You do understand that you have to make up your own key to use right?

Anyway, I'm also using WEP, I know it's easy to analyze the key of it (Had to do it myself in class), but my Nintendo DS doesn't support WPA and I don't think there are much computer savvy people around here anyway so :P

I just use MAC address filter.  It only allows addresses I've listed to connect.

I run a similar setup. I ran WEP for a wile then when I heard it was crack able I switched emediatly. Then again I live in a area where no one would no how to steel my connection. So instead I "borow" every one else's.

RE: Is your wireless network secure?
I don't have a wireless network setup atm but when I do, I use WPA or WEP :)
Wireless networks at my place are temporary and no one here uses wireless so I guess its pretty safe for me to use it the way I do :)

It's not your neighbours to be worried about really. When you see a white van outside your house with an aerial coming from the roof you should start to panic :P.
