You say you had it checked? If its not to personal a question by who, most support providers use software that lets the operator know support is in control or watching.
At least the support software we use does.

I only ask because my dad's new wife got scammed buy someone from Microsoft.

have you any specific in mind bc ? its running windows 8 btw
with my old router i had control over the security etc and could monitor who used it but with this i cant.

it was through the dell support helpline rob ( under warranty ) i watched what they were doing etc but my web cam did something its never done before last night without me touching anything/changing myself , it then hit me that maybe someone could still be logged on from the support check session the day before ! i might be being paranoid but id like to know for sure.

Any of the compatible free FW's will be fine mate. All of which should ask for permission to connect whilst in 'learning' mode.
