Usually I will do them a favor and change the SSID of these open routers to
Or in one case I put my phone number as the SSID, they called and I explained kindly what they were doing.
most people go to wal mart, buy a router and just plug it in.
I am Comptia NET+ certified, the best ecryption is WPA2-AES, do not use WEP.
Personally I ran 1000Base-T though the house and cabled everything in except my wifes laptop, my windows phone and her android. I don't broadcast an SSID, DHCP is disabled, using DDWRT I turned down the transmit power and I use MAC filtering.Edited by fg2chase - 2/8/11 at 10:37pm
