    Default How do we stop the bad people who know what we know!

    Ok, Discovered backtrack and aircrack about a month ago, have successfully cracked my network with 4 different wep keys + a couple of friends' (with permission, of course) and now know that with a big enough hdd I can crack pretty much any wpa key as well.

    So why even bother with security on my network?

    If I can crack it then who else might be watching me right now? Thanks to the support of this site, a couple of others like it and 1 particularly good inst. vid on youtube (Cheers kivi12k!) It took me a couple of weeks to learn everything I need to know while still holding down a full time job!

    I remember something about having a non-static key seems to me that that is a good... maybe the ONLY good way of keeping your network relatively secure from even the most amateur hackers. Anyone know of a way of setting this up on a standard router? I assume it will mean a physical 1st time connection for every new device on my network but that's a small sacrifice.

    Otherwise any consumer routers available that do the job?

    Cheers all.

    This is where again following industry best practices comes to mind. There really is not one right answer and probably billions of wrong ones.
    As for your "cracked...a couple of friends' (with permission, of course)" We do not condone this type of activity here.
    I would suggest you take that junk somewhere else.
    Furthermore none of this has anything to do with BT.
