A very simple question - is there a quick way to ensure that my wireless is secure from unauthorised users connecting?
Its already secure, as its protected using a wireless encryption key. Unless you give somone else the key, they cannot connect to your wireless network.
hi i was wondering if i can check with you too keith regarding this, i have just had infinity installed and when i check in troubleshooting under wireless and firewall i see a lot of remote attempts on my router? here are a few of the 'attempts' theres lots more! hopefully you can advise me if i need to check or change anything? many thanks, sorry to jump into this thread :s

Nothing to worry about, its just the firewall and IDS (Intrusion Detection System) doing its job by blocking connections from the Internet which are either invalid, or attempts to look for open ports.
