we all know how easy cracking a wep or wpa..or any varyation of this can be.Any 12 year old kid
can watch a video on youtube download the programs and penetrate your security and then view your actions and more.
My question is,asides from runing wires through your house what precaations can you take to protect from passive and active attaks such as arp poisoning which can be used to view you passwords and such?(i know theres firewalls but those,from my litle experiance cant protect from viewing the content!)

I think arp poisoning can be stopped if your switch supports 'port security'. Port Security allows you to bond one phyiscal port on a switch to one MAC address.

Wep is"old hat", try Ultra VPN. It is free and open source. Kindly look up "Understanding How To Bolster Password Security"---"this is the heading of a post on page 3" :)(y)

Dear zack333,
"The VPN-1 software is installed on a separate operating system, which provides the protocal stack, file system, process scheduling and other features needed by the product. This is different from most other commercial firewall products like Cisco PX and Juniper firewalls where the firewall software is part of a proprietary operating system." Source :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Check_Point_VPN-1

OR you can marry the daughter of a politburo member in China and use"THE GOLDEN SHIELD" FOR EXCLUSIVE USE THERE!:D http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Shield_Project
