I have a feeling someone was sharing my Internet connection so I set my security to WPA. Is there a way I can tell if anyone is sharring my bandwidth? Thanks

When you try to connect to your router (using 192.168.x.x on a web browser), there should be a tab indicating which and how many computers are connecting to your router. I won't be able to help you find which exactly that tab would be because each router's admin page are different.

For example, this Dlink admin page (for Dlink routers) have this DHCP tab where it also lists all clients/computers that connects to the router. (check the bottom of this picture)

So if you have the same thing as the above image and you notice that there are more computers connected to your router than there should be, then someone is stealing your bandwidth.
Make sure you constantly check this DHCP tab if you have it just in case someone or another one is stealing your bandwidth.
