Palm Wireless Network

I've setup the WiFi network for the School of Sport Palm trial - using an Apple Airport Extreme hub. I've configured it using MAC address filtering & WEP to make it secure - only devices with MAC addresses listed in the database can actually connect to the wireless network! By locating the WiFi access point centrally ( in one of the SOS Tutors offices) - we're getting coverage of both the admin/lecturers offices and the classroom, and a little outside coverage as well. All for $300 NZ! Both Tutor laptops and Palm Lifedrives are connecting successfully to the wireless network.
