Access your wireless router

and take a look at the DHCP log for connected users.

If you do not recognize the devices or there are more devices connected than you actually own, then you probably have a "visitor"

You do have security turned on for that network and users are required to enter a password to join, right?

You really should change the password in the router, so only you and your family will be able to get on. Of course, this will mean changing the password on your devices that connect to the router, too.
