 Wireless Networking & 802.11

You don't have to knock holes in your walls to network your computers and share your family's Internet connection. Wi-Fi connects computers, printers, video camera's and game consoles into a fast Ethernet network via microwaves.

3d wireless printers are HOT. Read the Huffington Post article about Jordan French 3d Pizza Printer.

The IEEE 802.11 specifications are wireless standards that specify an "over-the-air" interface between a wireless client and a base station or access point, as well as among wireless clients. The 802.11 standards can be compared to the IEEE 802.3 standard for Ethernet for wired LANs.

10 Quick Wireless LAN Security tips from the maintainer:
  1. Change default Admin password on your Access Point (this includes the webinterface)
  2. Change your default SSID (network name)
  3. Disable the SSID broadcast option
  4. Change the default username/password of your wireless Access Point
  5. Enable MAC address filtering
  6. Turn off DHCP
  7. Refrain from using the default subnet
  8. Use the highest level of WEP/WPA(2)
  9. Firewall your Wireless Network segment
  10. Encrypt your wireless traffic using a VPN
(*) Note: these steps will give you basic protection. However, Wireless LAN Security -- and Network Security in general -- is more than just following "simple steps". Be sure that you understand the risks. Basic and advanced information about Wireless Networking and Wireless Security can be found on this website.
