I am SO GLAD I was lucky enough to have strolled upon such an incredible website several weeks ago!

Wireless is just this, you don't need wires to connect devices together.

Although what you say is true it is possible for someone to access a wireless network from outside of your home or office you can prevent it. I have my wireless router setup using encryption and I also have it setup only to allow certain IP addresses to connect to the network.
Another board has a posting by some one who has a home wireless and the neighbor is now linked -inadvertantly- into the system. Not good. The link actually occurs 'inside' the firewalls. Sooo not good.
Also there is a possibility of "drive bys" using their wireless to connect to your system.
Knowing nothing about this stuff but what is posted in places like this would suggest that you check to see if there are any different 'channels' like there are with phones so you could try changing the settings.
