Friends: I have a wireless G ZIO router (WLB5254AIP) routing to 2 wired PCs and a wireless laptop. I suspect my signal is being stolen as my ISP is telling me I am downloading large amounts of GB. How can I tell who is using my bandwidth at any one time? Customer support from my router's manufacturer is very poor. Cable modem. Thanks for any help.

Go into the router config and set the range of IPs to the number of computers you have. For example, 192.168.10.1 to 192.168.10.4 would include the router, the 2 wired computers and 1 laptop, instead of the default *.*.*.1 to *.*.*.255

The easiest way to solve this issue is to simply enable WPA encryption with a strong key. Nobody will be stealing your wireless access, and the problem will be solved.

Thanks a lot for your feedback guys. I enabled a WEP key but I would still like to know if there is a way to see all users on my wireless BW at any one time. Cheers!!!!!!!

WEP is not nearly as secure as WPA, I'd go for that if your hardware supports it.

Yea i just read about how weak WEP is I recently enabled WPA2-PSK on my 2WIRE 2701HG-G

try the highest security and don't worry about speed it shouldn't slow you down unless I'm wrong

There is a difference in throughput using encryption, but if you're using decent wireless hardware and drivers, it should be minimal.

Thanks for the help guys. I have not seen any strange MAC addresses showing up under DHCP client info in my router software since I installed the WEP password. So I guess the password is working so far. Keep on smiling!!!
