Hello, i have a quick question:
Is there an easy way to see if there are other people connected to my wireless router? Maybe even see their IP?
Would it not be easier to lock down your wireless router with Mac filtering and WEP?
I wardrive myself and beleive me, you really don't want people on your router.
If they are able to connect they could reconfigure your router settings. This would cause you a lot of trouble and wasted time.
I really advise you to keep people off your network and away from your router.
If you let us know what the make and model is, we might even be able to advise on the best way to lock down your network.
I hope this helps.
There should be a configuration site on your router, unless it's really out of date. Type the router's ip address (usually 192.168.0.1) into your web browser address field. You should be prompt for the username and password. Just consult your router's documentation.
Another thing I usually do is ping your networks ip range. If there is a reply, there's someone using it (make sure it's not your own computer). Another thing, don't use the built-in ping.exe, it's useless. Go google 'nmap', you will get what I mean.
does someone has a wardriving program for mac?
