    Securing my Network

    Hi - I'm not too sure if my wireless network is secure or not. How do I ensure / setup a network password so only I can access the network? Thanks

    turn SSID broadcast off... turn access list on (ie only mac addresses on the list can get access)
    turn the highest encryption on... (I only have wep on so my PSP and old laptop can access but i beleve WPA is alot more secure.)
