Chili & Computers

Calling all computer geniuses!

I made beer with chili, I mean chili with beer and got a little buzzed.

Now I need help with securing my wireless internets.

HELP! Please

What if it's asking for a user ID and password when I type the router in the IP and I don't remember putting one in? Is there a way to reset the router completely?

Most routers will have a reset (recessed too) button that you can mash with a pencil point...you'll probably have to hold it down a certain amount of time.
As for accessing the admin page, usually the id is admin and password or similar for the password.....you should be able to download the instruction manual, and may have to call the customer service to get the id and password if you don't already have it.

Want to secure your network? Turn off wireless and use this.

You know the whole reason this is happening is because I was told our 'neighbors' are stealing our internet.

When you set up the secure wireless, name it "I know you are stealing my internet"

They are probably looking at files on your computer as well. Well, that is, if they know what they are doing.

What is your address?

How does one go about unloading stolen internet? Do you take it to a pawn shop or an internet scrapyard?
