People stealing my connection

The range is what like 75-100 feet at best?

So your side neighbors could get a weak connection depending on how close they lived or the dude with the laptop in your driveway would be on your network.

But if you ever do use it you could put WEP on it and thats a 128 bit enc. no?

Each computer is also logged to the router so if you have 1 computer thats on your router and 2 show up as active... uhh. ya should know somethins up.

Thats my unneeded opinion at least.

Rainstlin666 nothing against you or anything but, who ever told you that the range is like 75-100 feet was wrong, because wireless can go several hundred feet. if you house is made using wood studs, then it will go farther then if your house has steel studs or concrete walls. and if you put the router in or close to a window were alot of people place it then it will go 1500 feet with ease, because there is nothing in interfear. In a stardered home, it will go 200 feet no problem.

I don't know if it makes a difference or if it's something else but i live in the basement of my house. the whole concrete walls, cement floors with very thin carpet and no windows thing. (lost to roomate for upstairs on a game of blackjack.) :)

tested by my laptop it gets to about ten feet from my door.

I wish i had that kind of range.

what kinda router? that sounds like a problem with it, the 2.4ghz microwave signal will go though most things. except metal. and a few othere things.

http://www.jiwire.com/wi-fi-security-introduction-overview.htm

also the range depends on 802.11x that the wireless uses

1500 feet - yes - i agree - line of site is the general rule unless blocked

and as members have stated stuff can effect the range

again i think you should view jwire site -

i agree with all that, and that is a great site, but line of site does not matter, becuase they are omnidirectional antennas, if it was a directional antenna line of site would matter.
