Question about Apple MacBook Pro Laptop Computer with Intel Duo Core 15.4 Inch PC Notebook
I live in an area with a lot of differnt networks and a lot of people steal network space. Thats actually cool by me, but I do worry about y security. One guy has appeared on my network list and he seems to sit there all the time. How do I control who is on the network and how do I check what they are doing?
We need to first determine what type of WiFi device you have in your home because each has a little different method of creating security. It would be best to create a security code for your WiFi connection that way only the people you give the code to can have access. Keep in mind there are different types of security codes to deal with. The more basic types of security may be easier to decode by a "hacker" but allow the least amount of work by your own computer. Whereas, the more complex security means much more privacy for you but a little more work for your laptop.
There's also the suggestion of making your WiFi "name" something clever and non-guessable, connect your MacBook to it, save it as a preferred network and then disable the "radio" on your wireless router. this will allow your WiFi network to continue working, but it is not constantly broadcasting your network name to your neighbors. They will now need the actual NAME of your network PLUS the security code you've enabled.
Many remote support technology companies, including me, are able to use your Internet connection to connect to your computer and then secure and configure your WiFi device for you if you're not comfortable doing the things I've outlined.
