This is important security information for many people. However, I often depend on open networks when traveling.

Hi Yasin,

U need to follow the same steps for mobile as well. U need to put the mobile's mac-address. To find the Mac-Address of the mobile. Goto Setup page--Status(TAB)--Wireless(TAB)--DHCP Client Table and check for the users using ur router. Find the Mac-address and IP address of the mobile users and block them by putting the Mac-Address on the Mac-address table.
