Depends which router it is. Security settings are usually in the router software that comes with it.
You may need to enable wep or better wpa.
Read you instruction book on how to access the routers settings.
It's usually a case of typing an ip address in the address bar of Internet explorer to access them. But if you don't have the manual that comes with it you should find it on the net by typing the make and model number followed by the word manual or user manual in google.

How can I remove my neighbor from my network


Easiest thing to do, Change the password to your router. Once this is done, it will prevent your neighbor from any further access to your router and of course prevent internet access. Most all routers are simply a local web address for access. Example: 192.168.1.1 typed inside a browser address pane will take you inside the router. Check your router for setup procedures.

Have a great night..

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.

Im having troubles with a lodger who cant mind his own business, he cannot connect to the wireless but can connect to the LAN, is there any way to prevent this without physically harming the router?


you want to prevent him from accessing the LAN? I will need to know more information about the dynamics of this LAN. How many users? Is it encrypted? Are you using MAC filtering? Where is LAN connection...at back of router or cat5 runs to wallplates in rooms. Give me more information and yes, you can keep anyone and everyone off your network or limited access. $75.00 hour I get to do this normally.

Can I connect my ps3 to the internet using a secured connection from my neighbor with no router?


If you mean, can you use your neighbor's wireless with your PS3, then yes. Potentially. First, you'll want to have the permission of your neighbor, for legal reasons. Not to mention if their wireless is Secured, your going to need their assistance in connecting the PS3 to that router. If you have their blessing, then just follow the steps on the PS3 to set up a connection, and have your neighbor in the room or on the phone to give you the information when you need it.

If your trying to get access without them knowing, don't bother. If the connection is secure, your gonna waste a lot of time for nothing.

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.

Laptop doesnot recognise my router Desktop works fine connection is from cable modem to router. rouer to desktop.


Try changing channels on the wireless tab in the router. On most routers the default wireless channel number is 6 and you and your neighbor could be sharing tha number. Go to channel that is avaiable, I myself had that trouble myself.

I had channel 11 set and someone got the internet and mine was having trouble so I done a scan and found 3 was open and I have no problem since.

Picking up another network?


Do you perhaps have both Windows Wireless Zero Configuration and the
wireless configuration utility that is supplied by the mfr of your
computer's wireless interface running at the same time?

there are many cases of people accidentally connecting to the wrong network because both neighbors used default settings on their equipment. It is a very good idea to secure your network, both to discourage the casual wardriver (who will likely just move to an unsecured system) and to prevent accidental use by a neighbor

Also, make sure that you set your network as the default and disable the "automatically connect to non preffered networks" (or something worded similar to that.

Hope this is helpful.

Our Powerline devices have security that will prevent anyone from seeing your Powerline network. Using the utility provided with the device, you can encrypt all data transfers over powerline to 56 bit DES.
