Hi dear

The problem in OS X 10.4.6 - 8 where, despite selection the option "Require password to wake up this computer from sleep or screen saver", you are not prompted for a password when waking up can be solved by resetting you parameter RAM. This is done as follows: 1) reboot while holding down Command-Option-P-R
You will notice that as long as you hold down these 4 keys during reboot the computer will cycle though the initial steps of reboot, e.g. you hear the DC drive calibrate. One it cycled though the RAM is reset.
2) go to System Preferences and select the Security menu. You will notice that the "Require password..." option is not set. Set it and this should solve your problem.

Try and start it in safe mode. Rebbot the computer and as soon as soon as the computer starts to boot hit F8 several times this should bring it up in safe mode. If you get the compputer up in safe mode try to restore to a different date.

Let me know if this helps

What we really need is more information on the router. Do you know how the other computers connect to the wireless? Do you know if you had to have a password in order to connect? If you never did anything to the Linksys router to set it up, you can login to the router by opening Internet Explorer and browsing to 192.168.1.1. It will ask you for a login name and password. By default the name is blank and the password is "admin". If you look at the wireless settings you should be able to see the wireless settings, like the wireless name (again, by default the name is Linksys), what kind (if any) of encryption is used, etc.
