My son who is in shared accommodation recently started using broadband. He has found that although his computer is not on his broadband usage is being consumed. It seems to me that someone is tapping into this. What can he do to stop this?

My friend has no computer or broadband connection to his house but his grandson and friends come round regularly and say they have a choice of broadband connections all free in air!! Several people must be operating routers with no security set up.
As was said above, just because you are wired in to the router doesn't mean that it isn't wirelessly operating as well. That's what I have, but give code to visitors who need to stay in touch when they are bored with my company, usually sprogs and partners.
