Hmm.. ok. Looks easy enough.

Once my DLink has DHCP disable the MAC filtering is also disabled. Sux becuase I don't want to use WEP/etc to slow down my speed and I don't want someone using my WiFi since I'm in a townhome and I can see various signals myself.

Wonder if the 300 has MAC filtering. Then it wouldn't hand out IPs to those not on the list and trying to surf on my WiFi signal.

MAC filtering will only "save" you from the most casual of all hackers, and you can get the same approximate security by turning off "SSID Broadcast" anyway.

Anyone who is sniffing your network and is able to find the SSID in the broadcast packet will also be able to find your MAC address in the same packet.

If you cannot run with any form of security, then just turn off SSID broadcast. Your network will be pretty trivial to break, but adding MAC address filtering won't make it that much harder. And if you have neighbors with fully open networks, they're probably better targets.

Make darned sure you are running firewalls on all wired and wireless clients on that LAN, and that any network shares are hidden behind complex username/password schemes.

What do you think of Network Magic?

Oh... seems the 300 is 10Mbps only. When I plug my laptop directly into it this is always the speed I get. So I'd think this is slowing my LAN and WAN speeds.

Never used it. Interesting concept, but I suspect they are "detecting wireless intruders" by using MAC address, which is easily spoofed.

It may make it somewhat more convenient to have a more secure network, kinda like the "secure easy setup" stuff in the newer Linksys routers - doesn't make it any more secure, but it makes it more likely that someone will use a more secure configuration. Smile

True...

One advantage I have is I run 802.11a. It helps but it's not a show stopper either.

Appreciate your help. Have another question. I'm doing all this for a NAS. I want family to access it. It has FTP and Samba loaded on the device. Seems Samba is only for LAN use and FTP for WAN. I plugged in port 27015 to use as it was recommended and used the port forwarding on the Linksys RPT300. But, I'm not able to hit it. Any ideas?

Should be able to use any good browser to access the NAS when setup correctly to as they function for FTP as well... correct?

hmm.. I think I tried this last night and it didn't work. Too late to remember.

If I attached the NAS to the Linksys I could do port forwarding and it could be accessed via the internet. But... could it be access on my desktop via My Network Neighborhood. The 300 uses the 15.1 and the DLink was using .0.1.

If you are all on one LAN, then the NAS should work. If you want to use FTP, then you don't need to forward anything - the local clients should be able to access it directly.

Well... I'd like for them to use there browser as some don't even know what FTP software is. But... I haven't been able to access it via a browser yet. I get a basic error message.

Can you ping its IP address?

I can get to FTP servers by typing ftp://servername into both IE and Firefox, then it prompts for username and password if needed. You can also express it as ftp://username@server and it will only prompt them for the password.

Not specifying the ftp:// prefix forces the browser to start with http protocol.

In Firefox I do:

ftp://xx.xxx.xx.x(ip address from Comcast) :27015

I get asked for the user name and pwd. I enter it and get the following:

"530 Not Logged In"
