Ok My schools digital media lab is about to undergo some chances some welcomed some imposed by the "Omni-precent and all knowing" IT head. Currently we have 2 labs 1 wired one with old 500 mhz G4 Graphites and 1 wireless with Quicksilver 733 mhz in it. The Wired lab will be upgrading to G5s and the Wireless lab has just converted to a wired lab and the airport cards removed(no real reason for them being there but no real reason for them to be removed either). I can accept that, but what i (and many other students with laptops) can't accept is his insistance on doing away with the access point entirely. I should have a chance to talk to him tomorrow morning, my proposal is the implementation of MAC filtering then having us registering our laptops, i know it'd be a pain in the butt but it would make the little powermonger control freak happy. Sorry about that i got caught up in the moment and forgot about what i was going to ask. Is MAC filtering a viable option? Any other thing we could propose cheaply other hten RADIUS and WEP? I know MAC addresses can be faked and WEP cracked, but how easily? I guess i'm looking for anything you can tell me that way i am alittle more educated on the subject then i already am. Possible reponses to this proposal he might have, and rebuttals i could use would be much appreciated.
