    There is a particular Wifi network which is continuously on, name is **, which is used by

    hacker(s) to hack into laptops and desktops.

    This particular network is suspect because unlike other networks like Zyxel , Draknet which

    are on for some time only, this network is always on.

    How do you trace the owner of a Wifi network?

    So what your saying is there's an Open WiFi network that you have access to and they just use it to access peoples computers that connect to them?

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean but if I understood correctly then i guess you shouldn't be trying to steal peoples bandwidth or deal with the consequences lol..

    Also just because a network is always on doesn't exactly mean something fishy is going on.

    Unfortunately unless you're with law enforcement, you won't be able to find out the owner of that access point. You could try to guess where it's located but the owner of the IP is impossible to find.
