    Wifi usage survey.

    I am trying to get an idea how people implement/use wifi. I wonder if you could reply to the 7 questions below.


    About your wifi ap:
    1. What type is it:
    - Wifi AP, with router and 4/5 port switch
    - Stand alone Wifi AP connected to the network?
    - A wifi card connected to a pc?

    2. What make and model is it?

    3. Are you using this Wifi device in home or office?

    4. Where is your wifi access point connected? Switch/hub? Router? Firewall?

    5. Do you use WEP keys to restrict access to your wifi access point?

    6. Do you use any other cryptography like LEAP or others to encrypt and control access to your wifi network?

    7. Do you use a VPN to secure the wifi?
