finding out if your Wi-Fi is being stolen
you obviously do not want to go through the process of installing and paying for the wireless network if some intruder is going to use it without your consent. And it slows down your performance.
- There are three lights on your router indicating the state of your network. If your computers are off and the third light is firm, then its probably a problem with your internet service that must be slow. That means no one is stealing your internet.
- If however, that light is blinking, turn on your main system and load it up, log in and let it load. After this use your browser type your routers’ IP ( it should be in the manual).
- Now go to attached devices, this will provide you with a list of computers connected to your router and those connected recently. Disconnect them (this is a temporary solution).
- Setup your security. Got to security or setup and select WEP or WPA (preferred highly). Setup a key for your use. This will disconnect your wireless for a bit. To reconnect all you have to do configure wireless with the new password too. Click apply/save and allow your computer to reboot.
- After you disconnect, double click on the icon for wireless desktop. It will have an X on it. Choose your network and enter the password and confirm. Now you can connect to the internet and use it frrly with out piggy backers or wardrivers slowing you down.
