Any Way to Test Wireless Network Security
by hatchness - 1/13/06 4:13 PM
I have just installed the DI-624 to set up my wireless network at home. I followed the instructions, changed the SSID, changed the admin password, and enabled WEP 128bit encryption with a random key. (I was going to use WPA, but my laptop does not accept WPA, so I am using WEP.) My landline computer has Internet Security with firewall enabled and Internet virus scan.
First, is there an easy way to test to see if I have adequately protected my wireless network so that no one can use my network or gain access to my home computer?
Second, I haven't figured out how to properly set up the firewall on the DI-624 itself. Is this necessary or is having the firewall on my computer sufficient.
I'm a newbie at the whole wireless realm, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
