Wireless Encryption Not Invulnerable to Hackers

Unlike an Ethernet network, which connects its users through cables, a wireless network sends data through the air on radio waves. This makes the information traveling through the network more vulnerable, because anyone with a wireless network card could conceivably tap into those radio waves, log on to an unprotected network and intercept personal data. WEP was designed not as the ultimate security tool but to make information on the wireless network as safe as it would be on a wired network.
