    This script came from an idea from kameleon in another thread.
    It will turn on Amber SES led when unauthorized mac is connected.

    Fill in auth1 , auth2 ..etc with your authorized mac's
    Note: MAC spoofing is easy so this may not be the best warning!

    ## Unauthorized Wireless Conn Notice
    if [ ! -x /tmp/wlnote ] ; then
    cat > /tmp/wlnote <<EOF
    auth1='<your auth'd mac here>'
    auth2='<your auth'd mac here>'
    asstest=$(wl assoclist|grep -ve "$auth1" -ve "$auth2")
    if [ -n "$asstest" ] ; then
       led amber on white off
       logger Unauthorized wireless access attempted!
       led amber off white off
    chmod +x /tmp/wlnote
    cru a wlnote "*/2 * * * *" /tmp/wlnote

    Why not just use the MAC address filtering built into the firmware? Why make make this into yet another thing you have to monitor and deal with when you could let the router deal with it in a completely automated fashion? Also, for wireless security it's best to just to use WPA with TKIP and a very strong password (extremely long and extremely random).

    Why not eat steak for dinner on Thanksgiving instead of turkey? I don't know I just felt like doing it.

    It doesn't work for me anyways, neither does my other script... driving me nuts I don't know why they don't work.

    One of your script is just great: is the one with SES lighting-up when PPPoE connection is made. Keep up the good work and thanks ! :clap:
