I am trying to block a wireless user from my router. The router I am using is a WESTELL 257; if I select filtering it turns off all wireless users.

You will need to add the MAC addresses of the users that will be allowed access once you turn on the filtering.

Encryption

by Ed Woychowsky In reply to Charles

You need to turn on encryption on your router and add configure each computer to access the network. Use WPA, or better yet, WPA2 instead of WEP. WEP can be cracked in around an hour using free tools. Here's an article about this: http://compnetworking.about.com/cs/winxpnetworking/ht/wpainwindowsxp.htm
