Advertisements Hi All - Just got a TiVo for Christmas, along with a USB Wireless Adapter. Very much enjoying it so far! I've searched the forums on issues related to security, but didn't find an answer to the following: As background: I have a desktop computer and a wireless router attached to it. Most of the time on the internet at my house is on the desktop, which would use a wired network connection. My work computer has built-in wireless, so occasionally I use it for web surfing when someone else is using the desktop, or when I'm in another part of the house. I originally set up my network using WPA-PSK security, but have downgraded it to WEP to use TiVo wireless. My main question: Is my exposure to using a weak encryption scheme such as WEP limited only to data that I transmit wirelessly? By that, is there there any way that a hacker could have visibility to data on a hard drive, on either my desktop or laptop? If I'm only exposed on transmitted data, I'm not too concerned. - I'll downgrade the security for now and wait (hope!) for TiVo to implement WPA. This is acceptable to me since my wireless usage is rather light, and WEP should at least deter a casual attempt to intercept my wireless usage. But if my main home computer is somehow exposed, I may reconsider and switch to a wired network connection or a phone connection. I appreciate any responses - I'm quickly coming up on the return deadline for my wireless adapter.
