hi chicagotech, and thank you for helping me fix this issue. What i meant was when i click on view available wireless networks. i see my network and many other network that are secured and inaccessible wirelessly. meanwhile mine says unsecure network and it's easily accessible.
what should i do to keep people from using my router (make it secured with the lock on it just like other people network.)

thanks again

You can do a couple of things:

1.) Use WEP encryption. This is done by accessing the 'admin' panel on your router.

2.) Stop broadcasting the SSID (the name for you router) (is that the right term? I forget)

3.) Filter by MAC addresses.
