Since this is a hardware forum, I suggest we use the "Cone of Silence" to keep others from hearing the WiFi signal.
An alternative is to make sure that no other Wifi recievers that you don't want to hear your broadcast are about 5 miles away.
If you are asking about software configurations, you may want to post in a networking or software forum.
PS. The answer might be... Enable WEP and MAC filtering. As this is a Hardware Forum, be sure to post about hardware.
I need help making my wireless connection secure. I have a Linksys wireless router and a Linksys modem as well. When I set it up I don't think I set it up to protect my connection. I sort of rushed through it to get it set up. Is there any way to access a menu on my computer to set it up to encode the connection? I just saw a newspaper article about people hacking into people's wireless connections. I'm concerned about making my connection safe now.
