Hello Guys,

I have a query, I recently set up a wireless network using my home PC & a wireless router/modem. The problem is when I did it I set it up as an unsecured network. I would now lik eto make it secure. Problem is my home PC has now basically blown up and wont turn on. Is it possible to change the settings of my network from my laptop and secure it from there? For some reason Im thinking that I need to access my home PC to change the Network settings and thus secure the network.Any help you be much appreciated
