Go to solution

A very simple question - is there a quick way to ensure that my wireless is secure from unauthorised users connecting?

Its already secure, as its protected using a wireless encryption key. Unless you give somone else the key, they cannot connect to your wireless network.

Nothing to worry about, its just the firewall and IDS (Intrusion Detection System) doing its job by blocking connections from the Internet which are either invalid, or attempts to look for open ports.
