    I was trying to fix a wireless problem in my kids Vista run laptop. I
    was in the Networks box when another PC showed up on my network. I
    clicked on it and it asked for user name and password and I could not
    access it. The name on it was HCooper-XP and its workgroup was
    tkccommunications. I pulled the plug on the modem and it went away,
    of course, along with my kids name he assigned to his computer. I
    plugged the modem back in and about 10 min later it popped back up. Is
    someone accessing his computer. My XP machine was plugged into the
    same modem and I couldn't see a thing in the Networks window just my
    connection.

    I use 128 bit encryption my wireless is very secure. My daughters
    wireless card is busted and won't operate anyway. I was plugged into
    the router directly when I saw the intruder.
