I have no idea what this all means...

A - for the wireless side, you could have setup encryption key - WEP, WPA,
B - for the wireless side, you could have used a MAC address access list
C - Some Linksys devices have a "permission list" that lists computer IP
addresses or MACs,
and the times of day they can access the router network - ala parental
So - which Linksys router do you have,
and which set of controls do you think you used ?
