Question from bestjsg
"I have just bought a SMC wirelss router and 2 USB adaptors last night, they are all refurb. with 90 days warranty, all including tax is $ 130.00 CDN and the best thing is they all work and set up is very easy.

However, I do have a few questions and hope all you experts here can help..

1. People are saying you should enable encrytion for the network, which I did choose the 128 bit encrytion, the SSID is automatically set as default , I have heard ppl saying disable or remove the SSID is a safe practice too, but how do you do that ?
