Jason Tramer has an excellent point about maintaining and securing wireless networks that I must bring attention to. Net Stumbler is a tool he recommends for sorting out your wireless connections that I can’t wait to put to good use. He also mentions a lack of name assignment for wireless networks.
Why don’t people bother to change the name of their wireless network? It’s an identifying factor that’s broadcast out to anyone who can sniff a signal. Mine is “Mad Scientists Local #317″ and though I need to kill my WEP now I hope the name at least makes people wary of hacking my connection.
So what do you call your wireless network?
