I understand this is off-topic, but I thought with the plethora of security
people on this list, I could get some direction and reliable information.
If necessary, please reply off list, because I know people need on list
material to be ontopic.
I am moving into an apartment August 1, and I want to have some wireless
networking for my laptop I will be buying. It will be a combination
wireless/wired network with an OpenBSD machine serving as the main
gatekeeper at my broadband connection.
What I could really use is a starting place, for reliable information on
securing that network. I am more than willing to read manuals,
documentation, but I need a place to start. (Googling is fine, but I have
no way of verifying the accuracy of what comes up.) What information do
the people on this list find reliable, and secure enough so I don't get
people accessing behind my firewall using some wireless technology? A few
links to get me started is all I ask.
Thank you in advance,
