Re: wireless checking

I had a quick Google and found this page where you can download a flash tutorial for your router. It does have a bit about access blocking for an individual or range of PC’s based on protocols. Don’t know if it will help you.

Re: wireless checking

You can set them up to connect via a proxy if your pc is always on and that can log everything they do get a free one from

or get whats transferring free from
http://www.wfshome.com/software.htm
you can then sniff everything they do

Re: wireless checking

Did you get any further with this Slick?
I have notice that my off peak usage was 6MB on one occasion and my PC & Laptop were both switched off at he time.  Maybe I am paranoid but I have now changed the SSID and the WPA password (the SSID never has been broadcast and MAC address filtering is on too).
