Wireless network ?'s

My father has a wireless network and I just recently put my pc on it aswell and when I first was on I could just barely pick up the signal. Now I'm showing a second network in my signal range.

Does this me that someone else in my area has a wireless network that I'm seeing or could it be someone trying to hop on our network to use our's.

Is there a way I can view whos on ours and moniter activity.

Just new to the wireless thing and would like to learn a bit about it.

Jon

You're seeing someone else's wireless LAN. If your router supports it, you can view who is connected along with security settings. Best place to start is by reading the manual for your router.

'91 Camaro RS: Stock.

2010 Camaro SS: Hell yes.
