Hi, I set up my wireless network connection yesterday with Sky and was shocked to see I also have a LiveBox-6300 connection there too in my Network Connetions. There is no signal from it and even if there were I woulnd't use it. In fact I'm trying to think who in my neighbourhood uses Orange Broadband.
What worries me more is that, if I can see theirs, can they likewise see mine and are they getting a signal from it? I am still a little concerned as to how secure I have made my wireless setup. I have changed the logon password to my router settings but not the Network Key which is still the one Sky provided me with.
If you have security set up on your router to "wep" or "wpa" then you will be fine. It does not matter that anyone can see your network. What matters is they cannot conect to it. If you want to be totally unseen, then untick the "broadcast my SSD" then this will hide you. If you do a google search for hiding your network you might find better ways to do it. Hope this helps you.
As I mentioned yesterday with WPA you are secure. The chances are that the other networks you can see are also secure, but they usually say "Security Enabled Network" unless they are simple WEP in which case it may not say. I can see 5 other network connections on mine all of my neighbours. In my options I can choose not to show other Networks, I don't know about Sky.
