      As mentioned, MAC address filtering would be the best option, its another thing they have to crack before they get in, so they may give up, as well as disabling the broadcast. It would seem that they are doing it for fun, so they might not be bothered to go through the hassle of cracking more security.

      That's my thought too. The last thing a hacker would want to do is draw attention to the fact that access had been gained. They'd leave the password setting well alone. Why change it?

      Sounds like a router glitch.
