    Well, you can look in the router admin config to see what wireless cards are connecting to your network. They will more than likely tell you who is connected by their IP and MAC address. The mac address is really what you want. For each computer that connects to your router WIRELESSLY go to a command prompt (start menu > run > type "cmd [no quotes] > press "ok") and type "ipconfig /all" (note spacing) inside the command window. After typing that above command in and pressing "enter" on keyboard you'll get a few things show up on screen. The "physical address" section is your MAC Address. When looking at your router administration panel if there's a MAC address that's connected to your router that you didn't find on your local network then someone else is connecting to your router. Can't say for sure who it is but it's not you.
