    Help with keeping neighbors from using my internet connection

    I need some help. My wireless internet connection is being used by my neighbors. According to the log that shows the actvity with my router.
    This is the first router I've ever had so I dont know how to protect my computer or my wireless connection. I've tried the mac filter option but then my computer is unable to connect to the internet and only the Wii can.
    I must be doing something wrong or something. I only have the option to enter one mac address so I enter in the Wii's address. Does this sound right?
    My router is a D-Link DI524. Dont know if that helps.

    you need to enter your router in WEP mode I believe. Its when you need to enter a code to use the wireless. Go to the main page of your router and look for something called WEP and turn it on but make a pass and REMEMBER it. Once you get your wii on. search for an access point then you should see it locked. Just enter that wep code and your set. =)

    I looked at the manual for your router. . .although it's kinda dumb, it looks like you can only use 1 MAC address filter.

    The other option is to enable WEP. Once enabled, all the devices that access the wireless connection will have to enter a key. I haven't tried using this with my Wii since my router allows me to limit by multiple MAC addresses, so I don't know if WEP works well with the Wii.

    WEP does work with wii. I have it set like that. After an hour and a half with *******, finally got it working. WEP works fine but my problem is acording to Nintendo I have something interfering with my wireless internet, such as a 2.4 ghz phone.. My connection comes in and out all the time which sucks but gonna get fixed tomorrow. Use WEP its ez and fast.

    Lol. I dont think the apartment manager would appreciate it.
    She would probably kick me,my wife, and my kids out of the apartment complex but thanks for the advice anyway though. BTW isnt it illegal to use someone elses internet connection? Not that you could actually get someone in trouble for it because I'm sure it would be near impossible to do with all the people that probably do it but just curious.

    They way people see it here in the interwebs is that if someone is actually stupid to not password their internet, then it is their fault and the internet can use it as much as needed. Now that you know that make sure to password protect it.
    Don't know if you got it to work yet, but if there are any problems you just let me know.
