Is there a way to lock the router to certain computers only? My threshold keeps going over and I'm not even on the computer. There are 2 in my house that use the router but neither of us hardly use it.

Re: stop other from stealing internet
Within the router's web based utilities, you can enable MAC filtering. Allow your router to search for the computers that are using your wireless network and only allow the MAC addresses of the computers that are yours. All others that do not have your permission (on the filtering list) can't access your network.

To restore it to the factory settings press a paperclip into the hole marked "reset" for 5-10 seconds. Do that wile the router is on. Then if you need to set a special password you can connect to it and change the password.
To change the password connect to your router by going to your browser on your computer after connecting to your router. The default address for belkin is usually "192.168.2.1" for login its either "admin" or just left blank. there shouldn't be any password. After you login you can go through the settings and change your wifi name and password. Most routers also have many other security options like only allowing certain computers on that you add their mac addresses. Hope this helped. If you need more help just leave a comment.
You need to encrypt your wireless router. Connect a LAN cable from Belkin to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open a browser on your laptop/computer and enter the Belkin's configuration URL. http://192.168.2.1 The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password. You can now configure the wireless settings to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings.

hi! check the settings of your router, some routers have a settings that if it is idle for a certain period of time it will auto disco.. disable this option and if this problem wont fix, try to download the firmware of your router there is a possibility that the firmware of this router still have bug and ur still using the default firmware since u bought it..
log-in to your router,go to access restrictions....status..click enable....click on Edit List of PCs......enter your son MAC address or his IP address.....save settings.....and after that you just have to set the days and hours when he could go on-line
