You can enable different type of wireless security so you can make sure that only your laptop can use the wireless network, the first thing that you can do is to enable WPA security which is one of the highest wireless security that is use now, you can also enable MAC filtering and just set to the router that only your laptop will be able to use the wireless internet....

If you want to change the router log in password then you can go to Administration tab and change the log in password for router setup page.
IF you want to change the wireless network security key WEP / WPA then you can change the wireless settings.

My iphone 3gs cannot connect to wifi network at home. i am using linksys wrt100 wireless router.


A wireless client has to support WPS ( wi-fi protected service) function in order to use to add the client to your WPS enabled Wireless Router. check the iphone user manual of your wireless client to see whether it supports the WPS function. If your wireless client does not support the WPS function, you have to configure your wireless client manually so it has the same SSID and wireless security settings, you could also go into the advanced wireless settings and enable WPS ( push and connect ) if your router has this option this is sort of specifically for things like mobile/cellular phones and ipods...hope this helps please vote thanks

I have a new laptop and am unable to access wireless with the linksys router ( it worked on my old pc, before it died) The infor on my router reads: linksys wrt100 range plus wireless router


Check if the wireless security is ON. If yes, then you will need to know the wireless network key.

To check the settings on the router on a connected computer, use a web browser and in the address bar type: 192.168.1.1.

By default leave the username blank, then the password is admin.

Go to Wireless, take note of the SSID.

Then go to Wireless security, copy the pre-shared key/ wireless network key.

On your new laptop, view the available networks, you should see your SSID. It will prompt you to enter the network key, just type the wireless network key.

I hope this helps!

Unable to log on to network with Apple Laptop


The type of computer doesn't matter, as the protocols are the same. Check your router's dhcp settings, as you may have it set to allow too few IPs to be distributed.
