    Folks,

    I got an old Wifi (wep security only) with a poor coverage range in my house, and a friend of mine suggested me to turn off WEP cryptography and to assign fisically with MAC address, both increasing range and garanteeing some security:

    2 questions:

    a) Is this an acceptable solution?

    b) well....how do I find MAC address in Ipod Touch?


    Thanks in advance!

    Not sure if this would truly improve your wifi coverage.
    I have both WEP security and MAC address filtering and still have a very good coverage.
    MAC address is easy to find though
    settings/general/about/wifi address
    and the wifi address is your mac address

    Well my bedroom is little bit far from the antenna, so if it improves just a little bit, it might help...i'll test it!
