Question Access Point Security

I have a Sony VAIO access point,and when I brought my new laptop I was able to connect to the internet through the access point without any passwords or key, so I wonder how can I make the connection secure, as this way anyone in the range of the access point can connect to the internet through it.

Default Re: Access Point Security

You'll have to access the Vaio's web menu using Internet Explorer (Try inputing this into the Address toolbar of IE-- without the www) from your computer and somewhere on there should be a security menu where you can input all this. You can assign passwords, set encryption or a set amount of IP addresses so if you know you only have two PCs, you can set it to just that to prevent someone from getting on.

If that doesn't work, the settings can be done over the CD setup wizard that came with the Sony VAIO LAN access point. It must be accessed using one of these two ways.

Does your VAIO look like this?

*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
