    Question How do I protect my laptop in an open wireless setting?

    I have seen items that protect you wireless web use through USB like ironkey.com has. Is there another way I can protect myself (my laptop) from attacks or snooping while I am in an airport or coffee shop or hotel using the public wireless? I understand this forum will probably not have the information on this but I figure you guys definitely would know who does. I want to learn how to do this without having to buy a USB devise. Or am I secure without anything all I need to do is apply certain settings I would like to read up on that.
    Thanks

    *edit*
    I found this myself sorry for troubling any of you.
