Thanks for taking time to read my query. I'm trying to set up a Linksys WRT54g for a friend who has a Comcast Motorola cable modem. After doing some research I decided to employ WPA + TKIP. Initially I thought there would be a single computer (i.e. the one used to originally register the MAC address) accessing the Linksys router which is hooked up to the Comcast modem. Now I'm told that a second computer plus a Wii will require access.
Here's my question. Since the Comcast modem will only accept one MAC address, is the following the most efficient and secure set up:
1) Clone MAC address from the original computer to the Linksys modem.
2) Use WPA2 + AES encryption
3)Obtain the MAC addresses of the 2nd computer and the WII and then use MAC address filtering to limit access.
I've done a lot of research, but feel honestly that I'm in over my head. So your help will be very much appreciated!

3) you could add MAC address filtering; however, I do not think it is really necessary since WPA2+AES is as secure as it can get. Should you be concerned about family members handing out the wireless pass-phrase then yes enable MAC address filtering.
