Default WEP, to be or not to be

Since I reset my router my WEP key is gone. I could so easily reach over and put it back in but is it really worth it? Ive heard its already been cracked and its a big hassle for XBL and other gaming connections.

Default Re: WEP, to be or not to be

Not worth it IMO. It has been cracked, but it would take someone that had nothing better to do a while to do it. It just adds an extra layer of security. That's all. Mac filtering would do just fine, unless you know some hackers in your area, and they want whats on your PC.
