Access your modem using the default gateway. Most of the time it is 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1. Type it in your browser then your modem's firmware would show up. Click on wireless. You have a box on "Enable wireless" Just uncheck it and click save settings then it should all be ready to go. Or better yet, try to disable broadcasting your SSiD so that only you can access the wireless because no one else can see it.

There is only one quick way to turn off your wireless internet access.

Turn off the modem or router if you are using it.

For your information, all home networks have their own access key, without which nobody can access it... it is normally printed at the bottom of the modem. 10 digit encryption key.
Was I helpful enough??

Since you are able to connect using a hardwired connection and you're able to connect wirelessly at the library, that simply means that your computer and your internet browser are fine. where is your wireless computer and your wireless located? are there any possible wireless devices interfering with the wireless signal like chordless phones, cellphone, TVs, radios, microwave oven? are your walls in your house covered with metal plates coz that would really make the signal deteriorate. the settinngs on your wireless router may also need to be reconfigured and boost up the signal of the wireless router.if only i could remotely access your wireless router, I would really walk you thru on what to check on your wireless router

It doesn't matter which port your PC is plugged into, the router will take care of that. You need to turn the wireless system on. You do this from inside the routers configuration pages which you access through your browser. Being a 2wire router, you may have to use the software on the 2wire website. Alternatively, you can try entering ip addresses into the browser address window. Try 198.162.1.1 or 198.162.0.1 etc
Once you access the router, turn wireless on and activate the security. Enter a code key and write it down as you will need to enter the same code into every PC or laptop that you wish to use the wireless connection. Setting up the wireless connection on your laptop is easy, just tell the laptop to search for available networks and when it finds the 2wire router, tell it to connect. It will then ask for the code key. Enter it and all should be well.

I am unable to connect with my wireless laptop


With an Ethernet cable, connect the "wired" port on your laptop to one of the "wired" ports on your router.

Access the router's built-in web-server, and run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", to configure your wireless network.

Call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) -- if they provided the 2WIRE modem to you, they can help you configure it.

Where is the security code to connect to the wireless gateway 2wire?


Usually you can find the security key for the wireless on a 2wire modem/router underneath it there's should be a 10 digit key in there as the wireless security key, if you cannot find it there you need to access the router setup page and it will be better if you can contact 2wire support to walk you through in getting that key from the router page..

Blocking a user from internet


if you log into your router/modem you shuld be able to enable mac filtering add the mac address's you simply want to have access and they will be denied, alternatively you can turn off the dhcp so your router doesnt assign them access - either will work but i prefer the mac filtering.

ipconfig /all in a dos box will display mac address.
