reeldeal Posted July 7, 2004 Report Share Posted July 7, 2004 I've had a wireless network running in my parents house for awhile because it was nice to come home and not have to plug anything in, and just be able to surf. however, i am going to be moving to a "real" city and want to take the wireless router with me. problem is i don't understand the security at all on it. i used to broadcast ssid and didn't use wep or anything because their house was pretty isolated. however, when i try to disable ssid broadcast or use wep i get about 50% signal loss. which is obviously ridiculous. i know when i was in university that you'd have to register the mac address of your network adapter to be able to access the internet. is there any way to do this with the router? as in allow only certain mac addresses access? i only seem to be able to block certain mac addresses...which is the exact opposite of what i need. i know this is a pretty common router so if anyone has any input please let me hear it. thanks, mark Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
