Is there a program that monitors and displays 'who' is on your wireless Internet signal that one may not be aware of? Like, the ability to see when someone that you don't know is accessing your locked wireless? Going on and off.

Use your Network Summary. Type the modems IP into your address bar.

Moved to Security Discussions.

I use:


sudo nmap -sP 192.168.1.0/24

to get a quick list of ip addresses in use on my network. Desktop and servers on my network all have static ip addresses, so the only addresses that will be different are the wireless computers which use DHCP.

If you are graphically incline you an install zenmap from the repositories.

For cariboos' code to work you will need to install nmap:


sudo apt-get install nmap

If you enter the command not code, as is, Ubuntu will tell you, you have to install nmap first, and even tell you how to do it.

Your network summary should show you any computers that have been "allowed".

To look at your Network Summary type the modem or routers IP address into the address bar of the internet browser you use.
