Yes WPA and WPA2 are the best ones to use as WEP keys are very easy to crack..

Did you customise the router from default settings when installing it at first? if not, diffrent routers use their brand names as the user name and the password is always 1-5 0r 5 0s.......most of the thieves know this.

@pacan101

1. View the active connections first.
2. View MAC Address useing networking tool provided that I made.
3. save the reports and post them up
4. Note! Anti Virus Systems and Windows Defender will see this program as a threat becuase it uses commands from command prompt but it is safe the other reason is becuase it does not contain a security signeture and is not published I am working together some of the AV companys to get my applications excepted.

well, I didn't install it, the ISP did. I had no say in the matter what they did.

If you have WPS, turn it off (and even then, check that your router isn't vulnerable.)

Contrary to popular belief, it doesn't matter if you're using WEP, WPA, WPA2 or whatever else - if you're running WPS, then you're vulnerable.
