can i still connect to my own internet? if so.... how? where do i go? how?

and my router.... i locked my signal to disable strangers entering my network. is this why my laptop wont show my internet on the internet list? do i have to unlock my signal? how do i unlock my signal for the laptop to access while disabling strangers entering my internet?

i went to my router setup page and enable router signal to let my laptop access internet. my internet show up on the list on the laptop.... i chose it and type password... then it says i got in but then no internet connection. whats wrong?

i troubleshoot and it says DNS isnt responding. what i do?

more info usually helps, glad you got it going.

now,remember,no matter how much security you put in there, anyone with some time on there hands can and will break in :D
