Or a zero step process. What I discovered when I recently got my
laptop is that there were a total of 15 wireless networks in my
neighborhood, of which more than half were wide open.

For the first couple weeks I used one that was right across the street
from me and then made a startling realization. I was getting no
benefit out of my hardware firewall. So I plunked down $50 and got a
WAP and now have 100% coverage through my entire house.

Does it broadcast it's SSID, sure it does.

But you must have the WPA key and the WAP must know your MAC address if
you're going to be able to use it.
