[QUOTE=Arachne;2660675]@Allan - love the idea of switching the details to a competitor’s, I’ll definitely be using that in the future
@Wombler - hmmm, another good idea ;)[/QUOTE]
Yeah, I wonder how many WiFi thieves have tried to access customer’s
WiFi routers using Belkin, Linksys or Trendnet default codes.
(I only buy and install Netgear routers.)
Remember you don’t have to block them perfectly, you just
have to delay them sufficiently so that they give up and
seek greener pastures elsewhere.
Waste enough of their time and they will move on.
In a theoretical sense ANY passcode can be "broken"
given sufficient time and determination.
the primary object of the code maker is not to make
an impenetrable code, but just to make it counter-productive
for the other guy to keep trying.
BTW, I am a certified evil genius, or at least two of my former employer’s
patent lawyers have told me so.
You’d never guess what two of my patent applications were for.
BTW, the next WiFi router I’m setting up is going to be named “DEA Task Force”
