I have been trying to figure this out for months. I have neighbors appearing on my Win 7 Home Computer. I have NO ROUTER and NO WIFI, yet they are appearing as other devices in my network. Their PC's and media sharing devices appear over and over and slow my connection completely to the point of my browser crashing sometimes. I have tried different firewalls but nothing seems to work except using PeerBlock and monitoring the IP addresses and individually blocking them, watching the neighbor disappear, only to reappear seconds later with a new IP address.
Even Belarc Advisor lists about 60-80 IP addresses as mine when they arent, and my IP isnt listed at all! I have a simple Clearwire modem without wireless capability, and no wireless internally on my PC, no way to transmit signal. I disabled Home Group and that seems to have helped, but I see them still trying to ping me or something on PeerBlock.

They are completely relentless and Clearwire Technicians couldn't even figure it out except to mention they got my mac address and are somehow using that to connect.

HELP PLEASE!! :wacko:

*pulls hair out*

Who ever can help me fix this, I owe you a world of gratitude!

Are you sure you do not have wireless? I see no other way that they could be connected to your network.

What is the make and model of your various routers/modems? How are you connected to the internet?

A little info on Clearwire:

How can I use my Clearwire connection in more than one place? Posted Image With Clearwire, you can connect to the Internet in more than one location. Just plug in and jump online anywhere within the Clearwire service area. You may also extend your Clearwire service to multiple users throughout the house. The Clearwire modem works with standard router and wireless access point equipment to create a local area network.

Posted Image If I share my Clearwire connection, can all computers be online at the same time?

Posted Image Using a router or wireless access point, multiple users can be online at the same time with no slow-down.

Posted Image What if my computer is set up in one room but the wireless signal is stronger in another?

Posted Image No problem — with optional accessories called ClearPlugsTM, you can set up the Clearwire® modem anywhere in the house, regardless of where your computer is located. ClearPlugs use existing wiring to extend the signal from the modem to your computer, without having to run cables through your house. You can also connect a wireless router to the Clearwire® modem and wirelessly connect your computer to that device.

Posted Image Is Clearwire mobile like a Wi-Fi connection?

Posted Image Clearwire is portable like Wi-Fi. With Clearwire, all you have to do is plug your Clearwire modem into an outlet, and into your computer. Unlike a typical Wi-Fi hotspot there are no additional access fees charged in order to use the service.

Posted Image How does Clearwire connect wirelessly?

Posted Image Clearwire uses state-of-the-art wireless technology to transmit signals to and from your modem on fully licensed and protected frequencies. Your connection is always on and always secure.

AND THIS:

How can I adjust the modem to receive the strongest signal possible? Posted Image Once you have found the room with the strongest signal, place the Clearwire modem in a location that is convenient for you. Fine-tune your Clearwire modem by pointing the back of the modem (the side without the logo) toward a window. Note the number of lights that blink. Then rotate the Clearwire modem by turning it to the left and right until you identify the position with the strongest signal. If you’d like further assistance, please contact a Customer Service Representative by sending an online support request or calling 888-CLEARWIRE (888-253-2794).

Ahh thanks. I missed the clearwire mention.

Are you connecting the clearwire modem directly to your computer or is there a router in between?

Are your neighbors that you are seeing also using clearwire?

Hi thanks for the reply!

I have a Gateway GT5654 and no router or wireless USB of any kind hooked up. To my best understanding I am not broadcasting a signal whatsoever, but can only guess that the neighbors have an IP scanner or some way of tapping into the Clearwire modem, even though it is ONLY connected directly to my PC.
The Clearwire technician mentioned something about tapping into my MAC address somehow as well?

I am so perplexed as to how in the world this is happening!

Here's a link to my computer specs from Cnet

Edit: Yes it seems when i look at the IP address' on WHOIS they look to mostly be Clearwire with a few that look to me like they might be iPhone's etc

This is going to be impossible to diagnose rtemotely, but my guess is that your clearwire router is not configured properly and people are able to connect to it.
