You can disable the SSID Broadcast (usually in the wireless settings of the router) and your wifi signal won't come up in the connection list. Anyone that wants to connect to your router will have to know the SSID and to do that you'll need to use wireshark or something.

To make a long story short, my parents and their neighbors have an on going fued(as childish as it is, we do live in Florida). Among having security cameras pointed at my parents house we suspect they are jamming my parents wifi network. At first I was sceptical to their claims but having been through about 10 wifi outages in the past 24 hours I too am beginning to suspect something foul is going, the latest alleged jam corresponded with said neighbor coming home for her lunch break and all the alleged jams occur when they are home and. Various law enforcement agencies have been contacted as well as the FCC, however being a petty crime they don't seem to care. I need some insight on how to prove the said neighbors are maliciously jamming my parents network and what appropriate actions they should take.
My advice to them is to give up using wifi and use landlines on all their computers(both parents work out of their home), routing cat 5 cables through the house is a bit of a headache and my brother and I would be doing the work, needless to say as of right now my parents are still using wifi. They have tried switching channels, changing passcodes, ect.; however if the said neighbors do have a jamming device not much can be done to prevent the network from going down.
Any advice both legal and technical will be of great help to me and my family.
