Setting password for prepaid internet connection


I am currently using the Pre Paid Telstra Elite mobile WIFI modem (MF60).

How do I set up a password, so each time I access the internet, my neighbours etc cant log into my unsecured internet?

Please help, as I am a total computer novice!!!!

Re: Setting password for prepaid internet connection

See page 10 on how to log in to the Web-based user interface, then pages 13-15 about how to change the Security configuration.

Suggestion: Select WPA2-PSK as the type of security, and choose a long and difficult-to-guess passphrase (with both uppercase and lowercase letters mixed in numbers, and no part of which can be found as words in a dictionary, for example).
