I am in the process of opening up a wireless guest network for one of my schools.   All Internet traffic will be directed through my content filter appliance so access to the Internet will be restricted the same way it is on my internal wireless network.  My question to you all would be;  Should I open it up so that anyone can get on it with no security, or should I utilize the Mac ID and encryption key needed options?  Looking forward to everyone’s opinions.  Thanks…Vinnie
