For wireless security:
You need to login to your modem and add security, so that you can connect and your neighbour cannot. Unless you have changed your login details, look at the back or underneath your modem. It should tell you what your defualt login is and how to get to it. You normally access your modem using a web browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox etc.) and typing in the address e.g. 192.158.0.1 in the top/address line.
Then you will be prompted for a username and password (see what the sticker on the modem says, e.g. admin and password.
Once inside that menu, look for WLAN or Wireless settings. You can then setup security e.g. WEP or WPA and some other options. Set the security to WPA and choose a password that you can remember. Once you have chosen Done/Apply/OK or similar, you will probably lose your connection. If you then choose your wireless, you will be prompted to enter a password.

The other alternative is, if you have a desktop connected by ethernet to the modem and don't need wireless, you can go into the same menu and switch wireless off.

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.

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.

Hello! My laptop is not able to connect to my Linksys router.


Make sure that your wireless is not secure or you are entering the right password. Also check to see what channel that your wireless is set on and compare that to your neighbors around you. If you and your neighbor have the same channel number set that is your problem. Your neighbor is over powering your own router.

I have an HP/Compaq 8230 that is 3 1/2 years old. Recently, my wireless has stopped working. "No networks found in range". It is an Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG.


Do a wireless scan and see how many wireless connections are avaiable in your neighbor. If I was a beating men, that your wireless router is sharing a neighbor's wireless channel number.

I cant seem to get my laptop to connect to my network.......it has worked for about a month but for some reason it says its connected but doesnt all me online.


You may have a not very friendly neighbor, who has changed your setup in the router.
But, - you have the router, - what you have to do, is to find the "reset" on the back of the router, press and hold for about 30 seconds, and you have reset it to factory standard.
DO SET THE ADMIN password as the first thing you do, as this is why you neighbor could access your router.
THEN set some kind of security, to keep your neighbor from using your connection....
I will gladly help you with that one to, if you like.

- do vote, as this was helpful :-)
