  • Does having a router with your modem make your internet faster?

    Best answer: Having a router and a modem combined into one device doesn't make it faster. In fact since most combo models that are sold are orientated to value customers, they tend to have inferior WIFI capabilities, which will slow you down.

    Best answer: Having a router and a modem combined into one device doesn't make it faster. In fact since most combo models that are sold are orientated to value customers, they tend to have inferior WIFI capabilities, which will slow you down. It's best to buy a modem recommended by your cable company and then buy a WIFI router rated AC1900 or higher for superior performance. Technically you may be able to find a modem\WIFI router combo device that is rated AC1900 or higher, but it's not going to be any faster, it will probably cost you a lot more, and it may not be recommended by your cable operator.

  • My mum cuts my wifi off on all devices through the modem every night, how can i avoid this?

    I am 17 and my mum thinks its appropriate for her to control my wifi access through the modem so it cuts off at 7:30 every night and for two hours during the day. I believe this is absolutely ridiculous and does anybody know how I can bypass this?

  • URGENT One of our neighbors keeps connecting to our onkyo tx nr676 to blast garbage music. It's 12:30 am. Please help me?

    Best answer: If you are using WPA2 encryption on your WiFi, change the pass phrase and pick a good long random sequence of characters including letters, numbers, punctuation and other symbols on the keyboard. Disable WPS and UPnP in the router. On any Windows 10 PCs, disable the stupid facility to tell your contacts the... show more
    Best answer: If you are using WPA2 encryption on your WiFi, change the pass phrase and pick a good long random sequence of characters including letters, numbers, punctuation and other symbols on the keyboard.

    Disable WPS and UPnP in the router.

    On any Windows 10 PCs, disable the stupid facility to tell your contacts the credentials of your WiFi network(s).

    Make sure there are no trojans on your computers that are sending information to the enemy. I count Windows 10 as a potential trojan.

    Check what MAC addresses are connecting to your network. These should be listed in the router's network pages and possibly its log files. The first half of the MAC address will indicate the type of network chip and possibly the type of device that is connecting.

    Use MAC address white list or black list filtering in the router to allow only your devices or block alien devices.

    Turn off the WiFi network during the night. many routers include settings to do this automatically.

    Make sure there is no port forwarding configured in the router that is allowing access that way rather than by WiFi. Also make sure the DMZ and remote management of the router are disabled.

    Is the NR676 controlled using infrared, WiFi or Bluetooth. If it is IR, then it is possible that a neighbour may be triggering your unit unintentionally when they control their unit. If it is Bluetooth, could a second controller be paired with your unit?

    Finally, although I mentioned it first, changing the WiFi pass phrase should be done as a last step if WiFi is the source of the control. However, if a good random pass phrase does not stop the problem, I would be inclined to suspect IR. Bluetooth should not normally be an issue as most systems require authorisation of some sort to allow pairing to take place.

    I hope this helps.

    However, if you are that deetermined, are you talking about an OS password, or one in the BIOS (befoore the boot process even starts)? If it's in the OS, there are boot disks you can DL that will reset it (but be advised if there are any files there encryped to the user account, they most likely will never be accessable again), if it's in before the boot process starts, that can be reset as well, but is likely to involve removing the cover, you will need the exact model to search for, but it's nothing hidden...Normally it just involves shorted two pins together with a jumper, but you need to know what ones, that's why you need the model to find it, they are not all the same.

  • Anyone know of a good WiFi extender is like to recieve WiFi from far away 1/2 mile possibly?

    Best answer: WiFi extenders don't work that way. you have to place them halfway between the two wifi points. also, wifi is not meant to travel so far. it hates walls and there are likely more than a few houses between you and the store. honestly, it is hard just getting a signal between two neighboring houses, much less a... show more

    also, wifi is not meant to travel so far. it hates walls and there are likely more than a few houses between you and the store.
    honestly, it is hard just getting a signal between two neighboring houses, much less a half mile.
    you would need custom antennas both at the shop and your home, preferably mounted on the roofs.

  • Why did chatrooms on the internet die away?

    Best answer: Social Media Sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram have largely replaced much of the chat room requirement. Then Skype and WhatsApp have filled in any gaps that were left.

  • Can I buy an xfinity router and use my dads log in info and still get internet?

    Best answer: No, you cannot purchase another router and just 'hook it up to the cable'. The router has a MAC address, which is registered to your dad's account. AND he lives 30 miles away (I'm assuming in a different town). Even if you took your dad's router to your house and hooked it up, it... show more

    Even if you took your dad's router to your house and hooked it up, it wouldn't work. Comcast servers know where your dad lives.
