Hello,

I am using a linksys wrt54g wireless router. I have two wireless networks that I can connect to, however one of them is not secured and I'd like to remove it. It's the default linksys network. Everytime someone comes to my house and needs the internet, they all connect to the default, unprotected linksys network. How do I delete this network? I don't want anyone to mooch of my internet ;-)

I'm using 1 mac mini and 1 macbook pro running OSX

Thanks!

Hello,

Try this 1

1) First login into your router. Open a browser and in address bar type

192.168.1.1 --> press Enter.

2) Now it will ask you to enter the user name and password.

Leave the user name as blank

Enter the password : admin and click on OK

Now Linksys Setup page will be opened.

3) Click on "Wireless" --> Under "Basic Wireless Settings" --> Disable the option

"Wireless SSID Broadcast" --> Click on "Save Settings".

Note : Make sure you remember the SSID name inorder to connect any PC to

your network.

Good Luck
