Default Can family see what I do using wireless internet?

You should never use a public wifi hot spot that isn't password protected.
My home wireless network is, but I never thought if my family could see what I'm doing. Can they? If so how can I prevent this? To be honest they probably wouldn't know how

If they have access to the router, they can technically see all the traffic going through it. Even if your router can't do it natively, they could install some other firmware which would log the traffic.

Hmm my question is what are you guys doing, that you don't want your family to find out what you are doing. Thank's to god I went to school for this so when my son try's to pull a fast one on me I'll be ready....

^Agreed. If you are worried about being caught, stop doing it.

I will say that technically they can check if they know how to by watching the traffic on the router. It's more likely that they will just check the computer history and/or have software on the computer that monitors it.

They cannot see what you are actually doing on web pages with a router.
They will need to use a key logger or spyware on your computer or if your computer is part of a network which is under Administration control then they can monitor you and know what you are doing, then again the average home user would be limited in this knowledge.

Why don't you just password protect your Computer.

First I want to say that I highly doubt that alot of families would do that. It's like sneaking around in somebodys room when they are not there. Secondly most won't have the knowledge of how to monitor it anyway. Don't be to paranoid. You'll be fine
