Wanted in wireless router

by iamonk / May 30, 2010 3:25 AM PDT

Have to replace my old wireless Belkin router that died. Seems new router specs don't list what I need.. Looking for a router that will allow mac control for internet access but still allow user to access network equipment like printer and network drives. Have tried using ip control but it is all or nothing and grandchildren are savy enough to change ip.. Trying to get them to concentrate on homework.. I have voip so compatability with this is necessary and 1 gig port speed would be frostng on the cake!!

Does that work?

Given tools like SMAC and MAC ADDRESS CHANGERS how would that fix what turned out to be no security?

For the house mac control is good and simple and the grandchildren are not savy enough to know about the tools you mention.. Maybe when they are older but mac control was simple and effective with our past router.. Maybe you can offer another method to do what we require?

Look at PARENTAL CONTROL software. We have a netgear and I use its PARENTAL CONTROL feature. But I leave it to you to see if there is Apple versions of the bypass software (sorry but I leave that part of the research to you.)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
