Wireless Network Problem

By ryder007 ·
Hi I live with two roomates and I have set up a wireless network. Everything was working fine until a person in the nextdoor apt. set one up too. Now we occasionally lose our broadband service and sometimes end up grabbing ip's from their router. I tried setting static ip's for us but we still lose our connetion occasionally. Like I said everyting was fine until the other wireless was set up. Any ideas on how I can isolate this? Thanks.

yes,
he , (and you) have to secure his (your) network(s).
he has to restrict the mac adresses that can access his router (and btw use the encryption too to further secure else you can start snooping on his network and maybe vice versa too)
Start reading the documentation about how to secure your wireless network.

you can do a search on techrepublic to find artickle and google.

Some things you and your neighbour should do;

1)Turn off DHCP on your routers and use static IPs.
2)Implement the highest supported level of encryption you can.
3) Specify different channels.
4)Specify your SSID and disable SSID broadcasts on the routers.
5) Use MAC filtering if your router supports it.

tell the wireless router to quit broadcasting it's network name and change the network name to something other than the default...
