Securing a wireless network

  lasttoke 17:10 31 Jul 2006

I've just bought and setup a belkin wireless router, with a modem (wired), laptop (wireless) and a dektop pc (wireless via usb network adapter) connected to it, however the network is currently unsecure, and i need to know how to secure it. I've been told to contact belkin, however i've already spent an hour on there and, well, they're useless. PLEASE HELP

Nice link. Looks like a useful site.

Quote "If you use cable internet access from NTL or Telewest, you will need to retain your cable modem and connect it to a Cable/DSL router that does not have a built-in modem. Some cable customers may have internet access from an ADSL provider that has an arrangement to use your cable company's phone line; if you have this kind of service, your modem will need to be replaced with a combined modem/router."

The final few words "your modem will need to be replaced with a combined modem/router." Should this read "your modem will need to be replaced with a combined ADSL modem/router"?

Don't be picky ;-) I started that project months ago and it's tiring me out now!

I'll change it for you forthwith! LOL.

Don't worry, you have the rest of your life to finish it!
