    Wireless has opened a new and exciting world for many of us. Its technology is advancing and changing every day and its popularity is increasing. The biggest concern with wireless, however, has been security. For some time wireless has had very poor, if any, security on a wide open medium. Along with improved encryption schemes, a new solution to help combat this problem is the Wireless Intrusion Detection System (WIDS).
