    Its full of information and it will educate you on some of the terminology and how certain things work on a wireless LAN.

    cheers,

    the most useful information does not always come in short paragraphs. It seems that all you know how to do is google. Its about time you stopped spamming the Tech Hummor forums. Glad to have ya back. Besides....a quick advices for you wolverine...if you want something done right, you better spend the time and effort reading about it. Being too lazy to read 10 pages (Deduct 2 of them for Cover Page and Index) will not get you very far.

    Cheers,

    I wish more newbs knew how....



    EDIT: I got it!!! I'm going to write a Google tutorial. For all the newbies out there.


    Google tutorial:

    www.google.com

    1. Type stuff in box.
    2. Get answer without useless posts.
    3. That's it.
    Real security doesn't come with an installer.

    Brilliant..... One of the most succinct tutorials I have seen. It contains all the information required without extraneous "chit-chat". It should probably be made a sticky......

    google.com....isn't a place where knowledgeable experts can divulge information that has proven to be useful...this is why we have a BBS..yes?

    Are you looking for guides on how to make your LAN secure? Or are you looking for some sort of a program?

    For a guide..I found this to be particularely useful:
    http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,4149,1276349,00.asp
    Although slightly general it still gives you alot of the basics.
    And then for something a bit more in depth..if your not too bored for this..lol.
    http://www.iss.net/wireless/WLAN_FAQ.php

    For a book I personally like this:
    http://www.linuxsecurity.com/article...icle-8885.html

    Sadly...I haven't found a program that would do this..supposedly the US Federal Gov has it's own security audit proggy for WLANS..but thats the only thing I could find...lmao.

    The only other thing I could suggest is try hacking your own WLAN and secure it..

    Have fun with that lol..wlans can be pretty cool.

    Well, to "toot my own horn" as they say- you can read Wireless Network Security For The Home . You can also find a lot of useful information on JiWire.com (I wrote a feature article for them which should post in the next week or two).

    Aside from that, I would also recommend simply testing security the "old-fashioned way" by using something like Shields Up or Anonymizer to perform free penetration tests and give you some basic info on what the outside world can see.

    It won't help you identify what someone using Kismet or NetStumbler can discover sniffing wireless packets from your driveway, but it will help you learn how secure your network is to the outside world as a whole.

    Not so. Why wait a few minutes for people to type out a response when you could google it and get a result in 0.37 seconds?

    A couple quick things to do if you haven't already. Change the defaults passwords and logins for your router. Check to see if your router supports WPA, and enable it if you have it. If you don't, you should at least have WEP. Also, as tronic said, why don't you just use a laptop to try and access it?

And the whole time, I was thinking, \"I\'m a grown man. I should know what goes on my head.\" And the more I thought about it... the more I realized that I should just blow my brains out and end it all. But then I thought, well, if I thought more about blowing my brains out... I start worrying about what that was going to do to my goddamn carpet. Okay, so, ah-he, that was a GOOD day, Doc. And, and I just want you to give me some pills and let me get on with my life. \" -Roy Waller
