It’s amazing how many people don’t secure their network. I live in a populated area with close homes and when I view the wireless networks there are like 6 unsecured around my house!

Not having a wireless network will ensure that no one will bother it. I have a wired home network at home because I live in a city that has many other networks. I believe that a wired home network is more dependable.

Thanks

I got into wireless networking when living with my ex-wife. She was nervous about the idea of my stringing networking cables around her little house.

Now that I’m single again, I’m using Apple’s Airport Extreme Base Station (AEBS) and using most of the protection you’re describing.

My only stumbling block is the MAC address thing. I wrote down the MAC addresses of my computers the other day. But I just can’t quite put the rest of the process together.

I lost the list, but will recreate it, and try once again.

Maybe I’ll bump into you in the forums, and you can help provide some encouragement?!

Happy Holidays

Ron Knights

It’s also a good idea to change your key regularly because if your traffic is sniffed, it can be easily cracked. (KisMAC promises to do this in under a minute, I think). If you want to check for other devices, you don’t necessarily need an application, just go to your router’s config page and look at IP addresses. You should change the default password for your router’s admin page so that if someone does get on your network, they won’t have direct control over your router.
