Is Your Wireless Internet Secure?~by Mark Kirkendall of Calaveras IT

It is becoming more and more common for the average household to have multiple computers connected to the internet. At the same time, Wireless Home Networks are becoming more popular. You would be surprised how many times I have been somewhere with houses nearby, jumped on my iPhone to check email, and see insecure wireless networks popping up with generic names like “default”....


What is the danger in having an insecure wireless network? There are numerous dangers and internet theft has become more common in populated areas. A neighbor can easily jump on you insecure wireless connection and have the advantage of DSL or Cable speed internet without having to pay for it. If they happen to be into downloading a lot of music or movies, their piggy backing on your connection can severely reduce the speed of your connection.

Doesn’t sound that bad? What if they are downloading illegal files though your connection? What about the fact that by being on your insecure network, they can potentially access computers and files in your home?

It is great to have the technology to connect multiple computers in our home to the internet and to be able to sit on the couch with a laptop and have a wireless connection. If you are not sure how to set it up yourself, have a professional do it for you. Question the person installing your wireless device about the security they are implementing. If you already have a wireless internet connection and are not sure if it is secure, talk with the people who installed it for you and ask them about it. If you still are not sure, have it checked out.

Happy and Secure Computing!
