Secure your Wireless Router

by in 1

When setting up a wireless network at home, I was surprised to be able to connect to my neighbor's unsecured wireless router.  Not only could I have used his bandwidth for free, but had I been so inclined, I could have used the connection for illegal activities.  If the police came looking, he may not have been able to prove the activity didn't come from one of his computers. Properly securing wireless is not hard.  Look in the manual for changing the SSID to something unique, turning on WPA (avoid WEP) for authentication and TKIP for encryption, and using MAC address filtering.

  1. I value you taking the time to discuss this since I have strong beliefs and would like to learn more. As you gain expertise, It is quite beneficial to me. However, I'm a student, and I'm looking for the greatest academic report writing help service right now for my project task. Its website is really functional. It supports me in finishing my homework. I advise the pupil to take advantage of this website.
