Possible hacking of my network

For the last several days I've been getting a message from Google on my iPod each time I try to use Safari for a search.  It's something like "We see unusually high activity on your network and we want you to do this Capcha to confirm that it's you."

 

I'm concerned that someone has hacked my wifi network.  Tonight I changed the password.  Is there anything else I can do?

Re: Possible hacking of my network

I saw no reply from you other than a referral to a bunch of FAQs that did not help me in the least.  And don't be sarcastic.  If you won't help, then don't bother answering.

Not liking the answer I gave is not the same as saying "No one has replied yet". This is a peer to peer support forum. The fact that you even had to ask such a basic question means that you're not familiar with basic security measures.  Even if you subscribe to services like Comcast's xFi Advanced Security and Norton Security Online you will not be protected fully. 

To be forewarned is to be forearmed.
