|i have downloaded the manual and i did read it...this is not my field!|
These manuals are made to be used by people with no computing experience. They're written in very clear, simple language that the average 10 year old child would understand.
So might be better not to be condescending...you'll get further by trying that!
I didn't start out condescending. I tried to be helpful. But you seem set on claiming stupidity in the face of the above fact (ie: manual is written at a 10 year old's level of understanding) and I'm left feeling you don't want to do anything for yourself but would instead rather we did the thinking for you and spoonfed you answers. That tends to bring out the sarcastic/condescending streak in me.
You obviously missed the point of what mikelinus was saying in his last post (response #14). I'll quote him:
"If you are not connected, wouldn't the light be on because no one is connected?"
What he's saying is, since you don't use the wireless, but have a WLAN configured and enabled, that the wireless light is flashing amber because NOBODY is connected to the wireless network. Ergo your router thinks there may be a problem.
I suspect he's got the right answer. Connect one device wireless to your WLAN and then watch. If the wireless light never blinks amber with something connected then he hit the nail on the head and it was blinking amber, not because your neighbor is trying to connect to your WLAN, but because nothing is connected to the WLAN and the router is interpreting that as there being a problem with wireless devices connecting to your router.
The wireless side is for other people i am fixing their stuff
It's still the same network so there's no benefit to connecting someone elses computer wirelessly to your LAN. If you were thinking it would keep your computers from potentially being infected by someone's computer you're working on, it won't because they're all on the same LAN.
If it were me, I'd just plug the other PC's in too and I'd kill the wireless. Then you never have to worry that your neighbor is trying to access your WLAN.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
