That is an interesting idea wtgg. I will definitely think about working at that angle.
My advice from my heart is to drop this idea, wait for next better one. Meanwhile, get your degree.
However, go ahead and spend your money on flyer. Start trying it from your neighborhood ;and go solicite some homes. It will be a good experience.
If people didn`t care about network security at first place, the chance your flyer catch their attention is low. You best result probably is to remind a few people that they should be awared of network security. Then many of them would ask help from friends or family to get it done for free. That`s how I see it. If you actually get paid more than what you spent on flyer, your next beer is on me.
Thanks again for all your advice. I sincerely appreciate it.
Many of you have been recommending I move into a more specialized field of computer security and expanding upon my original service idea. Thing is, I want to keep it simple. If I was to branch off into various security services, that brings me into direct competition with the big boys like the geek squad and firedog. If I simply direct my focus on a specific service (to start, at least), then I feel like it would be a better direction for me.
I don`t think this is a big worry. IP address is only on surface, Lawenforcement will know it`s your neighbor but not you by looking into MAC addrsses.
Even you setup you WEP protection, a professional can get your code in less 5 minutes when you are using it. It takes a monitor program on server to report intruder which most home doesn`t have.... In short, enable security only give you false sense of secuity and protection against casual hack.
