Wireless connections.

  The Dazza 15:20 19 Dec 2008

I was talking to someone the other day who told me it is possible for someone to connect to your wireless internet connection i.e. one of your neighbours, my questions are:

1)What are the security implications with this? Can they see which sites I am browsing i.e. bank details or can I see theirs? (which I don't want lol)

2) If I was downloading something or if they were downloading something would it reduce my download speed or there's?

3) Could I find out who it is if I wanted to?

Loads of responses welcome!

1) If they have the know how...yes

2) Yes as they would be stealing your bandwidth though depends how often and how much.

3) Yes,your routers configuration pages should/maybe show there mac address that you can block easily.

Basically to stop any of this,secure your router immediately.
