    Hi Guys,

    I would like to know a good how-to on how I can lock down my Linksys 11B router. The manual is not too helpful with this. I have two computers on my network setup.

    Thanks in Advance

    Are you referring to a 802.11B wireless router? There is no linksys product with such a code.

    http://www.iss.net/wireless/WLAN_FAQ.php

    They are quite advanced documents but you get the idea ;)

    Basically from a little wireless router you want to activate MAC Filtering, change the SSID, disable SSID broadcasts and use WEP and IPSEC. You also want to use a strong admin password and change the SSID every month or so.

    Little bit from linksys:
