Is Your Always On Connection Always Secured?

One of the critical issues involved with the growing wireless market is security. Consumers and home businesses have been purchasing wireless devices to transmit everything from music to photos. However, mid-sized to large businesses, especially financial ones (banks, brokers, etc.) don't trust this technology, and with a good reason. It's not secure

Surprisingly most users don't setup WEP and allow everything at default. I have two access points and often I could get to my neigbor's router. One of my daughters lives in big city never pays of the service because there are plenty she can tap onto for free.

indeed, i wonder how come some people can setup their networks without any thought going into any kind of security at all, it's like inviting everyone to come in

They don't know better. They think the signals stop where their hous stops.
Plus, they don't know anything about the risks of running an unsecured wireless setup.

But, I think the manufacturers could change something about this by enabling security by default or letting the software, to force the users to enable it or read the manual.

Just my 2cents
