    Setup security on the router and don't give them the key.

    but on my d-link and several other models you can limit the number of concurrent connections (Mine is limited to no more than 2 wireless connections at a time). Also, you can set up connections based upon the computers MAC address. I set up my home network to feed out 'static' DHCP addresses to my PC's and laptop based upon their MAC addresses. Again you can limit the amount of addresses that can be assigned by DHCP. Finally, use a really good password when setting up the WEP encryption, and use the 128bit encryption. Turn off the SSID broadcasting.

    We have Belkin F5D8230-4, login the router, goto:
    Security => Security Mode : 128bit WEP
    You can put a PassPhrase to generate the key.

    Then click on "Apply Changes".

    Now all the wireless connection must have the key to get connected.

    You need to setup security on your router.

    Check your documentation, there should be a section that will allow you to assign access to your wireless connection by MAC addresses. Hence you list the MAC's for the pc's on your network.

    And this blocks everything else.

    Odviously-you arent firmiliar with the wireless config.. so... The only fool proof way you are going to make it in this world is to get a big box, take the router off the wires, throw it in there and strat it on fire,,,
