    Setting up a password for my network?
    So I have had my network unprotected for the last couple of months. I am using a Linksys Wireless-G Router. Recently, my internet has been moving rather slow, and I assume this is because other people are leeching off my connection . How do I put a password on my MacBook for my internet connection?

    You aren't really putting a password on your computer, you want to put a password on your wireless point. Open up a web browser and log into the router, Linksys is usually 192.162.1.1 and find the WPA security settings. Give it a whopper of a complicated password. At that point you will have to reconnect to your newly protected wireless network. All of your life's problems will be solved.

    I kinda need step-by-step instructions, because every time I enter 192.162.1.1 into my browser, it does nothing.

    That's because I can't type...
    It should have been 192.168.1.1
    Very sorry!
