    I have the MS wireless base station (870 g). I currently
    run an wireless card on my laptop. I use mac ID filtering
    and only allow access to the two puters on my net. When I
    refresh the ms broadband window, it shows a name different
    from what I have named my computers. However it shows the
    correct IP address. when I click on the device on my
    network, I cannot access it. Is my network being
    invaded? If so, other than using WEP or WPa security, how
    do I prevent these other people from using my internet
    connection and accessing my netowrk?

    Read the articles by Barb about securing your wireless network.

    Since I've never heard of a 870 I have no clue what hardware you are
    running. For the 802.11g hardware, Microsoft only had the following
    models MN-700, MN-710, MN-720, & MN-730.
