Wireless woes

Did you know most home wireless networks are NOT secure?

"But I have a firewall so I'm safe aren't I?"

Having a firewall will normally stop unauthorised access to your network or PC from somewhere else on the internet. However, having a badly configured wireless network means somebody may already be ON YOUR NETWORK, without even having to come past the firewall.


Below is an example diagram of how this is possible; a network signal extends beyond the house walls into the street and somebody in a car with a laptop and wireless card is able to access any shared information and surf the web using your system:

THIS PROBLEM IS EASILY OVERCOME BY CONFIGURING YOUR WIRELESS NETWORK TO USE STRONG ENCRYPTION. Please contact us for more information about this service.
