    D link wireless router

    I think someone may be trying to use my wireless router to access
    Usenet.

    I have been getting 502 errors when I try to access Usenet using
    Agent.

    Charter is my ISP and they said to reset my router.

    I pressed the wireless reset button on the front and pressed the reset
    button in the back.

    I still get a 502 error.

    Can I try something else?

    Thanks

    Unplug it from power for a few minutes. Will cause a power-on reset.
    Standard "remedy" which may or may not help.

    Does you Dlink wireless router have a model number? You'll find it on
    the front panel or the serial number tag. Extra credit for the
    hardware version number found on the serial number tag (unless it's v1
    where it's not mentioned).

    If your unspecified model router supports WPA or WPA2 encryption,
    please use it. That is usually sufficient to keep hackers like me out
    of your system.

    That would be Forte Agent. Any particular version? Are you
    connecting to multiple NNTP hosts? Error 502 in NNTP means you're
    trying to connect to too many hosts or run too many parallel streams
    at the same time. It can also result in an authentication error when
    one of the streams is trying to login to a host and fails. It's all
    in the FAQ:

    Is Charter still in business? They file for Chapter 11 protection in
    late March.

    Lovely. You're probably now set to the default setting of your
    unspecified model Dlink router. That means you have a wide open
    wireless router which anyone in the neighborhood can use. You might
    want to spend some time reading the manual and learning how to setup
    the router. Also, how to save and restore the settings after support
    tells you to do something ridiculous.

    >I still get a 502 error.


    Well, at least it's consistent.

    >Can I try something else?


    Sure. Burnt offerings, human sacrifice, invocation of the ancestral
    spirits, fervent prayer, flagellation, and purchasing a replacement
    router have all been know to work in the past. However, I don't think
    these will do as much as a Google search for "agent 502 error" which
    found the answer in a few seconds.

    Seeing that you have pressed the reset button, get out your installation
    manual and disk and treat this as a new installation of your router. You
    have reset your router back to factory defaults and have most likely wiped
    out your network protection from intruders.
