    Tomorrow (Monday) I am visiting a friend. She knows less about computers than me so sent me an email asking if I coukld sort out a couple of problems when I visit.
    The one problem she identified is
    She wants me to adjust the settings on her Belkin Router to secure it so it will only allow her computers access. Naturally she is concerned that her network may be used by others. She has Win XP and a Belkin Wireless Network.Any suggestions where I should begin would be great.
    Thanks,

    Login to the router and enable WPA-PSK encription. If any of the wireless adapters do not support WPA, see if there is a driver update to correct that problem. If some device cannot be upgraded to WPA, then use WEP. If using WEP use a Hex key, not an ascii passcode.
