Will be loaning a linksys wrt54g router to a friend. for the friend I will set it to allow the MAC address. I would also want to stop broadcasting the network.
He may want to allow access to others with a password. If broadcasting is stopped how would others find that network to connect to? Is this possible? Is there a feature in linksys routers to enter a network/SSID by name then enter a password?
Also, this is an opportunity to try remotey connecting to a router for administration. I have read that there is significant vunerability in this. I would ask what are the specific exploits and how can one mitigate any exposure?
