    Ok my wifi keeps getting compromised, i have put a 128bit wep key into the router but this dude keeps getting the key from it. He took over my moms laptop a few minutes ago, i went into the router and disabled wifi and kicked both my mom and him off, problem is i need wifi. I limited DHCP and IP range to 2 IP's yet he still keeps getting in, any ideas?

    turn the ssid broadcast off and change the name (this means you will have to manually set each computer to connect to the network) use WPA style encryption and mac address filtering, doing all of that should make your network virtually unhackable

    Kill him. Track him down, and pop a cap in him. Stealing interwebs is serious business. This is the only solution.

    Or, just put WPA, MAC filtering, and hide your SSID broadcast.

    Your choice, although I recommend the first option.

    Does your router have wireless access control like my netgear? I have to add each wireless MAC address for them to be able to gain access.

    Yeah, but the first option only deals with one single guy.
    Might I suggest you look for upside-down-ternet?
    Seriously, it'll piss him off.

    I did have a similar problem, but now I've just simply got WPA-PSK security. Haven't set up MAC filtering or turned off SSID yet.

    I +1 the other suggestions, but also add that you should change the user and password for your router at the same time. He definately won't have access to the router then.

    Just another simple thing to add, hacking WEP is very easy now a days (prolly more limited by the chipset used by wifi cards in PCs) but as far as I know, all Apple desktop and laptops that have wifi built in have the right chipset for hacking WEP keys, its just a matter of know what program (also very easy to obtain) to use.

    My guess is either he has access to the router itself, or the packet sniffing program he uses is able to figure that out for him.

    my guess is if he hacked your connection already and got on your moms computer, hes cloned her mac address so mac filtering wont do anything for you...

    i dont think there is much more you can do at this point.

    heh. any decent hacker can get your ssid even if you dont broadcast it. lots of free programs out there that can easily identify ssids. best thing is to use wpa (any 10 year old with a free sniffing program can hack wep) and then make the password like 40 letters long. that means it will take a lot of time to hack. like months and months.

    he just logged into my network again, except he has his firewall open, i guess thats a downside for him, but im digging around his hard drive and found something to get this guy in more trouble than hacking. He is using our connection for limewire and viewing his folder for saving he is downloading child porn, i think its time to stop dealing with this peice of scum, im gonna take a snapshot of his hard drive and send it to the FBI, let them deal with him

    MAC spoofing is doable but a pain. Therefore use MAC access control. Only allow "known" network cards on to the network. You can also WPA on top of that, but just MAC control might be enough.

    use wpa2 if you have it make it something thats like not your name or w/e like a word and some numbers..if he's using a packet sniffer or a keylogger as well..disconnect the router from the net and hard line your computer in it to access it. then if you can enable router firewall...stealth your ports set your pass word and un forward forwarded ports

    Damn. that sucks dude. I accidentally hijacked a guys router and changed all the settings on the router to my specifications. for about a week i had this guys router. When i changed to hard wire i couldn't access my router. I was like WTF? so i reset the router and set it up again. i disconnected and i saw two of the same networks. I was so confused. Then i realized i must have hacked into my neighbors router. so i reset the settings on his router. apparently he had been connected to mine and i had been connected to his. but nothing as screwed up as this candle...get his ass.
