Secure you Home Wireless Network
1.Change default administrator password and username
Hacker (your neighbour :-)) knows the default usernames and passwords for all devices. So change it.
There are different types of encryption available for the wireless devices. Choose the best one which is supported by your laptop.
3.Disable SSID broadcast
Not required in a home environment, unless you have different wireless access points and you roam around a lot. Don’t get this point? Post your device model and we will help you out.
4.Change default SSID
Knowing SSID will partly help neighbors to break into your wireless network. So change it. Don’t get this point? Post your device model and we will help you out.
5.Enable MAC address filtering
If supported by you device, enable MAC address filtering and add your laptop MAC address to the list. This ensures that only you can connect to the wireless access point.
If device has a firewall enable it, also enable the firewall in the laptop/PC that connects to the wireless network
Further turn off wireless networks when you are not using it for a long period
