Well, the only way to stop the sappers is to power off the router. just unplug when you are not using it. if you leave the wireless device plugged up, it will be vulnerable to this sort of attack buy users nearby.

Depending on the Router you have, you should be able to go to the config page from your computer.  You have to have it wired to your computer, not wireless, to make the changes.  In the config tab you should see wireless security.  Type the passphrase and save it.  All wireless devices must also use this passphrase to connect.

Not enough range to pick up free internet


The range on your wireless is maybe half a block. Most people that are getting free Internet are actually stealing it from someone that is paying for it by connecting by wireless. In the same time people have started securing their wireless routers by using security like WEP and WPA which require that your wireless device has the proper key to use the network, even the coffee shops and motels that offer free wireless are starting to use this method. If you have internet at your house and a wireless router and can't connect to it then that is because you don't have to correct key installed or your device isn't on the authorized list of MAC addresses. You will have to contact your provider to resolve that.

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

I have a WRT54G ver.6. Was working fine until I went fron DSL to Broadband(cable) Now system won't connect. ???????


Are you attempting to use the device as a router or a switch?  Because if when you switched to cable you got a new router with it this device may be trying to steal this devices capabilities. Im assuming there are five ports, one to plug the Internet into and another to plug in the devices you wish to connect. Try plugging the Internet Ethernet cable (directly from your cable modem) into one of the four device ports and NOT the singular Internet port.

Im just trying to get wifi and interet but i cant get a access point in range wat do i do


Hi :)

In order to obtain wireless internet you need the following

1) Wireless Access Point.
2) A device capable of getting these signals

this is a common mistake when you first obtain wifi. Although the signal is wireless it still has to come from somewhere. Wifi is generally a short range system (I say generally because there is that new "Internet Stick" thing that Rogers? is renting and it is the same wifi you would have @ home but its distributed accross thier towers so you have internet most of the time from anywhere). You still need ot go and get Internet Service into your home, then distribute that signal wirelessly accross the house (in reallity its more than the house the point is the signal is being distributed from somewhere nearby) VIA Wireless Router. Even if you could find an Access Point 90% chances that the system is locked and needs a pw so that people cant just steal another persons signal and bog them down and pay for their internet basically.

Now. If that option isnt suitable for now you can obtain Free Wifi Signal from a number of places

1) Free WiFi is offered @ most public/government buildings (ie Library, Courthouse, Registries, etc etc)

2) Appartment buildings and Condoes are always a good place to check for an unprotected network to piggy back off (this isnt as shady as it sounds if its temporary, infact WiFi systems have backups in them that auto detect and connect to unprotected networks should yours lose signal for any reason)

Note Wi Fi systems signal strength and speed are affected by a couple factors

1) The strength of the incoming internet signal (signal is reduced the longer it flows in the lines to get to you or your pc) (IE long cords between wall and modem or device etc etc etc) Signal strength is also dependant on what you purchase/pay monthly of course (IE DSL Dial Up Or Cable)

2) the quality (usually depends on the price of the unit) of the Router you purchase and its ability to distribute that signal at distance

3) The Wireless Adaptor the device has and its range (depends on price and quality of that unit)

4) Distance from the router is a given but from what ive learned Copper Piping and Copper wires in houses / condos/ apartments tend to block signal strength.

Trying to secure my wireless router


Hi,
The simplest way is to type www.routerlogin.com into your internet browser URL address bar. This will take you to your router's menu. It will ask you for a username and password. It might be set to 'admin' and 'password' as default. It is possible that you can just leave it blank.
Then you can change to whatever you like it when you're there.
To encrypt your wireless connection so that nobody can steal it, you can go to Wireless, then Security and Enable WPA or WEP and it'll prompt you to set a password. Do so and write it down somewhere safe.
Now exit the browser and your Wireless Network is protected.

Good Luck and Happy New Year
