      Can I see who's connected to my broadband?

      Hi

      I've a sneaking suspicion that my neighbour has copied down my network key from my netgear and is using my wifi. Is there any way I can see which computers are connected and how could I block it?

      It's a long story, but it's pretty important. Thanks for any help.

      Re: Can I see who's connected to my broadband?

      Yes, for the V1 white router, login to your router and click on "Attached Devices" shown in the left hand pane. This will show you the IP Address, Device Name and MAC Address of everything that is connected to your router (either wirelessly or wired).

      If you think your network has been breached, maybe you should change the network security key? In addition, you might also want to consider restricting wireless station access by adding in the MAC Addresses of your devices.

      This tutorial will give you an idea how to set up your security.-
      Sky User - The unofficial support forum for everything Sky! How-to Configure your Routers Wireless Settings
      Remember, change the WPA key to one of your own, it should be at least 16 characters long and you need not use all Caps, you can use upper lower numbers and even characters like ? or !. If you make a mistake it will tell you. You can return to the default by pushing a pin into the little hole in the back and holding it there for about 10 secs.
