Whats the deal with that? Does it really need authorization, and maybe he came over and my roommate let him in to authorize it while I was away at work? Does the Android app not need authorization/pairing? How can I shut it down?
If this is a community wireless network every system in your home is at security risk. I would personally get myself a wireless bridge device and connect to the wan side my own wireless router pacing a hardware firewall between my network and the community.
If this is a shared SSID from your home set up a guest zone transfer the credentials they are using and create yourself a new SSID and credentials. Of that, some routers ASUS that I know of has a guest zone switch that allows the guest zone access to the home zone, turn it off!
