A lot of it depends on the wireless protocol. WEP on 802.11b is terrible. Because of a flaw, most hackers can break that encryption in a few minutes. WEP is much better on 802.11g.

I used yahoo when I first started out...and then quickly moved! I was never satisfied with their hosting service. Try GoDaddy or 1and1...I've had good experiences with both of those companies.
