    can anyone tell me how to unblock an internet connection to a single computer that was blocked on an inhouse network by the previous computer repairman? the system has a linksys router. this computer has the internet blocked at any network outlet you connect it to throughout the network system. if other computers are put on the same connection the internet will work. i'm trying to figure out if the problem is a setting made in the individual computer or could be set at the router itself. if it is set at the router to block that computer how do you get to the settings for this particular router? this was set in the past to block this one computer on our network so i know it was done intentionally.

    You must be talking about the DMZ Zone in a linksys router. It is basically a passthrough for one computer throught the router while the others are behind the router? Is that what you mean?

    router

    no not the dmz i'm familiar with that. is there a way to get to the router settings for a linksys router from your browser. i have a router on my home computer and i enter an address and it puts me in all the router settings but i dont know what it would be for this type of router.

    You might PM a mod and ask them to move this thread to networking... you'd probably get more help there. :)

    Linksys routers do have an admin config that can be reached through the browser. I believe that it's 192.168.1.1, so you might give that a try.


    Edit: j79zlr you beat me to it! ;)

    yeah use 192.168.1.1 default username is Admin default password is Admin ;)

    from what i understand the network works, but it was setup to block da net from specific pc's? on my linksys router i would use:

    http://192.168.1.1/Internet_Access.htm

    can block a specific i.p/mac address from using the internet, i bet thats what the repair guy did :cool:

    quick screenshot of a blank restriction. i think you will find the pc in question is listed with deny all next to it :)

    sounds like the MAC address is being denied access.

    Sounds like it, but I haven't seen anywhere that I can make a MAC address entry for machines that are connected through cable. I think MAC address entries can only be made for wireless connections for added security.

    no you can restrict MAC addresses in a linksys router for both wired and wireless.... Depends on what type of router but you can also restrict the times a computer on a network can have internet access.
