Just sharing some technical information on a residential wireless router and DSL.

I recently had Verizon DSL installed at my residence and today I finished installing a Linksys Wireless G Router so that the internet connection could be shared by several computers. Results, exceptional!

Great for you, as this is off topics I will try to be brief.

Wireless technologies required quality security setup or you could become your neighbors ISP or get a lot of personal information stolen from the air-waves. Beware...

PM me if you would like more detail...

Good afternoon and Thank-you for the information as you are correct with these concerns. However, my IP staff have already installed firewalls, secruity, etc. to reduce and/or eliminate those eventualities.

I'm glad you had pros taking care of it, these little box are easily accessable to end users and comes with a default configuration loaded with vulnerabilities...

Enjoy the wi-fi life !
