We are using a wireless LAN of 2 pc's. Our neighbors also are using a wireless. Since more and more people are using wireless connections, we are interested in any steps to secure our connection from outside hackers. I have heard of cases in which people have infiltrated wireless LANS and draining bandwidth of its victims.
I have been told there is a setting within Windows XP Pro to encrypt the network. But, I am unsure of how to do it within Windows XP Pro SP2. Once I learn the steps, will I need to carry out these steps on both pc's on the network.
Any information regarding the steps for encrypting the LAN will be appreciated.
