That Wi-Fi network you thought was secure? It ain't

Wireless is not safe by definition

The most secure way of communication on a small network is bij wire. Nobody outside your wired network will know it is there, thus making it a less (if at all) likely candidate to intrusion. Wireless networks advertise themself (just start up your laptop, and you'll see what I mean), more or less inviting anyone to at least give it a try. Anyone familiar with a little training in Electronic Warfare can tell you that.

Unless there is a seriously compelling reason to set up wireless, I always recommend against it. Don't use it just because you can.
