I want to set up a password for my belkin router. I tried through their website but it just stopped my computer from connecting to the router. I had to disable the WEP stuff etc. Does anyone know how I can set up a password to stop my pikey neighbour from accessing my internet connection? I also need to set it up on my laptop too and any other computers that come into my house (if you could provide some info on that too :tazz: )

I tries searching and searching but its no good. Nothing seems to give the right info. So heres looking at you! Also is there any way that I can actually physically see who is using my connection...

Not sure why you want to "tried through their website but it just stopped my computer from connecting to the router". Can you access the router by using the router IP?

Yer thats what I meant by using the website thingmebob. I tried to set a security password and it basically disconnected this computer and I had to reset the router and remove any hint of wireless security on the comp.

I couldnt enable the WEP on my desktop to coincide with the apparant password on the router IP. They were two different password types... the router ip wanted just a password and the settings on my desktop wanted a 9/13 character password. Which I didn't set/have....
