Re: MAC address

"However, I had some cases where the key is linked to the device's MAC, which can of course also be spoofed (did that once or twice, first connected the phone, then tried with the laptop, had to cahnge the MAC to connect...)."

Tethering is easier and recharges your phine at the same time, still remember the surprise from a hotel about the amount of data my phone sent and received of the wifi ;)
