Those company's normally use a radius server. That's probably the best way to secure their wifi at the moment.
Also the latest wifi's have WPA which is already a lot better than 256bit WEP.

I use 128bit WEP, shouldn't that be good enough for a basic home wlan?

are you doubting me, boy? :grin:

why would you doubt me? *snif*

and no i dont have a clue why they especially need WiFi. (yes it's easy for the laptops, but it's not really that hard to plug in a wire either )

Try beating that any time soon.

If someone over there opens a window, is that concidered a security leak ???
@ window leak

but no, there is massive airco-system, controlled in each officespace/room seperatly, so there is no need to open a window. furthermore i'm pretty sure opening one would result in an alarm going off.

as for passwords and stuff, i really dont know, we didnt talk about it.

that's enough, yes. but keep in mind: when an intruder manages to capture enough packets (~500MB I think), he's able to break the WEP key

128bit wep is sufficient for home use. Besides, you could always keep an eye on who the users are at any given time within your network.
