use it, keep your money and use their’s
happen to me to,they used my signal than i made shure i got a secure signal,it made my computer go much slower before ,no its ok..
makes my neighbors too
When you’re connected, double-click that flashing monitor. Click View Wireless Networks. Click on the troublesome network, and click Disconnect. Now it won’t connect to that automatically.
Start/Settings/Network Connections…open your WiFi connection and disable the rogue signal/network that is ticking you off ~smiles~.
Hmmm, by jove! I think you have it occultpizz. They might also want to wep and wap their signal as well. Being as most routers right out the box either do not default to security or they do not have it on the router itself. If either condition exists I would invoke it if the router has it or install a software solution to the encryption of the signal.
Some Routers also have a setting so that they stop broadcasting their presence. If you have this turn it on (off?) once you have set up all your devices.
What is the best thing to do or buy to block my computer signal from others?
You need to login to your router and setup the security option. Follow the directions from the manufacture. You shuld be able to setup a default profile on your wireless device so that it will only connect to your router. Also, check your owners manual.

You can put a password on it from the security options.
Yes, you need to change the login name (or account name) and add a password. Anyone can connect to your router by entering the router address. An experienced person will know most of the default account names and passwords & can get into your router & change your settings. Many routers will come with a WEP password. If your router doesn’t have one you can add one, Use alphas and numbers. Be sure to copy all of the information about account name, passwords and any other information to a Word doc on your computer. It is amassing how fast we forget these things. If you do lose this info or someone changes it, most routers have a reset button on the back. Pressing this button will reset the router back to factory setting and wipe out all of your settings. You will then have to start over (don’t loose your owners manual!).
Not easily, but I’ll try. Start Firefox. Go to BOOKMARKS, ORGANIZE, upper left corner FILE, dropdown list EXPORT. Here is where it gets sticky. Using the up arrow (top row of the new window), locate your C: volume. Click on that and click on Documents & settings. You should now see a folder with your login (users) name. Click on it. This will open a group of folders. Click on FAVORITES. Now Favorites should show in the window at the top (If not start over). You may want to rename the item to be saved as FireFox Bookmarks. Now click on save. When you open IE there will be an item (usually at the bottom) that you saved. Click on that item and you will see a list of benchmarks. Click on anyone and it should open the URL selected.

why would you want to block it?? it doesnt make a difference that its entering yout home. You can kinda block it on a mac, i cant rlly explain how but its in the internet connect.
Id suggest you shift your WIFI gear to another channel.
The reason for this problem is the fact that there are a lot of things that broadcast in the 2.4ghz range, and, depending on your country, only so many channels to spread it accross.
If you are content with a 54mbps speed you only need 1 channel, for a 108mbps speed you need 2 and this is where cross channel interferace is a big problem (can really impact on your overall network speed.
The 802.11g specification is “resilant” in that it can do a co-channel share (but at reduced capacity, shifting your WLAN to another is usually the fastest, easiest solution.
If you have money to burn you could always look at the 802.11a networks (opperate at 5ghz rather then 2.4), there isn’t much in the 5ghz block (yet) and the speeds are comparable to 802.11G.
Id suggest you refer to the manufacturers website for information about shifting your WLAN gear to a different channel, this wont “block” other signals, but it will work alongside it more peacefully.
Next best thing is to create a “FARADAY CAGE” out of a room.

You could buy a signal scrambler that will jam wireless signals. You would then adjust the device from 6 feet up to a half mile. Good luck.
will laptop hang always using window vista?
csfun, open a new thred if you want help
Perhaps if you described your system setup we could be of more help. What kind of systems are you using? What are the Operating systems? What devices are you using to connect the two systems?

He just loves welfare & food stamps.
What kind of device can I buy to scramble the Hell out of his laptop?

Feel sorry for the kids ,but him ? What do you do with such a Person?
I have a problem, in my WIFI-internet that I’m using. I have a internet-cafe that I’m using Wifi-internet in a 5 desktop PC. But the problem is, I have a neighbor beside of my shop and he is using a built-in wifi laptop. He able got my ip address of my wifi that I’m using, and he is always topping my wifi signal.
My friends told me that I have to configure my networking by network sharing that are limited only in how many PC I’m using, so that I able to block his laptop
Yes you can filter access to your router with mac address filtering. This way, only registered mac address of the five PC’s will have wifi access to your network. Every one else will be blocked.
I think the post about using your own network settings to block the signal is right on the money. I can’t imagine a WiFi signal causing anything more than a distraction on your laptop asking if you want to log in unless you house contains a lot of sensitive electronic measuring equipment, in which case you’d probably be better off in a lab, or there is always the Faraday Cage!
I am using windows 7 .system idle process is 99. how to reduce the system idle process .some times hanging the system
I had the same problem when I run events at certain hotels. They jammed the whole 2.4Ghz bandwidth.
