Hi All

I use a Clearwire Router for Internet usage in my apartment provided by the serviced apartment agency. How do I find out whether the connection is a secure or unsecured connection. For internet I just plug the router and use it for browsing the net. Is there anyway that I can connect to other secure networks ?

If you are connected to a secure site, it will be an https site, not an http site. In addition, the padlock will appear on the status bar.

If that's not answering the question, we'll need more information.

I was asking about the connection which I am using and not the site. Hope I am correct...

No way of knowing anything about your connection, you'd have to get that information from the apartment management.

Dude are you using a Clearwire modem in your house plugged into your computer? Or are you using WiFi to connect to your apartment complex. Alot of Clearwire customers think that Clearwire is WiFi which is incorrect. Also, that would be one nasty connection for an apartment complex, 1.5/2MBPS you need to have atleast 4 modems per 10 people with Clearwire.
