Hey Everybody, I am not new to wireless networking as I have had one for a good while now, but I got sick and tired of my stupid Belkin router never wanted to connect so today I bought a D-Link one and my question is as follows: Is there a way to secure a wireless network by simply only allowing the MAC ID's of my systems, so no one else can access the network and if I do this will I need a password then for my wired connections? Currently I still have my belkin router connect but I will be connecting my new one, but right now I am using WPA I'm not sure if it is 2 or what, but I have it setup up where I have a password and I can type it in any system and it connects and I know it does not help protect anything since I know I entered a wrong password before on purpose and it did connect. I would like a way so basicly only my laptop can get on wirelessly to the internet. Also I got this off PC World: "The first line of defense for your Wi-Fi network is encryption, which encodes the data transmitted between your PC and your wireless router. Unfortunately, most routers ship with encryption turned off, and many users don't turn it on, leaving themselves completely exposed" Are they talking about a password or something else? Thank you very much, I know it shows I don't know too much about wireless networking security.
