someone can go right ahead and download child **** on there PC on my Internet. Good luck trying to find it on My PC(*) or matching th MAC Address up with my PC


and if you do something as simple as do MAC address filtering it will STOP alot of newbie hackers or normal people from getting on the Wireless.
and if you dont broad cast your connections then its even safer.
all you do it just add the peoples MAC address you want to use the connection and give them the Wireless NAME and Bam there on and no one else can get on.

Wouldnt that almost be like reselling the internet to your neighbors? I'm sure the cable company must have a policy on that.

in the extremely unlikely event that someone you didnt know downloaded child **** using the small area of internet connectivity surrounding your house and somehow your router somehow gave all of the computers identical IP addresses, all youd be looking at really is having your computer confiscated until they are searched and the search reveals nothing. then you get a huge settlement because this is america where we sue even if we find something so small as a finger in our chili or our coffee is too hot or our RV doesnt have an auto-pilot.

seriously, youre doing yourself a disservice if you DONT let someone download child **** using your connexion.

if someone wants to download child ****, there are easier ways to get wireless internet than to drive around for it. its called: IHOP. and if its your neighbors, wouldnt you want to find out they had a penchant for the yunguns?
