    I want to use the wep feature on my wireless router to boost my security (from zero) I have figured out how to do it administratively with the router (D-Link 108) What steps do I take for the ibook itself....??? I have OX10.5 Tiger.... Still getting used to the the new OS, as I am a Windows convert.

    It's 10.4 Tiger, first of all.

    Second, just try accessing in Safari to get to the router settings. You could be able to enable security in there!

    In your head.
    I think your asking about the filevault feature.

    System Prefs-->Security->Set Master Password, FileVault, Require Password to Wake computer, Etc... as you see fit.

    Note: If you loose your password you can not reset it.

    More to follow.

    ...just to follow on with this, if your computer is set to ask for your pwd on Wake and Login and you don't set it to something insane, the odds of forgetting your password after using it for a week are pretty slim.... YMMV. You're more likely to forget the "master password" that you can set since you'll probably never use it. (So it might be worth writing it down and keeping it someplace safe).
