Don't install wireless in the first place.

Re: How to secure wireless network

To secure your wireless network search Gateway IP Address create connect it to the Windows. Set the router access password private. Don't disable the 'SSID Broadcast but must disable remote login and wireless administrating.

Yeah, but that means no portability and requires wiring all over the places.

Wrong, that has to do with networking in general and routers perhaps but not security. Any wifi router these days permits WPA psk and a +20 randam charactor password is secure enough for consumer purposes. Concur business adds a radius server and perhaps more stringent firewall rules etc......

PS dont forget to change password of wifi router from default.

Securing your wireless network is actually one of the easier things to do but actually really hard to implement something that would be really of a very secure nature. But sometimes people have a problem with installing a wireless network actually works to their disadvantage because the mere fact of a wireless network makes it very open to attacks and other tries of the same nature.
