There aren’t enough techies reading this to answer my question, I think, but I am going to put it out there anyway: Every ” “how to secure your wireless network”: ” document I have read does not mention restricting access to certain MAC addresses. That’s what I am doing and I don’t understand why that would be any less reliable as a security measure than WEP (which I don’t do to save a little bandwidth). Sure, someone could spoof a MAC address, but first they’d have to know what MAC addresses are open — which seems to be just as difficult as decrypting WEP…right?

Right. I have noticed the same thing…

Wow. Funny how little tidbits like this seem to pop up pretty frequently. I hadn’t thought of this until one of the guys I drill with mentioned this over the weekend. I haven’t updated my router (still using WAP), but it seems to be a swell idea.

The biggest thing that blows me away about this, though, is the random coincidence of this post and the conversation over the weekend.
