Yesterday, I did put the last touch to my home wireless network. Thanks to my D-LINK DI-624 and a G650 card, I have been enjoying a 108Mbps link. They do this through a proprietary extension called "Super G".
During the configuration of the network, the Wireless Zero Configuration Service scanned all available networks and I was surprised to see that among the 4 networks found (not including mine) only 2 were secured so maybe this is a good time to remember owners of wireless networks that a minimum of security should be setup. I am not a network security expert so take the following list as a starting point for further discussion: I'd be happy if you can suggest more best practices.
There should be no surprise with this list: everything is pretty standard. Most of these are designed to slow down a potential attack rather than preventing intrusion. However, with all these speed bumps in place, it is likely that attackers will shift their attentions to less protected networks. Can anyone think about something I missed?
