My next door naighbour hacking my WiFi and also making his "WiFi" offensive names about me. It's kind of stalking. Those people sitting in home and only one thing what thay can do is smoking drugs. Problem is long and they still stalking. Their service provider was cancelled so they hacking me and my kids. Noone can see errors. I made printscrins of networks names arround me and one offensive about me.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You should also change your Wi-Fi password.
Then if I were you report them since they are being abusive and effectively stealing from you.
If want you can also call the broadband team to explain the situation. See link for number.
I can see those who fallow on same channel. Usually they using keylogger or other nasty apps calling themself "hackers" it's can be also "hammerbox" from eBay it's searching passwords and guessing them both things taking to unlock password to 4-6 hours but now this systems can recognise password easy and quick. Usually showing DNS problem, duplex error in log sys 1970. I'm directed to some doggy channel..if I'm changing channel it's back to current one automatic should be changed to manual but it's gray and cannot change is display auto. It's just need another decoder who works independent against keyloggers who are not hackers just app users. Someone cyber security ppl should more lookup for this nasty apps and treat them like against the low.
If you think your neighbour is getting onto your wifi network, as well as changing wifi password as advised above, also turn off "WPS" in your router. I don't know about the NowTV routers in particular, but "WPS Pin mode" has design flaws (and then wireless routers have implementation flaws) that can let people connect to your wifi if they are determined.
In the NOW Hub Two, go to Wireless | 2.4 GHz Wireless Settings and untick "Enable WPS", then click Apply. Do the same for the 5GHz setting also.
Equip yourself with Fing. The basic version is free, and you can see the size of the problem, at least. You may have to get the Premium version, but you can see the invaders, and block them in a number of ways, notably MAC addresses. Unless they can spoof those, this will keep the devices they are using out of your network.
There is also a Fingbox you can buy, which will dynamically add an extra layer of security by not allowing any new device to connect unless you specifically authorise it.
Are you using a Now router? These have an excellent security feature in that the signal won’t usually reach next door 😛 But it sounds like you might need a little more than that.

It's very unlikely they are able to "hack" your Wi-Fi as long as you have a good password (at least 12 characters) but as @seebee says make sure WPS is turned off.
They seem very nasty characters, assuming they are renting, a complaint to their landlord or the local council may help. If drugs are involved the police may be interested.
You truly have my sympathies, scum like that are a result of years of "progressive" hands off policing.
