  • Trace IP Address

    Maybe some of my Brothers ans Sisters who are more technologically advanced can help me with this...

    I currently use HughesNet as my service provider and use a router in my home. I keep getting alerts that a certain IP address has signed onto my network. Although they are unable to get into my computer I would like to find out if this is one of my neighbors piggy-backing off my router. Can anyone tell me how to find the location/identity of a an IP address?

    Thanks,
    DJ

    while I am unable to answer the trace question, I would seriously suggest password protecting the network to make it secure.

      Yes password protect it or you could really screw them up by doing this:

      Turn your wifi piggybackers' internet upside down

      There is something I want to get off my chest. It's about that summer, when you went away to community college. I got an offer to do Playgirl Magazine, and I did it. I did a full spread for Playgirl Magazine. I mean spread man, I pulled my butt apart and stuff. I was totally nude. it was weird, I... I mean you probably didn't hear about it because I went under the name of Mike Honcho. But I just wanted you to know that. If you can hear me, if it got into your brain somehow. That I spread my buttcheeks as Mike Honcho.

        Google the following terms...."WHOIS xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" X's being the IP address you are picking up. It will bring a number of free whois sites which do a reverse DNS query and with the information supplied you will see who the provider is for that IP. You will probably find it's your own carrier if it's a piggy back, for you are the provider in that case, and you would be looking at your own outward facing IP. It might just be someone pinging you looking for a hole in your network, or they are advertising something, perhaps a peer to peer node. Ya never know, but that WHOIS query can get you started. And if your network is not password protected, you might well put a sign in your yard advertising free wireless...for you are certainly giving it away.

          Thanks for the tips and the good advice from all of you. I password-protected my wi-fi today, but I am still having trouble with the "WHOIS" Google search. I will keep fooling with it until I figure it out. Thanks again Brothers!
