it is possible to setup MAC Address Filtering. Which allows you to setup your router so that only those MAC addresses of devices you authorise can access the internet/network.

Be careful though. If you set it up wrong you wont be able to get on it at all and you'll need to reset the router.

Or, make your wifi more secure by using WPA2 encryption. Also, make your password more complex such as "543rtgRR$55#!"

Sometimes when my internet is down I forget the rest of my computer works.
