Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
If I disable the ssid boadcasting does that keep others from using my connection. And if it does, why did I lose my internet connection when I did? If not, how do I secure it? I can't see anything plain enough on the linksys site that says it will lock my router if I do it
Since you disabled the SSID Broadcast, you would need to tell you OS how to find the connection. Go to the properties of the Wireless connection in the Control Panel and add the connection there.
To secure the wireless go to 192.168.1.1
log into the router, the default password is admin. go to wireless then security. set the WEP or WPA there.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Select your Wireless Network Name or SSID then click Connect.
NOTE: If the wireless network name or your SSID is not listed, the SSID Broadcast on the router might be disabled. For instructions on how to connect to the wireless network with the SSID broadcast being disabled, click here.
If the computer is not detecting any signal or is not seeing any wireless network, change the channel of the router. For instructions, click here.
If WEP/WPA is enabled on the router:
Enter your wireless network WEP/WPA Key on the field provided then click Connect.
NOTE: To learn more about WEP/WPA and other Wireless Settings, click here.
NOTE: Make sure Display characters is checked, to display the WEP/WPA key used by the router. You can get the passphrase or network key from the encryption that has been generated (if using WEP network security) from the router's web-based setup page. If you're using WPA network security, the network key is the key for passphrase.
Make sure you enter the wireless network's WEP or WPA key not the Passphrase.
It is also possible to make a wireless
connection even if the wireless security is disabled on your router. If
you don't see any network SSID from your network list, make sure your wireless adapter/device is ON and your router is in good condition. If your router shows any unstable occurrence, click here.
