    Hi Bob,

    There is a decent article here - click here

    Check the bit on "Basic Settings You Should Change" first. There is a link on the page.

    Needless to say - don't attempt anything that you don't understand

    Hi Bob

    Some of the "basic" stuff should be possible.

    Which make and model router do you have ?

    Hi Bob,

    Found this basic page .....click here
    Don't change anything yet.

    A few questions:

    Many router login screens have "Admin" as the username and the password.
    Is your username "Admin" ?

    According to this link - your password is on a sticker under the router itself.
    DON'T post this - but is this different from "Admin" ....in other words is it individual to the router and not a general password ?

    When you point the screen curser at the wireless icon [ bottom right ] does this indicate the name of the router or is it something like "Home Network" i.e. not able to identify the router?

    I have a few more questions - but this will do for the moment
