   Yup, and..

   For liability reasons, I wouldn't share your bandwidth with another 
   household.  Who knows what they'll do with the connection. Download 
   illegal stuff, share illegal stuff, etc.. It's just bad juju.

   Make your SSID unpublished, run IPCop on a spare beige box, and use an 
   AccessPoint not a dual router-hub.
