How do I correctly set up 2 routers (one is wireless) with WPA and MAC Adress filtering?
Posted on 2008-10-19
I wish to reconfigure existing linksys router to be sure it is correctly using WPA and MAC Adressing with my PC, and future additional PC.
Hooked to this router I was planning on adding a wireless router also using WPA and MAC Adressing (I think...not solid on concepts). This wireless router I've managed to configure for WPA with the wireless portion and (if I am understanding correctly) want to also use MAC Adressing.
The only thing I plan to use with the wireless is a couple of WPA & MAC Adressing compatible wireless internet radios. I don't know how this all works but the radios are capable of working without the PC and was hoping to do this in such a way that I could turn off PC without effecting radio operation.
The DSL connection is earthlink passworded and this worries me in relation to the radios stand alone...but they support stand alone operations so I am assuming I can handle this without a problem.
I am assuming once the PC is off, my routers are safe from hacking even if they will be on Internet.
If I have said things wrong, please guide me to the True path of doing it right....thanks
PS I wam wondering if I am asking too much and this should be 500 points? feedback?
