I now use WPA without Broadcasting SSID and use Mac filtering so only my Two macs and Two PC can use the Internet

That is a VERY good point. You have to get the key exactly right on BOTH ends or it's not going to work. I have had to troubleshoot peoples WiFi that would not get on the net and maybe 75% of the time that was the issue. What I do is type the HEX code and copy it into the Copy/Paste buffer from the router and paste it into the computer. That has always worked for me with the insane WPA2 Hex codes I come up with!

If I were you I would try it again and be sure the code is right as WPA is so much more secure than WEP.

I can HACK WEP. I would never do it to anyone else but did it here at my house just to prove it can be done & to see just how long it would take. 64-Bit took maybe 30 minutes and 128-Bit over an hour. Used my iBook. You are WAY safer with WPA or WPA2. No average person could ever get in but there are people who can that drive around with laptops looking for internet plus neighbors also.
