Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
Neighbors are using my wireless system to access the net. i can't get on because of all the computers. how do i protect my system
Admin is the password and there is no USERNAME! Just letting you know you had it backwards.

This proccess is actually very simple especially with a Linksys router.
You will need to open Internet Explorer and in the bar where you normally type a website address type 192.168.1.1 and click enter.
A little box will open up asking for a username and password, the username is admin and there is no password.
All you need to do now is go to Wireless > Wireless Security and put in a pass phrase and a WEP key will be automatically generated for you.
Below is a link to the instructions at Linksys, I have selected version 5 of your router, the Wireless security settings are the same for all Linksys routers so the version shouldn't matter.
I have posted the link as I think it will be easier for you to download the instructions and follow them rather that trying to refer back here while you do the setup.
Click on user guide.

One way of doing so is by entering your routers ip address into the address bar when you open up your web browser. usually its something like 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 from there you'll see a whole slew of options and what not . but what your looking for is a wifi area where you can set yourself a password. this way your neighbors can't use your internet and you can use all your bandwidth. i cant give you much more information than that because i dont know what router your using. otherwise i could give you a full on tutorial on how to fix this problem. also generating a WEP key is ideal too usually its a 18-27 randomly generated code that you can program into your wifi for ultimate security but remember you'll have to write it down so you dont forget. also after you set up your password for the internet you can set your browser or network to identify the password directly from your computer so it doesn't just give out free bandwidth.
well hope this helps.
