Re: I think my neighbor is hacking me !! how can I tell for sure?

Assuming you have a router, your security log keeps track of any and all devices that log into your connection.

Go thru all your devices to identify all of the MAC codes, and once you have identified all of them, and you still find one or more you don't personally have a device for, the odds are that you might have a hacker.

You CAN disable any incoming connections for that device. At a minimum, you should change the network (SSID) password, and also enable the two extra security layers (usually, just needs a check in a block) the combination commonly called wpsk2.

It is also better to use a wireless router that is type "N" rather than type "G" connections. (Much better security.)

The latest is called something like type "AB", but those are not commonly used yet, but inclue the latest security standards from type "N".

Other than locking down your connection,it is hard to prove anyone in particular is hacking, but if you can (not sure how to actually do that) you CAN file charges against them for theft of services, maybe even identity theft, and so on.

Good luck

I wish Norton would bring  back the Network Security Map.
