I put a password on my wireless modem TP-LINK , and I expected it to ask for password everytime i want to connect but it doesn't. How can I change the settings so that it asks for password everytime for connecting??

usually you will only be asked for the password the first time you connect to the wifi and the password will be saved on the device.

you might have had an option Not to save the password when you first connected.

in the area where you manage you wireless networks there should be a setting to not auto connect. This should require you enter the password every time you connect manually

it is on the devices connecting to the modem/router.

there is no setting on the modem/router that will require the user to authenticate every time he is trying to connect to the wireless.

the only time it will require that is if your router supports Guest network

There are three users in the home and we want the same pass word but not the one that came with the router.

the only password that come on a router by default is the one you need to configure the router. Usually the wireless does not have a password. You will have to log into the router, using a network cable, and configure the wireless settings by enableling the wireless security, choosing a wireless mode (if possible use WPA2), and setting a wireless password (use a strong one like !!P4ssw0rd@@).

I see no part in this thread where he said what his IP was so how do you know his third octet is .8?

More importantly, this thread is from last December, I would hope he got it figured out by now.
