Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook
I was wonder if im using cable internet service, is there anyway that other people can hack or steal my internet service from my pc?
If you use your cable internet service via an ethernet cable, basically plugged into it directly, then there is no way some one can access your internet. If you have a wireless router in your house, someone can use your router for a connection if they are within range. Unless you router is set up with a network key (password) in order to connect. A network key is set by you and only you have it, so if you set one write it down, if you lose it you will need another router in order to connect other machines in the future. Also, a network key only needs to be entered into a computer once, it's not a password that is entered every time you log on, the network configuration in the computer remembers it. Now keep in mind that "hackers" aren't interested in individuals (unless you're a major corporate ceo or somthing), and even if somebody does access the internet through your service that they cannot access or see anything on your computer that you don't allow them to see or access, that security is built in. Don't let Dateline scare you about "hackers", I saw that episode and they made a mountain out of a mole hill, bad. If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to ask.
