A Few Questions
Just with my recent troubles in relation to wireless networks, I have a few general questions.
1.) Is wireless security important? Is it only a matter of stopping people using your connection or can they get access to your computer?
2.) Are there many differences between the different formats? I read WEP is easily cracked but WPA is better? Is there much difference between WPA and WPA2? Do they use a different amount of resources, ie is one faster than another?
3.) AES and TKIP. What are they and what is the diffence? Again, is there a performance difference between the two?
4.) Does the wireless security just add a password to access the network or does it encrypt all information sent over the network?
5.) What are MAC clients and do I need to worry about them?
There may be a few more but they've slipped my mind just now.
