    Hi guys,

    If someone could give me some advice on the following I would be most grateful.

    I have just setup a wireless network at home and secured it with 128BIT WEP,
    changed the admin password etc so it's fairly secure yet I seem to have a little
    problem. When clicking on view workgroup computers I see MSHOME which
    is the default network that I have but also have another workgroup called BT, which inside
    this is something called Samba Server (Thomson). This leads to me think
    that someone is using my network.

    I have switched off my router and changed passwords and weps etc but to no avail,
    it went away and now it's back. It is definitely nothing to do with me as I dont have
    Linux installed and have def not setup a samba server.

    Any ideas?
