How do you know if someone's stealing your wireless?
I was wondering if there was a way to check if someone was stealing my wireless connection?
When I setup my router (it's both, wired and wireless) I put a 128-bit encryption security code, but I want to know if someone in my neighborhood is stealing my connection.

Ahh, that a great point. You can use the log.
But I'd sure as heck hate to have to browse through my log to see if anybody was connected. The guy I connected to, though, I don't even think he knew there was a configuration/admin page, because he still had the default password/SSID. So I changed the admin password. That way, even if he ever did suspect a freeloader (he never did), and wanted to check the logs to get their IP/MAC/whatever, he would have to reset the router to get in, thus clearing the logs. :)
But, since I'm assuming you're not an idiot and have a non-default password, the log-check should do just fine.
