    The most common way that dsl bandwidth is stolen is an open wireless connection people connect and download for free. the other is not to change the default SSID and password, there published on the net, change the default passwords and the ID and your secure. Oh and dont use WEP encryption its already broken.

    If you have your internet on Wifi, make sure it's secured with WPA2 Security with WPS turned off. If WPS is turned on, it can be hacked quite easily. (I may have hacked a neighbors WPA2 security passcode in 43 seconds due to them having a default WPS code of 12345670) Some routers counter this by using a setting that only allows a few passcodes before it locks it, but to be sure, make sure it's turned off.

  • Why do people steal anything? Because they don't want to pay for it.
