Rogue PC attached to my network???

  catho 18:16 01 Apr 2009

When I view the network on my PC there is a second PC shown named Thomson PC described as a Samba server. Do I have a problem?

Thanks for your help.

Have you got WEP security on your router?

The Thompson Samba Server is part of the BT Home Hub so it is no threat to your security

Forgot to add Thompson is hub manufacturer and samba server is Linux network software which is built into the hub(program which runs inside hub,ie boots the hub into life)samba allows linux and windows to communicate with each other network wise

You should use WPA not WEP
