    For a long time now, ever now and the a warning would pop up saying a new device has joined the network.
    I'm convinced it's my neighbours.
    The network map looks something like this:


    The 'THOMSON' PC is the one I'm getting fed up of seeing.

    How can I cut this guy from my router? It's never as simple as right click-disconnect device these days is it.

    I swear, this guy has been 'leeching' my internet for too long.
    I don't know how he's doing it, the router is passworded. I've changed it twice.
    I don't know who he is, but if I ever find out for certain that it is next door, I'll go over there and... oh god knows what.

    Answered questions:
    what type of security have you got? - I'm using WEP as far as I know.

    You should have printed a full-page goatse :P

    Also, yeah, block his MAC address.

    You should have sent ink bombs, when he connects you just print a full color page that is just a single dark color, eating up all his ink and possibly damaging his printer. Use red, should be dark on black and white printers too/eat up toner. The guy will show up again and you are just slowing him down, another method is to use mac address filtering for extra security.
