Why do manufacturer's make non-secure wireless if it is perceived as a
Because the problems that result from insecure defaults become the
user's problem not the manufacturers. (User get his ADSL cut off, he
speaks to his ISP)

work out-of-the-box for the lowest-common-denominator user otherwise

It also becomes a transference of responsibility. 'We give you a 50 page
pdf manual on CD about how to configure our product -- if you don't wish
to use it to secure your network then that is your problem. But it will
work for you out-of-the-box so don't blame us.'
