The wireless light on my Netgear router is flashing on and off but I've no wireless devices connected. Could someone be using it? If so can I trace who and where? The range is 50m.

Ive set up WPA-PSK [TKIP] security.

I doubt it's being hacked if you have WPA encryption. You can check to be sure by going into the routers interface, under Maintenance on the left, click on Attached devices and check only your own PC/s are listed.

Mine used to do this, flash intermittantly...a firmware upgrade sorted it out, however I don't advise this unless you are confident in what you are doing.

If you don't use wireless, why don't you turn it off?
