I think this statement might be confusing you: "My neighbor set up her own wireless network with me through my router." That was not an accurate fact, but an assumption that she did it without my knowledge wirelessly because I wasn't protected and didn't know it. I did not authorize/allow/offer any use of my internet with her, I think she piggybacked because I was not protected. Like I admitted, I know nothing
about wireless and don't want to know, but apparently I HAVE to learn some, enough to protect myself, anyway. I know there was a card in the computer because I could see others' networks before
I started using the router, but I attempted to disable it when I saw others' networks. Apparently, I succeeded. I don't have a clue, honestly.
Anyway, I downloaded and ran the program...it says no adapters available, nothing on the screen. I went into the router (a linksys wireless G WRT5G V2) and enabled the wireless with the unique wireless password Verizon set up for me (which, btw, I think is their "standard", but the key/password was unique to me, kinda) and the light you mentioned on the router came on but still nothing was visible in Wi-Fi Inspector. I attempted to setup a wireless connection through network and sharing, and it said I was connected, again nothing showed up in the Inspector. Like I said, Verizon said they disabled the wireless in the router, though I couldn't begin to tell you all I saw when she did that, but she did about 6-8 steps. I refreshed, checked settings, looked for adapters available after every step but nothing showed. I have gone back into the router and disabled wireless and light on the router went out. Again, nothing shows on the Inspector. The screen never changed from the screen shot shown, even when I enabled the router and attempted to set up a network through network and sharing. Network and sharing said there was an error when it attempted to hookup wirelessly, I told it to hook up to the internet anyway, and it said I was connected, but it didn't show in Inspector (I am hardwired with the router).
I assume (there goes that word again, huh?) that means I am safe? That is good. I think I did everything you told me to. I am a problem I admit, as I know just enough to be dangerous and not enough to actually
know what is going on. Do I need to do anymore to the card in the computer? Thank you so much and I will continue to monitor the Inspector.
Now, is there any data recovery program or such that I can run to look for evidence that she did use it?
Thank you again...I am so grateful for you all. You have saved my butt many times as technology changes.
