Do you have WEP or WPA enabled? What wireless hardware do you have?

lol - credit to the guy for trying it on - youneed to password protect your wireles with WEP or WPA - kind of mandatory to stick a password on really - it is the easiest security and very effective. If you suspect he is hacking your password somehow you may need to place mac address validation on there - again pretty easy to do you just need to know where to look


anyway you should atleast have a password on there !

Apart from enabling WPA security also turn off SSID Broadcast too it should just be a tick box within your setup screen under wireless settings
untick it and make sure you hit save settings

If your system has already been compromised i would also recomend changing the name of the router (and within your wireless settings ofcourse) and then turning of ssid as mentioned above.
