First time poster,

When ever I think about wireless I become paranoid about how secure it is, I know it's not 100% secure, I've read through the forums and various other sites and dictionary attacks are always mentioned. Is this the main way to crack wpa2 or are there other ways?

If it is the only way is having a wpa2 password consisting of a mixture of letters (caps and lower), numbers and special characters fairly safe?

What min length would you recommend for the password?

Firstly make 100% certain that your router does not have WPS at all, not just switched off, but not present.

Then make a random 63 character password and save it to a text file. Copy the text file to a flash drive and share it with those allowed on your network.

Use WPA2 and switch off your router when you are not using it.

Do not allow anyone on any PC / Laptop which has your WPA details unless you trust them.

Make sure every time you connect to "your" WIFI that it is exactly YOUR WIFI and not a honey trap.


Other than that, enjoy WIFI

Don't leave your router at a window in focal length of binoculars.

Actually one of the biggest problems for an attacker is range. If you have the option to reduce signal strength then do so. The less of your signal which is available outside your house the better for you.

You can also use tin foil as a reflector to restrain it a little
