Disable internet access
Access your router Setup page
Open internet explorer
go to http://192.168.1.1 (default)
username: admin (default)
password: "leave it blank" (default)
Go to Security
go to Filter
if you know that Ipaddress of the computer you want to block for example 192.168.1.10
You can create up to five different IP Address Range filters
Users who have filtered IP addresses will not be able to
access the Internet at all If you only want to filter one IP
address instead of a range of IP addresses, enter the same
value into both fields For instance, if you wish to filter the
PC with the IP address of 192 168 1 5, enter 5 into both
fields on one line: 192 168 1 5 ~ 192 168 1 5
if you know the MAC address of the computer click the Edit MAC Filter Setting and input the MAC address you want to block.
blocking by MAC address is the most effective solution to block a computer... while blocking by ip address will be easily bypass by changing the ip add of the pc
then saved your settings and reboot..

Roku 1 setup
There are several factors that will affect or can cause problems in connecting your Roku to your Router.
If you're getting an error message on Roku like 014, 011, make sure to indicate it in your response. Normally, if you're getting 014 message, you can follow these steps:
. A simple power cycle resolves most of the issues. To perform a power cycle, please follow the instructions below:
1. Unplug the power cables from the modem, router and the Roku player.
2. Connect the power cable to the modem (after a minute). Once all the lights on the modem are lit, plug in
the power cable to the router and then to the Roku player.
3. Go to "Settings" and redo the complete Roku setup.
If the issue continues to occur, please try the channel 1 or 3. Should it persist, you may reset the Roku
player. Here is how:
On the back or bottom of the Roku unit, you should find a recessed little hole.
- Use a pin or paperclip to press and hold the button for 30 seconds (please ensure that the power light
blinks while you are holding it down).
The Roku device will reset to default and be ready for setup again.
If the problem continues, please reflash the software via the secret screen:
1. Press the "Home" button for 5 times.
2. Press the "Forward" button for 3 times.
3. Press the "Rewind" button twice.
4. Choose Update Software and the Roku player will then restart.
You can comment your serial number or the error message that you're getting. If your getting 011, just power cycle your entire network. Also, please make sure that you're not connecting the Roku to a Guest network. The speed of your connection matters as well. It should be atleast 1.5mbps.

How do i hook up
If you already have a cable router, then you don't want to use a wireless router. You will want to use a wireless access point instead.
The reason for this is that anything plugged-in to your cable router will not be able to access anything connected to the wireless router due to the NAT firewall in the wireless router.
If the wireless router has the option to make it a "Gateway", then that will fix this issue; otherwise, take the router back and buy a wireless access point instead.
As for how you hook up the wireless router to the cable router, you have to unplug the power cord of the cable router for about 15 minutes before hooking the Ethernet jack from it to the wireless router.
Once the 15 minutes have passed, you then can plug the Ethernet cable from the wireless router "WAN" port into an Ethernet port on the cable router and then plug-in the power cord of the cable router.
Once the cable router is finished syncing-up, the cable router should provide an IP address to the wireless router.
If you really have a cable modem instead of a cable router, then you won't have to put the wireless router into gateway mode.

Adding a printer
Unfortunately this model of router has no support for directly connecting anything other than a printer that already supports Ethernet.
Since that's not the case with most consumer printers you will need to buy a "Print Server" These are made by all the main manufacturers, and come with a collection of interfaces, USB / Parallel of the printer, and Ethernet or WiFi of the network side.
They all pretty much do the same thing so go for one that meets your needs.
If my advices was at least helpful, please vote for me!
