR DGN2200V3 Windows XP Home Edition 32bit SP3 If from DSK I try to access NB shared folders through network, everything is fine.If from NB I try to access DSK shared folders through network, the following window appears:The strange thing is that this problem seems to occur randomly! Sometimes it occurs, sometimes not (during the same session of usage of NB). This is annoying because usually I need to work with NB on files which are stored in DSK through local network, so if I need to apply a change to a file, sometimes I won't have a chance to do that.
Some minutes ago I configured DSK and NB so that the account for both has the same username and password.When on NB I try to access DSK shared folders, the window I posted above appears, I fill the data but neither this time I have granted access...This is what happens:- I reset NB WiFi connection- Using NB I try to access DSK shared folders --> everything is ok- About 5 minutes passes- Using NB I try to access DSK shared folders --> the authentication window appears, I fill the username and password fields but they won't be recognized
I have a home computer which part of the home's workgroup and I have a office laptop which is part of a domain. Both of these are connected to the home wireless router and I can ping from one to the other via IP only and not by hostname. I have to access DB which is on my home computer (workgroup) from office laptop(domain). How do I achieve this? I search the internet and found we can enable sharing by IP. But my usecase will require access to the workgroup computer using hostname from laptop.
I am using a Windows 7 machine and I'm pretty sure the ethernet cable that I'm using is functional, considering that I'm using it to connect to the Internet right now.I've been trying to get my router going for a while now and I'm pretty sure I've tried everything that the internet has advised. I've screwed around with the card speed, 10 mbps Half Duplex didn't work or anything. I've manually set the IP and related stuff to 192.168.1.x and the works. I've tried to manually run the setup, although that definitely didn't work considering that my computer can't even detect the dang router. I've screwed around with the wiring and restarted my router and modem constantly.
I have a cisco 2811 router doing nat on my home network and it works fine.I've connected a cisco 2621 router to the 2811 both have serial T1 cards, I have enabled IP routing on both and have eigrp 1 process running. I can ping and telnet to each router and they are advertising the networks on each other. when i do a traceroute on the 2621 to an outside address or name example [URL]I get no reply.
So i have set up my Dir-615 router and it worked for about a week perfectly. Then one day i was able to connect to the router, but it says that there is no internet connection. This is untrue since i am able to connect to the internet if i unplug from its WAN port and put it straight into my laptop.
MY ISP is AT&T. I have their Westell DSL modem, with a bridged connection to a Linksys wireless router. The router is connected via ethernet to a dead computer: a 7 year-old Dell desktop that will boot up but shut down right away. I have been able to connect multiple laptops wirelessly to this network. I thought an ethernet connection was required in a home network such as mine? The cable has been plugged into a dead computer for several months and frankly I'd like to get rid of the desktop. What exactly is the ethernet requirement - just to be plugged into a port? Could I theoretically just yank the ethernet card out of the desktop and use it instead of the whole dead system?
Installed E4200 with an iMac running MacOS X Version 10.6.8. Wireless connection works great. Also connected a wireless laptop without a problem. But can't connect a 2nd computer is wired. That is a PC running Vista. I know the wiring is good, because the E4200 is a replacement router in a network that was working fine.
I just connected my WRT120N router to the modem of my Cable provider. Everything seems to work well, however every 1-3 days I cannot access internet anymore with my laptop. When I press "IP address release" button in the router settings everything seems to work fine for again 1-3 days. Is there any way I can prevent this from happening all the time?
