Re: Hacking into wifi

That's usually a problem if you give out your default WiFi configuration. That means they have your passwords every time you reset to the factory defaults.
Other than that. There are configurations to consider.
Device discovery and access list. I don't think you can now ever disable your network discovery. That goes against gateway policy. You have to get a new router.
And there are guest networks to consider. Maybe check to make sure your guest networks are disabled until you are comfortable with configuring your own connection rules yourself.

Re: Hacking into wifi

There are 2 problems that are persistently present with your question.

Your neighbors could be just messing with you.

Your default router settings are always

Admin

Password

So everyone with network access can change your connection rules(screenshot 5)

Anyone who you give your WiFi passwords to has that access to your networks.

Change your wifi passwords and broadcast name(screenshot 6).
