View Full Version : Network Setup Help - kind of urgent

13th September 2010, 07:55 PM
i think I have done something wrong when setting up a network and forgotten a password - so I think other people can access/use it. I am a bit of a gumby when it comes to this stuff, so am freaking out a bit.

I just got an iphone and I have a mac. I was trying to setup the wifi thing on the iphone and couldn't see my computer, so I went into airport network preferences, dropped down the Network Name drop down and chose create network - and created it without a password accidentally. My Iphone saw it straight away but didn't ask for a password or show a padlock next to it. So I think anyone can actually access/use it right?

How do I delete or add the password. I have gone into the advanced tab and deleted it - but it is still showing in the drop down on the front and even more worrying, I can see it on my iphone!

Please help.

I think you can sort it out like this:
1. Turn Airport off.
2. Turn Airport on again.
3. Create a new network - and remember to set a password.
I think that's all there is to it?
