WIRELESS SECURITY ISSUES

WIRELESS SECURITY LIMITATIONS

The Annoyance:

I’m a total security freak. In fact, I approach paranoia when I configure security for my computers and network. For my wireless network...

The Fix:

STOP RIGHT THERE! If you’re that serious about security, you don’t want wireless technology on your network. A wireless network has an “intrusion possibility” factor that’s much higher than any wired network (Ethernet, phoneline, or powerline). To get into a wired network, an intruder needs to come into your house and connect to the wired network. You’d probably notice that. Getting into a wireless network is much easier because it can be accomplished without anyone noticing. The security features available for wireless networks don’t overcome that security gap. Keep your network hardwired or you’ll probably have a nervous breakdown!
