I think one of my neighbors is on my wireless network
 
I think one of my neighbors is on my wireless network. Unfortunately enabling WEP is not an option (some thing to do with my work). Is there a way to see the IP addresses of everyone on my network? That way I can see if there is anyone I don't want on it.

--Thanks

If you have a linksys router you can login to it, then go to the DHCP table.

you should be able to go into your router settings and see. find out what your ip address is (192.168.X.X). you should be able to turn on MAC filtering to reject any other MAC address that is not yours.

I know that IP addresses change if the power is lost to the router but MAC addresses can never be changed is that correct?

a MAC address never changes.

fearlessfreap24 11-20-2005 05:37 PM

that is correct. MAC addresses are assigned by the manufacturer of the network interface.

I'm logged into the router but how do I get to the DHCP table?

fearlessfreap24 11-20-2005 05:44 PM

in About this Mac it says the MAC address under ethernet, does Airport have the same MAC address?

fearlessfreap24 11-20-2005 05:47 PM

it should

Your mac's ethernet and Airport adapters have two different addresses. When you look at the System Profiler and click on the "Network" line, you'll see all your network interfaces at the top. The one that says "AirPort" is the one you're interested in. The other ones (built-in Ethernet, Firewire) do not apply to the MAC you're going to put into your router.

And why would you want a PM about James Paul McCartney and Richard Starkey? :-)

if you are using a linksys, under teh wireless tab there should be a link to MAC address filtering. set it up to where it will only accept MAC addresses in the list.

Benjamindaines 11-20-2005 06:26 PM

I got MAC address filtering set up and everything works. Thanks

Im trying to find my DHCP table on my linksys rounter and I can't find it. Can someone tell me exactly where it is? Im logged in and I'm looking around but can't seem to find it.

fearlessfreap24 11-20-2005 06:36 PM
