      And change the router password so that they cant switch on your PC and log into the router to find out what the WPA kay is.

      I connect to Sky Broadband via the Yellow Ethernet Cable with the Wireless function disabled.

      If wireless is disabled, encryption is not an issue, surely?

      http://192.168.0.1 and login.

      - Go into Wireless settings
      - Go into Setup Access List
      - Turn Access Control On
      - Bring up a dos prompt and type in ipconfig /all and take a note of Physical Address (ie MAC Address)
      - Add this into the "Add New Station Manually"

      Job Done - will limit Wireless access to only the approved MAC Addresses you put in
      I don't care if the glass is half full or half empty, i just want to know who's been drinking my pint!!!
