is the WAN ICMP echo request check box something i need? doesn't seem to affect anything since unchecking it. does that just stop outside addresses from pinging the router?


yes

Having a wireless network that is "open" is not a good idea. Hackers cruise neighborhoods looking for free signals, and can inflict damage to your home setup.. or cause excessive client loads on the system.
Always a good idea to set restrictions on who uses a wireless network.. allowing only specific IP addresses in your group. Adding or removing an IP address is easy.
Wireless setups have to share the same RF signal with other devices.. cell phones, remote controls, a mouse or keyboard.. and may have interference problems from nearby devices (within 100 feet or so) that create strong signals. And if there is an RF reflective surface too close to the antenna, corrupted data packets can cause repeated 'resend' echoes.

well i had wpa2 on with a strong password. is there a way to get in even with that measure being implemented?
as far as i could tell, the three computers they had were the only ones with access, and i did restrict the ip address range handed out by dhcp to only 10, and restricted total devices to 5.

like i said earlier, now that i've turned off the radio, zero problems. but in the future, i may want to turn it on again for myself, and i'd like to squelch this issue before then..
