How do I tell what security protocol a network is?

What's the best way to setup a home network? Why should I care about BGP?

How do I tell what security protocol a network is?

When I try to connect to a wifi network, I don't get which security protocol the network is. I want to tell when its WEP wifi and when its WPA, WPA-2, etc. I Googled it, and couldn't find much. I found that the results were about how to hack wifi, not how to tell which security protocol the wifi has. Any advice?

Try to connect to it, look for some option like properties, and it should tell you. WAPs conveniently broadcast what security protocol they're using. Every computer (phone laptop etc.) I've used has had some option to display what the security protocol is.
Those who create and rely upon brilliant and complex creations are often destroyed by some idiot plugging an infected usb stick somewhere they shouldn't have.
