Right now my neighbors are picking up my signal, and have intruded on my privacy. Not only neighbors, but others with foreign ID's
I just noticed I received three different e-mails where I had changed my password. Please tell me how to secure this wireless gateway
I can do a netstat, and there will be all kinds of connections established. How can I make my computer secure?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Login to 192.168.1.254. That is your gateway's address.
Click on Wireless
- You may want to change the Wireless Name (SSID)
- Also, you can disable the SSID broadcast so that your gateway does not appear as an available wireless network when people search for available access points.
- Make sure that Wireless Security is enabled.
- You may want to change the authentication type as well to whatever will suit your need.
- Most importantly, you can customize your wireless password to something else.
You may also click on Status, under LAN, under Settings.
And if you scroll down a bit, you'll see the devices that are and have been connected to your gateway.
(The device IP addesses and MAC addresses have been removed on this screenshot).
Take note, however, that resetting the gateway will revert all the settings to default.

Hello Alice Sanders, looks like Paul Garcia provided an excellent answer. I am curious however as to what you are meaning when you stated "Right now my neighbors are picking up my signal, and have intruded on my privacy. Not only neighbors, but others with foreign ID's"
Are you referring to the list of wireless networks that appear on the list of Available Wireless Networks?
Please let us know if you still need assistance with this. I will be glad to clarify any security issues with the Residential Gateway. This thread also offers some very good information regarding the SSID Broadcast. Can I hide my u-verse modem from the public as an avialble network?
