Chapter 6. BROADBAND: ALWAYS ON, ALWAYS ... > Keep Your Eyes Open; Keep Your Guard...

Keep Your Eyes Open; Keep Your Guard Up

We don't want you to leave this chapter feeling scared of getting a cable modem or DSL. The advantages are huge if your family wants to use multimedia, online role-playing games, or be a server for family pictures. You need to remember, however, that a slow dial-up connection has less risk. If you are going to leave your connection on all the time, be sure to read Chapter 10 and take precautions to protect your information.

NOTE

This chapter is based on information available from NetAction.org, written by Judi Clarke. NetAction has graciously allowed us to use their essay as the foundation of this chapter.
