Your router should show connected devices or, users someplace in it's settings. If you suspect your wifi is being stolen, change your password.

If you have an Exede Wifi modem, you can contact Exede for help securing it. You can email exedelistens@viasat.com or, choose one of the contact methods on the "Contact us" page: https://www.exede.com/contact-us-exede/

That would largely depend up what WiFi router you are using - most respectable routers have a utility that will display devices that are connecting to it - identify the brand and model and someone may be able to help and point you in the right direction.

But as a preventive measure you could always change both the WiFi and administrative passwords on the router

Hi Christine,  Log into your router and check to see what devices are connected. Identify which ones belong to you.  If there are devices connected that are not yours, then someone way be using your connection.  Please make sure you have your WiFi password protected.
