    Big-time Wi-Fi security for the small office

    Big-time Wi-Fi security for the small office


    By Becky Waring

    Small businesses tend to skate by the Wi-Fi security front; turning on encryption and changing the router password is about as far as many SMBs go.

    But with sensitive customer and business data at stake, can you really afford not to take Wi-Fi security seriously? The answers are cheaper and easier than you think.

    Dear Becky,

    Can you please explain the difference between the RADIUS authenticated wireless network and the segregated guest wireless network? This is from the section entitled "WPA-Enterprise setup with headaches".

    Wouldn't making a guest wireless network be the exact security hole you were trying to prevent by making a RADIUS enabled wireless network? (Let's assume the employees would be good and use their RADIUS accounts, and ONLY guests would use the guest wireless network.) Can you provide examples of resources that RADIUS users would have access to, that users on the guest network would not?

    Thank you,
    Peter
