have only got one adaptor from dlink router which i use for my desktop and laptop ... its wireless - i tho it was protected but its not .. my sister bf came over with his laptop and he was able to link it up with mine wireless network .. he said i havent protected it at all ..

how do i protect it as i didnt realised some other neighbours might be looking at it .. help! i dont understand what i have to do next ..

I was given this by someone in another forum


Have tried to put this thing on the first paragraph but it says page not connected .. I have no idea what i am doing wrong.with default ip adress.

However I am not 100% sure - it said put a dot on WPA - does that mean after WPA or before WPA. Its not very clear to me. In fact i dont understand anything off this!

1. In your browser, clear it so nothing is there and type click go or whatever it says.

2. When you get to where you put in WPA, there should be a drop down arrow to choose WPA or whatever you want.

3. Then you have to type in a security password or it may say WPA shared key. Here is a site that you can use for that. I use it all the time.

grc.com passwords

4. After that click save.

I have Linksys router and I'm guessing it is probably the same. I think this is what you want, not sure.
