I've got a Linksys wireless router that let's me connect two laptops to the internet and other computers in our home.
I never set it up securely in the install, because when I tried to add MAC (not Macintosh, just the web MAC acronym) addresses I had trouble accessing the network, so I just yanked the security settings.
Over the last week, I've noticed someone (a neighbor, no doubt) has been accessing our wifi. I can tell when they're on, because the Windows networking options come up in my network browser. Typically, I only see those when visiting a client who has that type of network.
So I'd like to lock this baby down and kick them the hell out.
I want to add my two MAC addresses in, but I'm not sure how to find them. I'd also like authorized "guests" to be able to use the network (probably by WEP) with a password.
I did a google search, and I looked through the Linksys site, and a few other forums I visit - but couldn't find a clear set of instructions. Does anyone here know of a resource online that explains this set up well, step by step, preferably with screen caps of the interface window?
Just had to shop this around here. Thanks in advance and stuff. Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.
