    One of the main reasons I bought the SX41 was to restrict my sons internet access to reasonable hours. To enforce this I have blocked his access (another problem there!) using the MAC address of his PC. However, I noticed he was getting around this. It seems the router does not always require a login/password to access it. If I have been connected to it, and close the page, you can access it again without a password. Just put the address in the browser and there it is! Absolutely no security. I can find no settings for this.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    If you logged into the router once and didn't close every browser window you had open, your browser keeps the password saved.
    You need to close out every browser you had open before you let anyone else use the computer. He may also have the password saved somewhere. You should change the password and never enter it on his computer and you won't have the issue anymore.
