    Hey everyone, I live in an apartment complex in a college town, and I can always view like 5 different wireless networks at a time. Sometimes my internet lags and I'm afraid that some bozo is connecting to my connection instead. I was wondering if there was a way to figure out if other people are, or better yet to allow only computers that i want access to the network, like some sort of password protection. Thank you.

    wireless networks should have a basic form of encryption here

    and airsnare should be pretty handy at checking who is using your network.

    could you not sniff the network and use a trusted mac adress on the network to connect to it.

    you would have to wait for the machine to be switched off.
