Daphne,

OK, point conceded, disabling SSID isn't the end-all and be-all of security. That's why I use WPA2 + MAC filtering. But, it's a reasonable step to take to:

A) Make me less of an obvious target to the suburban script-kiddies in my neighborhood, and

B) Prevent "Joe-next-door" from trying to log onto my network through his sheer laziness in failing to prioritize his network association preferences.

If someone wants to hack me, they will, but I believe in doing all the simple things I can to reduce the threat from both intentional and accidental intrusion.

That said, does anybody have some ideas I can try to make this work?

TIA

Marc
