    I recently bought a laptop computer and connected it via a wireless connection to my desktop. I tested it out and all was well. I now want to sell the laptop and make sure it can not use my internet connection. How can I be sure the buyer can't access my internet wireless portal? I use Century Link and run windows 7 on a Q1000 Actiontec modem. I want to avoid setting the laptop back to the factory settings if I can.

    Sorry to seem so dense but this is my first shot at using a second unit on a wireless modem.

    You don't have anything to worry about. They wireless modem will find the nearest signal to connect to; for instance, let's say you travel to Alaska; you will connect to the hotel wireless, NOT your home wireless.
