I just purchased Netgears power line wireless network extender and set it up according to the instructions. I linked the two adapters so that the connection would use the encryption key. However, when you see the Netgear network in the list of available wireless networks, there is no lock next to it. Certainly I've never been asked for a key to sign on.
I assumed that was because it was using my router and my IOS devices were already set up for that. However, I was helping a neighbor with her laptop and that was also able to simply connect.
Is there anything I can do to increase the security! I live in a small village and don't want tourists driving by and using my network!
Thanks for any suggestions.
