10-21-2006, 12:38 PM #1Is someone hijacking my wireless network?
I am on a wireless network... it is WPA protected.... But I think someone (maybe a neighbor) might be connected to my network. How do I find out for sure???
On XP (parallels) my Zone Alarm alerts every couple minutes that it has "blocked and attempt to access the internet".
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Literally the only thing I have done on XP (parallels) is download Zone Alarm, and Spybot... nothing else... at all.
I'll probably just delete the the XP/Parallels partition.
Anything special I need to do when getting rid of it???

I'm with DevilBoy. I think you have a piece of software that you may have selected "Deny Access and always remember this setting" at one point or another. Whenever it tries to access the internet it alerts you. Since i'm on my Mac at the moment i cant remember where its at but if you go into the zone alarm settings it will give you a list of programs and if they are allowed to access the internet or not.
If you want to get rid of your XP partition just run the Boot Camp program again and select Restore. this will delete the XP partition and give it all back to the Mac.
