    Well, you didn't tell us the most important part, the make/model of the router! :D

    What kind of message are you seeing that tells you someone else is using your Internet connection? I'd be a bit suspicious since I've not heard of a wireless router generating such a message.

    This lady is my friend in the UK, she doesnt know too much about computers. I'm in Australia, and I told her to contact you.

    What she really wants to know is - how does she set up a password to stop other users from bludging off hers. I could not help her. If you could spell it out simply that would be great.

    Many thanks.

    This is clearly spelled out in the manual.
    I see the link doesn't work-probably because it's psp.
    If she doesn't have the manual on her install CD, she can go here:
    http://www.buffalotech.com/
    Click on her region and go to Support/Downloads/Archive products and find the download page for her model.
