Things could be worse

I often complain about the four networks that I can "see" from my chair in the front room. Wormulon seems to have it much worse than I do. And before you comment, yes, I do have to run one of those APs unencrypted. The device on the other end cannot "do" any form of encryption.

Not even WEP which, if it's all you have, you should still be using. My neighbor thinks I'm hacking his systems because I know the names of his machines. He is a heavy MS user (including SMB) and doesn't understand that when he turns off his AP (for security reasons) his machines will join any other wireless network. My network monitors are full of entries about "MoonGodess".

I guess it could be worse.
