Hello lsy0901,
 
In order to provide the steps to change the wireless key of the modem/router that you are using, we need to find out which modem/router (2wire, Motorola, Speed Stream etc) you are using.

Hello lsy0901,
 
It is not possible for anyone to access your wireless network, without knowing the Wireless key.

Yeah, if the other computers can still get in it means something didn't save right. Do they actually have access to the network, or does it just show connected?

 

Sometimes with WEP it will show connected, but if you actually try to use the internet or network resource it doesn't work because its not really connected properly. It also depends on which operating system your using.
