how can i detect if someone is using my WIFI?
Depends on what device you're on. Computer? Phone? Tablet?
I am actually quite interested to know who is using my WiFi too. I am using a computer.
You can use Command Prompt (in elevated mode)
and type in:
Hi, I figured it out that you can find out with few methods.
1) Login into your router's default webpage. Go google up your router's default page and login, there will be a client list for you to see who is currently connected to your wifi
2) Use applications such as Zenmap or Cain&Abel [Go google for it]
3) Use wireshark. See if there is any suspicious IP address appearing(make sure your wireshark is in promiscuous mode
It really depends on your router... every router is dfferent. What model is yours?
You don't need any of that. Most modern routers tell you now, they will even log any connection made, and then you can ban the MAC Address.
That's what I state in 1), to see the Log, you still have to login to the Router's default gateway/webpage.
guys please don't bump threads from 2012...
but yes you can view that info by logging into your Router
