Subject: RE: Wireless access

And addendum to that question, do any wireless routers contain tools so that 
you can block all but specific hardware addresses? 

Most wireless routers even the low end types like linksys products are capable of filtering by specific mac address.  
As far as administering one of these devices, I personnally fill that with the user manual and the html interface a 
monkey could decently secure a home WAP.  It's unbelievable how many people out their have installed wap's with only 
the default settings.  At least if you need to get on the Internet in a pinch you can usually just drive into a 
residential neighborhood.
