George Ou (who runs an informative blog if you have never visited it before) has an article about the nexgen hacking tools for cracking wireless networks… He also includes a list of best management practices to help keep your wireless network as secure as possible.

One concern that I have is that hardware manufacturers are slow to update device firmware to support more secure technologies. Fortunately for me, my WAPs that I have deployed in my office are using WPA with AES encryption.

Aaarrggghhh.. Sometimes the battles we fight as net and sysadmins can be challenging.
