    This is not really a win 8 issue, you might have more luck contacting d-link support directly and asking them here.

    I was also worried that someone was using my wifi a while ago, I found out who the culprit was by looking at the list of reserved IP addresses. Most routers have this facility. Usually the lease time is a couple of days so you can see everyone whose connected in the last two days. You can then either block that mac address or change your password. I blocked it and found out it was my flatmates new phone! Oops!

    Good luck!

    Unfortunately I don't know of any. D link might know of something, drop them an email.

    BUT just to save you barking up the wrong tree - It sounds as if you are looking for a piece of third party software that will either:

    1) Access your router and give you a list of previous connections
    OR
    2) Be installed into your router to log all connections so you can check the list.

    Currently I'm not aware that home routers have the functionality of the second item. You are talking about updating the firmware on the router to include third party software, and this can be a tricky business!

    Unless your router already shows you who has been connecting (such as in the reserved IP address lease list) I dont think its going to be possible. BUT good luck!

    I'm not so good at this but you should try to go with the internet browser to: 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 and then the modem's settings and statistics + options should be displayed.

    But probably you already seen this option.

    Good point - I possibly wrongly assumed that you knew how to do that. The login IP address to access the info I've been talking about will be the same as your gateway IP. This can be found under Control Panel (icons) -> Network and sharing centre -> change adapter settings (left panel) -> Right click on the device your using for the internet -> Status -> Details. Look under IPv4 Default gateway.

    The login and password for your router may be on the back, or, by default, it may be a combination for 'admin' and 'password' for the username and password respectively. However if this doesnt work, you can usually find the default settings for your router by googling.

    Switch to WPA2 and use a new stronger network access password. Also, change at least the password on your router to a new stronger one. That should take care of the possible problem unless you really want to know if someone has been using your network/internet.

    My router logs all connection attempts, most any decent router already has this feature.

    D-Link typically uses 192.168.0.1 for the default gateway.

    I'm not familiar with the gateway being referred to as PPPo but I imagine it relates to a dial up connection. If this is just a modem you need to add a router.
