Don't forget, you also have to buy wireless cards for each computer on top of the $134 for the router. Wireless is a much more expensive option, less secure and slower. I wouldn't recommend it.
And all it takes is like 5 seconds to fix that. Something else to consider, you'd be shocked how many people who buy the regular wired DSL Routers don't change the default password. And many of the routers will give some hint of when probed so even with the Routers, not very secure if the default password is left as is.Originally posted by Bogy
Speaking of paranoia, a few nights ago one of the local tv stations here in Omaha had a news segment where they went for a short drive and tapped into 59 wireless networks. Very few have any kind of security.
Well there are some altruistic folks who are setting up urban wireless networks for the masses. Maybe you should think of your neighbors as friends instead of "network intruders".Originally posted by Bob Haller
HO HO maybe I should go wireless and see if any neighbors systems are availabe at no charge? Just joking but (I bet folks do that on occasion. is there a way for a wirless sub to know if someone sealing their signal? I am curious about that since Jen says wirless would be neat, she wants a laptop some day.
