I was reading a webpage and I noticed that the wireless base station wireless activity LED light was blinking.
My laptop was off.
I unplugged the base station for a couple minutes, then plugged it back in.
Within a couple minutes the light was blinking again, so I unplugged it and set up the base station security.
I had reset everthing yesterday morning and had not retset the security features.
I pulled out the laptop and fired it up and I opened up the network program and found another network (my base station was still off)!
I was able to connect to it with no problems.
I guess I have a neighbor who has an unsecured wireless connection since I have been able to connect to it for the past day.
I figure they were hitting my wireless signal when their signal was too weak.
I reset my security on the base station and I have not noticed any activity since then.
With wireless it can be easy to hit your neighbors stuff. Watch what you share on the network.
No network set-up.
The base station plugs into an out port of the router and the desk-top plugs into another out port of the router.
No file sharing or print sharing is allowed on either computer.
Thanks for the tip!
