I don't save logins or passwords in my browsers nor on my computer. I do allow cookies that save the login.

Question was more to do with routers than browsers.

Well you know what you have to do if that happens and you can't remember.

And then after you get it reset, write down the password and what not and leave it under the router. No point in hiding it because if someone gets that close to it and wants access all they have to do is hit the reset button.

My SSID isn't broadcast anyway, I also change all defaults including the default network subnet, router passwords etc. every thing is secured - the thing I find is that I do not set things correctly at home I tend to get lazy when setting up other peoples systems

Mine is "DGHome" My initials and the word Home.

It may not be that way for long, because after reading this thread I have the urge to get creative... But I have to change a netbook, a printer and a phone to do it. I may also change back to WPA while I am at it... I dropped to WEP because a laptop that isn't usually there couldn't use WPA successfully.

Hi all, thought this is the best place to ask... Is there a way to plug my computer into my LAN and have access to my home network but avoid using its internet access altogether? So that I can use a separate wireless network for internet?
