Cautions: Before you connect make sure you un-share any
folders that you may have shared on your boat network. Windows XP (and
lower) doesn’t recognize the difference between your boat network and your WiFi network. So when you share
a folder on a network and then connect to an
un-secure wireless network, EVERYONE can see your shared files. Even though
you have a firewall setup, people will be able to access shared folders
unless you have taken extra security precautions.. There are also people who
will try and
hack into your connection.
