Currently, my laptop is connected to wireless internet that I'm not suppose to connect to.

Somehow, I figured the password to the wireless internet connection, not the router (still don't know the password for

router), and I want to use this wireless internet 24/7. However the problem is that, I don't want the administrator of the

network; such as router owner, to know that I'm using their internet. Is there any way for me to hide my laptop

from showing on their router Log, or their current wireless networking devices.

I appreciate your answers

1. What you are doing is illegal. You will not be getting any help here.

2. You cannot hide your computer.

3. You will get caught, in time, and hopefully, charged.

4. (I wish I had a big red button here)

1) Naughty, naughty, very very naughty. The technical term is "leeching", and leeching other people's wireless networks is a criminal offence in most Western countries, even more so with deliberate intent.

2) If you do not want your computer to show up in the router logs, the easy solution is don't connect to it. An even easier solution is to get your own wireless internet, then see how you feel when other people start leeching off your network.

lilra01,

What you are doing is illegal, and the fact that you would ask such dumb question should be illegal.
