    I have what I believe to be a fairly simple question. Their are people in my apt. complex using my wifi. This tends to bog down my connection speed. How do password protect my wifi connnection so that only those with my password could access the internet using my connection?

    it depends on your router. read the manual.

    also open your web browser and type each of these until it finds a page:
    you should also change the name of the wifi network and set it to hide the wifi name (ex. uncheck broadcast SSID). then you can type in the name of the SSID into your computer wireless program and tell it to save it as a profile or location.
