You should go to settings of your router and password protect your wifi from the settings. What kind of router you have?

Removing suspicious activity from my ip address


From your public address or your wifi router? Public, call your internet provider. From your router change your wireless password, then on your devices. There are ways to get the devices MAC address and block it but that is for advanced users.

I can connect on my wifi, but when I am not home it says disconnected on iPhone app


Is it set up to only connect to your home network? If you're not on a data plan for your mobile, there will not be any internet on your phone until you get home, or if you're in a public wifi open zone.

How to retreve my wifi


Enable the wireless network card on the laptop.


Some laptops use a physical switch on the front or side of the computer to enable and disable the wireless card.


Most newer laptops use a software switch that can be toggled with a couple of keys on the keyboard.


The most common software switch toggle is by pressing the "Fn" key and "F2" at the same times.


Click the wireless icon by the clock in the lower-right corner.

Click on an available wireless hotspot.


Stronger signals are represented with more and longer bars.


Click the "Connect" button.


Enter a password, if required.


Click on Home, Work or Public when the dialog box appears.


Each of these three options represents different security levels.


When connecting to a public Wi-Fi hotspot, always select "Public."


Hope this helps.

I want to buy a wireless network adapter USB. I do not have internet home, but there is a public connection that is a couple hundred feet away from my house that is public because it is a cafe. Can anyone...


A couple of hundred feet away may be too far for a good signal receiption.
You can increase your signal with an aerial.
You may need to go into the cafe or park yourself nexr door to the cafe.
Use Google to see what is available on the Internet.
Here are a few WEB sites for you to look at.

My local public network is asking for a security key number


Probably as is open and with no security some one change the wireless setting adding security to the router, Reset the router to factory settings and add a password to reconfigure the router not to the wireless connections, in that way people can still use the public internet but cant configure the router because dont have the password.

I can get to the login page but I need to set my username and password since I am using an internet connection at a golf community and want to secure my computer. Can you help. shillgolf@gmail.com


To log in a public WIFI you don,t need to log in,since is a public domain.The only thing you need is to secure your connection with :

Here are four quick tips to enjoy the convenience of public Wi-Fi and help to protect your privacy.
1. Use a firewall If your computer uses Windows Vista or Windows XP and you've installed Service Pack 2, you have a built-in firewall that's turned on by default.
You can configure Windows Firewall to provide better protection when you're using a public wireless network.
For more information, see Windows Firewall.
2. Hide your files When you use public Wi-Fi, network encryption is often out of your control.
Check the privacy statement on the network's Web site to learn about the type of encryption they use. (If they don't have a privacy statement, you'd be better off not using the network.)
If you keep personal or financial information on your computer, consider investing in an operating system, such as Windows Vista, that includes the tools to protect your information through encryption.
To learn more, see Encrypt or decrypt a folder or file.
3. Don't type in credit card numbers or passwords These measures provide some protection against casual hackers and identity thieves who prey on wireless networks. But if criminals are determined enough, they will eventually find a way to get around any security system.
If you want to be safe, avoid typing any sensitive information, such as your credit card number or any other financial information, while you use a public wireless network.
icotip.gif Tip: If you must enter credit card numbers while using a public wireless network, make sure there is a locked padlock icon at the bottom right corner of the browser window, and make sure the Web address begins with https: (the "s" stands for secure).
4. Turn off your wireless network when you're not using it If you're not surfing the Internet or sending e-mail, but still using your computer in an area where there is a public wireless network, disable your wireless connection.
If you're using an external Wi-Fi card you can remove it.
If you're using an internal WiFi card, right-click the connection and click Disable.

Compaq evo n610c wireless lan w200 - is network card internal? or do i need to purchase a card to get my computer to work at a wi-fi location...i need to know what i have to do to get internet at other...


The EVO 610 has a built-in modem and a network LAN but no wireless LAN.
If you wish to connect to the Internet at home and elsewhere you have a few options.
You can use a PCMCIA wireless network card or a USB wireless device. These devices will allow you to connect to WiFi places such as Internet cafes or free WiFi locations such as McDonalads, Starbucks and airports etc.
OR
You can use an Internet Service Provider that provides country and or state wide roaming access, and they usually use wireless netword cards that integrate with the mobile (G3) network.

You need to check with various Internet Service Providers to see what they offer, the various plans, costs and also if they offer roaming access.
Be aware that connecting to public WiFi networks can have security issues if you are not protected.
