Security Alert!!!

If you think your computers can be safe with no security or encryption on your home wireless network, think again! Wireless devices "broadcast" your network traffic, even if that device is not in the communication path. If you don't change your network name, SSID and Administrator login information, anyone can take over your entire network with relative ease!

There are entire websites devoted to mapping out "password free" wireless zones in their cities, so that hackers and other opportunists can use your un-secured wireless network to conduct their illegal activities.


Most home networks using wireless technology are not protecting these Internet connections and are extremely vulnerable to attacks, hacking, identity theft, data loss and other threats! Law Enforcement tracks down illegal Internet activities using customer accounts and IP Addresses from Internet Service Providers (ISP's). If someone is using your Internet for illegal activities, it will be your door the FBI or Police come to for an investigation!
