Hello all, I'm the new guy in the block...I have an aironet 1200 access point working fine. I would like to add an ssid key/password so outside wireless users do not attach to my AP. I know how to access the AP config menus, but do not know where to go to secure it. TIA

This guide shows how to put WEP encryption (futile), WPA2 personal (recommended) should not be too hard to configure. Just set a little complicated key (numbers, caps, etc) and the WLAN will be secure enough for your neighbours.
