    I was setting up my son's laptop for school and a wireless lan he will
    use with other guys in an apartment. Before I could do anything here at
    home, the computer found 3 other unprotected lans in my immediate
    neighborhood which begs the question, what can I do in preparing a
    wireless lan that would offer some security from outsiders? Static
    addressing comes to mind, but what else?
