The downside of a wireless network is that, unless you take certain precautions, anyone with a wireless-ready computer can use your network.

And if an unauthorized person uses your network to commit a crime or send spam, the activity can be traced back to your account.

Don't let that happen to you. Listen and learn how to make your home wireless network at safer and more enjoyable feature of being on the Internet.
