Security Concerns? =/

Hey All

 

I have just noticed that I have 2 'Unknown' Devices with their MAC address in their name using Static IP addresses on my hub,

 

I have removed them and changed my security settings from 'WPA and WPA2' to just WPA2 and lenghtened my encryption key and also removed my XBOX 360 from DMZ mode,

 

Anything to be concerned about?

 

=/

 

Cheers. AH.

 

Will it also have something to do with my connection dropping as well? (As I always moan about Smiley Wink) ?

I wouldn't be all that worried about "unknown" devices.  I've got three connected to my Home Hub at the moment.  One is the BT Vision box, and the other two are Comtrent powerline adaptors.

Obviously you shouldn't have anything connected to your Homehub that you did not authorise to be there. Were the wirelessly or Lan connected?  Are you sure they were not something you had connected such as a bluray player, tv, mobile phone or such like.

 

Changing your passkey should prevent anyone without it connecting.
