Can connect to the Internet only with open to everyone. Tried to set as WEP, but can't make it work. I have been trying for 2 hrs. I went to Realtek site and just got run around and around. Can you help? I want protection for my network. I want to give two friends the access number so they can use my wireless router.

You have to clear all the networks from the Wireless utility. This means you will have to delete all the networks saved within the application. Secondly, connect to your router and set WPA 2 Personal. Choose Protocol Encryption as Auto, and assign a password with alpha numberic characters. Initiate the connection again and it should work. Make sure to also switch the wireless mode (b,g,n), if you still have issues connecting.
