More wireless networks starting to pop up near my house.

I noticed tonight that I’m seeing more and more wireless networks pop up as being available in my house, in addition to my own hidden, secured wireless network. To my neighbors’ credit, only one is showing up as being unsecured. Most of the others are being managed and WEP encrypted. While WEP isn’t as good as WPA, it is better than nothing and will keep casual bandwidth thieves from stealing yours or doing something else more nefarious.

    This is really running ramped in our neighborhood and surrounding area, the Local tv station went around war driving, filming the whole thing and went to peoples doors telling them that there systems “being WAP’s and Computers” were totally wide open and that anyone could get into there home network and computer. The majority said they were going to return the WAP’s because its not working properly. Well Duh when you leave the default setup being login and password what do you expect?
