IF you use MAC Address Filtering what is the effect?

If you enable Enable MAC Address Filtering on a Westell verizon wireless router D90-327W15-06. Will this add enough protection in addition to a medium strenght WPA key to keep from being hacked into?

Thanks,

Joey

MAC address filtering adds almost nothing in the way of security if someone is actually interested in getting into your network. Spoofing a MAC address is trivial.
