How can I see who else might be connected to a specific wireless network? In my area they are now offering free Wifi downtown, but I am kind of paranoid about going on when there are a lot of others on...How can I view the other users, or at least get a count?


Friends, help! A guinea-pig tricked me!

There are ways to do this (most commonly by using Network Neighborhood) but it'll depend on a lot of other factors. I don't have a WiFi network handy to check this on.

As long as your security is good there's usually not any issue with who's online and who's not. And, you can change your computer name if you'd like even more anonymity.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
