How can you secure a wireless network connection but also make it easy for authorized users to have

How can you secure a wireless network connection but also make it easy for authorized users to have access? I don't want to leave the network vulnerable, but if nobody can access it, what good is it?
That is understandable; there is always the balance between security and usability. First go for the easy stuff. Choose a WAP that supports WPA as it's a much better choice than WEP. Consider using static IP addresses and implementing MAC filtering. I just did a one hour seminar (which debuts on March 16) on implementing wireless for SearchSMB.com. It's free so check it out hopefully it will help you with your pending task.
