PROJECT III Securing Your Home Wireless Network
Wireless networks are so ubiquitous and inexpensive that anyone can easily build one with
less than $100 worth of equipment. However, wireless networks are exactly that—wireless—
they do not stop at walls. Living in an apartment, dorm, or house means that your neighbors
can access your network. It is one thing to let neighbors borrow sugar or a cup of coffee, but problems occur when you allow them to borrow your wireless network. There are several good reasons for not sharing a home wireless network including:
■ Slowing of Internet performance.
