How do I prevent my wireless card from being accessed by others?

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?TVdI?=, Jul 7, 2005.

  1. I recently installed a Linksys WUSB11 wireless card in a second computer. It
    feeds off of my DSL Gateway on another computer in order to gain internet
    access. When I connect my wireless computer to the internet and right-click
    on the icon in the task bar, I see my new wireless account, but I also see my
    linksys appearing as an unsecured wireless network.

    How do I secure this to prevent someone from logging on to my account?
