Voyager 2091 wireless router security

Hi,

I have just installed my Voyager 2091 wireless router and got myself successfully connected to Plusnet. Then my neighbour suggests that there are security issues with having a wireless router. That someone could be sat outside my house accessing my broadband/computer without my knowledge? Is this correct and what should I do about this?

Thanks

You need to secure you connectons. If you obtain a manual for your router then its easy to do

1. Switch on the WEP security using a key created by you
2. Hide your network name so that other people can't see it
3. Eac of your connecting PC's will have a machine access code (MAC Address) Add these so that only comms from your pc's will accessible over your network

Hope this helps
