actually if you have aol network magic you can see who is connected to your router and see all their system information and track them as an intruder and they can also block you from accessing it using zone alarm pro.

If it is your router they are accessing there are a couple of simple solutions.

SSID Broadcast: In the router in the original post the SSID of the neighbours router is [b]Belkin54g[/b]

This is being broadcast over the airwaves to everyone who is in range.

If you switch off your SSID Broadcast (more than likely a simple checkbox in the router web interface) and give it a unique name, it will not appear if anyone tries a Scan.
If you want to connect to it, you will have to state the name of it in your conection wizard (unlikely someone can guess it if you give it a unique name).

Access List: In the router Web Interface you will see an access list (or a variation of the same thing). these are normally nominated as the MAC address of the Network Card.
You can enable this list and fill in the Mac Address of your cards (either written on the side or goto Run=>Cmd=>ipconfig /all to find out)

This will only allow the devices in the list to connect. I like this method as you know someone can still SEE your (Free) internet, but the cucking robbing funts can't get to it!
