  Securing AirPort Extreme Networks with WPA
Subject:   Wired EQUIVALENCY, not security

As mentioned by someone else, WEP and WPA only encrypt WIRELESS packets. Once they're on the 'Net, they're back in plaintext.


Wireless encryption is pretty useless. Just let your network move packets around. Encrypt your data at the APPLICATION layer (remember the OSI 7-layer dip?).
