setting passwords for Internet access

  Gems_ca 19:10 20 May 2009

I have a Windows PC with Internet access. However, when I changed to Broadband I didn't set-up a password. I now have an issue with Internet usage, and am wondering if others might be using my Broadband from outside the house.

So, my question is, how can I set up a password to limit other people's access to my Internet?

My router is d-link, if that info is needed.

You need to go into your ISP set up to set a wireless password.

Okay. Just one problem - the computer I'm on about is in the UK, and I'm currently in Canada.

So, I have to try and talk my daughter through this, and I have no idea what to do.

Not knowing my computer, is there anybody who can try and tell me what I have to tell her? sorry for being a pain.

You need to log into the router configuration - give the model number of the router, the manuals usually explain how to secure the wireless connection pretty clearly. Take a look here too; click here

Google "secure your wireless connection" for lots more guides.
