Do you have a link for that?  I know you can setup WPA with radius
authentication (WPA enterprise, IIRC)... always meant to fiddle with
that but never got around to it.

I like securing machines, but I also like layered security.  Even the
idea of someone poking on my network, despite secured machines, wierds
me out.  =)  I like everything locked down more than is probably
necessary, but I've been doing security work for 6 years now and it's
made me paranoid.. =)
