There are no security risks when you doing it in your house but risks caught when you sit, stand outside houses or in the car for long period that will raise suspicious.

My wifi network locked with assinged MAC codes only from my laptop, itouch and UMPC that are allowed to access the internet and people are not allowed to access it without my permission.
