    I have set up an actiontec wirelss network for broadband in my home.
    When I click the connection icon in the system tray i see my connection
    as available but it's status is 'unsecure' other connections listed
    are, some not. How can i secure my network so that it is being used by
    me and computers in my home?
    Any help would be appreciated and i am sorry if i have'nt included som
    obvious information, but i will try and provide any i can.
    Thanks
