Read this article,  this is pretty bad. Despite many of my vociferous objections about implementing wireless on your trusted network, many of my client’s are doing just that. Everyone loves the convienance of wireless tech but we always must remember that this is a security hole. Sure you can implement a ton of encryption to cover the hole but the hole is still there.

    WPA + MAC filtering is the way I operate. I don't know how secure it is but it's better than WPA alone I suppose. I'm sure if someone is REALLY determined they can get into my network but it would almost be too much of a hassle considering there are so many WIDE open networks out there.
