For the mechanic, an oil change is like riding a bike. Just have to learn to be a mechanic.
It's actually quite easy, you just have to read to learn how to do it, so most people don't.

This is a misrepresentation. I can make my WEP network infinitely harder to break into than a WPA2 network... security is multilayered.

No, someone just discovered (and more importantly shared) the already existing intelligence back-door. A new standard will soon be pushed with a new back-door.
On another note: Discussion of how to hack or circumvent controls is against the rules.
Nobody did such in this thread and I'm not going to lock it yet, just... keep this discussion away from the How-To's of it and we're good
