hey guys

i recently purchased a D-Link DIR 300 wireless modem to help connect my old mans laptop he bought. everything is all set up. I just have a big concern that other people in the area will use my connection without my knowing. So i wanted to know weather there was any way i can secure it with passwords and so on.

any help i will greatly appreciate it.

Thanks

Just a note. Use WPA2 if the laptop supports it or failing that WPA. Do NOT use WEP as it is very insecure.
