Lol whi-fi? You need to read up on WEP (Wired Equivalence Protection) WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) and WPA2 to learn about it. Then you need to login to your router usually using 192.168.0.1 or whatever I.P. (Internet Protocol) Address your router has. Use your default password (provided with your manual) and set a different password after inside. Read your manual to understand where to set your WEP or WPA Passwords. Keep in mind WEP despite the name is not Equivalent to Wired Connections. WEP can be cracked withing 1-2 minutes. WPA and WPA2 can be cracked as well if it is using a PSK Handshake. Do a little homework and read your owners manual. Understand the risk.

No data internet connection


Connecting to the Internet without a Wi-Fi data plan isn't a difficult process even for a novice at utilizing and joining wireless networks. Whether you are looking to join a public Wi-Fi hotspot network or a neighbor's private Wi-Fi network with their permission, get your computer online and browsing the Internet without the use of your own Wi-Fi data plan, saving money in the process. Note these steps to get you connected in just a few minutes.

Move to an area that offers free public Wi-Fi or to an area where you believe you are close enough to pick up a neighbor's Wi-Fi signal. In the latter case, check with your neighbor beforehand to ensure it is allowed that you utilize their Wi-Fi network. Using a private network without permission is illegal. Boot up your laptop. Allow Windows or the Mac operating system to load up fully on the laptop. Click on the wireless icon on your computer's desktop area. In Windows, you will find this icon on the right side of the bottom toolbar. It appears to be a computer monitor icon with small radio waves reaching out of it. Alternatively, on a Mac laptop click on the Wi-Fi icon on the top right toolbar in the desktop area. This icon will look like a set of radio waves extending upward. Look over the list that appears once you click on the wireless icon. This list will present all the wireless network options that are within the range of your laptop. Avoid any that present with a "lock" icon beside them, because these require passwords. If you are looking to join a password-protected network like one offered by a neighbor, request the password ahead of time. In the event of a public network at a local business, a password will not be required. Click on the network you intend to join. Input the appropriate password at this point, if joining a password-protected network. Also, choose the type of security encryption the private Wi-Fi network is using. Your computer will often have this auto-selected, but you may need to select either "WPA" or "WEP" security manually. Click "Enter" on your keyboard. If you do not have the necessary password or are unsure as to the security encryption type, either contact the network administer or click "Cancel" and join a public Wi-Fi network. Allow several moments for your computer to join the network. You will receive a notification on your Windows or Mac toolbar when it does. Launch your Internet browser of choice and begin utilizing the Internet without having to rely on your own Wi-Fi data plan

Neighbors hve wifi but wont give me the code. Is there a code that i can use to gwt pass it.


No there is only the password they set. I advise getting your own wi fi because they are paying for theirs and they dont want to give it away for free. Plus that is illegal if you break into their wi fi. Sorry but you will have to get your own wi fi.

I have several neighbors using my 2wire100 Gateway modem from their homes. This is slowing my internet experience and sometimes locks me up on the internet. How can I put a security password on this...


You have to log on at the router's settings page and go under wi-fi (or wireless) section. Here locate the security tab, enable it and set a password for this connection. I suggest you when doing all the above settings to be connected with cable connection. This is to prevent you to be locked out of your wi-fi in case of an error at password.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
