  • they broke into my wifi router again

    Oh I hate that !

    Our internet service slowed to a crawl. Then I couldn't even do an ADMIN login, so I had to reset it and set up new passwords. ARGHHH !

    This happens about every 6 months.

    You need to secure your router. That old WEP protocol is garbage, you should be using WPA-2 at this point. Most wireless routers have the ability to lock access down to specific MAC addresses. My laptop and my wife's laptop are the only 2 MAC addresses that are able to use my wireless service. I guess somebody could clone a hardware MAC address, but it wouldn't be easy or worth it.

    Reprehensible as it was, gassing was a conventional and accepted method for execution at the time. It is a stretch to equivocate the two.

      I noticed my internet has also slowed to a crawl... Coincidence? or more Trojans at work?

      According to this, out of 38 internet servers in North America, 16 are currently down.
