Do you run wireless computers in your home and how secure are they??

Do you think anyone could get past your wireless network???

  • Highly doubt anyone could get in without FBI assistance. SO is a network geek so this is like a safe.

  • WEP 128-bit.
    Sure someone could get in. There isn't a network in the world that can't be hacked...but they would have to want to pretty bad.

  • It's cops and robbers. There is a way to keep them out TODAY. Tomorrow they will figure out how to get around it.

  • yes we have wireless, we also have a code that you need to link to it, so without the code you can't log onto our wireless network and steal our internet. HOWEVER there are programs you can get to bypass peoples codes and such, I'm not sure how available they are to some people though, just know my uncle had one for his work.

    Besides which.. it depends on where you live.. if you live in an apartment or a town where your neighbors are closer together, you are going to want a code to log in (you won't need it every time, your computer can save it so it auto logs). But if you live in the country and your neighbors are far away, you shouldn't ahve a problem.
