There is no ready exploit for WPA. There are big reasons to leave SSID broadcasting. Why work so hard when you can be secure?
I have a home network with 3 laptops, 2 desktops and a PS3. I've been using the DHCP from the router for some time now but I want to configure Static IPs for my network and get rid of the DHCP pool in case someone makes it through my security.
My question is that 2 of my laptops are used at work and I want to set up an Alternate configuration for home. 1st. If I set up an Alternate Configuration with a static IP will the user be able to connect to my router seemlessly or would the user have to do some clicking to connect? (The user on this machine is not computer savvy, so the easier the better)
2nd. One of the laptops is a MAC. Does that have the option for an alternate configuration? If it doesn't then I'm won't bother. I ask this instead of clicking around myself because the less clicking I have to do on a MAC the better chance my sanity will remain in tact.
(If it does have this option question 1 applies here as well. Will it automatically connect without clicking?)
Also both laptops use Dynamic IPs at work.
While I want to do this for added security, I can't imagine someone spending the time to go through the security I do have to get into a home network, especially since Network Stumbler shows a couple of unsecured networks around me. I guess this is more for fun than anything but it certainly can't hurt.
Thanks in advance for your help.
