If you use WPA/WPA2 security and a high quality key/password (long, random, and based on a large character set, such as the ones available at, no one is going to get into your wireless network. No how, no way, not by brute force anyway.

IOW, the key (no pun intended) is to never use a key that someone can guess! But obviously if you use a weak key/password (some ppl do for the convenience), then obviously you’re far more vulnerable. You could add MAC filtering as a secondary protection, but MAC filtering is easily circumvented through ARP poisoning (at least by anyone worth worrying about).

Bottomline, use WPA/WPA2 w/ a high-quality key/password and you won’t have to worry about it.
