I have been watching this thread for a long time. I install wireless networks in my job, and have a WiFi card in my lap top. As stated already, if you are going to install wire less at home or anywhere. Set up the security. follow the book and keep your codes safe.
I have used our wiFi every where we can. it beets the slow dial-up. The folks offering the service give you access to the net. If you have e-mail, I have found a few places I can check it without signing up. I can't send but can receive.
