How can neighbors use my wifi connection?!


How the hell are my neighbors able to connect to my wireless network?! I have signal problems inside the house, so how can someone in a neighboring house get a signal?! I kept wondering where the hell my bandwidth was going, then I discovered they were using my router! :eek: I'm not even sure which neighbors were using my connection, but it must have been someone in a nearby house.
I tried to connect to their router and couldn't get a signal. They weren't using encryption either. I had to encrypt my network to keep them off. The sad thing is, I doubt they even knew they were using someone else's router instead of their own.

oh thats easy. you just do a scan for routers on your computer and click the "connect" button, no permission from the router owner is needed. McDonalds sometimes has this and i hook up to thiers with my PSP all the time.

Range/distance is the issue. I can't connect to the router from the other side of this house, yet these neighbors were able to connect to my router from a completely different house.

I knew it was possible for someone else to use it, I just didn't think it would really happen because I can barely get a connection from places in my own house. :eyepop:

802.11b
I have a newer 802.11g router too, which is supposed to be faster, but sadly that means the range isn't as good. G routers seem to sacrifice range for speed... which kinda defeats the purpose of wifi. I'm not saying speed is a bad thing... but wifi should have a good range or it's a bit pointless.
