I have noticed a huge jump in download usage. At times i look at my ISP's daily download graph and noticed that big usage is occuring at times when my family is on.

I have a D-Link 300 router with 2 lan and 3 wireless comps feeding off it. I have Mac Address Filtering enabled and have just enabled Wep Wireless Securit - basic (128bit), as well as hidden the wireless system to the outside.

I have a log here of what looks like access to my system, but it/they show nowhere in my active session reports.

If anyone can suggest a way of excluding this intruder (if it is one) i would be eternally grateful!

Atm i am using my monthly adsl 12gig d/l usage in the first 8-10 days, then i am slowed to 56k for the rest of the months... a lil' annoying!

Thamks in advance

Old Fart.

I suggest you upgrade to WPA security with a strong key. That will stop any intruder in their tracks. A 20 character random key will do the trick. :) WEP is anemic protection.

Cheers Johnwill,

I will try that. So that "Chillirun" is an outsider bypassing my security then?

I truthfully have no idea who Chillirun is, but it looks odd. I just make sure my network is secure and I don't have to deal with this kind of issue.

THANK YOU!

Your advice seems to have worked... No MoreCHILLIRUN!

Btw... do you know of a network internet traffic monitor that can track usage through my wireless router to the individual users in my family?

If it also had a function were I could allocate a quota to each of my kids and once that is reached, restrictions could be imposed.

I have searched on the net and all of them seem too advanced for me, they are more geared to business use.

If you could name a couple i could look into i would be very grateful.

Ol' Fart.

I don't think you'll find such a traffic monitor. The way standard SOHO routers work precludes such monitoring, you'd have to have a much more advanced router/firewall to have such capabilities.
