Re: Unknown computers on local network - cable isp problem?
Since you are on a cable internet, ask your isp to scan their network(your node in particular) for other users with same 'mac' address on cable modem. maybe an issue with someone on your node with same 'mac' on their cable modem or have them swap out your cable modem for another with different mac.
if you isp has accurate online bandwidth monitor, you can unplug for 24 hours and see if bandwidth usage continued.
user tools can scan the local cable network for cable modems and see whats out there.
'cable' internet is like open sewer pipe. you can potentially see neighbors crap floating by.
