    Is there a way I can "talk" to unknown computers accessing my wireless network? Possibly thru net send or something else? Also, can an unknown computer just use my internet connection or can they access shared files I have within the network.

    Running windows XP service pack 2. And I have a Linksys WRT54G wireless router.

    I don't think this is one of my neighbors, so I'd like to ask the person who they are. I know I should just take security measures possibly MAC filtering, WEP, or WPA. However, the PC I currently use doesn't do anything important, and I don't access important information from here (i.e. banking, credit card stuff). I guess I just want to take the sneaky approach. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Joe
