You should ofcourse not be using AH to begin with. Do you really trust
the encryption layer of whatever hardware on top of your connection? I
would guess you're likely now trusting WPA or WEP, which is bad.
For a modern PC, the overhead of using esp= is minimal.


As time passes hardware approaches the effectiveness of a rock and
the reliability of a crack addict.
