I meant the site you are accessing when I said resource.

Does your workplace supply a VPN? If not, I would suggest having them implement one! Personally, I have a VPS with Openvpn installed so I can have more confidence using public wifi. When using public wifi, it doesn't really matter which encryption method is used if everybody can get on it anyways.

good point.  by resource do you mean the site or the wifi hotspot?  or both?

i cant avoid using wifi hotspots for these med security logins (due to work).

i am just trying to determine if i should bother changing my pw prior or not.  i know packets can be sniffed while i access sites but its far worse if someone gains my access for weeks or months vs the few days while i travel.  i'd like feedback for wpa, wep, & 0 encryption, since those are the 3 i'll come across.  (yes, i know wpa > wep > 0.)
