You need to turn on password based encryption (aka security) that will turn your unsecured wireless network into a secured one.
open a browser window and then type or and enter your router settings. change settings including password. unless you've set it up differently and actually have a username and password, leave the username space blank and use "admin" as the password. that's often the default password on a linksys. linksys has a great support page. they have the drivers, manuals, the works.
your specific page for the drivers and the manual for your router which includes specific info including password, setup procedures, explanation of the various settings, how to do a hard factory reset, etc. is here - click on the download button below the picture

I need help in Groupon, I am using ShipStation and I cant retrieve my orders due to them being marked as "exported". How come they are being marked as exported when I'm not exporting them?

exported is a term used by the company that exports items
to stop confusion they use the single term export as meaning sent or dispatched as they can be sent or dispatched outside the country where they are exported

Why Is my NEC SV8100 system not accepting calls from my other sites but will accept calls from outside?

So much of our modern communications is now VOIP, uses the internet to complete your call. Problem is internet gets slow, or there's 10 different places where voip settings can get messed up and you need a certified service tech to track this down. Even having normal landlines may not help if calls your other offices are routed only over VoIP.

Condensation on underside of bitumen corrugated roof, how can you fix this ?

Condensation occurs when warm, moist air comes in contact with cold surfaces. You are probably heating the space with the roof and the cold air outside is causing the condensation. Insulating the roof is the only way to stop it, other than ensuring the inside and outside temperatures are the same.

I can't connect to internet explorer

Try another Web Browser like Firefox or Mozilla to see if you can browse the web. You have to use another pc to download the firefox/mozilla browser and install it on your non-working pc.

If other browser works, then open up Internet Explorer and click on Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Reset and click OK/Apply. If that does not work, download IE browser again from another pc and install it on the non-working pc.

If other web browser does not work, verify that you can ping outside and get a reply. Click Start/ click Run and type cmd and press enter. Type ping and press enter. You will get a reply if you have internet connection. If you do not get a reply when you ping and other computer connects to the internet, scan your PC for malwares.

Yes well IF you use two network cards, a WiFi Adapter & an Ethernet Adapter, you can do this, now with a WiFi adapter, as you say, What you do is connect to the internet on the PC, and "Share" the internet connection via the WiFi.

So setup is simple, using the manufacturers DVD install the WiFi. card, then, Set it up as you wish, the PC's that connect should be in the same Workgroup, have sharing enabled and be passworded too then as said connect to the Internet and the "Other" pc's will be able to "Burrow" out through you Internet, through the ADSL Modem attached to the "Main" PC. Usually via the Ethernet port. You still need to set up an SSID and use a WAP/WEP key for security. on the WiFi card.

My wireless internet stopped working on my acer 6930?

If you cannot locate it out the outside of the laptop or verify it is either on or off by use of the LED displays, try to unplug your wireless router for 30 seconds to 1 minute and then plug it back in, this resets your router for a much stronger signal. Hope this helps

You have to have this in your plan. You must call your carrier and establish an internet plan. Sounds stupid but just another way for them to make money. Let me know how it goes.
