I have a Netgear WiFi router which was set up on my desktop PC which I'm not currently using. I am using a laptop and my brother is using his PC. I've just installed the trial version of "Who is on my WiFi" because I'm having a few niggles. e.g. my laptop won't connect eventhough I'm almost sitting on top of the WiFi box (not a problem I have elsewhere with the laptop so I'm assuming it's ok). Speed when connected has also deteriorated recently. Also today there was a message on my laptop about another computer using the same I.P. address - which I've never seen before.
A scan using "Who is on my WiFi" is showing three connections. I can identify my laptop and my brother's PC but I don't know what the third one is.
Would this be the Netgear box itself or do I have someone else using my service.
If the answer is that I do have someone else using my service how do I stop them?
I get that "same IP" message too, and googled around, and found it can be something that can happen when your laptop has been in hibernation while on wifi and then later wakes up. For a brief minute the router thinks you're two separate computers.
