    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a amazing job
    with this. Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Opera.
    Excellent Blog!

    It downloaded and installed seamlessly. 3G speed is nothing to write home about….but at least it's something.
    (.71Mbs download / .22Mbs upload)

    Can I secure the connection with a WPA key?

      Currently only WEP encryption is supported. For some additional security you could enable the MAC address filter and turn the Wifi connection only on when you need it…
