    AFAIK it all depends on what logging is available on the router and what
    logging has been enabled. You might want to ask your family member if
    there is a download limit so your music and videos don't use it all.
    This is out of your control unless you have access to the router's
    interface to change the logging preferences.

    Hey there,

    Im using his Belkin ADSL Box, it sends out a wirless connection that my
    laptop is picking up. His laptop is connected to the box. My Firewall is up,
    and preventing file sharing ect.

    So does that still mean he can track all the web pages i visit ect? Even
    though were on two different laptops.

    Also another neighbour is using the singal, would the same apply for them?
    Thank you for your reply! Please help..
