    The same. I have my PC hard wired into the router though, but have a wireless router for my PS3, and also when friends bring over their devices so they can play with them if they lack 3/4G. Or in case I ever decide I want a laptop some day, or even a 2'nd computer somewhere else in the house away from the router.

    It's not my vote but I do have one old device that requires WEP. I managed this by having a seperate router just for that and have it only run during hours I need it (seldom). Sucks but I can't replace it either since the company went out of business :/

    Might not be a joke. Verizon gives people (my neighbors and friends) a router for FIOS (optical) internet, phone and TV and, no I am not kidding, WEP is the only option they have.


    My vote: I use WPA2, always.

    Yup, I'm one of them. Don't know why I should feel threatened though, especially in lieu of the fact I can connect through at least one neighbor's network whose connection is unsecured /open.

    WPA2 Long password upper and lower case letter number combo.For over three years now some Dude name marty is broadcasting his wireless through out the entire neighborhood.:eek: I dont doubt some neighbors are enjoying free internet at his expense.

    Ha. I wish there was. It's an old Legacy security system that can't be replaced easily. All of our security cams run over it (wired though) and the admin interface is access remotely via WiFi (hence the need of WEP only). I have slowly moved over half the camera to a more secure and modern system. The sad thing is we can't disrupt service so one camera or so a month takes a long time.

    There is someone in my vicinity using WEP... and even 1 unsecured wireless network.

    My first thought was: honeypot, as well. I don't think any of my neighbors know much about computers, but I could be mistaken. I aint bitin on that "free internet access", I know that much.

    The first and the last option should be together, since WEP can be broken in a about 5 minutes, if you include making a coffee. :rolleyes:
