    How can I control a wireless network using ESS5. I am noticing an unknown I think cellphone connecting ( Motorola Mobility) into my wireless. I have no real knowledge of wireless or how the firewall in Ess can be used to control this. The router is an AT&T Uverse router box.

    It sounds like they might be connecting to your wireless connection because your network is unsecured. There's an AT&T Support page on this process. You're already doing the first part by using ESET Smart Security.

    If the network is secured and they're still able to connect without your permission, you may need to change the password to access your network. ESET released a white paper on good password practices that might be worth looking into:
