+ 0 Votes Wires may not be that bad. ericson007 April 4, 2013 at 11:35pm PST If you have some hardware lying around. A good way of protecting the wifi a little more is to run it behind a firewall. Also before having access to the net to have a captive portal to authenticate through, if possible also WPA 2 - Enterprise. Not really likely to keep out someone really determined, however, it will beat almost certainly 99.9% of the script kiddies.Your brother is a very smart man though. With the ever increasing speeds of ISP services, I do not understand why you want wireless. At home here I have a 1gbps up/down fiber connection. Connecting to that with a wireless device loosing 480 mpbs on my last test, I would rather just stick with wire as well. Ever tried CIFS shares from a cheap non enterprise NAS over wireless. It's a dog, not that it is the fastest protocol ever, but wire does help data move along.Especially in the U.S. where walls are generally dry wall. Cutting away, pulling wire and fitting a wall cat 6 plug is not that difficult and really increases the neat factor.
