Right, I misread the question.  I am not accessing my desktop via the 
Internet.  (Which I take to mean that I don't want VPN for what I am doing.)

I'm studying everyone's responses, and checking some stuff out on the 
Internet.  I'm leaning toward buying a commercial disk encryption program and 
a firewall.  I can now see that my laptop should be encrypted regardless of 
whether I am using a wireless connection.

I appreciate people responding to a legal ethics question that they otherwise 
would not be interested in.  So a specific "Thank You" to Tony, Alex, Bill 
Broadley, and Brian.
