Re: Security of encrypted WiFi connection in the hotel.

said by JoeSchmoe007:

Hotel I will be staying at has WiFi that is password-protected (don't know if it is WEP or WPA or WPA2). Each guest is given the password if requested.

Does it mean that this connection is not anymore secure than unencrypted connection? I am thinking since everyone knows password they can just capture anybody's network traffic and decrypt it, is that right?

Last time I checked the Internet is not secure so what difference does it make if a WiFi radio in a hotel is secure?
