Possible Duplicate: How to see who is using my wifi
I have a simple home network (DSL Modem, Linksys wireless router, Vista PC, and a couple of XBox360s).
I know that my DSL speed is annoyingly inconsistent, but recently my home network speed seems very sluggish, even for communication between the PC and XBox (I use the XBOXen as Windows Media Center extenders).
Using my meager home equipment, is there any way to tell if there are other devices on the network, slowing things down? (Pesky neighbors?) Or to tell if something else weird is going on?
Wireless is set to use WPA (Going from memory, I think that's right. Its the most secure option my router had available). I'm also set to not broadcast the network name, you have to type in the network name and password to connect. I do use the wireless for my iPhone, and for the occasional laptop that happens to visit.

In the administration screen of the router, you can view currently connected devices (and normally their MAC address, too, and the assigned IP). You can check this to see if there are more devices than you have setup.
If you are using wireless, it is more likely that the speed issue is signal interference than someone leeching your connection, especially if you have security setup.
If you tell me what model linksys I can link instructions for the admin screen in that model.

我必须在家中获得型号。如果它有帮助，它是蓝色的；）但是我想我已经在某处有进入管理工具的说明。 BradC 2010-09-08 14:50:41Z, License: CC BY-SA 2.5
好的，那么这应该很容易。如果您可以设置密码保护，则应该可以执行此操作。我确实认为，问题将出在干扰上，而不是在渗出上。如果存在渗水问题，则可以关闭SSID广播，除非您知道名称，否则它会使网络不可见，或者可以启用MAC地址过滤（仅允许您明确列出的设备加入网络）。祝你好运！ JNK 2010-09-08 14:52:12Z, License: CC BY-SA 2.5
你在说什么 BradC 2010-09-08 14:59:58Z, License: CC BY-SA 2.5
哦，如果一切都连接好了，那就另当别论了。步骤1将检查是否渗水，然后，您可能需要查看电缆或连接是否还有其他问题。有时CAT5不足也会导致这种问题。 JNK 2010-09-08 15:01:54Z, License: CC BY-SA 2.5
I'll have to get the model number at home. It's Blue, if that helps ;) But I think I already have instructions somewhere for getting into the admin tool BradC 2010-09-08 14:50:41Z, License: CC BY-SA 2.5
OK good, then it should be pretty easy. If you were able to set up the password protection you should be able to do this. I really think the issue is going to be with interference, though, and not with leeching. If leeching IS an issue, you can turn off SSID broadcast, which makes your network invisible unless you know the name, or you can enable MAC address filtering, which will only allow devices you explicitly list to join the network.

Oh, if everything is wired then thats a different story. Step 1 will be check for leeching, after that you may need to see if you have another issue with a cable or connection. Sometimes a short in CAT5 can cause this kind of issue, too JNK 2010-09-08 15:01:54Z, License: CC BY-SA 2.5
