Securing Your Wireless Network

Wireless computing is becoming a common practice in families as more and more computers are added to home networks. As a result, I updated the post from last fall on Setting Up a Home Network with Windows Vista, which has turned out to be a very popular collection (at least according to the the blog analytics).

Included in the update are two publications from Ars Technica. The most recent is Joel Hruska's "The ABCs of securing your wireless network" which is an introduction to the basics of securing your home wireless network. It includes the most relevant high-level points home users need to know in order to secure a network of game consoles, phones, and PCs. Although this publication also includes some of the material from the original "blackpaper", that has been included as well.

As it turns out, Vista4Beginners also have two new tutorials on network printers. Both have also been incorporated in the original posting.
See the complete list of helpful documents in Setting Up a Home Network with Windows Vista and learn how to not only set up a wireless network but also keep it secure.

Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
