roaming access

by apotheon In reply to You Can't make Wi-Fi Safe ...

The major benefit to wireless networking is roaming access. This includes laptops, PDAs, and so on. This includes being able to provide access on-site to portable devices, and being able to use your laptop to connect to the access points in coffee shops.

One should definitely be sure to never communicate anything sensitive over a wireless network whose signal unauthorized devices can detect, though. In that, you're absolutely correct.
