Best Tech Call

Yeah Use WPA instead of WEP. A savvy user can go from zero knowledge to cracking WEP keys in about a day. From there he can get the knowledge to sniff packets and eavesdrop on day three. A week of hard work, and the right Google searches, and hes on to man in the middle attacks. That's the holy trinity of attacks that can compromise your encrypted internet traffic (online banking and such). That's your neighbor or the dude parked on the street with a laptop in his car. Wireless G has a range of about 110 feet. Less if it has a lot of thick walls to pass though. Devices can sense networks farther away from that, but will have difficulty connecting. If you piss someone off, and they have a week of free time, they can do this sort of shit to you. Be mindful of the area 110 feet from your access point.
