Help me!

If you are or ever have been a college student who has used your college's wireless network... could you do me a favor and answer a couple of questions, for a paper I'm writing about wireless networks? Nobody can view your answers, so you can be honest :)

Poll #217763 wireless

What tasks do you use the wireless network for? (e.g. web, email, AIM, ssh...)

Does the wireless network require encryption?

No
2(25.0%)
Yes, as part of the protocol (e.g. LEAP, WPA, ...)
1(12.5%)
Yes, as additional software (e.g. Cisco VPN)
5(62.5%)
Not sure
0(0.0%)

If you answered No to #2, would you use any of these:

Encryption software that must be run whenever you establish a connection.
1(33.3%)
An upgrade to your wireless card to enable encryption, which would have to be installed and configured once.
1(33.3%)
I would not like either of these options.
1(33.3%)


Thanks to everyone who does this!

"An upgrade to your wireless card to enable encryption, which would have to be installed and configured once."
I answered that as affirmative, though I didn't answer anything else, because I have no experience. My JCs don't offer wireless, and I don't have a laptop anyway.
