    Change the wifi password, and if you hear loud cursing next door, you pretty much know!

    Your router can show you all the devices that are connected

    Just change your Wi-Fi password and tell your users to keep the new password to themselves.

    If you can check the usage of your Internet through the provider you can do so daily and tell if is exceeding what you use. Also as stated you can access your router/modem and see if other people are using it.

    List all your devices' MAC addresses. Check that with the list connected devices in your router's setup page. Anything listed there not yours is a freeloader.

    Strictly speaking, not unless you can force that neighbour to reveal the WiFi configuration of their devices.

    Best you can do is check in your router/access points whether there are any devices connected/listed that you can't explain. But that just tells you exactly that - there are devices connected you can't explain. Whether those are from your neighbour or anyone else, or simply stuff you connected once and then have forgotten about would still be open.

    If your question is, though, how to prevent your neighbour from connecting to your WiFi, then the answer is much easier: change your password. The ususal recommendation of a 12 digit random combination of letters and numbers should be good enough as to be unguessable.

    You could log into the router, there is normally a section where the router can display connected devices. Be suspicious of any devices you don't recognise.
