Since SP2 windows has it wireless network wizard. THe only problem is that it detects all the networks in my building, is there a way for it to say only my network, and now show me the rest of the ones in the area?

The Windows Wireless Zero Configuration tool is utter crap. Disable it and stick with whatever came with your card.

To be honest it works fine, I got the belkin g router and it didnt come with software, you put the disk in and u can do things like set the SSID and stuff like that, but thats about it. I just want it to were my laptop can only "see" my router not anyone elses.

I'll give you an example: both the SMC software and the Linksys software that came with my cards allow me to enter an SSID and the cards will then only look for APs with that one SSID.

If I get a spare minute at work I'll show you what to look for with a screenshot.

There's a program called Retina Security Scanner that I use that will tell you everything about every device on your network. Unfortunately it's not free :(

I've yet to find a free alternative.

that's an intrusion detection function, airsnare is simple and free for windows. You just create a safe list of your known mac addresses and it warns when unknowns are detected

Wow.

Airsnare has gotten a lot cooler since the last time I looked at it. I'm going to have to check out the new version.
