Access Server or Management Tool?

    Hey Everyone,

    I'm looking into setting up some sort of access server for a wireless network I help maintain at a local school. We currently have about 5 active access points that are a mix of Linksys routers and access points (we've just been buying a new one when we need it so it's a mix of versions).

    Currently we have been using MAC address filtering since the number of devices we want connected is relatively static. But you can see where I'm going with this... you add a new device and have to log into 5 different access points and update MAC filter lists.

    What would your suggestions be to improve 1) the security (currently no encryption) and 2) ease of management?

    Thanks in advance to anyone who replies, I appreciate your time and helpfulness.
