You need to encrypt your wireless signal. Here are some instructions for getting in to your router's control panel.

Once you manage to log in, find the firewall region or wireless security region. Make sure to encrypt your wireless connection with the WPA-PSK authentication method using the TKIP encryption. Make sure to write down your pass-phrase, as you will need it to connect to your wireless connection.

How do I prevent my neighbor from using my wireless router?


If you do not have any wireless network security enabled on the router, your neighbor can see this SSID and connect to the network without authorization. While this is generally frowned upon as being unethical, it is technically not illegal as you have "made the network available" by failing to secure it. The easiest way to secure the network is through the use of a WEP key or a WPA pass-phrase. WEP keys are generally 5, 10, 13 or 26 randomly generated characters long. WPA pass-phrases are just that - a phrase such as "The sun is yellow". Either method will prevent unauthorized users from accessing your network. Only those individuals who possess the key or pass-phrase are granted access.

These options is located under the Wireless > Wireless Security tabs from within the router administration.After login you can change the password.

Neighbors I'm insulted


Do you mean your neighbours are using your wi-fi signal for free.
If they are then you need to secure you network.
You need to go in to your router's settings and create a wep key or wpa key in the Wireless security section that only you will know.

How can I be sure my linksys security is up to date without the original disc that came with the router? I am trying to be sure that my linksys is not an open gateway for neighbors to steal access from...


Hi,
If you want to make sure that the signal from your router is secured, the only way you need to do about that is to put in a password or passphrase before connecting to the wireless connection. that is the security the router can give you. unless they know the code. they wont be able to connect to your router freely. and about the updates on the linksys, it is ok not to update at this point. and even if you dont have your disc. the router will still work. the disc only give you a software for the router to connect automatically. while windows can already give you that option.

Hope this helps. thank you for using Fixya,

I need to put a pass code on my router so neighbors are not using my internet can you help me


This isn't too hard if you take it one step at a time. .
  1. First, get your user guide or download it from here.
  2. Log on to your router per the instructions on page 14 with "Contacting your Router"
  3. Skip to page 16 and perform step 1
  4. Click on SECURITY and skip to page 19.
  5. To keep this easy, choose WEP, Key 1, and generate the key.
  6. WRITE DOWN KEY #1 as you will need this when you connect your PC. Click APPLY.
. Your router is now secure. When you try to connect your wireless PC it shoud now bring up the security screen. Change the security scheme to WEP, key #1 and type in the code from step 6. . Good luck!

I need to set up a security code for my Linksys wireless router WRT54G V5?


You don't really "NEED" one, but having one blocks out intruders/hackers who are trying to leech (steal) free internet around the area which they are at. Set up a Security code with AlphaNumerics (WonDerFul05 or something like that, but write it down so you wont forget it).

Good luck and Rate my answer.

How do i block someone from illegally stealing my wireless intern


Hello,

You have two options to stop someone from stealing your wireles connection.

The first is to use a more secure encryption.
Use WPA2 personnal with AES encryption.
You can set this security mode by logging on to your router and changinhg the wireless security.

The next solution is to turn on MAC filtering and make sure her computer is not listed as a safe MAC address.
This is also turned on from the router.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Pat

Neighbors stealing internet access


It's no problem all you need to do is access the administration page of the wireless router and setup security. Depending on what type of device you have there are several options. The most basic security is fine and you will need to create a passcode so that the PC's you want to access then internet will work. Then when security is setup you type the access codes in your PCs and you are good to go. I know this is very generic but I don't know which router you have. I can be more specific if you need, just let me know. Usually you access the admin page by the IP address of the router entered in Internet browser then it will ask for user and pass. ( if I know the model I might be able to tell you that as well)

Hope this starts the process for you, just send me comments if you need specifics

Neighbors can use our connection to log on to laptop


Consult your users manual for setting up either MAC Address Filtering, which will allow you to enter the physical addresses of your devices (unique like a fingerprint.)

AND/OR

Enabling Wireless Encryption (Wireless Security), which would require you to enter a pass code or pass phrase in order to access your networks assets.
