You've set up your wireless network. You've been good, too – you gave your router a unique ID that won't be easily mixed up with other wireless routers and you have secured the network with a password so not just any passer-by can piggyback off your network as a means of downloading South Park episodes. You don't have to worry about hackers now, right?

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
