Better quit using WEP...

Alexander Holy's Weblog : Rest in pieces, WEP: Retire your WEP based WLAN equipment today

I've read a for-real step by step procedure for cracking anybody's WEP "secured" access point. It only takes a couple of minutes and you're on. Any of y'all that run wireless networks at your houses better switch up to WPA/PSK.

I'm a WPA guy, too. Don't broadcast my SSID and I use a 65 character randomly generated key. Ask Brent about that ****.

The point is so that those driving around looking for open wireless networks can sit there leaching off your router and do bad bad things. It also prevents cheepo neighbors from leaching off your internet access...but from the sounds of things, I doubt any of your neighbors would be able to hack wep or even want to. I love sitting at my house and messing with the neighbors settings. I lost count the number of times I reset the routers in the area or made unsecured ones secured so they can't access them anymore.
