Hello,

I have a home network, hard wired 2 PC's & printer to a Linksys wireless 6 router. I use the wireless capability for WiFI to my two TV's.

My son was able to get on the internet without using a password. When I map a network drive I must use ID and Password. I have a firewall

Is my home network vulnerable? My son see "Linksys" as a open wi-fi resource with his MAC, but since he is unable access my network printer

Yes, it sounds like your wireless is not secure. Go into your wireless router configuration and turn on WPA2 personal security with AES encryption and use a passphrase for security -- write it down, as all connecting wireless devices will need it.

Any particular machine may have its own security, requiring a user ID and PW, but if a machine can get Internet access without those, you are not secure.
