thought i would post about the article I just wrote about netowrk security.

This guide is for entertainment purposes only. If you actually set your network up in the above fashion, you are seriously asking for a beating, and not a normal beating, a big chuck norris foot to the face beating.

I had a couple of wireless APs running, but not connected to anything for a while. I didn't have any security turned on on them, either. I'd love to know if any/many people wasted time trying to tinker with the network that physically wasn't connected.

Kinda wasn't funny IMO.

Would have been lots better if it was some hilariously deviate honeypot which blessed all it could with epic horse porn of gigantor proportions.

Sorry, not funny. Also, so of the stuff he is implying would be good for security is not actually wireless security anyway.

If you want to have fun with someone "stealing" your internet, then do something like this:

cheers for the comments guys. However absolutely nothing in the guide 'IS' good security, not sure which part your referring to bnew. For wireless, the best security you can practice for home wireless is WPA with an extremely long and strong password. A lot of people who setup wpa, still set their password to things like 'wireless' 'password' or the ap name, on the assumption that WPA is the god of security. All timmy has to do is de-auth a client, grab that four way handshake, and bruteforce the hash, which can be done in a blink if the pass is weak.
So if you actually care about your wireless security, then WPA strong password, is a good start (emphasis on the word start)
