    Secure wifi tutorial


    Can someone point me towards a good tutorial on how to setup a secure wireless network in Linux? Most everything I find is on just getting it working...

    Here's my setup

    internet
    |
    puter1
    |
    hub --- (wired) --- puter2
    |------ (wireless) ---- puter3

    Some concerns...

    1. Right now, anyone can use my wireless internet
    2. They also have access to all my puters if they get on my network



    *EDIT: The default login for the router WGR614 is 192.168.0.1, however, puter1's address is 192.168.0.1. How can I login to the router?

    Have you tried WEP encryption yet? I think that might help a tiny bit. There should be some tools in your wireless router that will enable you to tighten down, like broadcast range etc
