    How do you disconnect it? Turn off the router? Unplug the cable? If either of those, and it's back on, that's an issue. Someone would have to trespass in your home to get it back on.

    If you disable it with software (like logging into your router to disable) or just on your device, then you might not have any security setup on your network.

    Where did you see this Dennis and "hidden network? If it was in your list of potential networks to connect to, then it's probably just a neighbors network that's near by your device is detecting (not him actually on your network).

        Doesn't really sound like an issue. If you're seeing 'Dennis' in the list where you reconnect to your network, then that is just another nearby network. "Nearby" could be 100yds away.

        Hopefully your router has an access password. When you pick your connection to reconnect do you see a little "padlock" icon next to it? Or do u know if you have a password for people to connect? If you do, then I'd be even more confident that this isn't something you need to worry about.

          Sounds like a bit of confusion I have never seen a disconnect button on a keyboard. Plus you cant turn on and off your internet. You can turn off your modem that will stop the signal and cut off wifi but the signal is still running to the home.

          My guess is your seeing other networks in your area and someone has named there network Dennis. My guess also is you will see some type of lock icon meaning you need a password to access.

          I would recommend a good on line class on home networking and computers to help you understand more and worry less.

              if it's a wireless router, you need to hide your SSID so no one can know your network.
