i just bought a new laptop with vista home basic installed and a verizon wireless broadband card. from my experience i know its very easy to access and use other peoples wireless connections and pc's from other pc's. iv'e noticed that when networks are discovered they are either secure or unsecure. i'd like to secure my connection so noone can use it to access the web from a remote pc. i was hoping someone might be able to help with good advice from experience or provide me with a link or two that might be relevant that would help make my connection to the web as secure as possible. i would use verizons help but its so vague its pretty much useless. side note is that i bought this laptop and card to trade remotely so it will be used to access my trading account regularly.
