How do i lock my internet connection so others can't use my connection
I see that you want to put Security on your Network Connection.
1. First we need to find out what Default Gateway your Router has, this depends on what Router you have. To find your Default Gateway we need to click on Start then click All Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt, this will show you a black window with a blinking cursor.
2. In Command Prompt type in IPCONFIG then press enter, this should should pull up information showing your IP Address/Subnet Mask/Default Gateway, we need the Default Gateway info only it should look like an IP Address ex. 192.168.2.1
3. Once we have your Routers Default Gateway we will need to open Internet Explorer or any browser that you my have on your computer, type in the Default Gateway on the Address bar then press ENTER, this should prompt you for a user name and password. If you have changed your Routers user name and password please use the User Name and Password that you have created if you haven't changed any thing on your Routers user name and password then you can try admin for the User Name and password for the password or admin and sometimes you can just leave it blank.
4. Once inside the Routers settings page look for wireless then under wireless look for security this should give you the option to create a Network Key in your router, make sure your write down your network key on a piece of paper incase you may forget.
I Hope this will help regarding your Router security question, have a nice day.
