Is a MAC whitelist more or less secure than WPA/WEP security? Answered
I currently have WPA security set on my home wireless network. It works nicely to limit access only to those to whom I give the password. However, it's a real pain to try getting Linux-running laptops to connect to it. Same with my BlackBerry.
I'm considering disabling security entirely and instead creating a "whitelist" of MAC addresses of the wireless devices I want to allow access. Is this a bad idea? Will I be leaving my network vulnerable in a way I'm not foreseeing?
