Wireless Routers

Some problems that are concerning wireless routers are appearing more and more often and so many people have to deal with them all over the world that they are worth mentioning in one place.

1. I forgot the user/password used to access the router; I modified the routers address, what can I do? If you modified the address of the router and now you can not access the configuration page in nay way, since that new address assigned by you is not store in any document and you managed to forget it, or if you have changed the access password for the Admin account and you dont seem to be able to remember it, then you have only one solution. Each router should have a button that can be used to reset it to factory setting. Once that button is pressed, all setting will be erased and go back to default.

2. The router is resetting often. What can be done? This is a rather complex problem. At first, you should see if the router is under attack. Deactivate the ping answer on the outside. Try to reset the router or do a firmware update. If the router in not under attack and the firmware seems to be up to date, then there might be a problem with the power cord.

3. How can a wireless routers firmware be upgraded? This is very simple to do. All that needs to be conducted is to download a new Firmware version from the producers website and not from somewhere else. After you have downloaded the firmware you should make sure the archive is not corrupted for some reason because if the upgrade is not done properly up to the end you can deteriorate the device permanently. If send in warranty, they do not fix problems caused by firmware upgrades gone badly.

4. I can not forward a wireless port. It all depends on the routers user manual. If you can not do it according to those specifications, try allocating static or dynamic IPs.

5. If I dont use the internet for a while, it will disconnect. What can be done? There is an option that fixes this: you can opt in to leave the router connected forever to the internet or to let it disconnect after a while.

6. Am I allowed to share the pay on my internet bill with the neighbors? Usually not, but you must read the signed agreement. Usually you are not allowed to resell part of a service that is meant to be used by a physical person to another person.

7. Can I save the routers setting? Many routers offer this advantage. The setting can be saved in a file on the hard disk. For more details you should refer to the user manual.

Search Engine List with SEO


There are hundreds of books and websites devoted to helping businesses get their web sites on the first page of the search engine’s results page. But what can you believe? When it comes to search engine optimization, Denver businesses know that it’s not about how much you know, but rather taking smaller steps that will generate almost immediate results. You don’t have to be the biggest web site on the internet to get to the top – here’s what you can do now.
For starters, you should recognize the importance of being on the first page of a search engine result listing. While it’s true that some people will go to the second results page, this is generally not the case. When someone has typed in their search term and gotten results, they’re going to choose someone from the first page. So, if you’re not there, you’re not going to get higher traffic numbers. To increase your search engine optimization, Denver businesses should follow these three tips:
1. Do your research – It is in your best interest to make sure that you’re researching your customers to see what kinds of keywords they use when they’re looking up their query. If you fail to do this, you’re not going to be using the best keywords to increase your rankings. Try to use various keyword finders as well as look at what keywords your competitors are using to get a list that’s going to work for you.
2. Focus on one keyword for each page – While it may seem like a good idea to use as many related keywords as possible, focusing on just one per page is what will increase your search engine optimization. Denver businesses will often create a list of keywords and then give them to writers that will write out articles that focus on that keyword, repeating it once a paragraph or so. In doing this, the articles will be seen as relevant to the search engine and thus your site will be ranked higher.
3. Make sure you have a lot of pages on your site – If you only have five pages of SEO articles on your website, that isn’t going to help your search engine optimization. Denver companies will often create over two hundred pages of related content for the site in order to create a site that’s both useful for customers as well as relevant to the search engine.
As a corollary to the idea of adding a lot of pages, you will also want to make sure that you’re adding these pages over a long period of time. This will work to increase your ranking slowly so that you’re not overwhelmed by traffic counts. For smaller businesses, this is the best strategy.
By taking the time to improve your search engine optimization, Denver businesses (as well as other cities) can make sure that they’re not being ‘left behind’ on the second page of search engine results. Even taking the time to follow these three tips will help guarantee that you’re not going to be stuck with low traffic counts.
