Very true, but at least it is a start when you consider that most routers come out of the box wide open. Now we just need to persuade them to change it to WPA with long non-dictionary keys.
To give them credit, with the infrastructure they have with the Home hubs allows them to push updates out to them, of course whether they use this to actually fix the vulnerabilities is another matter, but at least they are not relying on the end users to apply the fixes themselves.
Hi all, along the same lines some teachers at our school would like to connect there work laptops on there home wireless. We setup firefox for them to use and they can connect fine if there router has no wep/wpa security, but it will not allow them to enter any home wep or wpa keys at all so they cant connect if the router has any security.
We think it may be that they dont have the right permissions to be able to enter there own key, maybe one of the registery keys needs changing to be able to allow them to do this.
Does anybody have the same issue or know whats causing this or even know of a way to be able to get it so then can enter there own wpa key at home?
