Hey all

I think this just has something to do with my anti virus but anyway heres my question:

I use Trend Micro PC-Cillin and we have wireless internet ad every 5 minutes our computer comes up with people trying to get on our network but the weird thing is, is that we have a WEP Password on it so I dont know how they got our password, whenever Trend Micro comes up oin our screen theres always someone who wants to access our router and I don't think that people in our neighborhood can afford to get wireless devices to go on the internet so would it just be Trend-Micro just giving us grief or do you think its really people trying to come onto our router?.  Cheers for reading this message.

Dunno about Trend Micro attempting to connect, but if you have a common set of computers on the network then use the MAC address filtering feature, this stops anyone accessing the network unless the have an authorised MAC address. Once you have that on unless you are paranoid about the possiblity of someone snooping on your traffic then turn the encryption off and get the 25% or so throughput back.
