I have a Netgear 3400v3 router. I am certain that someone nearby is leaching off my wifi. The android # and MAC address shows on the Netgear console. Rather than have a verbal and possibly physical confrontation with these moochers ( I am just about certain who they are), I would like to block them from my resources with the Netgear router itself.
I have consulted the Netgear console/dashboard online and cannot discover how to do this. I have read several advice postings with topics like third party software to going into command prompt. I am thoroughly confused. At present I am trying to download the latest version of Netgear's firmware, hoping it would provide some help, but it seems to be stalled out at 43%. Can it really be that complicated? Is there something more simple I can do? I have a monthly data allowance which was too quickly used up this month. Worse thing about it all is I KNOW these people and have asked them to stop freeloading. They (its a couple) think they are being crafty and I won't know I am being used. I have offered to up the data allowance if they would pay their share but they cannot seem to afford this despite obvious frivolous things I have observed them doing.
Bleeping has always come to my rescue with life threatening (computer life) problems. I should always remember to come here first.
Thanks and Kind Regards
PS. Granddaughter has Phone and iPad which have been eliminated as the culprit.
