Most of the links above reflect the current state of Wireless Security today. However, please be aware that achieving useful Wireless Security is an exercise in tracking a constantly moving target. Having assimilated a good part of the above information please do not go to sleep. Hacker and cracker threats are presently evolving from the casual actions of script kiddies into threat scenarios entailing serious potential harm and financial loss. I am not one to promote fear, uncertainty and doubt, but it is very important to always be paying attention.
...And now for a helpful word from our most excellent sponsors



NOD32 Antivirus  STOPS Viruses, Worms, Trojans, SpyWare, AdWare, Phishing and other Malware


CLICK HERE for your FREE 30-day evaluation license - then click on "Download" at the bottom of the page.

My Personal Recommendation - I have previously used Norton Anti Virus by Symantec for over 20 years and now instead recommend NOD32 to all of my customers. It delivers the world's best proactive protection, the highest number of 100% Virus Bulletin tests passed for the last seven years and the best performance and compatibility that I have seen for quite some time. Disclosure: If you click and buy I make a few per cent on the sale. I have chosen to offer NOD32 for sale here because I use it myself and having done the research believe that it offers the best protection.
