I have BT voyager 22100 wireless router and it is
working fine.
Can anyone help me to make it secure network so that hacknig from the outside the house would be impossicle?

Sorry about the mistake - it is BT Voyager 2100 and not 22100.

Postie24's advice is correct , but make sure your wireless adapter can also handle WPA as well , don't bother turning the SSID off , it makes no difference but can affect connectivity , just rename it so no-one knows what make router it is .

Hello Ashley and Postie24, thank you very much
for the help.
A friend has BT Voyager 2110 wireless router.
Can you please state for encryption procedure for 2110 ? Regarding WPA and SSID what are the best
course to take.

If your adapter supports it , then for encryption use WPA , much safer than WEP , WEP is a static encryption , WPA changes every so often so it can't be packet sniffed . As long as you change the SSID from default ( Voyager ???? ) to something that will identify it to you , don't bother hiding it ( there will be an option to do so ) as it does nothing for security but can cause connection difficulties .
