    I would like to use my new Mini as a point-to-point wireless server (since I already have a wireless router that I hard-wire to the Mini) for direct communication with only one user/device. Is it possible to set up an access point that can be dedicated to only one computer (or iPhone in this case)? I understand that creating a computer-to-computer network in Wifi prefs allows anyone access to the network (granted they know a WEP password). Since the WEP protocol isn't very secure, I would like the added benefit of limiting access to a single specific device. ...perhaps limiting the DHCP pool somehow? ...or limiting access to certain MAC addresses?

    Any help would be appreciated.
