    Default How do I see who's connected to my wireless internet? -- I don't trust my neighbor anymore

    I live in a small apartment complex and I gave my friend/neighbor the access key that comes built into my AT&T wireless DSL modem so he could use my wireless. Now, however, it's been several months, and I'm concerned that he's given the key to others in my building. How can I view who's on my network? ... or how do I see who's using my internet? Is it even technically a network?

    Thanks,

    Adam

    First, change the SSID and then change the configuration so that your wireless router does not broadcast its SSID. Next, make sure you are running at least WEP and preferably WPA. Lastly change the key every now and then if you are really paranoid.

    If you connect to the routers admin page, their should be a status showing who's connected using DHCP, wired and wireless. It will list pc my MAC address. If your concern just change the key and SSID as suggested.

    It will also show you what website they've been looking at in the control panel, therefore you can blackmail your neighbor because he's been looking at .

    You could also filter the MAC addresses to allow only specific computers onto the network.
