Question about Computers & Internet
If it is hard wired, it is secure. If it is wireless, then it may not be. If you just took it out of the box and hooked it up without setting a passphrase or security key, then it is probable not secure. Get a friend to try to connect to it from inside your house. If you are broadcasting your SSID, it will be the strongest signal. If his computer sees it, have him try to connect. If he can then it is not secure. If he is ask for a passphrase or security key, then it is secure. The reason I say to have a friend try it, is because your machine may already have the security info stored and that would not be a good test.
Get back to me with the brand and model number if you need directions to make it secure.
