Hmm, somebody has a brand new wireless network…

And…it is unsecured <sigh>  You’d think that such products would come with warnings now.  Oh, yeah, they do, but you’ve got to **read the installation manual** to know to run the wizard.


When I started work at my current job I was shocked to discover our wireless access point was unsecured, AND the power and network cables were squashed in the cable cabinet door – an extremely shoddy installation.  I have no idea *why* the previous IT company did not bother to secure the access point, but you can bet *that* situation has been changed, and the physical installation environment is also much improved.


That is a very strong signal; I reckon the new network is right next door.
