Wireless Security

Quoting from a dialog I had on IRC recently:

*Me* Your neighbour allows you to share his broadband via his WLAN?
*He* Yes, and we use a MAC address access list to stop other from doing the same.
*Me* But you don’t need an access list if you use WPA or WPA2 because it doesn’t approve the security.
*He* Oh, we are only using WEP because my neighbour’s old 802.11b WLAN card doesn’t support it.
*Me* He should really buy a better one to able to use secure encryption.
*He* Yes, he’s going to do that because my notebook with builtin 802.11g has faster Internet access than his computer now.

Wireless security is a hopeless matter because people just don’t care. 🙁
