I use mac address authentication plus wpa2 psk and yet they are still
able to connect so it seems that 2Wire's routers are an insecure piece
of crap and they are full of holes and back-doors. Just google 2wire
vulnerabilities or take a look at this video

Look at how many ISPs world-wide use 2wire. Makes you wonder if ISPs
use these crappy routers on purpose to get some more revenue from cap
overruns.
