Odd. No mention of MAC filtering in that article at all.
MAC filtering should have been covered the same as hiding the SSID. Maybe it wasn't because MAC filtering is complex enough to prevent widespread use, hiding the SSID is far easier being an on/off setting. I have given up on using MAC filtering upon reaching 7 wireless clients, the benefit is not enough to justify the effort. I don't even enable it for others even with only one client, only a speed bump to the determined.
