Hey, when we (my brother before I came) set up the wireless network here, he didn't put in any sort of function whereby a code would be needed to access our network. Now, we've got so many people sucking off of our "Netgear" network that I'll get booted off from 7-10 pm (prime internet time for a lot of people). Is there any way I can simply adjust the settings so only the three laptops and one pc currently used in the apartment can use the network?? In other words, how do I get the network off of a public setup?? The model is Netgear MR814v2, laptops running on windows xp. Oh, and the wireless thingamajigger was originally installed on the computer (Windows 00 or 98, I think). Does that mean I have to change the settings there or can I do it from my laptop?? Thanks..
