before wifi existed the threat of no cable tv in their bedrooms did wonders . . .

@Sathon "@TKD_Master, you have to actually be connected to the Internet first to be able to change the encryption key."

No, you don`t. To change the wireless password/encryption key on your router you simply have to be connected to the network. Whether that network is connected to the internet or not is irrelevant. Also, big hint: That big blue "e" on your desktop is not `the Internet` either.

This wouldn`t work in HK:

(1) Everyone has maids
(2) Everyone has maids
(3) Charsiu is made from dogs

Besides, with 30 apartments within WIFI coverage, chances are there`ll be unlocked neighbours WIFI with a stronger signal than your own.

"or, option b: Run a cable and never have to do chores again"

You can configure most routers to restrict access by MAC address (unique identifier every internet-connectable device has). Cable or no cable, still denied!

...How is this not rewarding hard work? Get your poo done for the day, and you can do whatever you want. It`s not even a hard list of chores. It`ll take an hour.

Also, who do you think cried and begged for that damn dog?

Here`s a better idea - Teach your children the value of hard work & reward & maybe you wouldn`t have to bribe or blackmail them into doing things for you.

Better yet - feed your own damn dog...

Seriously? You guys are arguing about how to change a router password? go to 192.168.1.1 (yours may be different, but this is typically the default) log in (if you don`t have to log in, you`re doing it wrong.) go to wireless security and change the goddamn password.

@JaundiceCake, It does reset the router if you do a hard reset, which on a lot of routers is done by holding in the reset button for a few seconds whilst powering up.

The way I lock things down is a combination of router hardware, and server software... so you can only get on the network with a domain account, and that is locked down and audited.

I do something similar to my kids tbh. I`m an IT manager and my network is locked down pretty tight - I do run a couple of games servers for my kids and my nephews, their friends etc., and if the kids don`t behave and do their chores - then they don`t get access to the network with the games servers on. It works... especially when I look at the server logs and say `oh your friends are on the minecraft server... you could have been if you`d washed the dishes like you were asked to`. Thankfully my kids have realised that the path of least resistance is just to do as they are asked first time around and then they get the benefit of me putting my spare time into games servers and such for them to play on.

ted, it`s certainly not slave labour to have to do some chores round the house. They`re just lucky I didn`t take a leaf out of my military days and make them do kit inspections every day too. :)

I know right? Cuz mom and dad are have it so well there`s no limit to how much they can spoil their kids.

@phirephoto

At which point the parents would probably just take the computer away and have some IT guys undo the damage.

Fun idea, but flawed.

Firstly, they would have to also hide the router, because if the kids knew where it was they could just press the reset button.

Second, the kids could just plug directly into the modem and use wired Internet, for which there is no password.

And if the parents have the router set on a weak form of encryption (and the kids are crafty) then they could run a packet sniffer on their own Internet and have the password in minutes.

That being said, kids these days are drating stupid and probably wouldn`t know how to do any of those with their pink diamond-encrusted Macs, so the parents probably win this one.

What?! More like doing their part for the family instead of getting a free ride for 18 years. Grow up.

tedgp-"Getting kids to perform slave labour every day."

It`s not `slave labour`. I know it`s a foreign concept with the current `Y me` generation, but it`s called `chores`, and helps the kids realize you may actually have to exert yourself to get things you want.

That`ll work - until the kid hacks the WiFi and changes the password, then turns the tables on mom & dad.
