Thank you Repa... pretty interesting... one place I always see people using the convenience of wireless is at airports.... thinking that these people are executives and what not, I wonder what safety measures they would take.

The section "Encrypt your data with Windows XP Professional" is new to me.... thanks for the tip and yet another feature why I prefer XP Pro... even if its on my oldie!!!... lol
