Possibly improve wireless reliability and speed, nearly by accident
Authored by: wilton on Jun 06, '07 02:42:52PM

You didn't really read the 'article' did you ?

I never implied MAC was mac/pc, I know perfectly well what it is. By filtering it you get less automated traffic trying to authenticate with your router. You know that windows by default checks the nearby routers every 2 minutes. This is not necessarily malicious, but better to keep it off the network. You just need to add the MAC id once for each bit of wifi equipment.

I specifically said MAC filtering is NOT for improved security.

Regarding choosing an uncongested network, this is something that 90% of users have no clue about. It is worthwhile at least raising awareness if this.

The multicast rate I was talking about has nothing to do with stopping rendevouz or streaming. This is concerning the router gradually decreasing the wifi speed to get a reliable signal. If you have a good signal, you can increase the lower limit.

Perhaps you should read what was said, and not what you think the article said.
