    WiFi Security questions for network gurus
    Hello everyone,

    I have just replaced my DIR-655 with a 3TB Time Capsule.
    All this made me revise my security.

    - I have hidden my SSID (I do know that it can be sniffed)
    - I have changed the default name
    - I have MAC filtering (again I do know that it can be spoofed)
    - I have set a WPA2 15 character long password (including CAPS, lowercase, special character and numbers. - It is not a word from the dictionary)

    - Could I do anything else to improve the security of the network?
    - Is there any way to know if someone had access to my network?

    I do not use any antivirus on my iMac, MBP... I was using ESET NOD32 before but after doing some research, it wasn't that necessary.

    Thanks for all advices

    Using WPA2 Personal and not WEP is the strongest protection.

    Everything else is A OK.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
