wireless LANs- have a different set of security requirements from the wireless LAN used in your home or in small offices. Enterprise wireless security requires advanced mutual authentication
and strong encryption solutions. But what is needed to properly secure a home or small office wireless network? Below is a list of ten simple steps the average SOHO user can take to secure their own wireless networks.
