A timely warning

For all those setting up a wireless network, I was lazy and couldn't bother to use a password with my Belkin ADSL/Router and had my networked hijacked at the weekend, with the hijacker putting in a there own password so locking me out, so don't be foolish and put a password in or if it comes with a default password change it to something new.

I now have a Netgear router that allows you to specify what is allowed to connect wirelessly, so if you have that option use it as well.

Everything else is locked up pretty well, I was just foolish and left that available, and luckily I spotted it pretty quickly and switched off the router.
