Network security is perhaps one of the most important security considerations of computing. We conduct extensive research in this area and provide you a condensed version of our useful sites list. Below are only a few quality PC and networking sites.
 
Webroot.com   "Protect your small business network from spyware."  We found the poducts of this vender easy to use and helpful.  They identified and removed spyware that three other venders (not listed on our site) could not find or remove.
 
Microsoft  They committed extensive resources to enhancing the security of their products and have developed an excellent resource page. You'll find both Free and Paid solutions.
 

Use these steps to setup a 2Wire 1800HG Gateway for Internet Connection Sharing with a cell phone, cable modem, or dial-up connection to the internet.

WARNING
Modifying the settings as show below can impact the ability of computers on the local network to access your broadband connection. Modifications may also affect broadband-enabled applications and services running on the local network.

  1. Use your cell phone or dial-up to connect your first computer to the Internet
  2. Establish your home network so that all computers you have are on the network.
  3. Access your 2Wire Gateway by entering the gateway location (mine is currently set to 192.168.0.2) into the address bar of your browser.  You may need to enter 172.16.0.0.
  4. Click the "Home Network" Icon and click the "Advanced Settings" option.  Enter your password.
  5. Select the "Configure manually" option and enter 192.168.1.254 in the Router Address field.
  6. Enter 255.255.255.0 in the Subnet mask field.
  7. Remove the check from the "Enable DHCP" option.

Save your changes.

To finish, you may need to follow these steps as found on "Freedom By Degrees » Using the HomePortal 1000SW" available at http://www.obrador.com/journal/index.php?p=5 as of May 5, 2007.

Wrap Up
Your network should be configured correctly now. However, you will need to renew the IP address of each of the client computers. This can be done either at a command prompt with the “ipconfig /renew” command or with the “Repair” button on the Local Area Connection Status dialog. (Open the dialog by clicking on the appropriate “Local Area Connection” item in the Network Connections Explorer window. The “Repair” button is on the “Support” tab.)
