What should I do if I suspect that our system is compromised? What do you think is the best security perimeter to protect a network?

By system, do you mean network or computer? For a network, you'll want to use WPA2 security with a strong password. For computer, you'll want a good antivirus. If you think your computer is infected, you'll want to scan with malware or virus removal tools. For a network, you will want to change your password for the network and possibly reset your router. There are other steps you can do to protect your network and connected computers.

Sorry to butt in, but i am right now looking into making our network more secure, and resetting the router sounds like an excellent idea, but how do you do it? 

 

(Also, do you need the paperwork you are given by the tech guy when he installed everything? Because I misplaced that.)

cooljay, go ahead and post another forum thread in the networking section. It makes everything easier to keep track of. Thanks!
