Closed != Invisible
Authored by: klieb2002 on Jul 05, '02 01:40:11PM

The above author's point is still valid, but it should be noted that access control via MAC is different from the "closed network" option of Airport. The following is from the document "Designing Airport Networks."

"The closed network option provides additional security by hiding the name of the network created by the Airport Base station."

Access control, which involves specifying which MAC address may access the wire network, is a separate feature, and may be enabled or disabled without interacting with the closed network setting.
