I have Verizon dsl wireless internet.The freeloader Steve that lives 2 house down from me does not have internet service so he steals his internet service off my wireless.This slows my wifes and my computer to a crawl.Last year Steve had drinking and drug partys every night all summer long and no one on our block got any sleep because these partys went on sometimes till 6 AM with very load music.He does not work because he gets retard money from the state.The only handy cap I see in that he is a drunk that does not care about any one except himself.They had girls at these partys that were 12 and 13 years old doing sick acts on older men.The police wont do nothing.The other day he had the nerve to ask me if he could hook in to my cable tv and phone service along with asking to use my chain saw and lawn mower.He wont move because his grandfather owns the house and he get free rent.What can I do to stop him from using my wireless internet and stop him from stealing my cable tv.Could he already be taped into my cable tv and phone service.My phone service is with Vonage

Well you could try the very simple and extremly well known and common tactic of putting a security shield on your wireless. Don't give him the password key and he can't get in.

As for the phone and TV unless you see wires running from your house to his, he can't steal it.

Just open a web browser, enter your IP address of your wireless router and enter router password. Go into your menu and enable WPA or WEP encryption. Most routers will walk you right through this.

Yes ,she'll need the PW also.
Regarding the rest of your statements.
Call the cable company and inform them of his impending procurement of free cable.
Also might call child protective services and/or your local gov. office (Mayor,etc) about the parties with underage patrons.
Theres lots of resources to provide assistance,just look around.

Without securing your wireless network by password protecting it, you are allowing not only this neighbor but ALL your close neighbors as well as any passer-bys to gain access through your connection. If your connection seems extremely slow I wouldn't doubt that you have others in the neighborhood connecting on your dime. Heck, if my neighbors were kind enough to provide free internet service I would be tempted to use it too!

Putting a password on the router and enable security on the wireless access are two different things.

Do both.

WPA encryption is better than WEP. It'll be the WPA password or key that you'll need for your computers to give them access.

WHY won't the Police do anything? :confused:

If someone taps into your wired cable or phone line, just notify your service provider. They will handle prosecuting him.
If someone uses your wireless service, you have to try harder to protect it because he isn't technically breaking the law. You are putting the service out on the public airwaves, so it becomes your responsibility to protect it.
Wireless internet is much like if you took your cash, climbed up on your roof, and tossed it out on a breezy day. Would you expect finders to leave it alone?

My guess is the police wont do anything because he is being watched to charge him with a big crime.A guy drives by his house alot of times,always driving a different car,looking in his back yard.Im sure he is a police officer looking for info.

Sounds like the kind of guy that needs his azz kicked real good. Use 64 bit WEP encryption and that will keep him off your wireless. I feel your pain because I have a freeloader living off the retard money in my cul-de-sack always begging all the neighbors for stuff. I've even seen him picking up half smoked cigs out of the back of my truck before (yes I smoke and sometimes throw my butts in my truck bed...). The only reason I haven't kicked his azz around yet is the fear of going to jail...

I dont know much about computers.It took me a half hour the other day to figure out the PW is short for pass word.I dont know what an ssid number is.Also the image size on my computer keeps changing to a larger size.I use my ad aware progam and spybot and some times my image size goes back to where it was, but some time windows has to repair it.Spybot has found hackers in my computer a few time.My wife is a school teacher and she keeps her school kids grades in her computer and at different times of the year she will download them into the school computer.Could I have a hacker tring to get into my wifes kids school grades.Any ideas on what is going on with this image resizing thing.

350 malibu,I know what your saying.This is the second round for me.Before he moved in his older brother lived in that house and he was a window peaker.I would be painting in the garage so I would leave my 71 Cuda outside all night and he was crawling on the roof of the car looking in my house windows.We could not prove he was the window peeker so the police would not pick him up even after my dog tracked him into his own backyard.We finaly got him to leave after he was caught uranating in his front yard.He was caught about 10 times but it was dark outside and one day he did it and it was still light outside and we had a positive id for police.When he moved out his younger brother moved in and he is twice as bad.He has drinking partys all night long keeping everyone up on this block because of the noise.After his partys,half full beers are all over his yard and my Great Dane gets into them.Have you ever delt with a sick and drunk Great Dane?I have talked to him about this but what good does it do to talk to some one like that.I plan on making some big, thick, juicy, Elax hamburgers for his dogs and give him back some of what he given me.How would I set up 64 bit web encryption

Exactly, just turn off the modem when you aren't using it. A password would be better. I bet there's someone you know who could help you get it set up right.

Don't punish his dogs for him being a jerk. The dog didn't choose him as an owner. Who knows what a person like that would do to the dog if the dog couldn't control his/her bowel.
