Wireless Networks – great connectivity but poor security.

Many of the networks installed in homes and smaller businesses are probably installed by folks like my friend George. He can figure out things, does not mind to tinker and will find a solution to a problem. He installed a wireless network in his house and loves it. Fast high speed connection to the ‘net and now this new Dell notebook and desktop PC can cruise the ‘net. HOWEVER, his security was bad and he found out after visiting his neighbor that OTHERS were accessing his broad band connection.
He called D-Link, who provided his wireless gateway/router and they told him to reset his router to kick the person off – THIS TIME ONLY – they could always get back on again. They also showed him how to tell if others were on his network. However, George and other users need built in security and red labeled warnings that their wireless networks might be open doors into their networks!
