email from ISP: close to the broadband limit, again.

checked usage. 2.41GB, *today*

The 'puter has only been on since 7pm.

Hmm. Strange things happenin' at the Circle K.

I *had* been trying to download a zip file of back issues of JPG magazine, which was taking forever, so unless it was just repeatedly trying to get the 220MB+ file and failing?

Other than that, is there a way of seeing *what* my 'puter has been doing for the last 3 hours?

yup. I noticed that it was still trying to download it when K was finally dragged from the 'puter at about 10:30.

So unless she's taken a healthy interest in *cough* streaming media *cough*, something is Afoot.

hmm. Wondering if it was my neighbour - I'd turned off the WEP to connect the Wii up after christmas - I know I get his wireless popping up from time to time, and I did have a random box in my connected list on the router

Hmm, you have turned it back on I assume. Mums new Wii is working fine with WEP. ( I belive it will work with stronger protection but one part of her network needs updating to use the stronger stuff. :-( )

indeed I have!

The wii didn't work with the WEP enabled in my pre-christmas trial, but I didn't have long to try it and couldn't be arsed faffing on. Now it's all set up properly, I can give it another go.

Oddly the Wii would connect to the router, whereas the DS wouldn't - and the DS wouldn't connect to the Wii when trying to download games (which it should), even with WEP turned off.

One of the mysteries. The need for a secure network outweighs the need to play online games on the wii, for now.

My wii and encryption work in harmony ok.
I also have a whitelist of Mac addresses in my router as a extra layer.
If your Mac aint down you aint coming in.

Yes I know Macs can be spoofed. But I don't think any of my neighbours are up to that. 1 guy thinks he is but he is possibly up to t'internet for dummies level

pondering further, it could be neighbour's son downloading stuff. It's all locked down now anyway. I need to have a proper tinker with it tonight as it was gone midnight when I fired the Wii up to check it could connect.
