Anyone know why this would be there? It shows mine, as it should, and then shows my upstairs neighbor as well. Do I need to be concerned about this? Thanks much for any help!

Hi missminerva

 

With speccy I can see my neighbors wifi info as well' and can also see their network in the list of available networks to join via Windows "Network and Sharing Center"> if I had their password  :lol:

I assume that they can see my info too.

Keep your network security enabled ! 

And make sure a password is needed to join your network !

It will show any wifi network that your PC / laptop is currently picking up.

 

At the moment my laptop is showing mine plus three others, and all also show in speccy.

(All neighbours, and I do have the passwords for two of them).

 

If you have unlimited broadband it's can be a good idea to share passwords with a trusted neighbour who also has unlimited.

Then if something happens to yours you can use theirs while you sort it out, and vice-versa.
