Greg, If my neighbours can get into my router they're welcome to leech my broadband.

But it's not that easy, and I think most of them have trouble selecting a decent TV channel

And Dennis turn your screen through 90 degrees Then he'll be saying yes in a new way

So do you think I should unplug the modem to?
BTW it's very healthy to take a vacation once and a while.

Yeah if they can crack my wpa2 very strong password their more than welcome to use it.

I put a password on my friend's router. Next morning an old lady knocked on the door asking that we turn her internet back on. I helped negotiate a nice monthly usage fee within her budget and gave her the password. I've wondered since then what else she might be pirating.

That is too funny.



She probably has a whole server farm full of warez.

Hi there
since I don't have any private stuff on my server I'm quite happy for anybody to leech the broadband while I am away from home --They'll need the password of course.

However where my server is based its inconceviable that people don't have broadband already -- the only people who might even consider it would be tourists etc but there's plenty of wifi etc all over the country.

If you don't need access to a remote computer you might as well turn it off but modern routers don't consume much power especially when there isn't any Internet activity going on.

Cheers
jimbo
