Re: Gone wireless

I set up my girlfriends Mac powerbook for wireless, and it's great - she can sit in the lounge room on the net while I surf porn

Re: Gone wireless

I'm waiting till the price drops on one of these before I go wireless. Call me paranoid, but I hear way to many reports of peeps jumping on their neighbor's network, and since WEP has been compromised, its VPN or nothing for me.

Oh, and if your router supports it, do yourself a favor and at least turn on MAC address filtering.

yeah, wireless is the shiz...it does suck if you next door hacker hops on your network, thats the truth. I set these thing up pretty much every day...and if the user has like two computers, I set the router to only give out two DHCP address, and that keeps the risk a little lower.

Team Honda - well sorta...

Re: Gone wireless

Two words: Netstumbler and Airsnort. Be careful, and make sure you use all the security available, WEP, Mac Filtering, and not broadcasting your SSID. I have a couple cards and a bridge. The bridge is hooked to my Xbox for Live.. Works great. Just be careful, and keep an eye on things, like the dhcp addresses you give out. If you notice a machine you don't recognize, then you need to investigate.
