Hey,

Im not sure if this is the right forum or if anyone can help me but I am wondering how I would go about securing my wireless signal so only myself and my flatmate can use it.

I have a Trendnet router.

Cheers

The article referenced in the last post in the following thread has a good description of the changes you should make. The MAC Address Filtering, in particular, limits access to your wireless connection to only those specific computers you designate; this is true even if someone (who you do not want using your wireless network) knows the SSID, encryption type, encryption key, etc.:

Check your router manual to determine how to enter the router's setup pages. The manual for one Trendnet router I saw showed a default URL of http://192.168.1.1, default user name of admin, and default password of admin. The manual for your particular router should also describe how to set the various items mentioned in the article on wireless security.
