    Can anyone tell me of a good VPN, which can block anyone from getting access to your computer through router?
    Thank you.

    From my opinion, the Routers Firewall isn't good enough, it's just something basic only. If you like to have a good control, create your own Hardware Firewall using either Smoothwall Express and/or PFSense, both are free of charge. All you'll need, is a decent computer (low level will do that work) for to use to create such Hardware Firewall. Except for installation of the Firewall Software, both come with either Linux or FreeBSD, no Monitor, Keyboard or Mouse is used.

    1) type in address bar “192.168.1.1 ” (without quotes)
    2) You will be prompted for a username and password, which should be on a stcker on router.
    2a) default user/pass possibly is admin / admin or admin / password *
    3) log in, go to “Wireless Settings” and navigate to the “Security” menu. Then look for the “Change Password” field.
    4) set a good password.
    hope this works

    Edit: * - If you didn't change your router password during installation, it may have been changed to the serial number of your router to improve security. You can find the serial number of your router on the label affixed to the back or bottom of your router.

    If you changed your router password during setup, it's very important that you find where you wrote down your new security settings. If you can't remember the new password and can't find the paper where you wrote down the new security settings, you will have no choice but to reset your router to the default settings. This has serious consequences. When you reset your router, you not only reset the password to the default value, but you also delete all your network settings. This includes the SSID and network security key. That means you will have to reconfigure your network and all the wireless adapters on your home network computers.
