  • Hi,

    Is it ok to ask a question about onecare networking, even if I don't currently have onecare installed?

  • The supported routers only matter if you want One Care to configure the wireless security. If you configure the wireless security manually I think any router will do. One Care does not control the router in any way, it will just configure wireless security if not already configured using a supported router. One Care does not monitor network activity other than block/allow in the firewall but it does monitor the security status of the computers in your One Care Circle. If your wireless network is already secured One Care should not ask to change your key code.

  • I have been reading the onecare forums, and am interested in a couple of things. I can't use onecare because your list of routers doesn't include mine. But I was curious. Why does onecare control the router, as apposed to monitering the general network and network activity?  Also, why does it need to change the original language of the network key to code?
