  1. I would like somebody from Apple to confirm or advise that AirPort Extreme is safe from wi-fi crooks. i.e people who access the web via your wi-fi to avoid leaving a trace on their computers of where they have been.

  2. Anyone seems to be me…?
    Anyway, there’s a good way to protect a wlan”
    1. Setup a closed network
    2. Use mac address filter
    3. Use WPA/WPA2 encryption

    Either somebody tries hard to connect to your wlan or leaves you alone choosing one of thousand other networks without protection to surf for free. All 3 features used together are not to crack(?). Did anybody have success so far?

    Anyone there to continue?

  3. had an article on how crap WEP is. But i can’t figure out how to enable WPA on my new BookPro. I mean I know were all the options are but it doesn’ t let me (greyed out) or says I’m not supported ??? Anyone know a good help guide.

  4. By the way MDN. That flashing ‘YOU WON’ animation on the right is not good design practice. And garanteed I can com back in 2 weeks and I’ll still be the 999,999th visitor.
