In any location with unsecured WiFi I use a VPN to prevent other stations "listening in" to traffic from my laptop. I'm not sure if that would help in Chris' case. I depends on how the hacking is taking place.

The box pointed out by Steve is interesting. I have a Raspberry Pi 3 (with HiFiBerry DAC+ Pro) in my living room as a Squeezebox player. The WiFi reception on it is really poor though. I have tried the in-built WiFi, a USB dongle and a USB dongle with external aerial - all without success. I'm looking for some king of bridge that would pick up the signal from my Netgear access point and route it over Cat 5 cable into the Raspberry's wired Ethernet socket. Perhaps the Ravpower would work.

Would a small portable bridge router like this help keep nastys out of your computer?
