More and more households and business are setting up wireless networks every day. It's a great way to free yourself from those wires that clutter up everyone's desk.

The thing with a lot of wireless network equipment is that it comes with no security enabled, whatsoever. People hear that they should make their wireless more secure, so they go and look for advice. And this is where it can all go wrong.

IT Consultant Russell Card has looked at a lot of wireless network security articles on the Web and was shocked at what he saw. What he found was advice on security that was a mixture of pointless, laughable and downright terrifying. This drove Russell to write his own Wireless Network Security article (http://www.ukitbits.com/wireless/wnsec.html), which details what simple measures you should take to secure your wireless network and those that you should avoid.

The article is part of a whole section on wireless networking at Ukitbits.com (http://www.ukitbits.com). The site was launched by Russell Card, an IT Consultant with over 15 years network design and security experience, to bring useful information, hints and tips to anyone who needs it. Information at the site is available for free and is written to be readable by IT beginners and experienced users alike.
