Default Re: Wireless Router

I can see in a dense area, the wireless router acts like a wide open shared network similar to the cable situation (which is one reason I never went with cable), but in a
typical suburban home situation, how many cars are parked out front with a tech savvy hacker waiting to break in?

kenyee, I do have to catch up with wireless security again.... haven't looked at it since its infancy when I was thinking of joining a wireless startup...which I didn't do....I did protocol stacks back then... ah the gool'ol days.

Yep, odds are, it won't matter. If you have neighbors in the city, I'd lock it down tighter...a script kiddy is all it takes :-)
I used to do firmware for routers/switches way back...UB Networks/Tylink/Codex. That was a few careers ago...
