How NOT to protect your wifi.

Everyone has a wifi network these days and this is good, as wifi networks make it easy to connect all our devices to the net wherever they may be. This of course leads to a question. How secure is your network? Most people seem to think that a passkey/password is enough to keep your network from intruders. I’d like to show you why you need more than a password to keep your network safe.

Please note, I’m not an expert Network Administrator or certified Cisco Engineer (heck, I don’t even know how to make a network cable(that’s not really true, but point is I just know some stuff about networks, but not enough to be called an expert ok?))

That said, I’d like to share with you some tips on how NOT to protect you wifi network. This could also be read as how to infiltrate a weakly secured wifi connection. The side of the river you choose to stand on is totally up to you.

Ok, so let’s get into it shall we?

Migrating to Linux

Linux 3d Image

A friend of mine from college always talked about linux. He swears by it. Everytime he talked about it, i always kept thinking,

But why would anyone want to change from Windows, why bother?

That is what I always asked myself, so I had a long talk with him and had him explain to me the benefits of switching OSes…..He didn’t do a really good job of it, except tell me how cool it would be to use the command line for everything and not use point and click, like most of us are used to doing. To all Linux geeks out there, here’s a tip, when introducing a noob to linux, you might not want to scare them with command line(or terminal as it should rightfully be called) jargon, at least not until they understand a little.

I wasn’t dissuaded however, I still wanted to know more…..for me, the reason was just for the fun of it. I’m an avid learner so it was a challenge more or less.
