I KNEW they were using it!

This pilot fish gets a call from his sister-in-law, who suspects her neighbors are using her Wi-Fi connection.

"She asked if I could lock it down," says fish. "I got on her machine and locked it down.

"Then the Wi-Fi kept cutting in and out. I asked to see her router -- and noticed that it was off.

"Turns out she had been using her neighbor's Wi-Fi, which I had just locked the neighbors out of. They were power cycling it to fix it.

"I reversed the changes and set hers up correctly."
