Windows 7: Wifi over Powerline - security - e.g. Devolo dLAN 500 Mbps WiFi

Wifi over Powerline - security - e.g. Devolo dLAN 500 Mbps WiFi

I am considering using a powerline system to give me additional wifi cover, but I am unclear how the available wifi connection is protected. They make a great deal of encrypting the traffic over the power circuit, but no mention is made of protecting the wifi connection. Surely, the risk with these is the same as with a wireless router?

Anyone got any experience of this?

They did a review of it here Devolo dLAN 500 AV Wireless+ Review | Expert Reviews.

In the review they mention it comes with a default password that you can change later.
