Re: Secure Your Wireless Network.

Hi CF and all, new member but been following a lot of the posts recently (keeping an inPhormed view).

My question reference securing wifi is how much does higher encryption slow down todays typical laptops.

I secured my daughters (Vista home basic, 1gb ram, pentium M....yep wish we waited for dual core but I digress), with WPA+PSK 128 bit key. Ever since she has experienced occasional freeze of her computer.

Ideally we want good security, recently I enabled MAC filtering too, but would lowering the key to 64 bit help her CPU cope better?, I have a feeling this is the root of her problems.
