Wireless networking has become an extremely common household technology in a matter of only a few years. Concerns for privacy have become more relevant than ever, with more cases of identity and data theft occurring everyday. Initially, consumer grade wireless technology was distributed without security being a major concern. Today, almost every consumer grade wireless router comes with either "out-of-the-box" encryption or with relatively easy to follow instructions on how to properly secure the household wireless infrastructure. In this paper we investigate wireless technology and the implications related to the privacy of the average user.
