I listened to the Security Now! podcast (Episode #11) over my lunch break. Basically, Steve and Leo are telling us that WEP will barely protect us. What!?! I’m using WEP at home!
My mind was racing. Thoughts of buying a new wireless router entered in. Fortunately, I came back to earth and found that if I update the firmware on my D-Link DI-614+ above v3.28, and get the WPA drivers for my Linksys WPC11 v3, I should have WPA security.
This is definitely a notes-to-self, plus a heads up to you if you’ve got a wireless router wide open. I’ve got two friends I think I’ll need to go make sure their wireless router is secure. Security Now! (Anybody reminiscing of a certain Seinfeld episode?)
