Doing this is a little bit complicated if you do not know how to manage a wireless router. I strongly suggest that you contact your Internet provider if they are the one who installed it for you or you can contact the manufacturer for live technical support.

Anyways here's the step on how to access your wireless router. Normally wireless device has security features. You can setup security features such as client restrictions, MAC address
filtering, WEP, and WPA. For home use, you can use the WEP feature.

You can set up the Router’s advanced functions easily through your web browser, without having to install additional software onto the computer. There are no disks to install or keep track of and, best of all, you can make changes and perform setup functions from any computer on the network quickly and easily.

You can download this manual first for instructions. Read andunderstand before you configure. Check if you have the same model. Butmost likely, it's the same GUI base.

Go to page 53

Using your Internet browser, you can access the Router’s Web-Based Advanced User Interface. In your browser, type “” (you do not need to type in anything else such as “http://” or “www”). Then press the “Enter” key.

Note: To configure a wireless, I suggest that you need to use a cable that came with your wireless router so that you won't get disconnected after you have configure it.

WARNING: If you are configuring the Wireless G Router or access point from a computer with a wireless client, you will need to ensure that security is turned ON for this wireless client. If this is not done, your client will lose its wireless connection.

Next window will require a password. Before you can change any setting, you need to log in with a password. I you have not yet set a custom password, then leave this field blank and click submit.

Click on security on the left hand side under the wireless option.
Check manual for instructions under page 53.

SOURCE: How do I secure my

you would need to access the router via a browser. the address for accessing is normal on the underside of the unit. you will need to use the standard user and password name (normally admin admin) or written in the manual/underside. then open the wireless security. select WPA and write a password of suitable length thats easily rememberable. apply the option.

on your pc now open the wireless access point list. (using xp here) on the left there is a setting with a spanner and red. click that. it will list previously accessed wireless networks (might be on a different tab but you have opened the right box). the best way is to delete the access point that is yours then reconnect, or you can change the settings, clicking WPA and typing in the pass. i prefer to delete as it asks for the password twice, making sure its right in both cases. (the passwords are normally long so its easy to catch the wrong key when typing it in, using the other way i get annoyed if i've mistyped cos i have to open it all up again!!)

Remove the neighbor's network from the preferred network list.
add your own network in the list. If your router is old router then upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.

It appears that your neighbour has an unprotected wireless router setup for you (and anyone else) to connect into his router and get onto the Internet. You should suggest to him to secure his wireless router.

To connect into your own wireless router, you need to configure the wireless card with your router's wireless configuration settings, eg.the SSID and encryption settings. Check your router manual on how to configure the router or go to the Belkin WEB site to download this info.
You can also connect to the Internet by using a LAN cable and plug it into the Belkin router.

Security when using wireless router

You'll need to log into your router to set up a wireless access code. If you still ahve the users manual, use that as a guide, and you'll need it for the IP address that will allow you to connect to the router. It's a string of numbers such as that you'll put into your address bar in your web browser. You'll then be promted for the routers default user name and password, which should also be in your users manual.
