•Use as low an RF power level (AP) as possible (100mw, 10mw, 1 mw)
•Place each AP in a central location (to correctly define
•Use specialized antennas to beam the microwave RF energy
in the direction desired- not
into your neighbor’s home! The AP antennas that come standard are “omni-directional” and send
energy out equally in all three
dimensions. This may be problematic.
•If possible, unplug power to the AP when network use is
completed each day. This shuts
down the wireless and prevents intrusion 100%.
measures-- Security is like an ONION (layered).
•Configure a unique SSID (service set identifier) on each
AP and turn off AP
“beaconing” (AP SSID advertisement).
•Configure MAC “filters” on the APs-- to block
•Install data encryption on all APs and wireless devices
