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.

for your phone to use your connection and to stop people printing you would be best to change the WPA/WEP key. If your security is set to WEP I would strongly reccomend you change to WPA2

My neighbor is connecting to my router,Iwould like to stop him

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. 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.

Password on wireless router

OK, You listed this under a print server router. I looked up the DP 300 print Server router and restricting access to the router is not an option. If you are actually talking about your Wireless router for your home network you need to look in the user manual or access the router and go through the configuration pages for the wireless settings and set Security to on and then Select either WEP or WPA as the security format, which ever is supported by your computer, then enter a Security Key. The Key can be anything as long as all devices that are going to use the wireless have that same key entered with the same security method selected. Your user manual should explain better where these option are located.

I want to stop my neighbors from using my router/modem, can you help me?


All you need to do is to to enable the router security, which will enable you to add a password.

HERE is how you do it:
Type (this will get you in your router) and once you're in, go to the "Security" tab or option and click on WEP or WPA, select the encryption, choose a password and click save or apply.

Hope this can be of help.

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

Neighbors can use our connection to log on to laptop

Consult your users manual for setting up either MAC Address Filtering, which will allow you to enter the physical addresses of your devices (unique like a fingerprint.)


Enabling Wireless Encryption (Wireless Security), which would require you to enter a pass code or pass phrase in order to access your networks assets.

Wireless connection stopped working

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 to.

- do vote, as this IS helpful :-)
