Hi @akku


Welcome to the Community Forums!


With securing your internet connect you need to ensure you have a password set up on your modem.


What type of modem are you using?

Re: Using internet without any authorozation

Just having the serial number will not give him access.. 


He would have to have the password you set on the modem.   OR he would have to have physical access to the modem to plug a computer wired into it.

Beyond setting a password for the wireless... which should prevent them from getting on that way (unless they figure it out).
The only othe way is to prevent them from physically accessing the modem.
(as with that, they could always do a full reset to reset the wireless password on you, etc)
