hey all,

i've had a few problems with neighbours stealing my internet and i'm getting tired of having to change my password every week or so mad.gif
is there any way i can test the security myself?
i can use windows and linux (it's gonna go on a seperate computer) so what program/OS would be best for testing the security?
and how can i use that to it's full potential?
thanx smile.gif

well change your password to a long sentince. then hide your ssid and change it to somthing diffrent. then also use dynamic ip.

that should sort out the problem

You could also enable Mac Filtering and add in just your wireless devices and see if that keeps them out.

Find out the IP they're using, then check if their admin account is still with a default password. If it's not, wreck havoc BWA HA HAHA! biggrin.gif

this is really good to know. then what you do... i need to find the tool that gail breaks passwords. go into there pc. delete and copy stuff you want and do not need. get all the info you can get from them . like pc name , user name etc... then once done that go to the police and say this guy is hacking into your network. and you got proof as well. the router should keep a log of who is on the network. and take screen shots as well for proof. bam 2 years minimum prison sentice.

Welcome to the world of Wireless Security. First of all with most home wireless equipment it is almost impossible to completely secure it.

These are the steps I would recommend first implementing.
1. Change to password to a long password min of 18 characters. Use upper and lower case, numbers and special characters. (EXAMPLE) &H1s!SN0t^o&r$F7cU

2. Change your ssid and hide it

3. Enable MAC Filtering

4. Use Static IP addresses

5. Use wpa2

Beyond this you would need higher end equipment
6. Enable 802.11i paired with a Radius Server

7. Change the Wireless Access Point from a Wireless Router to a Wireless UTM (Example) http://www.juniper.net/us/en/products-services/security/ssg-series/ssg5/#ordering SSG-5-SH-W-xx with bundle NS-SMB-CS-SSG5 (~$800)

8. Set ACL's to move x IP to VLAN 100

9. VLAN 100 deny all

Certs:
ISC2: CISSP
Cisco: CCNP Route Switch, CCNP Security, CCIP (expired, now known as CCNP Service Provider), CCIE R&S and Security Written
Certs Coming Soon: CCIE Security Lab (2nd attempt)
