Last week our topic for Tech Talk on KTRS was about wardriving. Contrary to how the name sounds, wardriving isn't the name of some new blockbuster hit or video game. Wardriving is the act of driving around and looking for unsecured Wi-Fi networks. Our IT expert, Jeff Groby, joined the show to talk with listeners about how to protect their wireless network from the trend. In addition to discussing concerns with wardriving, Jeff also fielded multiple calls to answer tech questions during the segment on The Guy Phillips Show!
