    I'm using a wireless connection for a labtop to use the internet, however i
    feel that people are using my internet connection. How do i put password on
    it so only certain people the password can use it? also will that effect the
    computer i'm also using that is plugged in with a cable?

    You need to enable encryption on the router. Then you'll enter the
    encryption key into any computers connecting wirelessly. Here are links
