    Hello!

    In our (familiy) household there are 2 computers. 1 PC (which are connected through wire to the modem/router) and a laptop.

    I have lately used the netstat fuction to check connections on my PC and today I found the name of the laptop being there as a netbios-ssn. I was surprised because I cant remember seeing the other laptop being represented here before. I dont share anything with the laptop (from what I know) more than the wlan.

    What could have caused this? Were just the other computer trying to connect to the wlan or was someone looking into my computer?

    Thanks!
