The article focuses on taking precautions when using a wireless fidelity (WiFi) network. It is mentioned that devices that do not use wires are able to transmit information to other devices through the use a carrier signal. Ethernet devices have a media access control (MAC) address where users can check whether the connected MAC addresses are trusted while others are not are blocked from other MAC addresses. Ways for keeping the WiFi connection safe through the use of wired equivalent privacy (WEP) keys are discussed.
