    Default Unsecured Wireless Network

    Sometimes I have to connect to an Unsecured Wireless Connection. What kind of protection does Zone Alarm give me from other people on the unsecured wireless connection?

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
    Software Version:6.5

    Why is it unsecured? Why can't you secure it?

    It is the wireless link that is the weak link. All communications over an unsecured wireless network link can be captured and read by anyone with a packet sniffer. Do you log onto web sites that require user names and passwords? I hope not!

    Once connected to the network, everything else works just like it would on a wired network. ZA provides you with exactly the same levels of protection but remember it doesn't provide you with any protect against the eavedroppers on your wireless link.
