The tools you need before you surf again...

Protect your connection to the internet
First, using a high speed internet connection like cable, fiber-optic, or dsl is much faster. But, without a well-protected connection, your information is at considerable risk. It is best to have your high speed connection hard-wired. In other words, though they are very popular, wireless connections are much riskier in terms of security. So, if you have a choice when setting up your internet, go with hard-wiring. Second, consider using OpenDNS . As it protected me last night from what was a potential disaster, it can protect you (not to mention making faster connections possible).
