Through a fair amount of stupidity I now have AT&T U-verse. As I understand this new modem/gateway/router thingy also allows Wi-Fi access. I want to disable this as I don’t want any of my neighbors doing anything that might get me into trouble. Poking around AT&T’s website all I have been able to find so far are instructions to setup a connection, but not how to secure one. I will call AT&T tomorrow, but I thought I would ask here as well, just to be sure.
Bonus question: Just how far does the Wi-Fi signal go?
You should have a password that came with it, probably in the form of a sticker that’s been stuck to the front of the manual. That level of protection will stop neighbors that aren’t professional crackers/intelligence agency personnel.
Oh, and in my house - I can access our AT&T UVerse WiFi on the sidewalk out front, but that’s about it. It doesn’t extend into my backyard, with the WiFi box at the front of the house.
The thing is I live in hotel with very small rooms. My guess is (going by room size) this building is about 35 feet wide X 80 feet deep. There is also one registered sex offender living here. I doubt that this person is a concern but I rather not find out the hard way.
:smack::smack::smack: GODDAMN IT!
And of course the URL you gave me is listed on the side of the gateway right next to the device access code.
