  1. Recently , i installed Air snack version 1.5.0 . when it started it found unfriendly mac addresses. i see the name of my computer as one of them . there are two others that are written in numbers. how can i verify that there are no other computers hacking my internet.

    Especially that i have a wireless router, recently i done a WPA settings and enabled it.
    before setting it there was 5 unfriendly addresses but after setting it , they became 3.

    I can take screen shot of my airsnack version if it helps

    please help , thx

    Could it be the MAC address of your router and MAC address of a different network card in your pc.

    There are 3 addresses:
    1. a big number and the name of my computer beside it
    2. a big number and "router" beside it
    3. a big number and "router" beside it

    um okk i guess by big number you must mean the ip address, since mac address are numbers and letters since hex.
    Are the numbers like this 192.168.2.150? is an exmaple

    if so,
    1 = Ip address of your computer
    2 = IP address of your Router on LAN
    3 = Public IP address i imagine.

    I would say your secure and dont have unwanted people on your network. WPA is good and not that easy to hack into like wep.
