Ok so other than restricting MAC addresses to only your machines and
having a WEP 128b enabled wireless network, what other measure could one
take to prevent this?

Just nothing, aside from the fact that MAC addresses could be always being  
spoofed, and WEP is crackeable and moreover in about 10 minutes....

If there's not a chance to set up either WPA or WPA2, try to set up a Radius, 
so that could improve a bit your "security", but, that's not the point, the 
point really is that WEP is going to be always a hole where intruders are 
gonna be able to go trough.
All the best.
