Re: Encrypted wireless

I have a wireless DSL router set up at home. I currently don't use
encryption, so it's essentially a free-for-all and I've noticed some
freeloaders and the router doesn't provide any way to restrict access
other than by setting up encryption (side question: anyone know of a
wireless router that can restrict access by MAC address?). I tried
setting up 64-bit encryption and adding an entry in
/etc/pcmcia/wireless.conf on my laptop. No dice. Anyone know what
the appropriate entry would look like?
Can anyone suggest a tutorial/How-To on setting up wireless PCMCIA
cards to work on an encrypted wireless network?
i also configure my wireless card (eth1) it through
# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)
# The loopback interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The first network card - this entry was created during the Debian
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface eth1 inet dhcp
when I plug the card or if i boot, hotplug scripts bring the interface up.
I use it with a netgear switch (802.11g) which support the mac-address
restrictions. I was just a little disapointed to learn that encryption
was not so difficult to break... but it seems to be common to all
wireless device (protocol is buggy).
