More than 90 percent of the UK's home Wi-fi networks are secure, says Cisco.

According to research carried out by the organisation in conjunction with YouGov, 71 percent of Brits have a wireless network at home, compared to just 52 percent of Gemans and Swedes.

Of the devices connected to those networks, more than four in five were computers. Furthermore a third said they also had printers connected to their Wi-Fi network, and 22 percent revealed games consoles could also access the network.

Cisco said that 56 percent used their Wi-Fi network to access social networking sites at least once a month while 22 percent said they would consider buying a TV with internet access providing it has Wi-Fi connectivity.

"We expect to see more and more people convert from fixed line to wireless internet access during 2010, with even more wireless-enabled devices connecting to those networks, such as games consoles," said Gareth Jones, regional sales manager UK, Cisco.
