I've had a Dlink DI-624 router set up for 4 1/2 years with 128 bit WEP security which uses a 26 byte security key. I am aware that WEP is not bullet proof and there is software that can penetrate it if a determined intruder want's to gain access to my wireless. Recently my nephew dropped by to show off his new iPhone and informed me that it has WiFi and he he could use my router to connect to the Internet. His iPhone then finds my SSID and prompts for a password. Since my nephew doesn't know anything about my security configuration, I was confident that his attempt to access my router would be blocked when he couldn't provide the required security key. Ha! He then enters something, which I later found out was my telephone number, and bam he has Internet access, obviously bypassing my WEP security. He had been told he could access the internet this way by my DSL service provider, Verizon. My question is a simple one: Is there some kind of a back door that Apple and/or Verizon can use to bypass basic router security? Is this a Dlink issue or are all routers at risk? If anyone can shed any light on this situation please enlighten me.
