This "videochatprogramm"; Are you talking an established, well-known software article, or are you talking something random that somebody has just sent you and told you to run on your machine?
I'd assume that you are on a router for this to even happen. All it is, is the sharing of the same local IP address, not the IP address from your ISP. If you were being hacked, the hacker would be connected to you, not sharing your IP. As @Klipsh mentioned, DHCP will automatically assign each device a local IP address such as 192.168.1.15. The 15 part is where the IP will differ from each device. Note that each router brand is different. I use Asus routers, they use 192.168.1.1. I had a router/modem from Comcast which used 10.0.0.1 as the IP address which the computer local IP would be based on that.thanks. I have a new problem. I was away for 30 minutes, when i came back, all of a sudden there was this message on my laptop:
“Windows has detected an IP address conflict” Another computer on this network has the same ip adress"
Now i am more shocked. What is this? I only use my laptop!!
I can assure that at least on MT, the admins aren't criminals. I can't speak for other sites that have a ton of ads and tracks. MT doesn't have either and I would have noticed an intruder on my network. A lot of the time I don't even bother using VPN on MT.But if the admins are criminal... you never know...
Why are you visiting or using their software, if you don't trust them.I meant the admins in this videochatprogramm, not you. The admin who run the videoroom are random people, thats why you can not trust them.
Its an established well known software, admins can host a room.This "videochatprogramm"; Are you talking an established, well-known software article, or are you talking something random that somebody has just sent you and told you to run on your machine?
For MAc Adress what shall i take? it says "mine" or "other" ?Why are you visiting or using their software, if you don't trust them.
How is your laptop connected to your router? Do you use a mobile or tablet? Are their other users on the same network?
- Login to your router settings, and change the password (not default).
- Check the Router Firewall is enabled.
- If you see a suspicious device on your network, remove it.
- If Wi-Fi enabled, change to WPA2 Security and use a different passcode (not default).
- If you don't use Wi-Fi (Wireless) and no one else shares your Internet, disable it.
- Enable MAC Address Filtering (optional) - Using this option allows only certain devices to use the network, make sure to add your device.
