Question about Computers & Internet
You must be connected wireless. I believe your in 1 of 2 situations.
First of all, when you connect to a wireless network, the network assigns you an ip address. When it's YOUR network you already have an ip address and if someone connects to you they would get that.
Either you have a wireless network that is un-secure and someone else nearby is connected to it. Or someone else in the area has an unsecured network and you have mistakenly connected to them.
You must setup your router properly with a network name (SSID) behind a secure firewall with WPA-2 security. WEP security can be hacked very easily.
Go to the website of the router you have and look for setup features or go to the manual. It's really not that hard if you have the time to do it and know one bothers you during it.
You can also go to,
