Recently my i-connection started to get laggy. Sometimes it disappears completely.
ISP told me that someone steals my internet. Someone has managed to sniff my MAC address, kick me out and surf web in my place.
So... I'm curious - how it's possible to steal MAC address and what makes that mystical thief to be more privileged that when he uses i-net I lose mine (this technique would be especially handy while I'm waiting on ISP)?
Are there any defense against this?
Or my ISP just lies to me?
P.s. It's not wifi.
This is how it looks like:
- I'm living in apartment no 14.
- Neighbor i trust lives in apartment no 13
- Neighbor i don't know lives in apartment no 7
Wtfis where 1 cable magically turns into 2 cables
Forgot to mention - thing that makes 'theft of internet' more believable is that i-net shows up at night when everybody sleeps. And ISP said that there was internet traffic when my pc was turned off.
