    dude, you’re using WEP…… OF COURSE ITS NOT SECURE!!!!
    it can be broken in minutes, like 5 minutes, and from far away, not sitting right next to your router!

      Sounds like you have the wrong key to be honest.

    The problem with wireless these days is that people are constantly using some form of encryption and to be honest, Eircom’s setup on the Netopia boxes are not the most secure. Basically one of the best things to do is only allow internet access via the MAC Address on your wireless network card, any other device that is not on the list does not get internet access. Also, that configure the router can only be done via a network cable connection, with a changed user name and password. The flaw with the Eircom Netopia boxes is that the page that the page Tom Doyle was referring to (http://s4dd.yore.ma/eircom/) also can give you the manufacturer’s user name and password to the box…not the Administrator’s account. This is also know as the backdoor account. Until Eircom changes their standard Netopia switches, Customer’s will suffer from people doing what’s known as “War Driving” where sad individuals can scann whilst driving and see ssids setup kindly by Eircom.

    If you’re really smart with your router and understand how it works. You can changes the OS on it or download it from a 3rd party specialist. But I can’t stress enough, if you make a mess of it, it can permanently damage the Netopia box. This cannot be fixed by Eircom for free either when they inspect it.

    Always use WPA and change the SSID. :)
    Not hack proof but It’s at least more secure then WEP & a default SSID.

    I can’t believe the amount of people in my neighborhood who have unsecured open wifi … lol

    Hey silver, not really a hack as it’s all done for ya buddy, it would be if it had decent security and you accomplished this on your own merit. It’s down to the guys that wrote the program…..not the user. Enjoy though

    Ronan, have you tried connecting to the Eircom box with the wireless security turned off? If you connect via a network cable and turn off the security and see if you can connect wirelessly then. Shows if the wireless is working properly and then. From what you wrote, I would agree with Tom Doyle.

    :rolleyes: @ Jeff…..

    Of course it’s a “hack”! That’s like saying using a brute force hacking tool isn’t “hacking” because it’s doing all the work….

    The fact he got in has nothing to do with the tool, the tool just made his life easier. The reason he was able to hack in was because the gobshites left a gapping hole in how they generated the WEP keys.

    You could work out the key with a piece of paper….

    I always use WPA instead of WEP and I also make sure that the SSID is being changed. That way I feel much secure. :)

    Yes I fully agree with changing SSID. But if there is a will there is a way. Its really hard to brake software securities but few wrong clicks and you can let someone get in. Always use firewall , anti-virus , and always use own unique passwords.
