How about to take SEPARATE DEVICE and create SEPARATE (HIDDEN) WiFi (only for Newton)?

I have like that: Separate device with hidden SSID, low power (to don’t spread signal outside the house). It working over year. No problems.

It’s much better that MAC address filtering and any WEP security. Think, even if you have MAC address filtering and any WEP - both of them are easy to hack. So, if someone will (big ‘if’) focus on you to hack your network - it WILL be done - anyway. So, MAC filtering and WEP - both are mock security. And WEP on Newton drastically decreases connection speed and stability.
