Interesting. I will add that to my web page. Thanks for the update.

Don't let your reflexes take over your reason :)
o Not broadcasting your ssid
o Filtering on MAC addresses
are only half-secure band-aids that date from an era where not even WEP
If you have top-notch WPA PSK AES encryption setup, you don't play in
the same ballpark anymore: you play one level higher in terms of
security. You absolutely don't need those pathetic band-aids anymore. In
particular, you can broadcast your ssid in confidence: absolutely nobody
can use your AP unless they have the secret key.
