I cannot get password set up to keep unwanted
Please turn off the "broadcast" feature of your Linksys router. This will turn off the "advertising" your router is currently doing, allowing your neighbors to find your network.
Next, you can set your router to allow only certain MAC address devices to use its features. You will need to find out the MAC address for each of your devices.
Next, you will have to setup a password situation to allow the logon. Currently, your scheme is not working. I'm not sure why.
I use Network Magic for my network management duties. It is a free download and eval period after which Cisco (maker of Linksys) would like for you to purchase a license. After the free eval period, Cisco allows you to continue to use the program but not all features unless you pay. I use the paid pro version and I love it.
NM will track intruders, help you share resources, repair broken connections and many other tasks.
P.S. There are no intruders in a wired system! If you can use a wire, instead of wireless, you will not only be more secure but faster as well.
I hope this information helps you ... Thanks for posting your Q at FixYa.com
