How to Know Who is Connected to your Wireless Network?

 

Hello,
Are you worried that an outsider may be connecting to the Internet? He or she using your Wireless network? Then no need to worry i have some points and trick.
1. First one is try AirSnare - it's a free utility that will look for unexpected MAC addresses on your Wireless network as well as to DHCP requests.
2. Second option is that you open your router's administration page (using the 192.168.* address) and look for the DHCP Clients Table (it's under Status > Local Network on Linksys routers). Here you will see a list of all computers and wireless devices that are connected to your home network.


Some points keep in mind:

1. Turn off the router completely when you are not planning to use the computer for a longer period (like when you are out shopping). You save on electricity and the door remains 100% shut for wireless piggybackers.
2. It is about MAC address. If you ever want to let a new device connect to your network, you will have to find its MAC address and add it to your router. If you simple want to let a friend connect to your wireless network one time, you can remove his MAC address from the router settings when he or she leaves your place.
