    Exclamation find out if your wireless router has been hacked..

    • Find your setup disk or download the instructions from the manufacturers site.

    • login to the router using the manufacturers instructions. If you never setup security the settings are in the instructions.
    • If you cannot login, then you have probably been hacked as one of the first things hackers will do is change the admin password so you cannot easily see they have been there.

    • If you can login, find the TAB for status and or security.
    • Look for the "DHCP Clients" list.
    • If you see in the list, some computer names you do not recognize then your router has been used by others.
    • If you cannot get into the router using manufacture settings, or you changed the password and don't remember what it is. Most have a way of resetting back to factory specs.
    • Most have a reset button that you press and hold for 5-6 seconds OR Press and hold while powering it down and then back up.
    • When router resets to factory specs, Please add security and or add mac address filtering and change factory password

    It pays to change your password regularly. And if you make a change, make sure to enter a good password. Activate the best encryption option found in your router.

    Most routers will automatically encrypt them for you, so you don't need to worry about that too much.
