Hi, My house has 5 computers (4 802.11g, 1 802.11n), a nintendo ds, a WRT54G v2, WRT300N v1 (Sveasoft Talisman 1.2 on both), and an Airport Extreme connected wirelessly using WDS to a DSL line. So far its working pretty well, but I have several questions I'm hoping you all can help me with. My goals are simple: 1) Have an in home network with seemless, secure, and fast wireless throughout the house. (This is challenging because the house seems to eat up wireless signals). 2) Not piss off the neighbors Here are my questions: 1) If I MAC filter do I need to use encryption? 2) Is it best to have static ips for each computer? 3) Does boosting the signal strength help that much with range, and what range do most people use? 4) Can I create a closed network that my neighbors don't even see? Is this better in general than it being visible? (I know I can do this with my AEX, but not sure about linksys) 5) General advice for setting up a seemless network? Thanks for your advice!
