Use the strongest network encryption compatible with your network devices
Verizon ships its FiOS Internet routers with WEP as the default encryption. While WEP is useful for preventing unintentional connections to your wireless home network and offers virtually universal compatibility with wireless network devices, it does not protect networks against a determined hacker. Other encryption standards, such as WPA and WPA2 are more secure and offer greater protection against hacking and security breaches. However, WPA and WPA2 may have compatibility issues with older types of wireless equipment.
