Our modem routers are often hidden away, behind a desk or some other shielded place, sometimes not well ventilated and certainly not good for wifi. One of the ignored, unloved but important IT devices.

Security too is an issue, they are usually four devices rolled into one, a switch, a router, firewall and a wifi access point, produced cheaply and security low for ease of setup.

Here is an interesting video on security issues with most home setups.

Thanks for sharing this video @Geffers. Always good to know how secure your router is and since we have changed services, I've been wondering about our security.
