Re: Have i missed something?

You may not connect it, but it could:

a) Stop working until you connect it

b) Work, but it keep on displayin an error message because it is not connected. You can ignore it, but then you will miss any other errore message because of it - while your wife/girlfriend/etc, will tell keep on asking you why you don't connect that damned device and get rid of the message

c) Attempt to crack your WEP password (and even some naive WPA ones), after all being a fridge is a pretty boring job, and once you scan all those RFIDs that get in and out when the door is open, and run the compressor once in a while, your CPU has a lot of cycles free....
