I have a funny little problem. I have a secure wireless network using a Linksys wrt54g which has given me no problems for a long time and I am very happy with it. When I set up my network, I had to punch in my encrypted key to connect to it so i knew it was secure.
Recently though, I disconnected from it to use a different wireless network. When I came back home, I tried to connect to my network and it asked me for a network key (which is good). But, I found out that I was able to type in any network key (including leaving the field blank) and it connected to my network anyway. This makes me nervous since this makes me think anyone can do this now.
Does my laptop remember my network key and ask me for one as a formality when I connect to my wireless network? Or is my used-to-be-secure network connection now unsecure? How would I go about testing such a thing since this laptop is my only wireless device I own?
