I hope you like your teenage neighbor downloading torrented music and movies on your wireless internet. Say hi to the RIAA for me.

You do know it is possible to secure an AP so that this will not happen.

Yeah cause MAC address filtering and 128 bit wireless encryption really does it.

Change channels on the wireless network.

Change between 6 and 11.

Yes, a properly configured AP can be just as secure as it's wired counter part. Also I wouldn't be to worried about the neighbor kid hacking my wireless connection.

Call me a troll whatever I don’t care. I’m just trying to help my ARFCOM brother out. Give some teenagers an open source program and a 50 dollar antenna and see what happens. The only secure computer is a computer that is turned off.

In a locked room, with no remote power on capability (wake-on LAN, etc).

Not callin you a troll at all, just having some fun.

While an out-of-the-box AP *is* inherently insecure, a little WEP and MAC whitelisting and you're good to go from 99% of unauthorized access. Hackers and kids are looking for easy targets, the low-hanging fruit.. they're not going to expend all the effort to crack a residential AP whitelist.
