Home Wireless Security

An unsecured wireless Access Point (AP) is risky to you, your personal data, your computers, and to your Internet Service Provider. If another person uses your unsecured AP for illegal activities you can be held accountable and be responsible for the actions of that individual(s). Anyone using your wireless connection has the potential to create problems even unintentionally. Using just WEP, TKIP, WPA/WPA2, or MAC address filtering is not enough to secure your WLAN.
