Use a D-Link DWL-G122 USB WiFi Dongle - revisited

Guys, I understand security for your networks, and broadband speeds.

But if you "RTFM", it would be easier to just use "Access Control" on Airport Express or other routers that use that name, or "MAC-Address" under security?
And you can also just stop broadcasting your SSID along with MAC access control to safegaurd your network.
I have never had a break in using this type of security. And your network should work better, not having to encrypt packets. The router just ignores other client card it does not know. (apartment living and college towns suck...)

And 'yes' you can spoof MAC addresses, but you would need to know the list of MAC first, and WEP can be cracked; I did it to all my neighbors, so I could get their attention to change their channels to keep the noise down.
