Tip of the Week:

Home Wireless Networks Are Vulnerable When Not Properly Secured. Require a Password and Encrypt Your Connection to Remain Safe.

Intruders who break into your wireless network could potentially gain access to your personal and confidential documents or to work documents that you have accessed from home. To reduce the possibility of risk, you should require a login and password to connect to your network and you should ensure that it is encrypted. Use WPA rather than WEP; WEP is an old type of security that is not very effective. If your wireless router only offers WEP security, it may be time to upgrade.
