How To: Hide your WIFI signal from sniffers
Hide Your Wireless Network - The top video clips of the week are here
Many people like myself use WIFI to surf, the feeling of being able to sit anywhere in your home and surf through the Internet away from the noise of room mates or stream a movie while you relax in bed is a huge boon.
Then you realise that your offering up free Internet connections for your neighbours and your bandwidth is suddenly sapped by leeching vermin...
Your first step should always be to limit access with a password to your network, If you don't then frankly you deserve to be leeched off.
Ok so now only those people you want to be on your network can be on your network...or so you think...sniffers have a myriad of different cracking software to beat your password... so its time to follow the video and take make your Internet your own again.
good luck with this guys, it is reasonably simple and can and will save your bandwidth and speed up your downloads.
OK I'm done watch the vid and I'll see ya later!
NOTE: ok now some people may have trouble logging onto there router manually in order to effect changes, if you have your install disc for your router use that to access your router IP and control system as this is the safest and easiest way to modify your settings.
