I recently drove from Wexford to Dublin. I decided to scan for wireless networks on the way. Some interesting stats
I found 192 Access Points;
Security types were;
Of the 192 AP's, 128 were Eircom mac Addresses
Of this 128 , 15 had their SSID's non default (13 were netopia mac 00:0f:cc)
Of the remaining 113, 62 were wep, 7 open and 44 WPA/WPA2
Of this 113, 67 were netopia macs 00:0f:cc, the ones with extra easy to crack wep.
Of this 67, 5 were open and 1 was WPA/WPA2 and 61 were still WEP.
What this tells you is that nearly every one with a netopia that had bad wep, have not changed their setup. Eircom need to fix this.
