What are three basic ways to prevent Wi-Fi intrusions in Corporate intranets?


  • You should reset and then customize the default SSID or the ESSID whatever you have running on the access point. This could be an easy access point for someone if they just try common SSID's.
  • A lot of people forget to change the default admin password required to change router settings. So make sure you do this , it is an easy step to up your security level.
  • Another thing they suggest is to install a RADIUS sever which can check to see if the laptop is on the same network and check it's credentials using an ACL.
  • Also you should not have an open network you need to enable WPA or WPA2 encryption because these are the most secure WEP as noted in the text is very easily cracked.
  • Every once and a while you should try war drive around your campus to see if there are any access points out there that a naive user has set up that may have easy access to your system.
