Hi,

I just moved into a house with a few other people and they have a wireless router for their internet. Right now they have two Macs and I have my PC on an unsecured wireless network that they had set up. I would really like to make this a secured connection with a password but I'm not sure how to do it since there are going to be the three different computers using the connection. I know nothing about Macs...could someone please walk me through setting up a password for our network?

Thanks!

Which Internet Service provider are you using?
Was the Wireless Router provided by the Service provider or was it purchased?
If Purchased, which make and model.

Don't do it.
You could lock yourself and your room mates out of your ability to reach the net.
