    Get inside your router with an internet browser (192.168.0.1, etc.) and check devices, home network and such.

    I really nice program to see all connections going on is "ether ape". you can install it using your regular software center. (It's a graphical network monitor, so a bit more user friendly than the terminal ones)

    or just type:

    sudp apt-get install EtherApe

    Try it out

    Figuring out who is connected to your network can depend on your router.

    On my Netgear router's admin panel, it's "Attached devices". On my modem/router (a "freebie" by Thomson/Speedtouch from my ISP), its on "Home Network"

    call tech support for the manufacture of your router.. start a trouble ticket and you will have faster than through ubuntu forums.

    As for etherape, run with sudo (sudo etherape) command and stop the capture. Select the interface (NIC) to capture from and start the capturing again. But this will show only systems using the network right then (browsing, pinging, etc.). If the device is only listening it will go unnoticed. But any active connection will show, type of connection (protocol) and source/destination.

    To search for devices listening, use something like nmap or angry ip scanner. These will show devices listening on your LAN and depending features enable you can get OS type, hostname and open ports. You just have to enter the range (Angry IP Scanner) or the broadcast address with subnet bits (nmap). So a typical home network range would be 192.168.1.1/24.

    You concerned about unauthorized devices?

    On my Linksys router web page, there is an Administration tab.

    Under that, there's a Local Network tab.

    On that, there's a DHCP Client table button.

    Clicking that lists out all the local network addresses assigned by the router.

    Look to see if you have something similar.

    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
