My grandson will visit soon and bring his wifi equiped laptop with him. I have wireless broadband with aol. How can I let him use his laptop whilst he is here to access the net?

Thanks tullie. Won't the security settings on my network stop the connection? I can't access the guy next doors network even though my computer can see it.

I think it will ask o the SSID,which is on router,and the number you entered when you set yours up.You cant access next door because you dont know the SSID
